Doug was they a 1950 Census with more children,  and Hazel Pressley was from Georgia my wife said this is her Grandparent's,  and on the Pressley side they may connect to N.C like to see more Census if you see any. THANKS
The 1950 census is not available yet. Your best bet is to find obituary info that may list children/grand children.
Do you thank view others on page that Emma Pressley age 56 in 1940 could be the mother of Willis Pressley b.est 1915  Thank you for this I'm going to add what I can ,
Doug do you know if Melvin was Melvin Cope Presley or Melvin Coke Presley. Why I'm asking is I see he is related to Coke M McDonald but we didn't know if maybe you could find death certificate for him? Thanks Doug

William O Mcdonald 77 years of age 1930 , my wife's great great Grandfather do you see his parents anywhere I'm going to add this information for her, She has always wondered about that Coke name , I guess M.Coke Mcdonald mother may have been last name Coke I never heard that name before,  If you have anything else,  I would appreciate it,  She looks like she may have Native being dark skin but it may come from her dad's side out of Laurinburg, Scotland County, N.C , Thank's
