|Currently, this Website contains an InterneTree of my Direct Ancestors , an OUTLINE of Archibald Prater descendants. It used to contain a descendant genealogy report, with extensive notes,for Archibald Prater and Sarah Fugate Prater. Because so many people are concerned about identity theft, I've removed the existing database.If you are interested in talking about this Prater lineage...please feel free to contact me via email |
Archibald was born about 1755 in VA, and Sarah was born 26 Jul 1763 also in VA. This couple was married 11 Aug 1783, and lived in Floyd/Magoffin County Kentucky. Who Archibald's parents are is a topic of considerable controversy and research, and theyremain unidentified. It is certain he descends from Thomas Prater, the original immigrant. Archibald's granddaughter Sarah, daughter of William B. Prater and Nancy Cope, married William Wells .. they were parents to 13 children, and emigrated ca 1853 from KYto Coles Co., IL.I'd love to hear from ILLINOIS researchers!
On my mother's side of the lineage, I am also researching many Rowan and Cabarrus Co, NC surnames. From time to time, I will be adding more reports. You may also want to visit my AOL homepage with links to more reports on various ancestors.
