Abbeville County
South Carolina, USA

Jane Pressly, daughter of John and Isabella Pressly, was born in 1762. Her parents were both Scotch-Irish Presbyterians who emigrated to America, part of Rev. William Martin and his five ships that arrived in Charlestown in the fall of 1772 and settling in the area around Long Cane in Abbeville District, South Carolina.

At the age of 21, on June 8th 1784, Jane Pressly married Joseph Hearst, son of John and Elizabeth Hearst. The Hearst came to South Carolina from Ireland in late 1765 or early 1766 with Dr. Thomas Clark and settled in the Long cane area, as well. Jane and Joseph had known each other as children, both members of Long cane and Cedar Springs A. R. P. churches. This blessed union had six known children.

Jane Pressly Hearst departed this life on the 6th of September 1828, at the aged of 66 years old. Jane is buried near her husband and brother, David Pressly in the churchyard cemetery at Cedar Springs.
