Last Edited26 Aug 2017
Birth*1819Georgia, USA; Thomas Preston in the 1860 census is identified as age 38, born in Georgia. The 1850 census has a Thomas Preston age 30, born in Alabama. I believe they are they same person and that Georgia is the correct birthplace and 1819 is the birth date.1 
(Heir) Will13 August 1849(Testator) David Preston; Inferior Court, Crawford County, Georgia, USA; David Preston left a will (see attached photocopy). Named were wife Nancy Preston, son Thomas W. Preston (Executor), children Andrew James Preston, John Preston, William S. Preston, David Brady Preston, and Mary Mathews, wife of James Mathews.
Witnesses included Enoch Mathews and Charles H. Walker (witnesses are from a later court document, not the surviving will copy itself).
The will was proved in Inferior Court in September 1850.2
(Head of Household) Census17 August 1850GA Crawford Co Census 1850; Division No. 20, household 176, Crawford County, Georgia, USA; "Thos Preston" age 30, born in Alabama, occupation overseer, real estate $600. He is the only one in the household. The nearest planters were T. T. Smith and Jacob Lowe3

"Nancy Preston" age 85, born in Georgia, with real estate valued at $5000 and a personal estate valued at $27,790. [this is likely Nancy Jane McCann Preston, widow of David Preston - if so, supports the theory that David Preston / Nancy Jane McCann born Ireland were Thomas W.'s parents. Reported age 85 is consistent with Nancy Preston's reported age in 1850, in household with David Preston. However, Nancy's birth place is reported Georgia in this census, while Nancy Jane McCann was born in Ireland c1781];
Also counted in the household were a John Stinson (age 45) listed as born in Ireland, and a Michael Radford (age 40) listed as born in Ireland, occupations listed as ditchers.1
