Margaret, You are correct. I have come across James Prichard as John's father but nothing further than that. I also saw your post on Prichard cemetery and am very interested if you can give me details of how to get there from Hamburg. I'll be there in the spring and would like to transcribe the headstones that are still there. Also you mentioned that you had headstone photos, I'd be most greatful is you would be willing to share those with me.
