Wilson, I checked the online bio/obit database at NO Public Library and there is no PRESTIDGE listed. There is also an online index to obits which were published in the "Memphis Appeal" and again, no luck. You can check it out at:

I checked another database, 19th Century Newspapers, and only found this very brief notice:

"Prestidge - At 6:15 p.m., February 2, 1892, James S." [Source: "Daily Picayune", New Orleans, Wednesday, 3 Feb. 1892, pg. 4, Issue 10, col. G]

Sorry I can't be of more help.
