My grandfather, Reuben Martin PRATT, was born in Montgomery County, MO, in Oct 1891(2). His parents, James Martin PRATT and Elizabeth Frances BAKER PRATT, died after the turn of the century (1901-06) and my grandfather was "adopted" by the Carroll WISDOM family. He eventually grew up, married Hattie THOMAS PRATT of Callaway County (in 1917) and had a family and lived the rest of his life in the Holt Summit, MO, area. He died in 1957, the year before my parents married (the late Robert T. PRATT and Norma L. PRATT of New Orleans, LA.) My father had limited information on his father's family due to his grandparents' death at the turn of the century in a flu epidemic. We do know that Reuben had brothers and sisters. The 1900 census verifies that James and Elizabeth PRATT owned a farm in Montgomery County, Prairie Township. Reuben's siblings included Gertrude (born 1879), George Henry (born 1884), and Poarche (born Jan. 1899); two other siblings not living in the home for the 1900 census were James and Jesse. We as a family are trying to determine more information on James and Elizabeth Frances BAKER PRATT. We know Elizabeth's parents were born in England, while James's parents were born in Virginia (according to the 1900 Census). We are trying to determine if a Joseph and Nancy PRATT listed in 1850 and 1860 census records for Montgomery County are James's parents. James Martin PRATT may have had other brothers and sisters as well. Any assistance in piecing together all of this is appreciated.
