> I've been tracking your Pressley/Pressly family out of Abbeville Co South Carolina and found out that they had moved over to Preble Co. Ohio. From there they moved over to Randolph Co Illinois to be among their many THOMPSON relatives who had already settled in Randolph Co in the early 1800's.
>
> The children that you have listed are children of Robert Pressly and Elizabeth Clark who married in Abbeville South Carolina 14 Dec 1809.
>
> Robert Pressly is the son of Samuel Pressly b abt 1756 probably in Scotland and his wife Elizabeth Thompson b 13 Aug 1758 Cork Co Ireland d abt 1798 Abbeville SC. Elizabeth Thompson is the daughter of Robert Thompson and Mary Dorris from Cork Co. Ireland.
>
> Samuel Pressly is the son of David Pressly b abt 1731 Glasgow, Scotland d 5 Jan 1785 Charleston, SC and his wife Esther Brown. Samuel Pressly had a brother David Pressly who married Ann Edmiston and they had a son Alexander Edmiston Pressly b 27 Jan 1793 who married another one of our Thompson girls, dtr of Moses Thompson and brother to your Elizabeth.

> I descend from Robert Thompson and Mary Dorris>Archibald Thompson Sr b 3 Sept 1760 d 1833 & Mollie McBride (and incidentally their son James Thompson is the one who married Sarah Pillars that married your Samuel Alexander Mann in 1863.)But from Arch and Mollie I descend through James brother Archibald Thompson Jr b 8 Aug 1795 & Elizabeth Anderson>Archibald Washington Thompson b 25 Apr 1824 d 3 Oct 1890 Dunnegan, MO & Ellen Elizabeth Skelly>Webster Skelly Thompson & Nancy Elizabeth Brim>Athal Eugene Thompson and Nellie Click are my grandparents.
>
> I think Robert Pressly and Elizabeth Clark had another daughter Jane N Pressley that married Robert C Mann 4 Feb 1848 because she's still at home with Elizabeth in the 1840 census. Jane was born in Illinois abt 1823 so I think your Robert either died in Illinois and possibly there in Randolph Co., just don't know. You might check Washington Co too though because the families lived in both counties a lot of the time or back and forth.
>
> Here's Jane and Robert Mann in 1850 and they have one of the Pressley boys living with them and just wonder if it's Benjamin's son.
