Hasea Preslar Born 1815, Father Stephan Preslar (my Grandmother was Ophelia Preslar, decendant of Samuel Preslar). Most of the Preslars came from Anson County, NC, moved to Texas during the Civil War. We decend from Valentine Preslar, Born 1669, Germany - his wife was Anna Chritina Franse.
In 1709, wanting to make a better life for themselves, the Preslars left Germany - went to England to get permission to come to America (had to change their religion to do so). In December 1709, the ships left for New York. Many settled in North Carolina.
