    From Obit placed on Preslar Yahoo List:
    "Obituary for J.R. Preslar
    Death came peacefully to Mr. J.R. Preslar on June 17, at the home of his son, Hurley, where for several months he was tenderly cared for by his son and wife. He was born Jan. 18, 1860, in Cheraw, SC. In 1881 he was happily married to Miss Margaret Sykes. To this union were born 11 children, seven of whom survived: Frank, Watt and Hurley, Mrs. Conley Smith, Mrs. James Williams, Mrs. Jesse Morton and Mrs. W.I. Sinclair, as does one brother, Mr. W.W. Preslar of Peachland. There are 32 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.
    Mr. Preslar was a faithful member of Cedar Grove church, which played a vital part in his life. There was a large attendance and many beautiful floral tributes at the funeral."
