Chester Lake Dwyer has many descendants including a great, great, great, great grandson born July 11 (2017). He and his wife, Lenora Warner, of Bremer County, Iowa, moved to Cherry County Nebraska taking a land claim near Wood Lake, given to him as a civil war veteran. They had four sons, Charles, Frank, Walter and Jessie Dwyer and three daughters Fay Fancher, Retta Bentler and May Dwyer.

I am the granddaughter of Jessie who married Louisa Babbel from Koenisberg, Germany. They had two daughters, Lenora Heater and Almeda Gerling. This family moved to Newberg, Oregon in 1926. Both daughters had two children. I am Beverly Heater Zurcher, 85 years old have two children, two granddaughters and one great grandson and am the daughter of Lenora and her husband, Clarence Heater. Their son, Marvin Heater, 88, has four children, eight grandchildren and one great grandson. The other daughter has four living granddaughters and several great grandchildren.
