My ggg-grandfather Elias and wife Mary are found in the 1850 Beinville Parish, La., as Elias and Mary Presley(in the land records they are shown as Preslar. Elias and Mary were b abt 1800, and born in North Carolina,according to the census. The children are listed as Nancy b. abt. 1831-1833,Bryant R., b. abt 1834, Mary E. b abt 1835 and Mary C b abt 1837. The children were born in North Carolina, except Frances, the youngest and she in Mississippi In all the Preslar/Presley info on-line, I cannot make any connections to any of the families. I hope that someone can help me with my "brickwall" Thanks, Sherry

My line is in Sabine Parish, Louisiana, not far from Bienville Parish. There are several names in the family that are the same as in my family, but Ed Dunn thinks that they are not related. My Hosea Presley named his first son Elias Fletcher Presley. The names Elias and Hosea continue to be passed down through all generations until my grandfather, EF Presley,Jr., didn't name any of his sons Elias or Hosea as first names. If you would like to get together to see where the similarities start and end, I am more than game for clues to anything!
