Elvis Presley Genealogy
On January 8, 1935 Elvis Aron Presley was born very early in the morning. He was son to Vernon Presley and Gladys Love Smith, a truck driver and sewing machinist. His mother gave birth in their two-room house in East Tupelo, Mississippi. Elvis was actually a twin, but his brother Jesse was stillborn. The family’s last name was changed to Presley during the Civil War from its German original, “Pressler.” The Elvis Presley Genealogy puts him at the third generation born in the United States. Johann Valentin Pressler immigrated back in 1710 to the United States.
Elvis’ family tree history had its roots in the deep south of Mississippi, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama. All four of his grandparents were born and lived in Mississippi. Vernon’s parents, Jessie D.M. Presley and Minnie Mae Hood, both died in different states. Jessie spent his last years in Kentucky, and Minnie in Tennessee. Gladys’ parents, Robert Lee Smith and Octavia L. Mansell, both lived and died in Mississippi. The Elvis Presley Genealogy also reveals that Elvis was mostly Scottish and English. His background also included Irish, Native American, and German
