Edwin L Pratt was the son of Felicia (Thelma) Hilinski and Edwin L Pratt. Born in Erie, PA but after he got out of the Navy in WWII lived in NYC and played the trumpet, and then moved around the country. Some possibilites where he COULD have lived from what I have heard so far is Nevada, Montana, Alaska, California. Really could have been anywhere in the US. If you can provide any information to put our minds at ease, please contact me. Thank you very much. It would be greatly appreciated.
PS There is a guy from Kansas with the same name, close to his age who keeps coming up when I search and it is NOT him.
