Edgar was born in Elk River Township in Missouri in 1898 and moved to Deer Park, Spokane, Washington when he was about 3 years old. His mother passed away when he was 3 just after they moved to the Spokane area. Edgar was the second youngest of 12 children and when Elizabeth passed away, most of the children moved in with relatives because the father was not able to take care of all the children. Edgar was a machinist and married my grandmother, Bertha Josie Frazelle in Spokane, Washington on Easter Sunday, 20 April 1919. They only had one child, our mother Frances Evaline Prater who was born in 1922. Edgar and Bertha were divorced when my mother was about 2 years old and Edgar moved to Oregon and then California where he passed away in 1936. He married Marie Zelda Child on 19 May 1925 in Stevenson, Washington. Our mother did not know where her father went until a few years before she passed away.
