Presher family

Where are all the Presher's. There were at least two families that came from Westchester County, NY. There is my William who was b. 10 Dec 1759 I believe in Cortlandt, Westchester County, NY, d. abt 1822 in Sheshequin, Bradford County, PA, who m. abt 1786 to Anna Wright b. 1768. He was in the Rev War and 1790 Census. Also there was an Abraham [1790 Census & Rev War] and a Henry that is mentioned in a Westchester history. Henry may have been the father of these two or a brother or? Some of the children of Henry or Abraham moved to Tioga County, NY. Also there was a William there but he was a descendant of either Abraham or Henry, I believe. My John R. Presher also lived in Tioga County, NY for a while, but he was the son of William who moved to PA. There must be some way we can put our information together and figure out how these people connect. Keep researching and so will I. I need information on Abraham or Henry's family, and maybe we can get this together. Would be glad to share what I have on William b. in 1759 and his descendants. There was a phamplet published in 1964 that stated William was born in Lorraine, Germany, but since finding him in Westchester and finding his son, Wright Presher b. 1789 buried there I believe he may have been born there as I have found this information when he was in the Rev. War. Also found info written by Dickerson Rogers who m. this William's daughter, Sarah, and he states they moved to PA. John and Sarah with their children and spouses eventually went to Wisconsin.

So let's combine our info, if that is possible! Thanks, Thora
