Kester-2040 and Kester-1788 appear to represent the same person because: OK, now that I have looked at the attached few census, on the family members and on Joseph, both Kester-1788 and Kester-2040 match up enough. Doing this on regular computer at home and not looking at it on the small smartphone really helped also .... Butch I am requesting the merge for you again.

Kester-1788 and Kester-2040 do not represent the same person because: Is there is further source information or relatives attached to Kester-2040? Just to be able to confirm is he is a match, in my own records I have many Joseph Kester's that are that close of a match but I know they are not one in the same. Just looking for further source data to confirm.
