LESTER, ARCHER V. (1847~1937) Archer V. Lester was born on May 17, 1847 in Marshall County, Mississippi to Thomas M. Lester, of Virginia, and Elizabeth P. Pate, of Pennsylvania. In the Civil War, Lester served in Company B of the 2nd Louisiana Cavalry in Kirby Smith's Division of the Trans Mississippi Army.
