Elizabeth Louise Hill Pruitt
Hello David -

Find A Grave Memorial# 50510827 is where you left flowers. I am NOT exactly related to this line, but am researching the HILL side and looking for the parents of Elizabeth's father, Wilburn Hill.

But in my research, I always come across information that others may need. So here is Elizabeth's obituary.

Seymour Daily Tribune newspaper, Seymour, IN
Monday 6 December 1937;Front Page , Column 4

Mrs. Pruitt Is Called Beyond

Aged Woman Dies Sunday at Home of Daughter in Greenwood

Mrs. Elizabeth Louise Pruitt, age seventy-five, residing on Norman rural rout 1, two and on-half miles west of Houston, died at 4 o'clock Sunday morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Davis Adams, in Greenwood, where she had gone a week ago to visit.

Mrs. Pruitt had been ill for the past two years with heart disease.

Funeral services will be conducted at 1:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon from the Houston Church. Burial in the Houston Cemetery.

Mrs. Pruitt was born on September 30, 1862, near Houston on the farm where she resided at eh time of her death. She was the daughter of Wilburn and Nancy Lutes Hill and lived all of her life in this county. She was married in 1880 at Brownstown to Dunham Pruitt, who survives.

She was a member of the Methodist Church and was well known throughout the western part of the county.

Besides the husband, Mrs. Pruitt is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Adams, at whose home she died; Mrs. Delmar Croucher and Mrs. Cleve Mobley, both living on Norman rural route 1 and a sister, Mrs. Jack Goble, residing on Norman rural route 1. A son, Vernon Hill Pruitt, preceded her in death.

I don't know if your email is the same, but I also sent you via the address on the memorial.

Should you discover Elizabeth's HILL grandparents, please keep me in mind.

Happy ancestor hunting!

Pruitt, Pruet, Pruett,,
David, you have helped me once before and I can see I need a lot more help. You seem to be the best source I have found and your information is so correct. Thank you so much for gathering all this information.
How could I get your family tree for the Pruet
side (my mothers side) from you.
My Grandmother Alta Elizabeth Pruet(Gibson)(Goodwin)(Aufdenkamp) 3-6-1908 Died 5-29-1967
Her father Jyles Leslie Pruet 1885-1935
Robert Gregory Pruet 1856-1936
Walter Evert Pruett 1827-1917
etc. You said we were related back to Henry James Pruitt 1654.
I suspect I may be asking a lot and do not know how to reciprocate fairly. Tell me what I need to do so I can gather more information. I would be happy to pay for printing, mailings, etc. Or send pictures etc. Alta Elizabeth Pruet, Jyles Leslie Pruet and his father Robert Gregory Pruet were in New Mexico in 1909 and I have pictures of them all out west on their homestead. They surveyed for the railroad and I even have pictures of their conestago wagon.

RE: Walter Evert Pruet (1827-1918)
David, thankyou very much for the feedback.
I really do appreciate it. I do not know
of any Pruet's living, so it is kind of nice
to meet you.

I was on and found names going back
to Henry Prewitt (1654-1722). Do you know if your
information was from

Also on Walter Pruett (10/30/1827-2/11/1918)someone wrote a great history of him on find a grave. Would you have any idea who that was??

Walter Evert Pruet (1827-1918)
thank you for your response. I understand you needed more information.
Walter Evert Pruet was my 3rd great grandfather.
His one son Robert Gregory Pruet (1856-1936) and then again his son Jyles Leslie Pruet (1885-1935)
and then again he had 4 daughters. Alta Elizabeth
Pruet (my grandmother). For the most part they lived in South Muddy Township, Ill, Olney, Charleston.

Robert Gregory Pruet and his son Jyles took their
families and went to NM to survey for the railroad
in 1906 (?). I have several pictures of three generations of them in New Mexico about that time.

They then went home to Illinois.

My question to you is how are we related. I do not
know all of the names of their children.And also who wrote that nice writeup about Walter Evert Pruet (one of Jasper county's selfmade men). Can
you help. I noticed your name was the last or first on Walter Evert Pruet (1827-1918) page.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
