STEPHEN JEFFREY PRESTON: Per The Big Sandy Valley by William Ely, page 73, written in 1887:

Stephen, the second son (of Moses), married Miss Miller, and like his brothers, settled on a farm

near where he lived in his boyhood. Here he lived, and here he died, at the age of seventy-four.

Although he had traveled through Indiana in early manhood, he returned to his native soil, happy to

keep his place among brothers and sisters. His wife, Pricie, was a devoted Methodist. She still lives, at

the age of eighty-one, active in body and mind. They have many descendants to honor their name.

Among them is Robert M. Preston, a bright, intelligent gentlemen of Peach Orchard. December

11, 1820, Signed bond for marriage of Archibald Borders and Jenny Preston (his sister). August 20,

1821 appointed constable in District 2. January 26, 1822, Indentured to Joseph Davis for $300.00

for 50 acres on Big Sandy. Listed in the Lawrence Co., KY Marriage Records: 14 Jan 1824,

are from family Bible records unless otherwise noted. The two youngest children of Stephen and Pricy

Miller Preston, Nancy Jane and John Burgess, are not listed in the Bible record. The following

comments regarding the handwriting in the Bible are from margin notations and comments by Patricia

Kelly Mansfield. There appears to be at least 3 different handwritings in this Bible. The last recordings in

this Bible appears to be made by Pricie Preston, granddaughter of Stephen. Descendants of this family

believe some of the recordings were made by John G. Preston, grandson of Stephen Preston and

brother to Pricie. John had beautiful handwriting according to his family and this is reflected in the Bible

records. There is another handwriting in the Bible which has been unidentified but possibly could be that

of Robert or Sarah Childers Preston. (Per: Donna Cox) More About STEPHEN JEFFREY

users/p/r/e/Clara-Preston-OH/GENE8-0809.html>. Notes for MOSES PRESTON II: Per The Big

Sandy Valley by William Ely, pages 76-81 written in 1887: Moses, or ";Coby"; Preston, the third son of

Moses Preston and his wife, nee Miss Arthur, was one of the remarkable men whom the Sandy Valley

has developed. He was born near the birth of the present century, and on coming to manhood married

Elizabeth Haney, a woman of worth and great energy. She bore him a large family of children, who,

following in the footsteps of their honored parents, are the foremost citizens in the Sandy Valley and in

the homes they have hewn out in the far South-west. Soon after Mr. Preston's marriage with Miss

Haney, being of a restless disposition, he, with his young wife, moved to the Scioto Valley country; but,

finding chills and fever as abundant as good land, they shook the dust, or mud, from the soles of their

feet and hastened back to the Great Sandy country. While the move down to Scioto was attended with

expense, the plain, economical ways of life which Mr. Preston adopted in early life, and kept up until the

hour of his death, enabled him to return to the Sandy Valley with more material wealth than he had at

starting. On his return he settled on the place known at the time as the Spencer farm, now the Kise farm,

some miles below George's Creek. Here he lived many years, and prospered greatly. Alone, and

afterward with his brother-in-law, Archibald Borders, he was among the first to engage in peeling and

running tan-bark to Cincinnati, floating it down in barges, constructed, often, out of lumber sawed by

hand, called whip-sawing. He and his brother-in-law, Judge Borders, were as well and favorably known

to the old time tanners and other business men of the Queen City as are the great timber-dealers of the

present time known to the mill-men and builders in Cincinnati. He established a reputation for honesty

and fair-dealing unsurpassed by no one in the business; in some instances the bark went off without

being subject to measurement, so much confidence had the buyers in Mr. Preston's honesty. While tan-

bark was a specialty with him, he was almost as well known as a large timber-dealer. He also sent barge

-loads of hoop-poles and staves to the Cincinnati market. Dealing in bark, cooper-stuff, and saw-logs

combined seems to us to be sufficient for one man's busy attention; but to one with the business

foresight of ";Coby"; Preston this alone was insignificant, and at the same time he carried on a large

general store, and cultivated many farms. By applying business rules to every department of his

extended pursuits, he made money at all, and was never accused of overreaching the hireling that

wrought for him. About the time Johnson County was formed into a separate jurisdiction, which was

in 1843, Mr. Preston moved up to the mouth of Paint Creek, and ever after, as long as he lived, made

that place the center of his business enterprises, although he alternated his residence between the

mouth of Paint and Paintsville, one-half of a mile above, having good residences at both places. Like all

dwellers on the highway with a good house, he entertained the wayfaring man in a sumptuous style at

this home on the river. The wife of his youth, after sharing with him his sorrows and joys, and

assisting her husband by her good counsels and domestic skill, sickened and died, leaving behind a

number of sons, who, by following the good and wholesome advice given them by their mother, and

walking in the footsteps of their father, have, nearly all of them, come to the front as business men and

upright citizens in the vicinity where they were brought up. After the death of his first wife, Mr.

Preston married Nancy, a daughter of David Peery, of Tazewell County, Virginia. They lived in great

peace until his sudden death, in 1870. He and his wife being on a visit to his brother, Arthur, at Graves'

Shoal, after dinner he went to the barn to saddle the horses, to return with his wife to their home at

Paintsville, when one of the animals kicked him so severely that he died almost instantly. His death was

not only a sad blow to his family, but was profoundly regretted by the entire people of the valley; for in

more respects that one a prince among the people had fallen when the life went out of the body of

Moses, or Coby, Preston. While his death was sudden and unexpected to him and others, he had had

the sagacity to make ample provision for his wife, and had, as his sons started out in business, aided

them with a liberal hand; so that no family jar rent the bonds that bound the family together, after he had

left the busy haunts of men. Mr. Preston was an honest man, the noblest work of God. Coby, or

Moses, Preston took a deep interest in political affairs, although he was never an office seeker. He

ignored, to some extent, Church formularies, but squared his life by the Golden Rule. His portrait will be

recognized by the old-time Sandians as one of peculiar correctness. The modern built brick

mansion, the Paintsville residence of his son, Captain Frank Preston, bears testimony to the progress of

architecture in the Sandy Valley. He is, in some respects, the representative of the family. He is a man

of wealth, character, and enterprise, and has the confidence of the entire community in which he lives,

as a merchant, a timber-dealer, a steamboatman, and general business man. He married into one of the
