    Dear William Hester: 
    I am very pleased to hear from you as we are cousins. Twenty-five or so years ago, I tried to contact someone from your line, but could not. Garrett Hester was my mother's first cousin. She was the daughter of John Kenton Hester b. 1865 the brother of your Willoughby Griffith Hester. She and her siblings were close to Garrett even as adults. The Hester Y_DNA Surname project includes test results for the grandson (Weston Tyler Hester) of my Uncle Weston Tyler Hester. We do not yet have as Hester match to Weston, but I expect one to turn up eventually. 
    Sorry I am rushing out the door now, but will read your material as soon as possible. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
