I was looking into the William Berdell Prettyman's (1877-1942) death certificate that shows his father as Cord Hill Prettyman and his mother as Alice Orr.
Your right that this does not sound right. I have the following family and was wondering what you think.
Cord (Hill) Prettyman b. 1854 Marion County, Oh. d. 9/21/1898 Kenton, Hardin County, Oh. He married (1)Annie Bell Briggs on 10/12/1878 in Marion County by JP EP Turner. Annie was b.1858 Big Island, Marion County, Ohio d. 1880-1889 Marion County, Ohio
They had 2 children that I am aware of: Arty Prettyman 1879New Bloomington, Marion County, Ohio Nancy Jane Prettyman 1/30/1880 LaRue, Hardin County, Ohio and d. 29 Jul 1935Marion, Marion County, Ohio She married William Oscar Severns on 10/21/1899 Marion County, Ohio. Together they had 6 children: Cecil L.; Gladys Leora; Alfreda; Ruth E.; Evelyn Faye; and William Miles.
Cord (Hill) Prettyman married (2) Maria (Mrs.) E. Dutton b. 1847 and d. 10 Dec 1920 Marion Co., Ohioon 04 Oct 1890 in Marion County, Ohioby JP EP Turner.
I found the 2 marriages in the Marion County Marriage Record Books.
