  Birth Notes:

Lem's birth date has been determined from a combination of records. He was consistantly 17, 27, 36 & 47 in census records from 1900-1930 which matches with the July 1882 birth date listed in 1900. Lem's sister was listed in 1900 as born in Apr 1884 so it's more likely that Lem's birth year was 1882.

Grave Marker: L. Z. Hester, Welcome Baptist Church Cemetery, Cullman County, Alabama. 2916 Date of birth on this headstone (11 Jul 1884) is likely incorrect. Lem's age was consistantly listed in census records as 17, 27, 36 & 47 in 1900-1930 matching with the July 1882 birth date listed in 1900. Lem's sister was listed in 1900 as born in Apr 1884.

Date of death on this headstone (1 Jun 1930) is definitely incorrect based on his death certificate which shows he died on 7 Jun 1935.

Double stone with his aunt, Martha "Mattie" Bennett who was his mother's twin sister.
