Searching For J. W. Pruitt "Jim Will" born Oct. 18th, 1855 died Oct. 29th, 1918 Miller Co., AR per 1900 Census, Polk Co. TX Census J. W. states he was born in Texas, His father was born in MS, and his mother was born in Texas. This may or may not be so. At this time I still do not know the names of g-grandfather J. W. Pruitt parents or siblings. So I looking for Mississippi roots and hoping some Pruitt cousin out there is looking for a Uncle J. W. Pruitt.......

I know that J. W. was in Van Zandt Co., TX in 1885 where he married Rachel Elizabeth "Lizzie" Ramsey.

Thanks in advance for any information. Please email Linda Miles at
