Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching the PRATHER and associated families for 30+ yrs and manage a Prather genealogy site. With the growth of "social media" we created a FACEBOOK page, too, for the exchange and dissemination of family information. As a retired aerospace worker, I can now dedicate more time to the hobby.

The latest is to use DNA testing to substantiate our traditional genealogy research. If you want details, email me.

RE: Ross/Elliott
I don't think I could be of any help as I do not have any pictures of Frances but I will send you an email. In 1907, my Frances would have been about 25.

RE: Michael Dota
I always think it's a bit sad when the family doesn't at least put a name plate one the grave. How much could it cost for those plastic temporary ones?

I added a photo from the location of Michael's grave but there is no marker.

I suspect that Michael's grave is unmarked as I have photographed the entire cemetery. Obviously, it's also possible that I missed it. I've been having problems getting more information from the cemetery office (which is actually the City of Kirkland). I have been told that Michael is buried in Block 22, lot 140, grave 8, but none of the sections are marked and I don't have any maps for that area of the cemetery. I have further been hampered by illness, a broken vehicle and the holiday. I will pursue this more aggressively next week and hopefully be able to determine for sure whether or not the grave is marked. Do not give up and I will let you know how my search goes.

I hope that you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

RE: Dorothy E Prather Gentry
I wish I could help you. I spoke with Dorothy's daughter this evening. She does not have the records and not sure what has happened to them. She does remember a cousin Donnie but not much about him. She had very little contact with the Prather's growing up. Her grandmother Vienna and grandfather Marvin had been divorced for a long time. I'm sorry we couldn't have been more helpful.

RE: Dorothy E Prather Gentry
One of Dorothy's daughters is my (step) mother-in-law. Are you related to the family? I noticed your last name is Prather.

I just uploaded another photo of the stone. The date looks more like 1838 than 1888. I thought this might help, in case you have an ancestor who was born in, or died in, 1838.

her name being on as a sibling I think has to do with linking parents all of my family memorials have themselves on there but its in grey and isn't linked to another page so its has to do with how they have the site set up.
