She was never married but had 10 children and gave them all the Presley last name.

Her mother, Martha died in childbirth in 1868 while married to William Steele.

After Martha's death, Rosella and her sister, Rosalinda, went to live for a time with their grandmother, Millie Brown Wesson/Wessen, per 1880s Census.

William Steele, a Civil War veteran, had abused his step-daughters and fathered the first born of each, including Rosella's first born, Walter G. Pressley who was born 1879.

It is believed that William Steele was William Walter Steele from Nottingham, England, born April 7, 1834 died December 23, 1898.
