Summary:  The Estes family last name is spelled a variety of ways including Eastes, Estis, Estes, Eustace, Estridge, Eastye and Ewstas, among others.  We would like to find other early lines in England to test to see if other early mentions of this last name are from this family.  The family oral history is that the Estes family descends from the d’Este family from Italy.  We are searching for males descended from this line, or Estes men from Italy, to test to prove or dispell this myth.  There were two main lines into the United States, the Southern Estes line founded by Abraham Estes (number 10 below) who immigrated in 1673 and a Northern branch founded by Matthew and Richard Estes, cousins of Abraham, who immigrated to Massachusetts about 1680.  There were other mentions of Estes men in he early colonies, but no descendants have been found. 

It is believed that William Sterling Estes had a male child about 1920 born in the vicinity of Battle Creek, Michigan to a lady named Ilo who he may have been married to for a short time while he was in service and stationed at Camp Custer.  There may have been another male child as well born to another woman in this timeframe, but family whispers reference a boy named Lee who may have been adopted by a step father by the last name of Levy.  Lee may have become a minister.  It is unclear whether there are two male children or only one, and records from the vicinity in the late nineteen-teens and 1920s have not been productive.  The mother of one of these boys may have been Laila LaFontaine and she may have been from Michigan, Indiana or Tennessee (less likely locations would include Illinois and Kentucky).  William Sterling Estes was also married in the 1930s or 1940s to at least two unknown women, one in Tennessee by the name of Ethel and one in Indiana by the name of Dorothy Kilpatrick. He may have had other wives as well in the corridor between Michigan/Illinois/Indiana and Florida.  He lived at one time in the states of Tennessee, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, Georgia and Florida.  In the 1940s and 50s he was likely involved with the medical profession in some way.  Prior to that he was likely a laborer.  We would like to locate any children (or relatives) of William Sterling Estes.
