Thank you for the information it provides some substantial evidence to support family stories. The family story said that Charles Preston was working as a farm laborer at a farm near Martha Byrd's home in xenia. They ran off together and eventually settled in Ross County, Ohio. Family stories have Charles as having very light tan complexion, possibly of mixed heritage, also listed as white. I have found limited information on their children, especially Suan and Willie. My mother's father, Russell Williams, was the son of Mary Preston and Harvey Williams. If you have any additional info I hope you will share it. I wondered if any are buried in Chillicothe, Ross Co, Ohio and where.
