Hi. Perhaps the Kanester genealogy book that you mention is the one that my aunt produced in the 1990s? She followed the Canadian Kanester back as far as the John Henry Kanester mentioned here. She could not go back further at that time as the Internet genealogy resources did not exist at the time. Now, you can find lots of references to Frederick Kanester in the same Virginia county as John Henry and continuing after John Henry departure for Tennessee.
I and a number of family members in Canada have the book.
