The Presley/Preslar/Pressly Report may or may not have relations, yet has a great quote...

"Roughly ninety per cent of all the people who ever existed slipped into complete oblivion, without leaving even their names behind. The loss of their identities, like the extinction of a species, is irreparable."
THE NEW YORKER, May 13, 1985, "A Reporter at Large. The Mountain of Names" by Alex Shournatoff.

Always fun finding some well known person connected to the family.
They are missing a person below so I doubt this tree below is accurate at all!
