Daughter of Isaac and Susannah Evans Alldredge.

Married Jonathan Burgess Pratt 23 Nov 1892 at Manti.

The following information was contributed by Tonie Alldredge Miller:

Emma Alldredge, the fourth child of Susanah Evans and Isaac Alldredge, Jr. was born in Lehi, Utah, 31 August 1876. She moved with her family to Deseret, Utah, 8 September 1881. Her family lived in a small log house on a farm. The children slept on trundle beds which could be pushed under the large beds when not in use. The Alldredge family moved to Hinckley, Utah. Her father made adobe bricks for a three-room house. All the family had to help with the chores, such as helping with the housework, cooking and sewing. After the noon meal was over, carpet rags were torn and stitched. The children could then play until time to fix supper.

Emma was married to Jonathan Burgess Pratt 23 November 1892. To this marriage was born the following: Nina, William Burgess, Zella, Elizabeth, Jonathan Isaac, Avelin and Vaunda.

Her daughter, Nina Jacobs, writes of her as follows:
Mother was a beautiful, happy and loving woman. She read, sang, played games and helped us with our homework, and she always had us say our prayers before going to bed. She was a very good cook and homemaker. The house was always clean and orderly. She made all our clothes, which were very attractive.

On Sundays and on holidays, she had a nice dinner and we could invite our friends, if we wished to do so. She worked in the church as Relief Society Teacher, sang in the choir and she and father took us to church every Sunday. She had many friends and would help anyone in need. She died in Provo 22 March 1907 in the hospital while giving birth to twins, who were stillborn. Father looked like he was in a trance. It was a sad day for all of us.

She left six children; Vaunda, the youngest, was only one-and-a-half years old. Grandmother Pratt, father's mother, took the children and made a home for us until her health failed several years later.
