    More Information:

    A native of Prussia, Karl Wilhelm "Charles" Pressler (1823-1907) studied cartography and surveying in Weisensee before joining the Adelsverein and immigrating to Texas in 1846. Almost immediately he began work for Jacob De Cordova, leading his surveying expeditions and assisting him on his well-known 1849 map of Texas. In 1850 he began work with the General Land Office, a post he would hold for 49 years, only interrupted by his time spent in the Confederate engineering department, during the Civil War. After the war, he returned to the General Land Office.
