Bob G,
  I would be interested in your Pruitt information. With dna, we have connected with the Pruitt who was here in 1640 but I am still trying to figure out the lines of descent. We have a few Alexanders in the line. To date I have traced them back to about 1797 in South Carolina where David or Davis Pruett (my ggg-grandfather) would have been born. His son, Joseph B. Prewett (my gg-grandfather) was born about 1823, I believe, in Georgia and his son Davis Marion, born about 1855 (my g-grandfather) also born in Georgia. They moved to Alabama between 1855 and 1860 to Blount County. When Cullman County was formed in the 1880's. I believe it incorporated the portion of Blount County where they had been living. My grandfather, Burl C. Pruett, was born 1893 in Cullman County, Alabama.

Joseph B. Pruett is buried in Heflin Cemetery, Moulton, Lawrence County, Alabama. A couple of years ago, a CSA commemorative stone was placed at his grave site.

These men were small in size with blond hair and blue eyes. Could you send me your information as a pdf file.

 For anyone descended from Davis Pruett, Joseph Pruett, etc. there is a family reunion held every year in Cullman County, Alabama.

 Bob G.,

  I can't get my Pruitt line past 1822. I'd be interested in receiving a copy  of the picture. Would you mind sending it to me?

 Thanks,

Hi, my name is Bobby G. Pruitt,son of Marshall Wyllie Pruitt, grandson of  Wylie Pinckney Pruitt, great grandson of Alexander Pruitt.

I have a Willie Pruitt in my fathers family.I also have a picture of him. He  was a small man, like my father and his brothers.
If you will give me a few days I will scan it and send it by email. I
will need your email address.

By the way I had the Pruitt's back to 1640. So We have been in the country a  long time.

I have long been looking for the family of John Prewitt whose will was filed in Barren Co, KY in 1818. He named wife, Sarah "Sally" Prewitt, and children George, John, Elizabeth, Sarah, and Nancy. Does anyone know of a connection between this John Prewitt and the Abraham in Debbi's post? If not, does anyone know anything else about this John Prewitt/Pruitt? Thanks, Mike Vance Abraham Pruitt born 1763 in Rowan Co NC; died about 1784/1786 at Pruitt's Knob in Barren Co KY (another source says died 1793); married Margaret Dividson by whom he had four children (John, William, Monoah and an unknown female). Does anyone out there know anymore about Wm. Pruitt b. ca 1760 Halifax Co. VA, son of Thomas. Wm. served in Rev. War as a substitute for his father from Spartanburg Co. SC. I think this is the same Wm. who shows up in 1840 Bradley Co. TN census and then dies August 1849 in Meigs Co. TN. Was his son John who m. Elizabeth tucker in Jefferson Co. TN? John and Elizabeth were also in Bradley Co. TN in 1840 and 1850. I think they had a son, also a William b. 1814 who m. Hannah Caroline Collins in Monroe Co. TN in 1836.[my gg grandparents]. From family stories this William [b.1814] was born "at the foot of Clingman's Dome." Does any thing here ring any bells???

As far as I know (not terribly far ), that family was in VA and SC, but not NC. And I don't show a Hamilton as a brother for William. He only has 5 brothers and sisters, however, which doesn't seem like that many for that time period, so who knows? The ones I have are Alexander, Samuel, Daniel, Rosanna, and Sarah. The only one I have any more info on is Alexander (m. Frances Palmer; kids: Thomas, Martha, Nancy, Obediah, Frances, William, Lucinda, Hannah and Elizabeth).
