Mary Pruitt Lincoln County, TN
I am looking for information on Larry Epps and Elizabeth Craton family - their granddaughter, Mary Pruitt.Larry’s daughter, Mahala married James Madison Pruitt.He was the son of John Bradford Pruitt and Mary Hoover.James M Pruett and Mahala Epps died in the 1830’s, leaving three orphans children ( Larry Epps, Susan and Mary).Their grandfather, John B and their uncles, John Henry and Francis Marion Pruett, were assigned their guardians.Later, Mary’s grandfather, Larry Epps in Lincoln County, was assigned her guardian. James and Mahala are buried in the Pruett Cemetery at Millersburg.
Larry Epps Prewitt served in the War with Mexico 1847.He married Harriet Brothers at Millersburg in Rutherford County, TN.Susan married a Parker in Bedford County, TN.They move to TX.During the Civil War BF Hankin and Mary Pruett took out a license to be married but no preacher’s return.I think they were married since her uncle made a settlement in her grandfather’s estate as Mary Hankins.
Any information on the Epps - Pruett family would be appreciated.Also, Mary Pruett’s aunt Jemima Prewitt married a Craton.Does anyone know about this family.It is assumed that he was a brother to Elizabeth Craton.John Fults
