Clester Relatives going back to Peter of Germany

Clester Relatives going back to Peter of Germany

Surnames: Clester-Yargus-Van Dorin
I have been reading the messages posted here, and thought I would add our two cents worth. My husband, Kermit Edwin Yargus is a great, great, great grandson of Peter I from Germany. He and Louis Clester are third cousins--Louis and Kermit's Great-Grandfathers were brothers.

Kermit will be 87 this year,so we are really trying to get a lot more Clester information as he enjoys learning about his ancestors, and sometimes, we have found a person that he recalls his mama talking about. ( His mother was Ola Myrtle Clester.) He has a LOT of stories about family members.

We have a website on called Yargus Footprints, and we have more Clester info than Yargus! A lot of old pictures, etc. I would be happy to send you an invite if you would be interested in taking a peek.

I will try to give you any info that I have, too.

I am very interested in learning more about the Clester's. My family descends from William Clester (son of Jacob Clester b. 1783) and Ellen Gibson's daughter Lucinda Clester who married John McGee. Veru interested in viewing your Yargas site...would love an invitation. Looking forward to learning more and as well as sharing information on my line.

Please contact me at Thanks.

It is noteworthy! Kermit's mother's mother was Mary LUCINDA Van Dorin before she married James Clester and became Lucinda Clester! It was a small world, and names were carried closely.

I am interested in informationon the Clester family also. We know very little beyond the marriage of William Clester and Ellen Gibson. I would love to be able to see any old family pictures that you have posted to your MyFamily website. I am descended through:

William Clester/Ellen Gibson
George Washington Clester/Hattie Marsh
George Vernon Clester aka Joseph H. Baker/Amy Shaw
Billy Marsh Clester aka Billy Marsh Mault/Martha Fields
Deena Lynne Mault

Thank you for any help.

Hi, I just now saw this page for the first time. My great grandmother is Leota Marion Yargus, so Ola Myrtle Clester would be my great great grandmother. I never met my biological grandfather (Boggs), or any of his family.
