John: When you get the time, and to make ssure we are talking about the same people, my Great Grandfather, Daniel Thomas Prall, was b. 8/25/1839, Indiana (i think) and died 3/27/1881, in the Loup River, near Brayton, NE.His body was never recovered.He married Eliza Marinda Prather, 8/16/1860, unknown location.They were the parents of 8 children.
The 4 June 1880 census of Greeley Co, NE, says both his parents were b. in PA.
Eliza was b. 3/9/1841, Clark Co., Indiana and died 8/30/1897, Rice Co., KS, and is buried in Lodiana Cem., near Saxman, KS, which is about 30 miles from my home.
According to the 4 June 1880, Greeley Co., NE census, both her parents were b. in "Carolina".It did not say NC or SC.
From what I have been able to find, I THINK perhaps her parents were Aaron Prather and Elizabeth Patrick, but this is not set in concrete!
Any help you can give will be most appreciated.THANK YOU!
