Meg, I am related to Fesperman in PIKE CO. IL There were Moyers,Brothers, and Fesperman in Pike and Calhoun Cos. 1850's and before. The moved however west MO. and Ar.
My interest is in an Elizabeth Vesterman/Fesperman b. 1808+- She tells us she was born in NC. it appears she married a WINCHESTER, first child (Mary Violet) b. TN 1826, was in Calhoun/Pike 1830 birth of next child (THOMAS). Additional children Elizabeth Jane,Angeline Sara, Harriet Ann.
Elizabeth married a Burdine and had Nathaniel and Casacasa (don't know if this is the correct spelling...) They moved to Newton Co. AR 1856...Elizabeth had passed away...Burdine family was in Newton. Nathaniel had a son SylVESTER naming him after his mother.....
If you have any info on this family...please contact me.
