This is not the Joseph Pritchard of Ky who moved his family to Missouri in the 1800's, but I believe they are kin.  Joseph and Elizabeth Hannan married in Botetourt, VA, in 1830's; all their children, including my husband's great grandfather John Spencer (Jack) Pritchard, were born in VA, but the family moved sometime prior to 1860 go Grainger County, TN.  Joseph fought in the Civil War; he died about 1866.

Hm. Coincidentally, I did a little work on some Pritchards this morning. I wonder if yours could have been slave-holders? Mine were African Americans living in Ohio. That was a common migration pattern either for enslaved persons who had been manumitted from Virginia. Ohio was a free state. I might have to stalk you.
