Death: May 19, 2000

Katie Prater: Age 91, of Hippo, died Friday, May 19, 2000, at Our Lady of the Way Hospital, Martin. Born on September 9, 1908, in Magoffin County, she was the daughter of the late Dillard Bailey and Rosie Vanderpool Bailey. She was a member of the Hueysville Church of Christ. She was preceded in death by her husband, Otis Prater. Survivors include five sons, John R. Prater of Beattyville, Dillard Prater of Harlan, Otis Prater Jr., of Berea, Raymond A. Prater of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Haskel Prater of Hippo; three daughters, Minnie Conley of Hippo; Norma Boone of Greenwich, Ohio, Augusta Prater of Mt. Sterling; one brother, Martin Bailey of Zebulon; one sister, Virgie Warmbrod of Algie, Ohio; 22 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren, nine great-great-grandchildren. Funeral services were conducted Sunday, May 21, 3:30 p.m., at Hall Funeral Home Chapel, Martin, with Rondal Hayes officiating. Burial was in the Frasure Cemetery, Hueysville, under the direction of Hall Funeral Home. Serving as pallbearers were sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons. (Floyd County Times Obituary)

Note: Her obituary has her buried in the Frasure Cemetery, but there is a shared headstone with her husband, Oits, in this cemetery.

Later note: I can take a guess at the confusion about Prater cemetery versus the Frasure cemetery (regarding Katie Baily Prater burial site). My mom's branch of Praters in Floyd county are buried at the top of the hill on land that was owned by Dan Prater, b 1878. One of his daughters, Eva Prater, married a man named Earl Frasure, and I believe they lived at the foot of that hill. So in a sense, it may be also referred to as Frasure cemetery, although it is almost all Prater interments. (Great grandson, Dan Skidmore)
