(Ed. Note: The main purpose of a genealogical or family newsletter is to provide a means for readers to exchange or share information of mutual interest. An essential feature of such a publication must be the Query section, whereby researchers who may be working on the same, or close, family lines may make contact with each other.

The way a query is phrased or worded may make all the difference in whether or not one receives a reply. Unless a surname is relatively unusual, I don't answer queries, as one frequently sees, that just indicate an interest in the "Smith" family, for example. Otherwise well-written queries on a Presley family are sometimes submitted without a single place or date included, leaving the reader wondering in what state and in what century the family resided. Unless a reader is intimately acquainted with the indicated family, he or she may not recognize that information onthe family may very well be somewhere in his files.

A well-written query should be as specific as possible — ask a specific question. It should include as much identifying information, dates, places, given names, etc. as you have. Be concise, but remember that in our Newsletter we try to include longer queries when possible, because we feel that specific data on children, etc. in a query is valuable information we want to share with our readers.

With luck, a well-written query may elicit a significant reply, but if not, don't be discouraged. Someone may see your query in an old issue several years from now and take pen in hand. It has happened to me. Also, don't forget that you can submit another query in a future issue, perhaps with new information, or perhaps worded differently, or perhaps on a closely related line, that will produce a response. Perhaps it will be in the first issue seen by a new reader or member. )

THE PRESLEY/PRESLAR/PRESSLY NEWSLETTER is a quarterly publication of the Presley/Preslar/Pressly Family Research Association and is distributed to members and to selected genealogical libraries, President is Lillian L. Stumpp, address withheld. Vice-president is Betty Bostick, address withheld. Treasurer is E.L. Singleton, address withheld.

Queries and items for publication should be sent to the Editor, Edwin C. Dunn, address withheld. They will be included in the Newsletter at no cost as space permits. Back issues of the Newsletter may be ordered from the Editor at $1.50 each (only three issues were in volume one).

Applications, checks, and renewals for membership should be sent to the Secretary, Carol Hicks, address withheld. Applications should be accompanied by family group sheets for the Presley (etc.) family line. Dues are $12 per year; associate membership (spouses) dues $5 per year, payable on July 1st. New members receive all back issues for the current membership year. Dues received after Fterch 1st will be applied to the following year beginning on July 1st.

Inquiries concerning material in the Association archive should be addressed to the Research Director, James E. Anderson, address withheld. They should be accompanied by two first-class postage stamps.


It's that time of'year again (it comes so often 1) when renewal of dues is necessary. It has turned out to have been a good year for our Association. With some late renewals last year and a number of new members this Spring we have maintained the size of our organization. We only lost a very few members as a result of the increase in dues, and the increase covered the raise in postal rates which came this year.

Your editor and your president, Lillian Stumpp, were fortunate enough to have met personally on two occasions this year in Salt Lake City and Albuquerque to discuss genealogy and plans for the future of our Association. It was very encouraging.

Vikki Lyn Cleveland of Salem, IL, a new member, has agreed to be the Association's representative for the Presley family of Northumberland Co, VA. She will be learning along with the rest of us about this family and its descendants, and all queries, letters, and information on the Virginia Presleys will be sent .to her for coordination, organization, and replies.

Robert T. Presley

I am seeking information on my great grandfather, William Davis Pressly, and his family. My father feels sure that W.D.'s father was named Harvey S. Presley. I have located a Harvey S. Presley in the Confederate Army records. This Harvey was born in Franklin Co., Ga. Mar. 11, 1830, but I have not

Page 72

Robert T. Presley

been able to find him in any census records to reference him to W.D. Pressly. My records state that W.D. Pressly was born in Jackson Co., Ga., but I have been unable to verify this by census, church, or military records. His family group is as follows:
William Davis Pressly, b. 8/6/1861 Jackson Co., Ga., d. 4/11/1945 Jackson Co., Ga., m. 9/5/1882 Hall Co., Ga. to Rachel A. Barrett, b. 12/24/1867 Abbeville Co., S.C., d. 7/10/1953 Jackson Co., Ga. (m. 2/23/1946 Hampton Bryant). Children:
1) Wiley Pressly, b. Jan. 1888.
2) Charlie Pressly, b. June 1890, d. 1910? (killed by lightning).
3) Norma Pressly, d. as infant.
4) Edward Pressly, b. 9/3/1894 Jackson Co., Ga., d. 11/11/1948 Jackson Co., Ga.
5) Howard "Spencer" Pressly, b. 1/1/1895 Jackson Co., Ga. Was married seven times.
6) Winborn "Wilburn" Presley 3r., b. 12/20/1898 uackson Co., Ga., d. 7/3/1974 Gainesville, Ga., m. 3/10/1918 New Holland, Hall Co., Ga., to Ruth McDonald (my grandparents).
7) William David Pressly, b. 8/4/1903 Jackson Co., Ga.
8) Leon Grady Pressly, b. 9/25/1908 Jackson Co., Ga., d. 8/17/1971 Jackson Co., Ga.

(Ed. Note: Confederate military service records for Harvey Presley, pvt., Company D., 27th Ga. Inf., are in the National Archives. Harvey S. Pressly, Company D, 27th Ga. Regt., of Hall Co., Ga., also received a pension for his military service from the State of Georgia. Request copy of the latter records from Confederate Pension & Record Dept., State Capitol, Atlanta, Ga. )

We continue to employ the services of Lilla Licht, our researcher in Washington, D.C., at the National Archives. She sends us a report twice a year. As editor of a family newsletter herself, she is acutely aware of our needs, and is even looking forward to possible future projects in the Archives and other D.C. depositories when the present project is completed.

In similar fashion, we have commissioned a professional genealogical researcher in Salt Lake City to search out Presley (and all its variants, of course) records from a wide variety of sources geographically. She will be concentrating on indexes, lists, etc. which will be most likely to provide quick and abundant clues to members for their continued research. We'll be getting biannual reports from her, and hopefully you'll soon be seeing the results of these efforts in the Newsletter.

So, you can see that there is plenty to which to look forward, and good reason to renew your membership. We need everyone's support in order to carry forward with our plans.

Now, DON'T FORGET TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP 1 Mail the enclosed renewal form, and your check, right away before you get started on your vacation and your other summer activities.

As for your editor, I'm looking forward to combining the two things—-some mountain camping, another trip to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, and a late summer trip to the Carolinas to visit with relatives.

"According to the most carefully reasoned estimates, between sixty-nine billion and a hundred and ten billion people have lived since the appearance of human beings. ...[T]he final tally is significantly affected by when one decides to begin the curve. Most historical demographers ... begin their curves a million years ago. Creationists, who start the human race ... six thousand years ago ... come up with a considerably lower figure for the total number of people ever- -fifty-one billion."

"...[!]£ you kept multiplying by two the progenitors of a person born today- -doubling his parents, their parents, etc.--the person would have (based on an average generation length of twenty-five years) something like two hundred and eighty-one trillion forebears alive at the time of Charlemagne. Obviously, there were nowhere near that many people around in 800 A.D., or at any other time."

"Contrary to widely held belief... inbreeding has had nothing , to do with the 'royal hemophilia' that has so far afflicted nine male descendants of Queen Victoria, including the Czarevitch Alexis Romanoff and an uncle of the present King of Spain, the Prince of Asturias, who hemorrhaged to death after a car accident in 1938. The disorder sprang from a genetic mutation that is believed to have occurred in the X chromosome of Queen Victoria's father, Edward, the Duke of Kent; it was inherited by one of her four sons and by two of .her four daughters. The execution of Czar Nicholas and his family and the untimely death of two afflicted Prussian princes have terminated Victoria's Hesse line, but the mutant gene may still be carried by some of her English and Spanish female descendants."

Regarding your Vol. VI, No. 2 (Dec. 1990), page 35, "Carole Presley letter"--Virginia Applachian Notes [Va], vol. 13, no. 1 (Feb. 1989, I am that Carole Presley and have been researching my own family for about 15 years. They were from S.W. Virginia, and while doing this research, I have noted many Presley items, some of which I have put into a notebook. We have not done much research on my husband's family, the Presleys, but we intend to start, and we will try to get some news to you about what little we do know about the family. They were from Madison County, Tenn.

The article on Dixie descendants in Brazil was very interesting to me as I am related to some of the group in the migration. My mother is related to the Wise family and my Dad to the McFadden, my husband to the Fergusons. Betty [Antunes de Oliveira] is one of our members, and we are proud of her work there in compiling the book on the cemetery, pictures and all.

Jean Nichols

(Ed. Note: Jean is editor of the Chester District Genealogical Society Bulletin, and the book to which she refers is entitled North American Immigration to Brazil. Tombstone Records of the "Campo" Cemetery, published in 1978. Jean reported in The Bulletin about the recent visit of Mrs. Betty Antunes de Oliveira to Chester Co., S.C., to trace her ancestors, the Thomases and Fergusons.) Concerning the calling of people by their first names, I'm for it. Having gone to Swarthmore, a Quaker school, where only the familiar of address was used, and appreciating therefore being part of the "brotherhood", I feel very good when someone calls me Betty, and I feel very much put aside with Mrs. Bunting. I also remember the very early taufscheine (birth certificates) of the pastors to the colonies. They did a bit of moonlighting by drawing up taufscheine for those that could afford them. The use of first names was all important, because that name given in baptism was often the individual's only identity before

Page 80

God. These taufscheine were so revered that often they went into the coffin with the deceased - kind of a passport indentification before God. These first names are inscribed 4 j in fraktur and about four times as big as the place and date ^, J-r so inscribed. My first name is my identity. I don't mean to i "beat your ear" - just to tell you to please keep calling me ; Betty. It makes me feel g-o-o-o-o-o-dl

My father, Coleman C. Thompson, passed away 10 Dec. 1990. He was born 1 July 1913 at White Flat, OK. He married Naomi A. Presley on 25 Oct. 1935. She is the daughter of Clifton R. & Myrtle Foley Presley. He was buried across the road from where he was born.

My grandmother, Myrtle Foley Presley, passed away 26 Jan. 1991. She was born 30 Jan. 1895 at Lampassass, TX. She married Clifton R. Presley on 6 Aug. 1911. He was the great grandson of Roswell W. Presley of Tate Co., MS, and Chester Co., SC.

Q. Is it true Elvis Presley"s mother was Italian and his father was Irish? If not, what nationality was Elvis?--Susan Grace, Quakertown, Pa.

A. Elvis Presley's mother, the former Gladys Smith, told an interviewer she was of English extraction, and her husband, Vernon Presley, said, "The same is true of me." But the most likely truth is that they had no idea from where they came--except that it. was close to Tupelo, Miss. In 1956, Eivis1 father confessed, "I never heard tell of any of my kinfolk coming over from anywhere. I guess it must have been a long way back." Incidentally, the official word out of Graceland, the Presley estate in Memphis, is that Elvis was of Irish descent. The singer himself used to say, "I'm American," and let it go at that.

-Parade Magazine, Apr. 21, 1991

It has taken a while, but Elvis Presley finally has blasted his way through the Bamboo Curtain and into China's record shops. On sale in Beijing after 34 years: "Jailhouse Rock," "All Shook Up" and "Heartbreak Hotel."
