My name is Pamela Sellers. John Charles Vester and Jennie E. Hawkins were the parents of Myrtle Mirah/Myra Vester who married James Alexander Carr. They had children named Jennie Elizabeth, Edna Helen, Jimmie Allen, Lola Mae and Lorine Carr. My grandmother, Jennie Elizabeth married William Clay Charles in Canyon TX and later moved to NM. They had two daughters, Betty Jean and Billie Ann. From what I read, we are definitely related!

We are looking into the story of John Charles Vester as told by my aunt. She heard through family stories that he was on a wagon train where his parents became ill and died. The children were left alone. Two older brothers left to find help and never returned. Another wagon train found them and John C. was left at the Vester farm who adopted him. Have you heard this before? We can't find any mention of his parents names.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
