  • Name Edward Henry Pressley  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
    Born 3 Nov. 1845  Cartersville, Bartow County, Georgia Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Date is from Civil War service records and per "History of Texas Together with a Biographical History"; Death Certificate indicates Edgefield, South Carolina but this is thought to be incorrect. See notes below:
    • Edward Henry Pressley's Texas Death Certificate states that he was born in Edgefield County, South Carolina; however, his Civil War service records indicate that he was born in Bartow County, Georgia. Additionally, the book entitled, History of Texas Together With a Biographical History, states that he was born in Cartersville, Barstow County, Georgia. This same book also contradicts his year of birth stating that he was born in 1843 - not 1845 as per his Texas Death Certificate.
