The goal of this project is to find Lydia Pratt-Ireland's maiden name
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Allyn Pratt.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- where was Lydia from, Stae/County/town?
- who was Lydia's father?
- When did Lydia marry Stephen Pratt (b: 1786, Cummington, Mass.)
I am searching for my 5th g.mother's maiden name. Lydia Pratt-Ireland was married to Stephen Pratt Jr. (b:1786). The 1820 Federal Census shows them living in Ohio at New Haven (along with Stephen's brothers Daniel and Clarke). This Census showed that Stephen and Lydia had three young sons. Two of the sons were Clark and Hiram, the third son must have passed early as I can find no record of his name. I believe Stephen and Lydia were married in (upstate) New York, near Ft. Union?, about 1811? (Clark was born in New York in June 1812). My speculation is that Lydia was a cousin of Stephen's. An ASA Pratt was living in the Ft. Union, NY area at this time. Asa did have a daughter named Lydia? Please share any information you may have. Also, I am searching for my Pratt ancestors. I have documented my ancestors to Stephen Pratt (b:1760). I believe that Samuel Pratt (b:1737) is the father of Stephen Pratt. If you have documentation that confirms or denies, please share it with me?
Thank you. Allyn Pratt.
