    Biography


    • BIOGRAPHY by Albert Cadwallader Worrell: He moved to Philadelphia, probably following his brother, David, and established a very successful business career. Family tradition says that Preston and David were profiteers during the Civil War. Whether this was true or not, he died a wealthy man and gave his occupation in his will as "gentleman". He never married.

      In his will, he left substantial sums to his two half sisters, their children and the children of his sister Matilda, and various charities. But sixty percent of his estate went to Matilda. He is buried in Media Cemetery in the same plot with Matilda and her family and his brother David.
