I am the genealogist for the Richard Pratt Family of Bibb Co., AL. This represents only the earliest generations and is a small portion of what I have, and is given here without references. In 1998 we had the 75th Annual Reunion of the descendants of Richard Pratt in the Schultz Creek Baptist Church, River Bend, Bibb Co., AL. The family has met on July 4th every year since 1924. A typed genealogy, The Pratt Family, was issued in 1966, by Dr. Cary McCord, a Pratt descendant, compiled by Helen U. Lofquist, of Chicago. Richard PRATT b. 1765 probably Rowan Co., NC, d. 10 Jul 1822 River Bend, Bibb Co., AL, m.c. 1789 Rockingham? Co., NC, Rebecca BEAVERS b. 1770 Rowan? Co., NC, d. 16 Jun 1847 River Bend, Bibb Co., AL, dau. of William and Abigail BEAVERS of the Surry Co. area. Both are bur. in the Pratt-Wallace Cem., River Bend. Richard's tombstone has two errors on it. It says he was b. Stokes Co., SC. There never was a Stokes Co., SC and no Stokes Co. when he was born. Stokes Co., NC was formed in 1789 from Surry Co., and Surry Co., was formed in 1770 from Rowan Co. If he were born in this area it would have been in Rowan Co. 1 Hopkins PRATT b. 17 Dec 1791 Rockingham Co., NC, d. 11 (t.s.) 27 (Bible) Feb 1841 Bibb Co., AL, bur. Pratt-Wallace Cem., River Bend, Bibb Co., m. 7 Mar 1816 Warren Co., TN Sarah DICKERSON b. 1800 NC. Sarah m(2) 11 Feb 1845 Centreville Duncan JOHNSON, the father of Joshua West JOHNSON who m. Mariah BLAKE (see #44) 11 Rebecca Caroline PRATT b. 8 Apr 1817 AL?, d. 19 Jul 1825 Bibb Co. 12 Griselda PRATT b. 28 Dec 1818 Cahawba Co., AL Terr., d. m. 22 Sep 1836 Bibb Co., William F. BURKHALTER b.c. 1812 TN. To MS c. 1842 and to TX c. 1854. 13 Clarissa PRATT b. 8 Dec 1820 Cahawba Co., AL, d. 23 Jul 1845, m. 26 Apr 1838 Bibb Co., Isaac BURKHALTER b. 1818 TN as his first wife. He m(2) Caroline b. 1832 AL who is with him in the 1850 census. In the 1850 census he has a son, McGinnis, aged 5, who could be a son of Clarissa born about the time she died. I don't know where she died and I don't know when he moved to MS. Certainly Melton, aged 1 is a son of Caroline and not a Pratt descendant. 14 Durana PRATT b. 16 Feb 1823 Bibb Co., d. 17 Jul 1899 Bibb Co., m. 22 Oct 1841 Bibb Co. Pulaski WALLACE b. 2 Feb 1821 AL, d. 1 Apr 1900 Bibb Co., both bur. in Pratt-Wallace Cem. 15 Hampton PRATT b. 2 Sep 1825 Bibb Co., d. 4 Dec 1906 Sabine Co., TX, m. 6 Jan 1846 Bibb Co., Mary Lucinda POTTS b.

Regt. 18 Andrew Jackson PRATT b. 10 Sep 1834 Bibb Co., d. c. 1863 m. Missouri EASLEY . To TX. He was in the C.S.A.

He was listed in the 1850 Census with Duncan JOHNSON, Fam. #497, as named Johnson, and in 1860, Fam. #948, named Pratt. 1A Margaret Lucy PRATT b. 16 Nov 1841, d. 16 Jan 1847. (Ref. Hampton Pratt's Bible. Without proof, I think this girl is Hampton's sister. In his Bible, Hampton listed the births of only his children, his brothers, his sisters, and a few of the children of his sister Durana. He did not list any of his other nephews and neices. She was b. 8 months after Hopkins died. As she d. in 1847, she was never listed in any census. 2 Absolem PRATT b. 22 Jun 1793 Stokes Co., NC, d. 9 Jul 1845 Bibb Co., m. 7 Mar 1822 Bibb Co., Mary DICKERSON (sister of Hopkins PRATT's wife Sarah DICKERSON) b.

His second wife, Arvezena, had no children. 26 Leonard Callaway PRATT b. 21 May 1829 Bibb Co., d. 27 Apr 1918 Bibb Co., m. 23 Oct 1861 Bibb Co., Mary Jane CLEMENTS b. 9 Jun 1840 Bibb Co., d. 23 May 1923, both bur. Schultz Creek Baptist Church Cem. The marr. lic. application is recorded in the court house but without the return of the license with the date of marriage and the minister's signature, it is only an application. The license must be returned to have the record made of the marriage. Without this, the State of Alabama does not know that a marriage has been performed and there is no LEGAL record. 27 William Fletcher PRATT b. 20 Dec 1830 Bibb Co., d. 17 Apr 1866, bur.
