I'm sorry I don't have any more information on your William Pritchett, but he is also my William Pritchett, and I am also tying to find info on the family. My gggrandfather was Jones, Major's brother. I've always wondered where the somewhat unusual first names came from - thanks for the enlightenment. Do you have any more info on the Pritchetts in VA? Was the Head family in VA related to the Tempy Head (dau of James) that Jones married in Gilmer County?
