Looking for any information on Leonard Harrison Prather from Orleans, Orange County, Indiana, born circa 1890. Mother was Rachel F. Prather (after 2nd marriage name was Brooks), father has several possible first names: O.M., Oliver or Martin or Mortin Prather. Parents were 2nd cousins. Leonard is not listed on any census data, he was assigned to Ft. Riley, Geary County, KS when he met my grandmother, Ida Mabel Daniels. I have been unable to locate a military record. They were married at Troy, Doniphan County, Kansas, 24 Nov 1908 and made their home in the St. Joseph, Buchanan County, Missouri area. Leonard died 14 Nov 1948 on their farm in Industrial City and is buried in St. Joseph, MO. Known siblings were Lloyd Prather and Doris Prather Roberts all born in Indiana.
Leonard had 10 children (9 girls and 1 boy)So if anyone else has any clues, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks!
