Looking for James Robert Hester

Between 1783 and into the. 1800’s there were Hesters living in and around Petersburg, Tennessee in Lincoln County (may have been Bedford at that time). There is a Hester Cemetery on Hannah’s Gap Road there that is very old. I believe that my ancestor ggggrandmother on the Paternal side was one Penelope Hester who married Matthias Nicholsl. Their daughter married Lemuel Bonaparte Welch and one of their children married a W. H. Hester. I know nothing about him. My ggggrandmother was born in South Carolina about 1785. She was not literate. That is about all I know. There are no Hesters living there now that I know of.
I share DNA with an Ailsey Nichols from North Carolina who has Indigenous DNA.
