SOUTH CAROLINA COLONIAL LAND GRANTS

(Ed. Note: Sylvia Castles, 841 Garden Dale Dr., Columbia, S.C. 29210 has compiled the following list of colonial land grants and plats now at the S.C. Archives. Photocopies of the grants and the plats have been provided by her and are being placed in our Association archive. Land was often awarded to immigrants in parcels of 50 acres to a man and 50 acres for each dependent, including slaves. Prior to 1776 the officials of the royal colony granted land to settlers in a four-step process: 1) The individual desiring land petitioned for the property he wanted; 2) A warrant was issued to the surveyor to survey the land and describe it with a small map; 3) The land was surveyed, the plat drawn and recorded; 4) A grant to the private owner was made and recorded.)

New members receive all back issues for the current membership year. Dues received after March 1st will be applied to the following year beginning July 1st.

Inquiries concerning material in the Association archives should be addressed to the Research Director, James E. Anderson, (address withheld). and should be accompanied by a large self-addressed, stamped envelope.





FROM THE EDITOR'S DESK


With the mailing of this issue, members will have received 78 pages this year filled with family data, queries, articles, etc. Where else could you get so much information for just ten dollars? By changing printers your Association has been able to cut costs, to add pages to each issue, to provide for some additional advertising of the organization (already we've had an increase in membership), and to set aside additional funds for research next year.

That's why I can now proudly ask you to renew your membership for 1989-1990 i Yes, I know that twelve months have gone by so rapidly since I last made that request, and all the other bills have gone up equally fast, but here's one fee that hasn't been raised. The majority of you agreed to a possible increase in annual dues, but we're going to hold the line for another year. With the continued support of each of you, we'll get even better, so please don't forget to return your renewal form with a check for dues for next year.

At the same time, please mark and return the enclosed ballot for the election of officers for 1989-1991. The deadline for returning the ballots is June 26. You'll see a new name on the ballot this time, a portent of better things to come. I anticipate that the next two years will be an important period of growth and transition for our Association. The officers will need your support,- and your participation in the election and your renewal of membership are two ways to expre that support.

GOOD HELP IS HARD TO KEEP

This newspaper clipping is from the Pennsylvania Gazette, Philadelphia, Nov. 17, 1738, printed by Benjamin Franklin. It was contributed by Elizabeth B. Bunting, address withheld. The same, or a similar, notice concerning these runaway servants appeared in the Virginia Gazette in Williamsburg, Va., on the same date. Col. Peter Presly, grandson of the immigrant, William Presly, was born prior to 1657 and was a justice, a colonel in the militia, sheriff, and a burgess from 1710 to 1749. He was murdered by one of his black servants in 1750, who was tried and sentenced to be hung. Col. Presly, last male Presly of his line, left many descendants, but his beautiful mansion overlooking the Potomac River, Northumberland House, is long gone.

Old War Series, Pensions



(Ed. Note: The "Old War" series of pension applications relates to claims based on service rendered between the end of the Revolutionary War (April 11, 1783) and April 14, 1862, but not including service in the War of 1812. They concern service in the Mexican War, Indian Wars, Regular Establishment, and in some cases the Civil War.)

Indian Wars, Service Records



(Ed. Note: These records, dated 1817-58, concern service in the Florida War, the Black Hawk War, the Creek War, the Cherokee War, and the Sac & Fox War. Mrs. Hustead reports, "These cards are almost all afflicted with fading in some area, particularly the names. This information was gathered because the same man has more than one card with different spellings, but there may be single cards with other variations that simply cannot be read.")

Southern Claims Commission


(Ed. Note: The Southern Claims Commission was established by the U.S. Congress in March 1871 for the purpose of considering the war claims of Southern loyalists who had suffered losses at the hands of the Union army or who had aided the Union army during the late war. It was not intended to compensate Southerners for losses occasioned by "unofficial" acts by Union troops, such as the pillaging by Sherman's bummers, and such claims were denied.

The records of this Commission in the National Archives are a little known source of genealogical data, and shouldn't be overlooked by researchers of South! ern families, even those who had obvious sympathies with the Confederacy, since the latter sometimes filed claims which were denied. The index to these records has been published in Civil War Claims in the South. An Index of Civil Claims Filed Before the Southern Claims Commission, 1871-1880, by Gary B. Mills, Laguna Hills, Calf., 1980.

The only Presley/Preslar listed in this index is:
Jacob M. Presley Pickens Co., Ga.

I am trying to gather information about my great grandfather, William M. Presler/Pressler. When he came from Germany, he changed his name from Bressler. He was born 9 Sept. 1817 in Germany, or Centre Co., Penn.; died 14 May 1910 in Glen Elder, Kan.; married firstly, 16 Feb. 1843, to Elmina (Boden) Crabill; married secondly, 8 May 1884, to Mary Lydia Gates (my gr. grandmother). His middle name could have been McCall, and he had three brothers, Jacob, John, and George. Any information would be appreciated.

(Ed. Note: I believe your gr. grandfather can be found in the 1850 census of Seneca Co., Ohio:

My wife and I were just recently called to be local missionaries for our church. This means we try to fellowship some of our inactive members back into activity and help the full time missionaaries teach nonmembers about our church.

Then, right after this happened (about March 1st), I had a minor heart attack. There was minimal damage, [but] this will slow me down some I am sure.

One of our new members wrote me with a query and I have misplaced the letter. If she will repeat the query, I will be glad to check our records for her.

Some of you have received the above postcard regarding new publications. We have no information as yet about the people who are producing this periodical and "Registry", but we'll keep you informed if and when we learn anything more. Meanwhile, we have just seen a copy of the "Registry" and the first issue of the "News".

The "Registry" is a 26-page, soft-cover, spiral-bound listing of 4469 names and addresses. A quick cross-check with our membership list indicates that this directory lists none of the PRESSLY/PRESSLEY/PRESLAR/PRESSLER/BRESSLER variants that we know are sometimes related, so if your name isn't spelled PRESLEY, you aren't listed.

There is nothing in either of these publications to indicate that the publishers recognize that PRESSLY/PRESSLEY is the traditional Irish spelling of the surname, or that a great many PRESLEYs in this country have German PRESSLER/PRESLAR roots, or that the English origin of the name is PRIESTLEY.

"The Presley Family News" is a 12-page attractively-printed publication, the named Editor and Genealogist of which are not listed in the current Denver telephone directory. The lead article, Part 1 of a "History of the Presley Family ...", consists of exactly 16 "sentences" (not all are complete sentences) with the informative statement that the Presleys emerged from the "genetic goop" of the "English Isles". No specific genealogical or biographical information on individual Presleys or Presley families is in this issue, but there is a plea for readers to submit photos, biographies, genealogies, etc.

There is also an announcement of plans to publish "within 6 months" a Who's Who in the Presley Family to sell for $35 plus $4 shipping, the primary sources for which will be the IGI, the census data, and the "Registry", with some military records, immigration records, burial records, sports records, etc.

FAMILY GROUP DATA

Everett, WA 98203

Dear Editor:
I don't know what kind of research results you would like us to send to you, but I am excited about the enclosed family group sheet. I think what excites me the most is that it is a family for a female PRESSLY. I have a tennible time finding my family lines, and I have put this sheet together working on my female WEED Line. My grandmother, Elizabeth Weed, married John Pressly, and her brother, Andrew Weed, married Nancy. Pressly.

Thanks,
Jean Nielsen

(Ed. Note: Thank YOU, Jean. This is exactly the kind-of research we are looking for. It is through the sharing of material such as this from researchers across the country that family histories begin to come together.

For those of you who haven't found very much on your family line in these pages, please share with us a query or a bit of information. It may stimulate a response from someone else, and if you've tried that already without results, try again. A different approach, or different wording, may work this time. If you haven't shared with us, someone may be waiting to hear about what you know.)
