Welcome to the Lester Family History web site. This site deals with the Lester family from St. Helens, Lancashire, England. English coal miners who immigrated to the United States in 1887-1888 and worked in the coal mines of Pennsylvania.They settled in Centre, Dauphin, Westmoreland, and Cambria counties. You will see below the links to the individual histories of the persons that immigrated, you will want to start with Henry Lester Sr. At the bottom of the page you will find a directory this will tell you the children to each individual immigrant to help you find your branch of the family or place of interest. Click on the link of the immigrant of interest, this will take you to a brief history on that person and the links to the individual historys of their decendents. You will find nothing more than a name for living family members out of respect for their privacy. There are also links for the Loughner and Hesketh families below. On this site you will find maps, census records, obituaries, pictures, and other various documents. You will find these under each individual history and they will pertain to that person and their family. I thank you for visiting the Lester Family History site.
