Elvis Aaron Presley born January 8, 1935 in Tupelo,Mississippi. He was born to the parents of Gladys Love Smith (1912-1958) and Vernon Elvis Presley (1916-1979) in a two room shotgun house in Tupelo, Mississippi.On the same day Elvis was born he had a twin that did not make it and his name was Jesse Presley and he was buried in a unmarked place at Priceville Cemetery in Tupelo.Mississippi.

FUN FACT- Did you know that Uncle Jesse, from the show “Full House”, was named after Jesse Presley, Elvis’s brother that died soon after birth, that’s why the character had an obsession for "The King of Rock and Roll" and why you see Elvis references and merchandise in the TV show.

In August 1953 Elvis walked into Sun Studios, owned by Sam Phillips, and paid some money for some recording time to make a 2 sided tape for his mother and that is when he recorded “That's alright Mama.”

Then on May 1, 1967 Elvis married the love of his life Priscilla Beaulieu. Then on February 1, 1968 in Memphis,Tennessee little Lisa Marie Presley was born.
On October 9, 1973 Elvis and Priscilla got a divorce.

August 16 1977, at the age 42 ,at his home in Memphis TN, Elvis Presley died of a heart attack. The world was in shock when they heard about the death of a famous person like him. Now his body lays to rest along side his parents and brother at Graceland in Memphis TN.
