George Preston was born in 1762 in Prestwich, Lancashire, England. He married Elizabeth Barker, also of Prestwich, Lancashire, England, on November 30, 1784. They had 6 children. John born Jan 25,1789. Elizabeth born Feb 13, 1791. George born March 31 1793, George born May 1, 1796 and John born May 22, 1785.

The names John, George and Daniel are very common in the Preston family. I believe when the first John and George's were born they lived only a short time. In order to keep the name alive, subsequent male children were named in honor of the children passed and possibly to honor older ancenstors. Daniel and Elizabeth are the roots of this tree as of this posting.

My great great great great grandfather.
