I don't know, but I can give you a tip hopefully could help you find the tie.
Hester is a family associated with many families in Covington County, most of whom can be traced to ancestors in Maryland.
My tip, which may be worthless, is that the family you should be looking for may be spelled CORBIN. Though Corbin has roots both in Virginia and Maryland in this country, it is specifically intermarried with ancestors of Covington County, Alabama. Many of these families moved on to Mississippi.
