Please find below, information regarding your questions. This information came from the "found family tree" and the Presnell Family History prepared by Aner Tester Rominger.The family tree found in Oregon was prepared by a sibling of Aner's or most likely Aner herself, as a first draft. The found tree done in 1973-74...Aner's done in 1980. The information in both trees is basically the same family groups. Hope this helps.I would be grateful for any corrections or additions.
