George Washington Pruitt (born 1828) and Susie Lucas were the parents of Luther Pruitt (husband of Josephine Lucas). They are mentioned in his death record. I am having trouble finding further information about either parent.

"Illinois Deaths and Stillbirths, 1916-1947," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N3WM-43D : 27 December 2014), Geo. W. Pruitt in entry for Luther Pruitt, 29 Aug 1942; Public Board of Health, Archives, Springfield; FHL microfilm 1,851,928.

Definitley could be him. Perhaps he was an orphan.
Looking at the census a little closer, I noticed that Booker Prewett (female) is 38, while the others are 15 and younger. What are the odds that Booker is the mom and she was widowed? And I have the current "parents" completely wrong?

information in it.

his mother is listed as Susan Pruitt.That 1880 Census,Hudsonville.

Breckinbride,Kentucky,4 cousins including Luther,staying with William

Meador.

Edited:

Susan and George are both mentioned in the census. I assume they are siblings (along with Luther). Could Booker be their mom?
