Thank you for the inquiry.
First of all you didn't give me much to go on with your Grandmother's Edith H. (Prather) Davis. It would help to have her birth and death year. With this you could check various census. Also, do not limit your research to only the name PRATHER check PRATER as well.

I checked the name DOA or Daughter of America and could only find Catholic Daughters of America. With you having the information that your grandmother belonged to the Star Spangled Banner Council #7, DOA in Seat Pleasant (MD) district. Don't you have more information???? DOA is not connect with DAR. Daughters of the American Revolution was organized in 1890.

I checked thru the Daughters of the American Revolution Patriots. No daughter joined DAR thru Allen W. Prather as their Patriot. And no daughter joined thru the name of Edith H. Prather or Edith H. Davis.

I viewed the 1910 United States Federal Census and found an Edith H Prather at age 13, estimated birth about 1897. And she was born in IN. Parents Allen L. & Lillie Prather. Their home in 1910 was Election Dist. 18, Prince George's, Maryland. Could this be your grandmother??

PLEASE contact me privately at
I happen to descend thru the PRATER/PRATHER line. Allen Prather is not my line, but I can put you in touch with someone that may have some information.
This is a free lookup service provided by Daughters of the American Revolution Volunteers
