Hi Donald,
Just found your article about our common Palatine ancestors, Valentine Presler and Johann Phillip Greisler (Chrysler). Enjoyed reading it very much. May I copy some of it for family members? Will give credit of course.

father: Robert F. Presley
grandfather: Eugene Alfred Presley
g grandfather: Oscar F. Presley
gg grandfather: Levi H. Presley -Springville, Ala
Levi, and his wife Mary, had a daughter, Mary, who married Joseph Light. Joseph Light was murdered in Chattanooga, TN, in 1898, by a man named Chambers. Joseph and Mary had a son, Joseph Light b. 1896, that Levi raised until his death in 1916, as Mary, his daughter, died around 1900. From what I've read, he was a 2nd Lt. in WW1, and died in 1952. My grandfather, Eugene A. Presley, b. 1895, also served in WW1. Would like more information on Joseph Light, please!{the son Levi raised}. I'm hoping that he might have passed on some stories to his sons/grandsons that might tell us about why Joseph Light, the father, was murdered, and the outcome of that story. Also, if my grandfather and Joseph Light {son} might have ever crossed paths in the military. Not much to ask, huh? GRIN! Thanks, y'all. Lemme know whatever you might contribute! I'll share likewise!

I am trying to research my family history. I see Martha’s parents were Levi Preslar and Lydia Diggs. And Levi’s father was John S Preslar and his wife was Martha Ann Griffin.

While researching Hall/Bethel family lines from Cold water, MS, I found a draft registration card of Cleveland Bethel. He lists his occupation as a share cropper and his employer as Jno H. Presley. I can email you the document if you're interested. I was wondering if Jno Presley was a former slaveowner.

I am descended from Hans Jurie Preslar's line. Robert Lee Presley, son of Caleb (Cobb) Preslar, is my g-grandfather. I am seeking more details about Robert Lee, what became of his brothers & sisters, and if possible, how he came to be living with the Montgomerys as a young child. I heard somewhere that there was a fire and Robert was orphaned, but I'm not sure that's the case. I think his sister, Mary, was living with the W.B. & Pernecy White Montgomery family by the time of the 1880 Census (Hardin Co, TN).

I have been researching my Palatine ancester and had found a webpage describing the Palatine migration to America. I did not know that the "eddunn" book referenced was in the Elvis Presley family web site. I must say that the first three chapters in the Dunn book are well researched and written.

Charles born 1765 was a farmer. He owned slaves. He was an Associated Reformed Presbyterian. He was married to Eliza Jenkins, She was born 1780

The PRESSLEY family may have come from County Down, Abbeville County, Ireland.

I found a long article in the Union County Heritage (from 1981). There are also some articles on the Phillips family (Joe Phillips was married to both Elizabeth Pressley and Sarah Pressley).

Charles Pressley, son of JOhn Pressley, was born between the years of 1755 and 1774. Charles came to America around 1776. He settled in Union District, SC, where he pursued the occupation of farming.

Charles died in 1821. On 27-December-1821, his estate was appraised by James Mayes, John Rochell and William Wright. Lewis Pressley was named the administrator of the estate. In January 1822, the inventory of Charles Pressley's estate was filed. In it the following notes were due: Thomas Lee - $465, Dred Jones - $15, William Jenkins - $20, Edward Edwards - $19, Edward Edwards - $2, Jacob Prince - $6.50, McCord - $100, and Levi Presley (sic) - $165.00. This info is found in the Union County, SC Probate Court Record, Box 11, Pkg 32.

Family traditional history holds that Charles Pressley was a French Huguenot, who came to America ca. 1776 fleeing religious persecution. This tradition is found in the writings of Charles Pressley's grandson, the Reverend Charles William Pressley Phillips. Other research indicates the family followed the path of prosecuted Protestants from Ireland, who settled in SC, and were strongly supportive of the Associated Reformed Presbyterian Church.

Martha Ann Jones b. abt 1830 probably in Montgomery Co. Ala.
M. Holden Presley abt 1846 probably in Conecuh Co. Al.
Martha Ann E died between 1870- 1880 Santa Rosa Co. Fla.
Holden Presley Married Alice Powell.Oct. 22, 1878.
Holden was born 1824, died before 1900 census and is buried inthe Crain Cemetery in sec7, #403 in the town of Pace, Fla. near Milton, Santa Rosa Co. Fla.
Holden's sister Mary Presley B.abt 1832 AL. (1850 censusConecuh Co. Al.p380) date of her death may have been 1855. Mary and Holden's parents may have had a connection with Floyd Presley, and that they was indian.

Their oldest son was Alex White and the youngest Cyrus White, b 1862., my grandfather.
Asa White died in Pensacola, FL in 1864. Isabella remarried some time afterwards. I'd like to know who she married and when and where did she die. Thanks

http://genforum.genealogy.com/pressley/messages/464.html
Looking for information about the ancestry and family of Sarah Pressley, born about 1765. Sarah married Levi House (b. 1754 MD), a half-Shawnee veteran of the Revolution.

Levi entered the military from southwestern PA, and they seem to have continued to live in PA until some time after 1785, when they moved to KY, possibly Harrodsburg. Levi's stepmother was Nellie Harrod House, sister of the founders of Harrodsburg. Anecdote says that she was born in KY, but several of her children said they were born in PA, so her birth in KY seems unlikely, unless Levi travelled to KY, took her back to PA, and returned several years later to KY.

Around 1810, Levi and Sarah settled in Jefferson County, Indiana, and Levi ultimately died in the home of his daughter in Ripley Co IN. We aren't sure when or where Sarah died. We can't seem to find any likely Pressley families to associate with Sarah. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Regards, Jim Patrick - tambaymar<at>aol.com

I am a decendant of Johannes V Preslar. My great great grandparents are Valentine & Susan Morton Presley, parents of my great grandfather Andrew Milton Presly who married Judah Hayes and later, Mary L. Ferrell. My grandfather Enoch Presley is the son of Andrew Milton & Mary Ferrell, who's son Luther is my dad. I have found all sorts of info on Andrew Milton Presley & Juday Hayes but hardly anything on the children of Andrew M. & Mary Ferrell. If anyone has any info on this, I would sooo appreciate it. Also, found I am the distant (9th) cousin of Elvis (lol, many of you probably are) who I just learned has roots in Scotland. I read that one of the Presleys migrated to Scotland and would also love all the info on this I can get my hands on. Brick wall here folks, I need some help. I haven't been doing this for long and it's sort of frustrating as many of you probably know. I'll give whatever info I can to whomever may want it but I'd really like to know more about Andrew & Mary's children and about the Scottish connection. So please......heellllppppp!!! Just email me at starcharmer1961@yahoo.com Thanks

I know he lived in Detroit, Michigan at one time but my Dad as born in Kentucky where my grandmother originated.

His son, Gary Edward Presley, was born May 25, 1950. That's my father. He currently lives in Georgia. To my knowlege, Charles Eugene Presley's family lived in the Lexington, KY area when he and my grandmother met.

We've had no further contact with them since His Dad's and my Grandmother's divorce when my Dad was around 5 years old. All I know to start with is he had numerous brothers, supposedly from Lexington, Kentucky area and that most if not all of the brothers were railroad workers.

Hello all, my great grandfather was Winfield Scott Pressler b abt 1894 m. Ruth Iola Dubbs in Huntington, IN. His father (my GGgrandfather) was Joseph C. Pressler b. abt 1858 m. Lillie May Sutton in Huntington, IN. This is where I hit my brick wall. I think perhaps his father might have been a man by the name of Jacob Presler (Pressler, Prestler), but am not at all certain of that. My grandfather has no knowledge of any other family members that might know anything about the family line. I am searching for someone who can help me past this brick wall. Feel free to email me at sharlastevens at msn dot com if you have any information, or want to commiserate with me on my brick wall situation (LOL). Thanks for having this site.

Comments:
Caswell Presley, born 1847, was my great grandfather on my mother's side. Caswell's son, Frank J. Presley, was my grandfather, and died in Sedalia, Missouri in 1962.

Caswell had two sets of kids. His wife Sarah Ann Jaco (Ward) Presley was my grandfather's mother.

We've always been told we were related to the Presley clan that produced Elvis. My late aunt, Francis Presley Gatlin, says she remembers Elvis' father, Vernon, coming over to play with her when they were kids.

A piece on National Public Radio's "Weekend Edition Sunday" this morning seems to add a lot to this story & also possibly offer alternate ideas about Elvis Presley's relationship to Johann Valentin Pressler.
Roots of Elvis Traced to Scotland:

This week, a researcher revealed the ancestral homeland of Elvis Presley. 300 years ago, Andrew Presley worked as a blacksmith in the tiny village of Lonmay, Scotland, and the modern-day residents of Lonmay are bracing for the potential windfall of tourism. NPR's Liane Hansen speaks with Christina Gibbons, owner of the village's only hotel, the Bancar.

Henry Hightower Preslar and Henry Montezuma Preslar are the same person. About fifteen minates after my last visit I recieved a Notorized marriage cert. of the marriage of one Henry H. Preslar and Mary Matilda Hawkins. The marriage took place on 22 Nov 1881 at the residence of W.C.Hawkins (William Carroll Hawkins) Oneida, Oneida Co., Idaho.
We, the family in Louisiana, have always known Henry's middle name was Hightower, after his mother's family. We coold not prove it until now.
Henry was born 21 Aug 1853 at Sparta, Bienville Par., LA

Henry Montezuma* Preslar was born ca 1854 Sparta,Bienville Par., La.the oldest child and son of William Culpepper Preslar and Elizabeth Ann Hightower. He married Mary Matilda Hawkins some time in 1880-1881 at Marsh Center, Bannock Co.,Idaho. They had one son, Leslie Wilson Preslar B:14 sep 1882 Marsh Center, Idaho. Henry was not a good husband and soon after the birth of Leslie he vanishes without a trace. Leslie loked for his father the rest of his life without success.
Mary Hawkins married 2nd: Lehi Wright, 12 Sep 1888 and had seven children.
* In all my research i have never seen any proof that Henry's middle name was Montezuma, although it may well have been. The family in Louisiana thought it was Hightower, but they also had no proof.
In the family it is known that Henry was a rover and a gambler. I believe that he was in contact with one of his brothers,but did not want his whereabouts known and that he was in prison somewhere, but again, no one knows for shure.

Only this: Preslar is my maiden name. I am the oldest child of four girls. Born to Otis Melvin Preslar.
My last name is now Evert.
However I have had four children Renee, Ethan, Ryan and Wesley.
Ryan was 16 years old when God called him home this last Sept.6th 2002 just five months to the day from his 17th birthday. There is a website www.highlandrebels.com where you may click on in memory of Ryan May. (my first marriage)
and see pictures of this wonderful godly young man, as he grew. You may also read the touching comments from friends and family about how he is missed and the impact of his life for Christ.
Thank you for doing the work on this site. It is very interesting and puts alot of missing puzzle pieces together.
I am not our family historian, however as I grow older, I have become more captivated with our history. It is amzaing the tapistery that has been weaved from just one man in 1710.
God Bless

Hello,
I'm a decendant of William M. Presler of Seneca County Ohio in the mid 1800's. My grandfather, Logan Presler, had organized family history and I've updated it as much as possible.
You all have a wonderful website. I see some of the same info I've come across before. Good luck!

My name is Lyman Victor STERLING. I was born in Denver, Colorado on April 26, 1927 at the Florence Crittenton Home located at 4901 W. Colfax (a home for unwed mothers) according to my State of Colorado (unsealed) Birth Certificate. My mother’s maiden name was Anna Elizabeth (or Ann) Preslar. At the time, she was 21 years old in 1927, born in Spur, Texas, but resided in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In 1944 when I attempted to enlist in the military services, I needed a Birth Certificate. My mother’s sister (Tinnie Ollie PRESLAR, my Aunt) who was extremely close to my mother throughout their lives, kept my mother’s dying secret and wish for my Aunt to look after and protect me. In this effort, my Aunt had my “originalö Birth Certificate sealed by court order and provided the Colorado Bureau of Vital Records with information regarding the “fatherö for the State to issue a “Corrected Birth Certificateö thus enabling me to join the service. At 17 years old this “correctedö Birth Certificate situation seemed unimportant.

The statistical information provided to the State by my Aunt said the following. Father’s Name: John DeWitt Sterling, Race: W, Birthplace: Illinois, Occupation: Salesman for mining equipment.

My mother passed away in 1943. Before her death, she gave my Aunt her personal Bible for her to pass on to me later in life. In 1986, my Aunt passed away and in her belongings was my mother’s Bible. The family information written in the Bible by my mother was completely different from the information provided to the State of Colorado by my Aunt concerning my Paternal Father. My mother had written.

Quote: James Norman STERLING and Marie WESTFIELD,
to this union were born five children.
Alice Lee STERLING, Richard Everet STERLING,
Norma Lee STERLING, Eunice (or Unice) Marie
STERLING, and Harold Erekley STERLING.

Harold Erekley STERLING and Elizabeth Anna
PRESLAR were married Feb. 20, 1926 at Albuquerque,
N.Mex. (There is NO RECORD of a Marriage License
haven been issued)

Harold STERLING died Feb. 14, 1927 Denver, Colo.
(There is NO RECORD of his death with the Bureau
of Vital Statistics)

Lyman Victor STERLING son of Harold and Anna
STERLING, born April 26, 1927 Mary Donaldson
Hospital Denver, Colorado
Unquote:

In 1996, I was successful getting my “originalö Colorado Certificate of Birth unsealed by the courts. The information contained therein once again caused even more confusion. All info shown on the original Birth Certificate was the same as submitted by my Aunt in 1944 when “sealingö the original except for the following:
Name of Child: Lyman Victor PRESLAR (NOTE: not
shown as Sterling)
Father’s Full Name: Albert TAYLOR
Age: 24 Color: White Birthplace: Unknown
Occupation: Salesman Mother’s Residence: New
Mexico

Today all family members are deceased except for a couple cousins my age. The information trail is colder than - you know what. If anyone in Colorado or New Mexico knows of, or has information of any of the preceding mentioned names or their descenndants, I would be extremely grateful if contacted at KKHJAC@AOL.COM

Dr. Dunn. I wrote to you long before computers. This is very good idea to join the Presslers in time.

In one family my documents show several spellings of one surname: Bressler, Bresler, Breslar, Pressler, Presler, Preslar and then the German P or B reBler.

Would anyone find this family interesting from Pennsylvania and some moved to Ohio then Indiana: Daniel Bressler then later Presler and Pressler. Daniel b. abt 1799, m. S. Gill their children: Isaac Bressler m. Elizabeth, C.Anne m. J. Moyer, Judith m. Derr, Isabella m. Shade, Lydia , Sophia m. J. Carson, William m. V. Moore, John A. m. Margaret Greer/Grier, Samuel died young. All started with Bressler surname and finally all changed to Pressler/Presler.

It is family understanding, at age 5 years, Daniel came over from Germany and no one knows with whom.

Please contact through email if there is a connection.

Hi! I represent the families of Hosea Presley/Preslar m Lovely Word. Born in NC & SC respectively, migrated from we believe FL to Louisiana in 1840. There are several Hosea's in our families and several Elias F's as well. We also have a John Pressley m Civility Presley d/o Hosea & Lovely, who came from TN and married Civility in Sabine Parish, LA. He was 28 years her senior, but nothing more is known of him or his family of origin. There are no Presley's living in Sabine Parish, LA to date. We are scattered all over the USA. We have a cousin in TN, in VA, in CA, in WA, in LA, in TX and several that haven't made themselves known to us yet, but we hope to hear from soon as we are piecing the pieces together of this Presley Family Tree.

Number one it is a fact that the North declared war on the South.
Only less than 10% of southerners owned slaves.
The governments of the seperate states put us in that war.
Most of the people of the south didn't care about the slave issue because it did not concern them and by Hosea Preslars (my 2nd greatgrandfather)own mouth the Preslar family wanted to be neutral but the Northern soldiers raided his crops, stole his livestock and he himself was wounded while hideing his family in the woods. He was in a comma about 3 months but recovered.
We decendents of Preslar confederates have no reason for shame because we were defending our own land from invasion by a forign power (The Northern States) and had no choice in the matter.
In the Preslar family records the are many of us who did go to war but in my own opinion it was in self defence . I do not feel the confederate flag is a hate issue concerning slaves but more a reminder of the innocent people who died in the most inhumane war ever fought by Americans anywhere.
There were more deaths in the civil war than WWI, WWII, Korea and Viet Nam combined.

Since then I may have added some persons to my PRESLAR FAMILY TREE. I also have some cousins that have been involved in gathering info on this same Family Tree. I feel they too would be more than happy to share their findings. One such person, Mrs. Patsy F. PIDGEON has previously been in contact with Mr. Dunn. I shall contact the others and we will go from there. Thank you, L. V. Sterling

My great-grandmother Malinda Bressler was born abut 1852, in Ohio, I suspect Fairfield County. Her parents were Henry Bressler and Lydia Egolf, who eventually were original settlers of Whitley County, Indiana. Malinda married James C. Hickey 5 March 1872 in Waterloo, DeKalb County, Indiana. I have found that, at least as far as census records are concerned, Henry and Lydia did use the name Pressler also. I would like to find additional information about this family, and will share what I have.
Thank you.

So my sister will quit bugging me, what's the connection to Elvis? Anyone out there know?

Hi, My Purdy Family has the name Pressley/Presley all thru it . Starting with Pressley Purdy 1795- ? to his grandson Samuel Pressley Purdy 1850 -1917, to his son James Pressley 1887- 1918. (James was my grand father.) Pressley had a brother, Edmond (b ca 1770), that married Sarah Smith dau of Pressley Smith.
The Purdy's lived in Washington County, Kentucky... then in McDonough County, IL, then in Jackson County, OR, then in Umatilla County, Oregon, finally to Beaverhead County, Montana.
Ever hear of any of these folks? There has to be a connection to SOME Pressley family someplace along the way. Would like to hear from you... especially if you have some information on my "Pressley" clan.

PRESSLEY DAVIS was my gr-gr-grandfather. He was born in South Carolina on 4 July 1810 and died in Pike County, Alabama 15 March 1863. He was kicked by a mule and died of injuries soon afterward. Since he had an unusual given name, I wondered if PRESSLEY could have also been a surname in earlier generations. His father, EDWARD DAVIS (b.abt 1770 in Virginia), married a MARGARET (surname unknown, b. abt 1770 in South Carolina). Anyone have a MARGARET *PRESSLEY* married to an EDWARD DAVIS in the 1785-86 time period in South Carolina?
