This is my story and is therefore copyrighted so don't take and publish it on Ancestry or other website as your own material.

Celestia was the daughter of Ebenezer & Sarah/Sally(Aldrich) Pratt.
No one seems to know where Celestia's mother is buried but she must be in Clarksburg, MA or Stamford,VT.

Ebenezer & Sarah's youngest son, John A. was born 3/1816 in Clarksburg, MA. Sarah died age 32, in 1818 when John was 2 yrs old.
Ebenezer married his 2nd wife, Lydia Aldrich in June of 1818 and both were of Clarksburg, MA.

I am not certain the year Celestia was born but was in the very early 1800s bet. 1810 & 1813. There were 2 children born to Ebenezer & Sarah in 1809 & 1814. Her daughter's obit said she was 79 when Jane died which would make Celestia born 1807 & therefore older than her sister, Mary.

Celestia married Thomas Adams 17 Feb 1831 in Pownal, VT.
They had 2 children; Jane & Thomas H.

(there's an error in obit..she was an Adams not a Roberts)

Williamsburg Journal Tribune July 22, 1897 page 4
Mrs. Roberts, grandmother of Thos. Roberts of Pilot township, and William Roberts of this city, died at the home of the former June 30th, aged about 96 years. The funeral services were held at the M.P. church Thursday conducted by Rev. Kirkwood.
Looks like 89 yrs 5mos 28 days= about Jan 24,1808
Now I need are her mother and stepmother.
