8.  William S. Bryan & Robert Rose.  1876.  A History of the Pioneer Families of Missouri.  Bryan, Brand & Co., St. Louis, MO:
p. 256 ESTELL.—Benjamin Estell, of Kentucky, married Anna Claughnaugh and settled in Boone Co., Mo.  They had ten children, and one of their sons, named James, married Matilda VanBibber, daughter of Major Isaac VanBibber, and settled in Montgomery county.  Their children were — Horatio, Elizabeth A., William K., Isaac V., Pantha, Colelia C., Robert G., Jonathan, Arrata, James W., Benjamin, and Sarah N. — Philemon Estell, a brother of James, settled in Montgomery county and was married three times.
"Pantha" is Iantha; "Colelia" is Cornelia; "Arrata" is Erretta; Sarah's middle initial is "M."  The informant missed Rachel and Frances, altogether — unless someone has reason to believe they were Matilda's nieces, not her daughters.
