(Immigrant) ImmigrationAugust 1832Elizabeth Jane Clark, James Preston; Whitehall, New York, USA; James and Elizabeth Preston lived in Carlisle, Cumberland, England for at least six years where they had three children. In 1832, with children ages 6, 4, and 2, they migrated to the U.S., arriving at Whitehall, New York in August of that year according to James' later application for U. S. citizenship. They likely went directly on to Georgia where others of the Preston family were established.

There appear to be no surviving records of immigrants arriving at Whitehall and in fact records may not have been kept. According to the Whitehall Historical Society, "Whitehall is mentioned quite often as a "port of entry" early in the 19th century but we have found no records here. ... Many immigrants stopped in Whitehall only to change transportation from lake to canal or coach on their way to other areas." It may be that immigrants listed Whitehall as the entry point because it was their first land stop in the U.S. Without knowing the specifics for the Preston family, in general Canada was a favored immigration route for families from Ireland and England who wanted to resettle in Canada or the U.S. Among other factors, the route through Canada was less expensive due to tariffs that England placed on fares to U.S. ports, intended to encourage settlement of British Canada while discouraging further U.S. settlement.

European immigrants to Canada would most often arrive at Quebec City where they would transfer to river steamboats. Several steamboat companies operated between Quebec City and Montreal, ferrying passengers to Montreal, and carrying cargo intended for export back to Quebec. One with some surviving records was the St. Lawrence Steamboat Company but a search of their records does not show Prestons traveling on their ships in 1832. From Montreal, travelers could take a coach south to the nearest navigable point on Lake Champlain on the Richeleau River at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. There they could board a steamboat (from a company such as the Lake Champlain Steamboat Company) to Whitehall, New York at the southern tip of Lake Champlain. From Whitehall travelers could travel by stagecoach or canal boat to Albany and the Hudson River and further to New York City.

In his book American Notes, Charles Dickens journals his travels through America in 1842, and describes in some detail the trip from Montreal to Whitehall as well as his experience on a steamboat carrying immigrants from Quebec City to Montreal.1,4,5

Journal*Elizabeth Jane Clark; James Preston and Elizabeth Ann Clark are the earliest known Preston and Clark ancestors of the Oklahoma Balkcom/Baldwin families and are the most recent immigrant ancestors. James and Elizabeth were born in Ireland in around 1797-98. By 1826 they lived in Carlisle, England and in 1832 they migrated to America with their children ages 6, 4, and 2, arriving at the inland port of Whitehall, New York in August 1832. By 1836 they lived in Crawford County, Georgia near relatives from England and Ireland. Sometime after 1850 they moved to Dale County, Alabama where some of their adult children lived.

The earliest records found for James and Ann are Christenings of their first three children at Carlisle St. Mary Church (Church of England) in Carlisle, England between 1826 and 1830. As Protestants their ancestors are likely to have been from England or Scotland originally and to have been encouraged or granted land by the English crown to settle in Ireland. This land was often confiscated from local Irish owners. 
CommentResearcher Penny Dodd published a web site at one time and included an excellent narrative on the James Preston family. Some information from that is extracted below, citing her as the source.

(Immigrant) ImmigrationAugust 1832Elizabeth Jane Clark, James Preston; Whitehall, New York, USA; James and Elizabeth Preston lived in Carlisle, Cumberland, England for at least six years where they had three children. In 1832, with children ages 6, 4, and 2, they migrated to the U.S., arriving at Whitehall, New York in August of that year according to James' later application for U. S. citizenship. They likely went directly on to Georgia where others of the Preston family were established.

There appear to be no surviving records of immigrants arriving at Whitehall and in fact records may not have been kept. According to the Whitehall Historical Society, "Whitehall is mentioned quite often as a "port of entry" early in the 19th century but we have found no records here. ... Many immigrants stopped in Whitehall only to change transportation from lake to canal or coach on their way to other areas." It may be that immigrants listed Whitehall as the entry point because it was their first land stop in the U.S. Without knowing the specifics for the Preston family, in general Canada was a favored immigration route for families from Ireland and England who wanted to resettle in Canada or the U.S. Among other factors, the route through Canada was less expensive due to tariffs that England placed on fares to U.S. ports, intended to encourage settlement of British Canada while discouraging further U.S. settlement.

European immigrants to Canada would most often arrive at Quebec City where they would transfer to river steamboats. Several steamboat companies operated between Quebec City and Montreal, ferrying passengers to Montreal, and carrying cargo intended for export back to Quebec. One with some surviving records was the St. Lawrence Steamboat Company but a search of their records does not show Prestons traveling on their ships in 1832. From Montreal, travelers could take a coach south to the nearest navigable point on Lake Champlain on the Richeleau River at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. There they could board a steamboat (from a company such as the Lake Champlain Steamboat Company) to Whitehall, New York at the southern tip of Lake Champlain. From Whitehall travelers could travel by stagecoach or canal boat to Albany and the Hudson River and further to New York City.

In his book American Notes, Charles Dickens journals his travels through America in 1842, and describes in some detail the trip from Montreal to Whitehall as well as his experience on a steamboat carrying immigrants from Quebec City to Montreal.1,4,5 
Birth-Alt.31 October 1833Georgia, USA; Note 1870 census lists birthplace as Georgia, 1880 census lists as England, and 1900 census lists as at-sea. Georgia is the most likely given that his father James Preston stated in his application for naturalization as a US citizen that he arrived in the US at Whitehall NY in August 1832.6,7,8,9

Comment*1880There are inconsistencies in the link between this 1880 person and the one I identified as the same in the 1870 census.

The 1880 census lists JW Preston as age 53; the 1870 census listed John Preston as 37, birthplace is listed as Georgia. But 1880 neighbors are the same as in 1870, and wife is Mary although Mary age is reported 4 years different between 1870 and 1880. Oldest son was James in both, consistent age, but daughter Mary doesn't show up in 1880. In 1880, Two black females age 16 (Cane) and 15 (Cely) with Preston surname also lived in the household. They were listed as born in Alabama, parents in Georgia. In household 207 nearby was Ann Preston (Black, age 60, born in Virginia, parents born in Virginia), and son Henry Preston (age 27, laborer, born in Georgia, parents born in Virginia). Also in the census in this area were the households of William Preston and W. H. Baldwin.
