    Hello, I, too, am a Ledgister. DeVita Mayo Ledgister to b e exact. I live in a Small New Jersey Town by the name of Sicklerville, New Jersey. I am unmarried. My decendent was Louis Ledgister from England in the 1850’s who was one of the sheriff’s appointed by the queen to restore order on the island of Jamaica. The other brothers were Christopher and Benjamin. I would like to correspond with you whenever possible. I have also wriiten a few books. I am a linguist by profession and …well….perhaps if you are interested and refer back to me UI will be more than willing to tell you more.

    All smiles,
    DeVita, perhaps a distant relative.
