Looking for Thomas Presho

Hi Sally- Can we put a photo of Thomas Presho on the Historian's Wanted List?

Found the following information in. Roberts Historical Gazetteer 1891

"Presho formerly Erwin Centre -so called because it was in the center of the Town of Erwin before Lindley was taken off-is located near the northern boundry of the Town of Lindley on the F.B.C.(Fallbrook, Blossburg, Corning) railroad. It contained one church built for the union church,but soon after for some unknown reason dedicated as a methodist house,two stores,one blacksmith shop and wagon repair shop, a school,and thirty or forty families. Formerly, it was a great lumbering point,but now is the center of extensive tobacco growing and farming district.On January 9,1888, the post office was changed to Presho in honor of one of the most public spirited citizens of the hamlet, Thomas J. Presho and on May13 following,the name of the station and express office were changed to Presho.
Thomas J. Presho (son of Josiah N. and Betsy Cutiss) Presho was born in Broome County,New York August 21,1828.The family lived at Dalton, near Pittsfield,Massachusetts prior to their settlement on Broome County. The subject of this notice,after a residence of some years in Bradford Co,Pa. ,he came to this town and settled at Erwin Centre(now Presho)
