They were married in Hall County, Georgia, 14 April, 1842, and before his death in 1877, they had nine children. One of these was Nancy Ann Prater, born 29 December 1857, who married Robert David Mitchell of Hall County. Elizabeth died at Lula Prater Park's home in Johnson Co., Texas, in 1908. After William died, she refused a new set of teeth, I am told, as "people would think she was looking for a husband." Their daughter Nancy Ann is pictured nearby.
