I have not been able to connect to the Austin Presswood
that I have some information on...There was an Austin
Presswood, according to the handbook of Texas who settled
at what is now New Caney, Texas. It originally was known
as Presswood. It states that it was named after Austin
and Sarah Waters Presswood who were in the area in 1862 and
raised cattle on the open range. There is an Austin Presswood who is listed in 1840-1850 Tn. census. He was born
in Asheville, N.C. in 1789 and died in Monroe co. Tn. This
info I got from the net and you will have to check it for
authenticity. I hope it helps. Katy. email me at
