From "Cavaliers and Pioneers," by Nellie Marion Nugent, keeper of land deeds and patents for the state of Virginia until 1935, wrote several books, giving short descriptions of all land deeds recorded between 1623 and 1800. The following is an extract:

Book #3 - Patent Book #3, page 687, November 1705, King & Queen Co., Virginia.

Robert Bell - bought 148 acres, South Side Dragon Swamp, 100 acres being that of John Robinson, 48 acres to be improved by James Presnee. This is more than obviously James Presnal. Dragon Swamp in King and Queen County, Virginia extends into Middlesex County. Middlesex County is where the first "Presnell" records are found. John Robinson and Benjamin Harrison lived in King and Queen County. Coleman's and Daniel's lived in Middlesex County, all close to Dragon Swamp. They all attended Christ Church, Middlesex County. The Presnell family not only associated with, but married into these families.

Franz Krings is the progenitor of most all Krings in Nebraska.

Franz Krings was born born on 4 December 1818 in Erkelenz Germany.

His birth certificate reads:

"In the year one thousand eight hundred eighteen, on the fourth of the month December at twelve o'clock noon appeared before me, Peter Joseph Erdmann, Mayor of Erkelenz, as an official of the state of population, Peter Joseph Krings, thirty eight years old, profession, Merchant, living in Erkelenz Administrative District Aachen, who showed me a child of male sex and who told me that this child was born on the third of the month December in the year ont thousand eight hundred eighteen at seven o'clock in the evening to Peter Joseph Krings and to Agnes Schumacher, his wife, profession, housewife, living in Erkelenz, Bellinghover Street in the house with the number 128, and who further declared to give this child the name Franz."

"This showing and declaration took place in the presence of Anton Doerenkamp, forty-eight years old, profession, Innkeeper, living in Erkelenz, and of Johann Mathias Classen, twenty-four years old, profession, Community Secretary, living in Erkelenz and after reading this to everybody, the above mentioned as well as the two witnesses, signed this present certificate with me."

On 25 May 1842, Franz married with Anna Carolina Michels, daughter of Wilhelm Michels and Anna Christina Goertz, in the city of Erkelenz.

It appears that they had 4 children Wilhelm Joseph, Jospeha Laura, Josephine, and Heinrich Emil, all born between the years 1845 and 1859 in the city of Erkelenz.

Anna Carolina Michel Krings died on 04 May 1863 at the young age of 45, leaving Franz with Wilhelm and Josephina Laura who were now teenagers, and Josepine age 11, and Heinrich Emmil, age 4.

Fourteen years later after the death of Anna, in 1877, at the age of 58, he emmigrated Germany to seek a new life in the USA, arriving New York City on 2 June 1877 on the ship Wesser. Travelling together with him was his children Josephe and Emmil. The ship record incorrectly lists the child Emmil as a female.

In the fall of In the fall of 1877, a meeting was held at the home of Christian Greisen, and St. Anthony's parish was finally organized. The first parish membership record lists twenty-four Germans, fourteen Poles, and three English speaking members. The first church services in the St. Anthony's community were held in the Christian Greisen home. After the Sunday Mass, the new parishioners were guests of Peter Ripp, for dinner. The first Church Trustees elected were: Peter Ripp and Frank Krings. The St. Anthony's history book mentions that Franz arrived in 1876, but I believe that to be in error and should be 1877.

He became a naturlized citizen on 16 February 1878.

Franz died in Humphrey Nebraska on 22 December 1893.

In 1847, Luelling, his wife, and eight children came west on the Oregon Trail, bringing a wagon loaded with an assortment of 50 or 60 varieties of apples, pears, peaches, plums, cherries, quince, black walnuts, hickory nuts, gooseberries, currants, and grapes. All told, the wagon had about 700 young plants. By fall, he and his family had arrived safe and sound in Oregon. Settling in Milwaukie, Luelling started a nursery with his son-in-law, William Meek. He planted his "traveling orchard," and began grafting trees. By 1853, he had 100,000 trees for sale, selling them for $1 to $1.50 each. Orchardists snapped up these trees, using them to plant orchards and start nurseries. Before Luelling, growers relied on seedling fruit, which was often small, with insipid flavor, and other problems. By bringing the finest varieties of fruit to Oregon, Luelling moved gardening a giant step forward.

In 1893, when William was 44 and Phoebe was 43, they became tempted by the opening of the Oklahoma Terriitory.

Jeremiah had sold the farm to them several years earlier and retired to town, so William sold the farm, fitted up two covered wagons with a 2-wheeled cart attached to two of the wagons to carry bulky foods - one item of which was a big box of gingersnaps, the luxury of the trip. By the late summer of 1894 when the wagons were Wm. and Phoebe, Stella, and one-year old Guy, Lilley, pregnant with her first baby, and her husband, Arch Tingley. The two remaining boys, Jerry and Will aged 15 and 13, rode ponies.

Stella was 9 years old when the trip started and she rebelled at leaving her pet puppy. He was allowed to accompany them, but to her soorow, died along the way.

When they reached the settlement of Reno, Oklahoma, which is no longer on the map, Arch built a one-room log cabin. This was the shelter for the 8 people in the family (later 9 when Lilley gave birth to a boy they named George.

When they left Kansas for Oklahoma:
1. William Salathial Presnell (45)
2. Phoebe Jane Robinson (44)
3. Stella (9 years old)
4. Guy (1 yr old)
5. Lilley Mae (pregnant) (age 18)
6. Arch Tingley (husband of Lilley)
7. Jeremiah (age 15)
8. William (age 13)

It was a bare existencelife with the children sleeping on the floor and Phoebe making a bed for herself on 2 chairs.

Some of Stella's early memories were of making dolls of corn cobs and dressing them in husks. Her daily chores was watching over the toddler Guy and every chance she got, she'd sneak away to a little play house she'd found near the cabin where the earth cut away to form a semi-cave.

By Spring, they'd had enough. Indians stole the two ponies besides harrassing them for food and Stella's resentment knew no bounds when they took off with the prized gingersnaps. They packed up the wagons and returned to Portis and school for the children.

It was a big relief to ge back to Portis.

Lena came to the United States as a young adult and married Henry G Husmann. They were the parents of three children, Elmer, Herbert and Henrietta (Milton Scheffler). Henry died in the flu epidemic of 1918 several months before Henrietta was born.

Lena then married Herman H Jannssen. They were parents of two daughters, Edna (Kenneth Paul) and Ruth (Bob Sovboda).

Apparently Lena had a child in Germany whom no one here knew anything about. Some of the family members visited Germany in the early 1980's, to visit relatives. Can you imagine their surprise when the Husmann and Janssen siblings found out they had an older half sister?

Some genealogies claim that Jacob arrived Virginia in 1701 having sailed on the ship Le Nassau. I do NOT believe this is true. The ship list shows the Maupin family on that ship, however no Presnell or variant spelling. Furthermore, the Presnell-Maupin connection of this family is also proven to be false.

The early offensive in the Pacific

John Finzer Presnell, Jr. was born in Portland, Maine in 1914 when, across a great ocean, the First World War was being waged on the fields of France and on the beaches of Italy. Nine days after Presnell turned four years old, Germany surrendered. As the boy matured and attended Portland High School, the defeated Germany birthed the Weimar Republic, which attempted to grow with the rest of the European continent, only to be reminded at every turn of its troubled past.

The Treaty of Versailles had bred such hatred and animosity-as it laid the blame for the entire war on the German people-that elements of the community never forgot nor forgave the outside world. Some dreamt of sciences and new ways to live peacefully while still others dreamt of a new empire-a new dawn-for Aryan peoples. It was this latter element that soon gained strength and power in the gathering storm that was fed by weakness and U.S. inaction.

As a withering and weak League of Nations failed-thanks to the refusal of the U.S. to abide by its laws-a new Germany was born out of the fires of anger and human hatred. It was a new Reich that would soon spread its evil across a continent and change the world forever.

In Maine, John Presnell grew strong and, after graduating from high school in 1932, attended Bowdoin College in Brunswick. The youth worked hard in his undergraduate career, enjoying the delights of Kenneth Charles Morton Sills' small New England college. Presnell did well in his academic career-graduating Phi Beta Kappa in the Class of 1936. Then, following in the proud tradition of many great characters of history, John F. Presnell, Jr. went on to attend the Military Academy at West Point.

From the Hudson, he wrote back to the College, simplifying his experience for the Bowdoin Alumnus: "When…a West Point Cadet has received his diploma and his degree of Bachelor of Science, he has not only the same sort of sheepskin as the Bowdoin graduate, but also a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the Army, and a motto that will be part of him for the rest of his life: 'Duty, Honor, Country.'"

It was in the pursuit of "duty, honor, country" that Presnell accepted his first assignment to the Philippines after graduating from the Point with the highest rating in mathematics-earning for himself the Robert E. Lee Memorial Sword. Aside from his Second Lieutenant's commission in the prestigious Corps of Engineers, Presnell also received the Sons of the American Revolution Cup for military efficiency and the General John J. Pershing Sword for his position as a cadet captain and a regimental commander. Presnell set sail for the Philippines in August, 1940. He continued his good record and, a year later, had almost earned the rank of First Lieutenant.

In recognition of his achievements and to note his alma mater's pride at an excellent record, President Sills wrote to the young officer on December 1, 1941:

I thought since it takes about a month for a letter from Brunswick to reach the Philippines I would just send you a line to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Our thoughts at the college often go out to those of you who are in distant parts of the world. We are always glad to hear what you are doing, always hope that you will feel we are deeply interested in the men in the service. Allow me to congratulate you on your promotion so soon to a first lieutenancy; that seems to imply you are doing fine work.

Presnell probably never read this letter. Six days after it was written Imperial Japanese warplanes bombed the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor and seven days later, on December 8, 1941, they began their invasion of the Philippines.

The Japanese struck swiftly. As Franklin Roosevelt was telling the nation that the U.S. was finally entering the war and Bowdoin officials learned that two of their own had been killed at Pearl Harbor, Japanese planes knocked out a large number of the American aircraft stationed in the Philippines under the overall command of General Douglas MacArthur. By December 22, MacArthur's airforce was reduced to only a few fighters and long range B-17 bombers-not nearly enough to halt the swarms of Japanese planes, which patrolled the skies in support of General Homma Masaharu's Fourteenth Army, comprised of approximately 57,000 troops.

MacArthur commanded a total of about 31,000 regular American and Filipino troops along with 110,000 "low-grade" Philippine troops. The Japanese moved up from their Luzon landings on December 22, pushing MacArthur's troops before them. Two days later, General MacArthur shifted his headquarters to the mouth of Manila Bay-Correigidor Island two miles off the coast of the Bataan Peninsula. A day after Christmas, Manila fell and a few days after the turn of the year, MacArthur and his command were established on Bataan, which was about twenty-five miles long and twenty in width.

Here a state of siege began. American supplies ran low in very short time, having to feed over 100,000 soldiers and civilians. Tropical diseases such as malaria took their toll, both on the fighting men and the officers who commanded them. Both U.S. and Japanese forces suffered in agony-the Japanese having about 10,000 troops down with malarial fever. The situation, however, favored the Japanese, who were able to bring in fresh reinforcements-Washington had decided early on that an attempt to rescue the American forces here would not be undertaken.

When attacks against the American lines were resumed in spring of 1942, both sides knew that the fight was basically over. To avoid unnecessary bloodshed, U.S. General King-MacArthur having already left for Australia-surrendered the Bataan survivors on April 9, 1942. Less than a month later, Correigidor-the great fortress-also fell.

In the fighting that followed the Japanese invasion of the Philippines, Lt. Presnell fought gallantly and earned the Bronze Star, as well as a promotion to Captain. He was interned in prison camps although the army did not confirm this POW status to his parents until December, 1942. Also captured on Bataan was another Bowdoin man: Major Robert T. Phillips-Class of 1924-a member of the U.S. Army's Medical Corps. Both were captured when the Bataan troops surrendered and managed to survive the horrific Bataan Death March. Phillips, however, did not survive long in the inhumane camps, which the Japanese set up. He died there on June 11, 1943. Presnell was stronger and younger, but he too did not live to see his country victorious. On January 19, 1945, weakened by years of imprisonment and by wounds sustained in several POW ship sinkings, he died.

Captain Presnell died without knowing that within less than a year, Allied troops would defeat the Axis after the bloodiest war in human history. That victory was gained by both skill and intrepidity. In the Pacific, the bloody island hopping campaign, which would eventually end with the dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan, began in the summer of 1942 when elite troops of the First Marine Division-known as "the Old Breed"-entered the war and began the reversal of the Japanese tide of conquest.

Following the Fall of the Philippines and the victory at Midway, U.S. commanders began a new campaign, hoping to halt the Japanese as they attempted to spread and solidify their defensive parameter in the middle and southern Pacific Ocean. The target for this, the first offensive by the U.S. Marines, was a little known island named Guadalcanal.
Presnell, John Finzer Jr. (I1894)
The Center Monthly Meeting of Guilford County, North Carolina was established in 1757. The Daniel Presnell family was associated with this Center Monthly Meeting prior to 1792. The minutes of this meeting were destroyed by fire in 1825.

Daniel Presnell appears on Jacob Shepard's List in Randolph County in 1779 (age 31), the year the county was formed. His worth is listed as 170 pounds.

The Back Creek, North Carolina Quaker Meeting (Randoloph County) was established in 1792 and the Pressnall family was associated with this group from its start.

The Back Creek Quaker records show:

June 25, 1797, Stephen, son of Daniel of Randolph County, married Hannah Rease.

March 7, 1798, Lydia, daughter of Daniel of Randolph County, married Nathan Hutson.

June 6, 1804, Daniel, son of Daniel and Martha of Randolph County, married Pleasant Modlin.

Daniel Presnell appears on Capt. Burn's District in the 1815 Tax List of Randolph County, and is listed as having 650 acres on Back Creek.

The Milford Quaker Meeting Minutes of Wayne County, Irdiana record the following:

March 26, 1825, A committee was appointed to inspect the situation of Daniel Pressnall Sr. and his wife and devise such methods for their relief as may appear necessary.

July 23, 1825, The committee reported that the matter of relief for Daniel Pressnall Sr. and his wife be discontinued and no longer be a meeting concern.

March 25, 1826, Daniel Preasnall Sr. of Back Creek and his wife report that they need immediate assistance of the Friends.

April 22, 1826, Twenty dollars was raised for the relief of Daniel Sr. and his wife.

There is considerable difference in opinion as to the children of James Presnell and Ann Daniel.

Experienced genealogists have varying opinions on the early Presnell families in the new world because records are very scarce.

It is believed that James Presnell grew up on the family farm in the rural area of Dragon Swamp (present day Urbana Virginia) on the shores of the Rhappahannock River

On 14 May 1732 James Presnell was married to Ann Daniel, daughter of Captain William Daniel and Mary Moseley. Her father William was a Captain of Huguenot forces. It was not long after being married, that James, Ann and their children moved from King and Queen County (Dragon Swamp) to Amelia County Virginia (most likely to the area which is present day Prince Edward County, southeast of Green Bay, Virginia).

In March of 1743 James purchased 400 acres of land on Snail Creek and Nottoway River, Amelia County, Virginia. On 10 September 1750 James sold this 400 acres of land to Andrew Harrison of King and Queen County Virginia. Andrew's brother Benjamin Harrison, who lived in Charles County, was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, who was also the father of the ninth U.S. President, William Henry Harrison.

On 27 February 1752 James again purchased 400 acres of land in Nottoway Parish, Amelia County Virginia, located on both sides of Deep Creek and Head of a Branch on the Lazaritti River. On 27 November 1755 he sold 150 acres of that land to William Parnell. Records show that Ann Daniel died by 1755 because in the land records it shows that "Relinquist Rights on Land for Anne Daniels."
On 15 October 1766 James sold the remaining 250 acres of land to a Thomas Paine- some claim it was the American Patriot, and politician ( I no longer believe this claim, as Thomas Paine, the author of Common Sense did not arrive the colonies until 1774. Was there another Thomas Paine?). On this transaction it shows that "Relinquist Rights on Land for Ruth." This record would lead us to believe that James married a second time to "Ruth." In the 1756 Tithe (Tax) list is shows; James, James, and a slave Jane.
On 2 September 1768, James again purchased 210 acres of land on the south side of the Dan River in Rowan County, North Carolina which is now Rockingham County, North Carolina. He sold this 210 acres of land to William Asten on 18 ovember 1777. It is assumed that at this late age of 69 years that James Presnell moved in with his son at this time on Little River, Randolph County, orth Carolina. A few genealogies show that James Presnell died in 1792.
Presnell, James (I18774)
Virginia had passed a law which required all males between the ages of 15 and 50 to serve 2 years in the Virginia Militia. The tour of duty was generally 2 years. The Quakers opposed serving in the Militia and they would not pay taxes to support the War.

We find Jacob every year between 1747 and 1754 tax rolls. Jacob and other Quakers refused to pay their taxes and to serve in the militia.

It was recorded on 26 August 1754 that, "Leave is Granted to Peter Holland, James Turner, Jacob Presnell, William Stone, William Stone Jr., James Orrick, and J.Fite." Further, "To clear road from Goose Creek up Falling Mountain. The said Holland is appointed overseer, William Stone Sr. the assistant. The said mountain road to be known as Mobberley Road and the persons convent with this tithe (tax) to attend sd. Stone and Pate are appointed as surveyors from Ridge to Goose Creek."

It was recorded on 25 August 1755:
Phelps -vs- Jacob Presnell
Iden -vs- Jacob Presnell

Recorded on 12 September 1755:
Callaway -vs- Jacob Presnell
Phelps -vs- Jacob Presnell Phellps was the Tithe (tax) Lister, Callaway was a member of the court.

The word "Leave" was used because they would not pay taxes or serve in the militia, when granted leave, they would not be sentenced, rather, given leave, to construct roads.

Recorded on 19 November 1757, in the South Creek Quaker Monthly Meeting was that Jacob Presnell is appointed Chairman of the Goose Creek Quakers, a newly formed group that desired to migrate to the wilds of North Carolina.

On the "Tax Rolls" are the following families that moved to North Carolina before 1765, settled close to Back Creek in what is now Randolph County, North Carolina: (Presnell's married into many of these families)

William - James, John, Robert, Giles
Harvey - Michael Sr., Michael Jr., William, John

23 "A QUAKER ELOPEMENT" Contributed by Mrs. Earl Parmenter ;l 1106 Hoffman Avenue ; Des Moines, Iowa 50316 Duck Creek Monthly Meeting, Henry County, Indiana, minutes read: "1831,02 mo,24 Mary Hutson (fore Maudlin Duck Creel; Preparative Meeting complained of for marrying contrary to discipline and deviation from plainness. Condemned her misconduct.. This entry in Quaker records is explained in a family story handed down through several generations. Joseph and Violet (Bell) Maudlin/Modlin did not approve of their daughter's planned marriage to James Hutson. The cause of their disapproval is not known as James was the son of Quakers Nathan and Lydia (Presnall) Hutson. "Polly" Maudlin defiantly announced her plans on the day of the planned elopement, 1831?Feb?03. Her family took action ? boosted her up the ladder to the loft of their home, shut the trap door and held the would?be bride prisoner. Polly pathetically complained of the cold prison in which she was being held so they passed a pan of coals from the fireplace up to her so she could warm herself. Her family had not reckoned with Polly's inventiveness. When she heard the commotion of the grooms arrival she set f1re to a p11e of wool cardings stored in the attic. Her shouts of "Fire! Fire!" brought results: she was quickly freed. Her father and brothers rushed into the task of putting out the fire while Polly rode away with her soon?to?be husband. After many years of marriage, a large family and an 1853 migration from Henry County to the new state of Iowa, their story ends with two small markers in the Peoria Cemetery in Story County, Iowa: Rev. James Hutson, 1808?Feb?25 ? 1879?Sep?25.; Mary Hutson, 1811,Dec-17 1892,Nov,18. This story came through their daughter, Elizabeth (Hutson) Dunlap to her son, James T. Dunlop, who passed it along to his son George Dunlap, named for his grandfather who died in the Civil Mar, father of Mrs. Parmenter, who first heard it as a small child, long before she knew of any connection to the Quaker religion or the possibility that the story could be verified in the minutes kept ny a meeting so long ago. Modlin, Mary (Polly) (I19275)
24 "At the convention to consider ratifications of the Federal Constitution, held in Hillsborough (Twp, Randolph Co) in August 1788, NC voted against the new Constitution. As a result of the pro-ratification campaign which followed, the General Assembly, meeting in Fayetteville on November 17, 1788, received many petitions urging the call of a new convention to reconsider the Constitution.

The manuscript Dept of Perkins Library at Duke University holds petitions from 19 counties in its collection "NC State Papers, 1788-1789." Among these petitions is one drown up by the militia companies of Randolph County. This is a valuable roster of the county's citizens in late 1788, and the Journal is pleased to publish it, with kind permission of the Manuscript Dept.

As those who have puzzled over and deciphered eighteenth century manuscripts know all too well, this material can be hard to read, especially lists of proper names. Fortunately in this instance company leaders signed for all of the men in the group and there is thus some uniformity of handwriting. With the help of Mrs Carolyn Hager and other researchers in the Genealogical Society, the rosters have been carefully deciphered and compared to those of contemporary documents for the county. It is likely that some inaccuracies have gotten through, however. If you note ways the list can be made more accurate, we will be more than pleased to hear from you." Joe C Rees, Duke University Library.

Undated document: Probably prepared between Sept & October, 1788.

To the honorable the General Assembly of NC now siitting at Fayetteville
The petition of sundry inhabitants within the county of Randolph humbly
sheweth - -
That our minds are deeply impress'd with the truth of that maxim by which
was brought about our glorious revolution to wit
"By Union we stand by Disunion we fall" and we think that union is as
necessary at this time, as any period during the war, for the preservation of
our Independent Republican form of government as well as for the preservation
of our lives, libertys, and propertys- - -
That we have a just sense of the Miserable State we must shortly be
reduced to should we separate from our Sister States with whom we have
fought, bled, and nobly conquered - - and who to shew their great
willingness to continue in union with us have given up one of their greatest
local benefits for the general good to wit their Imposts a sum sufficient for
the present to pay off our part of the Interest of the Foreign debt and which
may in future by the increase of commerce be also sufficient to pay the
principal - -
That we believe in our concienses the future hapiness & prosperity of
this State depends on our firm Union with our Sister States and the speedy
ratification of the Federal Constitution what ever the opposers of it may,
from ill grounded fears, prejudices, or self interested motives, say to the
contrary - -
Not doubting but that the Congress when organiz'd will in a
Constitutional manner make any amendment which may be thought necessary for
the general good of the Union
Under this firm belief we pray that your Honourable body will call a new
Convention to reconsider the federal Constitution & Ratify the same on the
part of this State that we may, in Union, haave ashare in common with the
other States in framing the Federal Laws, Choosing the great officers of
government, and making all the necessary amendments to the Constitution - -
and your petitions as in duty bound will ever pray.

25 "In 1765 Benjamin Ellis sold his property in Rowan Co., NC (Deed Bk, 6, pg. 167-168) and moved his family to old Tryon Co., NC. Then in 1786 Benjamin moved a little farther west purchasing property in Greenville Co., SC in 1786 (Greenville Co., SC Deed Bk A, pg. 38). (This deed was witnessed by James Copeland, and John Bates. James Copeland had previously witnessed a deed for Benjamin Ellis in Rowan Co., NC, 1761). Between 1795-1798 the families were selling their SC property and moved to an area of Summer & Smith Counties in TN. Benjamin Ellis died 1802 near Hartsville, TN.

Benjamin Ellis settled on South Bear Creek in 1815 in Montgomery Co. MO. He was a wheelwright and chair maker, and also had a hand mill. He had 10 children. James Ellis settled on Bear Creek in 1819. If this is accurate, then he didn't die in TN.

27 "Obituary, Mrs. P.A. Presnall, wife of Caleb Presnall, copied from CLARKE COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY, QUARTERLY, Clarke County, Alabama, Volume 21, No. 3, Winter, 1996-7.

Died at Jackson, Ala, 6 Sept 1864 after a few days' illness, Mrs. P.A. Presnall, wife of Caleb Presnall. It is well and truly said that in the 'midst of life we are in death.' She has long been a consistent and highly esteemed member of the Baptist Church, & died, as we believe, with a firm hope of a blessed immortality in heaven. As a wife she was devoted, confiding & true, as a mother she was affectionate & gentle, as a neighbor she was kind, amiable & obliging, and as a Christian she was submissive, obedient & faithful. She leaves five young children in this world of sorrows who can never more know the tender care of a loving & doting mother. A. Friend."
