All three of the above were sons of Rufus & Sarah (Slaughter) Prestidge. Although John’s birth date on his tombstone is 1 Dec 1862, I believe he was actually born in 1860. His sister, Mary Jane, is always shown as being two years younger than John in every census in which they appeared together, and in the Hood County, Texas school records. According to census records and her tombstone, Mary Jane was born in Dec 1862.
