Many sources say that John was born about 1732, with birthplace as yet unknown; is purported to be one of the two Pringle brothers (with Samuel) associated with the Pringle Tree near today's Buckhannon, WV. Married Rebecca Simpson, sister of trapper and hunter John Simpson. Pioneer of Louisville, Jefferson Co, KY. Probably died in Henry County, KY, given 1819 deed (see sources).

Proven as a DAR Patriot in January 2018, residency in Lincoln Co KY, serving with George Rogers Clark as well as providing supplies.


DAR estimates birthdate of "ante 1750" due to unproven birthdates of children older than Sarah, whose age is based off of her marriage record (KY Marr 1785-1979, Jefferson Co, Deed Bk Q p 81, Sarah Pringle and Isaac Watkins, with both John and Rebecca giving consent).

Death date p 13 Feb 1819, last shown in deed in Henry Co KY , Deed Bk 11, p 230, with wife Rebecca mentioned.

January 2018: proven as a DAR Patriot under name "John Prindle."
