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.

    (Bible) Feb 1841 Bibb Co., AL, bur. Pratt-Wallace Cem., River

    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.,

       Windbush COCHRAN b. 13 Feb 1838 Perry Co., AL, d. 4 Jan 1918  
       Brookland, Sabine Co., dau. of Rev. Wm. L. Cochran.  He was  
       listed in the 1850 census with Duncan JOHNSON, Fam. #497, as  
       named Johnson which is an error.  He served in Co. B, 44th AL,  
       Inf. 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  
       which was an error.

       of her cousin Frances Myra PRATT (#2X).  He was a son of  
       Matthew WALLACE and Rachel LEETH.  Matthew was a son of John  
       WALLACE for whom John BLAKE gave a witness statement in 1832 as
       having seen his discharge certificate from the Revolutionary  
       Army.  She was listed in the Duncan JOHNSON family in 1850  
       census, Fam. #497, and 1860 census, Fam. #948.  John was a  
       cousin of Pulaskie Wallace.  The name of Pulaskie's father is  
       not known at this time.

    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.

       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.
