"2.5.6. Hermanus Kester, [Jr.], born 17, 5th month 1744; married Rachel
Webster 14, 10th month [Dec] 1762." (p 140)
2.5.6. Hermanus Kester, the son of Hermanus and Anne (Large) Kester, was born 17 July 1744. He married Rachel Webster 14, 10th month 1762. Rachel was born 28, 11th month 1742. Hermanus was taxed as a household in Kingwood Twp, Hunterdon County, NJ in 1778. He owned one cow and one pig. His name does not appear on the 1780 tax list. The family may have moved to Morris County, NJ area as their son, Richard, was married there."

***HERMANUS KESTER, JR., 8, 9th mo, 1774"
QUESTION: No spouse given above. Is this the correct man, and if so, then
was their marriage delayed? This is supported by the fact that they did not
have their first child until 1774.

Kester-482 and Kester-79 appear to represent the same person because: Kester-79 and Kester-482 are a match and 482 should be merged into 79. Same dates, spouse and relatives.
