Marilda Stephens is my great-great-grandmother. She IS a first cousin of Alexander Stephens, and daughter of Nehemiah Stephens. Marilda's son and my great-grandfather, Marion, shared many things about our ancestors. Did you know that Nehemiah fought in the Seminole Indian Wars or that he moved to Tennessee for a while to be near two of his sisters.
Do you have Information you would like to share this is my wife’s family line. Her Grandfather was a Pressley

If Donnie Blackstone could provide the Presley name of his wife's grandfather, I may be able to help. Jim
Melvin Pressley b. May 20, 1939 d. July 9, 1991 Greenville. SC his dad Willis Pressley or Presley b. June 5, 1913 Pendelton, SC March 17, 1974 Greenville, SC his dad  Walter Crayton (Pressley) Presley (abt. 1887 - 1937) and his dad Mericus Sylvanus Pressley (1860 - 1928), this is the Information I have, Thanks
So Andrew Hamilton Stephens b.1812 is for a fact her first cousin do you have Information on Nehemiah Stephens birth and death.
Your tree for Melvin agrees with my records. Walter's parents were Americus Sylvanus (Van) Pressley and Alice Virginia Holcombe. Van's parents were Adam and Marilda.

Concerning Nehemiah, his death date and cause are unknown, but he was most likely in or near Lumpkin County, Georgia in the late 30s since his daughter was attending a private school in Dahlonega. Also his nephew, Alex, was handling land transactions at that time in Lumpkin County.
Ok if you find anything else I can add just let me know. Thanks for helping
Hi Jim-- Do you have any information about Nehemiah Stephens's other children?  Thanks!
Still looking for Nehemiah Stephens that went to Tennessee who was his dad, I guess I could add that line to Alexader Hamilton Stephens, Thanks for any help
