I am a Prather. My people came from KS & MO. I am 2nd generation of Washington Prathers, maybe 3rd). We are white.
My lineage is: G. Stanley Prather (b. 1919, d. 2006, who was an only child) George Lewis Prather, (b. ?, d. 1959 - married Ruby Barnhart), Millard Prather (don't know b/d dates)
Does any of this help you with your Prather search?
