Need info on Pratt's of eastern Ky

+1 vote
I'm looking for info on my great grandmother Dora Ellen Pratt b 1879 in Knott or Letcher Co Ky. I do not know who her parents where but her grandparents where Henry Pratt b 1809 in Culpeper Va and Celia Hampton . Henry,s father was James Pratt  b1674 Culpeper Va and died 1854 in Carter Co Ky.  Dora Ellen is only listed on the 1880 (she is 1) census with her grandparents. Both of them die in 1886 & there is no 1890 census. In 1900 she is living with the Adams family as a boarder. . She married Jonathan Combs of Knott Co Ky in 1903.  Any info on these Pratt's or Combs families of Eastern Ky would be great. Jan Hendrixson

Hi Jan, I guess we are related. Dora Ellen Pratt was my great grandmother as well. I have her date of birth as April 16, 1879 but no death date. I have her mother as Elizabeth (Pratt) Amburgey who was married to a Fielden Amburgey, whom I assume from my fathers stories was her step-dad. So, I'm not sure who her birth father was and I'm not sure if her mother is the daughter of Henry and Delia (Hampton) Pratt. It has been very hard to find any information on her as it seems she just appeared. I saw one time in a cenus that she live as a boarder with a family in Knott County.I hope this helps a little bit. If you find out anything else please let me know.  A cousin....Danny Watts
