Surnames: PRATHER
LOOKING FOR MY PRATHER COUSINS ON MY FATHER'S SIDE - HIS FATHER'S RELATIVES. HIS NAME WAS EMERY PRATHER & WAS BORN 13 MAY 1915 IN GAITHERSBURG, MD. HIS DAD, MY GRANDFATHER, WAS ALONZO PRATHER b. IN MARYLAND & MARRIED ERMA CAMPBELL. GRANDPA ALONZO HAD 11 SIBLINGS: BROTHERS, DARIUS, JOHN WHO WASN'T A JR. & ELGIE & SISTERS, LUCY, HESTER, HARRIETT, CORA OR CLARA,THAT I CAN NAME, MY GRANDPA WAS THE YOUNGEST & A COUSIN WHO LIVED WITH THEM NAMED ROBERT LEWIS b MAR 1897. WE USED TO VISIT MY DAD'S COUSIN LEO PRATHER, EVERYTIME WE CAME TO PITTSBURGH AS KIDS & ANOTHER COUSIN DICK (PRATHER?) WHO LIVED IN GAITHERSBURG, MD. MY DADDY SAID THERE WERE SO MANY PRATHERS THAT PEOPLE CALLED THE AREA 'PRATHERTOWN' & I REMEMBER SEEING A STREET NAMED PRATHERTOWN, I HAVEN'T BEEN TO MARYLAND SINCE 1961.
I HAVE AN EXTENSIVE WRITTEN TREE ON MY FATHER'S MOTHER'S SIDE, THE BROWN'S, I RECEIVED AROUND 1977 AT A FAMILY REUNION IN MARYLAND FROM HER SIDE - IT WAS THE BROWN/PRATHER REUNION, THERE WERE AROUND 300 PEOPLE THERE, AND SEVERAL DIFFERENT SIDES OF THE BROWNS MARRIED SEVERAL DIFFERENT SIDES OF THE PRATHERS - KATHLEEN NOLAN b AROUND 1890 MARRIED JAMES PRATHER; LENA BROWN b AROUND 1915 MARRIED ROGER PRATHER; MABEL BROWN b AROUND 1920 (NOT LENA'S SISTER) MARRIED WATSON PRATHER SR. - I THINK I HAVE A PH # FOR WATSON JR WHO IS A FEW YRS OLDER THAN I; and MY GRANDMOTHER ERMA CAMPBELL MARRIED MY GRANDFATHER ALONZO PRATHER b. AROUND 1877. I THINK MY GREAT GRANDFATHER WAS JOHN N. PRATHER WHO WAS MARRIED ANN POSS. AROUND 1840, NOT SURE BUT HER MAIDEN NAME MAY HAVE BEEN MACABEE(SPELLING?). I HAVE FOUND SEVERAL PRATHER LINES IN DIFFERENT GENERATIONS WITH THE NAMES ALONZO & HESTER IN IT SO NOT SURE IF MY GRANDPA ALONZO WAS RAISED IN DIFFERENT PLACES SEPARATE FROM HIS PARENTS OR IF ALONZO IS A FAMILY NAME, THE HESTERS ARE IN DIFFERENT AGE BRACKETS & SO MIGHT BE A FAMILY NAME. THE ALONZO'S I FIND MIGHT ALL BE DIFFERENT PEOPLE, TOO. MY DADDY'S IMMEDIATE FAMILY LIVED IN MARYLAND, WASHINGTON, D.C. & PITTSBURGH, PA & MY DADDY & MOM MOVED TO EVANSTON, ILLINOIS AROUND 1947 WHERE I WAS BORN & GREW UP. THERE WERE PRATHER'S IN EVANSTON,IL., MY HOME TOWN, BUT MY DADDY ALWAYS SAID WE WERE NOT RELATED BUT SINCE FINDING SO MAY PRATHER'S MARRIED IN WITH OTHER COUSINS HE DIDN'T KNOW, WE MAY ALL BE COUSINS AFTERALL! ANY INFO PLEASE CONTACT ME.
