Two of Hugh and Barbary Isbister's grandchildren (George Newell's son William and Hugh, Jr.'s daughter Levina), being first cousins to one another, intermarried in 1848. William and Levina were my 2x great-grandparents, making me a "double Ivester," 2 of Hugh, Sr.'s sons being in my direct line!
While several of us are interested in tracing Hugh Sr.'s forebears back in Orkney, which may prove a difficult task, Ivester descendants coming upon this forum should be aware that there exists a comprehensive (if not 100% up-to-date) compilation of Hugh's descendants in America lovingly done by Janice Ivester (e-mail me privately for her address). It's well-documented (although some computer-adept Ivester descendant should take up the task of putting all of the descendants identified onto a computer family-tree program, making updates of Janice's terrific volume easier).
Merry Christmas to all my Ivester kins(wo)men!
