I was just at the Family History Library and found this:
1910 Fed. Pop. Census for Stoddard County, Castor Twp., Missouri.
Hester, Louis N., age 54, b. KY
Arminta, wife, age 45, b. TN
John, son, age 31, b. MO
Archie, son, age 21, b. MO
Leon, son, age 18, b. MO
May A., dau, age 15, b. MO
Eddt, son, age 8, b. MO
Hope you can use this info. I am also researching the HESTER's. My grandfather was William Henry Hester and lived in Stoddard Co.
