My line goes from my mother (Erma Lee Hayes) to her mother (Blanche Mae Tanner)to her mother (Eliza J Presswood). She is the daughter of Cullen Presswood and Eliza Jane Roberts. Cullen is the son of Josiah Presswood and Catharine Codwell. From there, I can't find any verifiable parents. This line was in Pinckneyville, IL.
Most people seem to have Augustine Prestwood as Josiah's father but no one seems to really know. And a lot of the information is contradictory. Also, I see several trees that has Josiah married 3 times. Again the timeline just doesn't work.
Does anyone have any verifiable information on Josiah Presswood and Catharine Codwell? I am very new at this and don't really know where to go to next. Thank you.
