My question involves the name IVESTER. To the best of my knowledge, the first of the IVESTER names were George and Rebecca. George IVESTER was the son of John B. IVESTER from Chester Co., Pennsylvania. He married Rebecca DAVIS in 1851. They had six children, Martha, William H., Emma, Olive, Allie, and Mina.
My father, Harold T. WRIGHT, Jr., is the son of Helen KEPNER and Harold T. WRIGHT, Sr. Helen KEPNER's maiden name was IVESTER and she was the daughter of Emma, who died when she was born. Mattie (Martha) raised her and two nephews.
The IVESTER house in Arcanum was the homestead and it was built by William in 1875. When Mattie died in 1924, she donated the land that is now Ivester Park. My father lived in this house when he was a young child. If you have any further information, please let me know.
