It looks like in 1910 Evert & his mother were living with his grandfather. His mom had remarried:

This might be his father in 1880:

Here is a marriage that might belong to Thomas' parents:

Name:        J T Prather        
Spouse Name:        C A Collins
Marriage Date:        Mar 13 1876

According to a tree on ancestry, Thomas Robert Prather was the son of James Thomas Prather (1825-1879) & Cynthia Ann Tevebaugh Collins (1849-aft 1890). James Thomas Prather was married several times: 1)Mary Ellen Steen abt 1850 2)Nancy Jane Hawkins 15 Mar 1857 and 3) Cynthia Ann Collins and had many children. I cannot verify the family tree info, however there is a Pedigree file for James Thomas Prather here: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.2.1/3MQF-T7K

Hope this helps. Annie
