Preston Wise's parents are incorrectly listed on his death certificate as William Sidney Wise and Mary Elizabeth Clark. The 1850, 1860, and 1870 censuses support that his parents' names were Sidney Smith Wise and Elizabeth Ann Clark.
There is a grave marked with no dates for Preston Wise next to his first wife Lucy Miller Wise in Horns Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. (Ref. the "Quill", official publication of the Old Edgefield District Genealogical Society. Volume XXV, Number 3, May/June 2009 "Tombstone Records from the Burial Grounds of Old Horn's Creek Church."
However, his death certificate states he is buried at Shelton Burying Ground in Blackville where his parents and maternal grandparents are buried. Further evidence is in Barnwell County Cemetery Book Vol. 3, page 55 listing of Shelton Cemetery.
