NOTE by William Holder: [2]
[On a Revolutionary War Pension Application], "Susannah Hubbard of Pickens District, aged 89 years, states she was married to Philip Prater who was a Private in the Militia of South Carolina during the Revolutionary war and he served under Capt Maxwell and either Col Pickens or Anderson or Both. She has heard of him talking of such matters. She had a hard time hiding and dodging from the Tories and the British [during the War]."
"Philip moved with his parents and siblings to North Carolina between 1756 and 1760. They lived in Orange Co., North Carolina, about four years 1761-1765. Orange Co. at that time included parts of several counties of central North Carolina. Guilford and Rowan Counties were part of Orange Co. at the time until 1771.
"Philip married Susanna Hubbard on July 16, 1776, in Guilford Co., North Carolina. Soon after their marrage they moved to Laurens County, Ninety Six District North Carolina..." [sic - Laurens County is in SOUTH Carolina - Chet Snow, 1/27/2014]
"They had three children before the Revolutionary war: John Prater, Philip J Prater, and Sarah "Sally" Prater. Phillip served as a Private for 8 months and 12 days in a company of Laurens County militia, comanded by Capt Robert Maxwell, according to a statement given by Susan; she and the children had to hide from the Tory [British sympathizers] and British [troops]."
"After the war they moved to Pickens Co, Pendleton District South Carolina. They had the following children after the war: Thomas Prather, Mary Ann"Polly" Prater, William M Prater, Jeremiah Prater, Aron Prater, Josiah Prater and Joseph Prater.

Susannah (Hubbard) Prather lived to be 93 years old. She died on August 9, 1848, in Pickens Co., South Carolina, USA.
