I'm looking for the parentage of a Jacob Pratt who m. Hannah Polley. I have the intestate probate of a Jacob Pratt JR.who d. bef. O 10 1828 in Milburn. Hannah Pratt is head of house w/2 kids under 5 in Milburn 1830, remarried D 1834 so this probate looks like her husband. Don't know if this Jacob Pratt JR is the son of Jacob or the younger of 2, poss. unrelated, Jacob Pratts in the area. On the possibility that Jacob is JR in our sense of the word, I was wondering if the Jacob & Anna Pratt in Canaan had a son named Jacob.
Yup, I saw the reference in Coburn (p.669) of land passage to Thomas L, son of Jacob, who m. Elvira Pratt & Ann Foss.
Thank you so much, Kathleen, for the hint that Jacob (who m. Anna) was an 1812 vet. I will pursue the idea that there may be a pension paper for him. Thanx, too, for the xtra tidbits re Micha & Jacob's resting spots. If the bridge holds, I can use them.
