John Pringle died January 6, 1850, in Mayesville, Sumter County, South Carolina. He was buried in the "Old Pringle Cemetery," on Brewington Rd., in woods on Fincher Property next to Mayewood High School. The cemetery is now called the Brunson-Pringle Cemetery. We know from his headstone that he was aged 63 at the time of his death, and from that, we can calculate the year of his birth as 1787. There is a photograph of his headstone on his Find A Grave memorial, which may be seen here: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pv&GRid=65360607&PIpi=38491060

However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with John:
