Lorene,

How old was Sarah Elizabeth Lester? Thomas Franklin Owensby and Nancy Morgan Owensby had a daughter who married Edward A. Lester, son of Hiram and Susan Adkinson Lester of Henry County, Georgia. Sarah was 20 years younger than Edward and married him about 1856 in Henry County, Georgia.

My great, great grandmother was Louisa Ann Elizabeth Owensby who married Hiram Jackson Lester in 1855, brother of Edward A. Lester. I believe Sarah is a sister of my gg grandmother.

Hiram Lester lived to be about 104 years old. He died in 1896 in McDonough, Georgia.
