Forgive me if I suggest something you've already tried. Have you checked probate records for Habersham Co, GA? See if any Presley died and named family members? Check land records to see if anyone named Presley had "et al" after his name in the index? You probably know that means "others", and is a record you for sure want to see, because only the first named on the record is listed in the index. Heirs may have sold land they inherited. You sometimes can pick up married daughters, because their husband's names were usually included in the sale of inherited land. Did John & Rachel marry in TN? Have you checked Sistler's early TN marriage indexes?
