[SC] FILMORE & LESTER of Marion & Dillon County, SC
Looking for any information on any of these family members from Marion & Dillon County,SC.
Joseph & Carrie Williams Lester were my great grandparents. I believe they had five children but only 2 are still living. One of them being my grandmother who is suffering from dementia. Joseph's parents were William & Fannie Wright Lester.
William & Fannie had Jospeh, Charlie, James, Luberta/Roberta, William Henry and John Gary. William remarried after Fannie's death. His second wife was Queen Victoria Filmore/Fillmore. Queen had at least 2 children before the marriage. One was name Minnie Sparks, the other one I think was name Autrey/Aubrey. William & Victoria then had: Algie, Idelia or Adelia, Perifone or Perrylone(not sure on the correct spelling), and Jasmine . Queen was also married before to a man with the surname Sparks.
Queen's parents were Andrew & Drusilla Filmore/Fulmore. Her siblings were: Preston,Elizabeth, Anthony, Cornelious, Henry and George. Preston was located living in Florida with his family. Anthony married a woman name Sophia.
Williams's parents were James & Hester James Lester. His siblings were: Clarissa, Edward, Laura, Joe, Jim, Mary, Florence, Tena, Leike and Marion.
Now this is where the combining of the two families come into play and the confusions sets in. Anthony & Sophia's daughter Luberta married William's brother name Marion Lester. Marion's first wife was Mary Alene Nowlin (Elizabeth Philmore's) daughter.
Any information on is helpful at this time.
