Not my family, but maybe this will help you. Parents names on his DC.

You can view digitized copy of the original DC on FamilySearch site.

I checked Find a Grave site, looked for any Prathers buried in the Johnson Memorial Cemetery and found Omar Chester, probably O.C. father of above Lee Roy. You can view his headstone, and click on links to other family members that take you back to Solomon, father of Omar and so on. You might get in touch with the person who has posted so much on the Prather family and share what you know.
