      Archibald PRATER:
      Born 1755, Halifax Co., Virginia
      Died Wednesday 10 August 1831, Floyd Co., Kentucky
      From Gary B. Prather
      re: possible siblings of Archibald:
      John (Jonathan) PRATER/PRATHER - definitely his brother; William PRATER/PRATHER; Thomas PRATER/PRATHER; Nehemiah PRATER/PRATHER; Glatha PRATER/PRATHER; Sarah PRATER/PRATHER There was also a William Prater & family. I am not sure at this time where he fits in. (LMcK) MAGOFFIN, KY Enum. Dist. 126 Reel 431 Page 640 Date: 06/05 -- PRATER, WILLIAM W M 28 Head M Kentucky Kentucky Kentucky PRATER, REBECCA J W F 26 Wife M Kentucky Kentucky Kentucky PRATER, MARY C W F 9 Child S Kentucky Kentucky Kentucky PRATER, FRANKLIN W M 8 Child S Kentucky Kentucky Kentucky PRATER, CHARLES L W M 6 Child S Kentucky Kentucky Kentucky The name of Archibald Prater was on the personal property tax list of Russell Co, VA, as late as 1799. According to the 1850 census of Floyd Co, his daughter Nancy was born in Va. about 1802 and his daughter Celia was born in KY in 1807. Therefore the family must have moved from KY. to Va. between 1802 and 1807. The family of Archibald Prater was enumerated in the 1810 Census of Floyd Co. Also present in the county was Sarah Allen, the widow of Samuel Allen. William Allen, born ca 1783 in Patrick Co Va, son of Sarah and Samuel Allen, died in Breathitt Co in 1854. James W. Prater, who moved from Tazewell Co VA to Morgan Co, KY sometime during the period 1840 - 1850, died in Morgan Co in 1855. His death records show he was born ca 1782 in Tazewell Co, VA son of Jonathan and Elizabeth Prater. Archibald Prater died in Floyd Co ca 1831. His will, which is now missing from the court house files, was proved in Floyd Co Court 15 August 1831. In Jan 1832, Lewis Power, Archibald's son-in-law, was made administrator of the estate. In Feb 1834, Floyd Co Deed Book C, Page 427, the other heirs of Archibald sold land to Lewis Power: "John Prater, William Prater, Thomas Prater, Elijah Prater, Archibald Prater, Sally P. Simore or Sizemore or P'Siner, William Patrick, Hugh Patrick, and David M. Cooper of the Counties of Morgan, Floyd, and Nicholas, Kentucky To Lewis Power." The body of the deed mentions "the heirs of James Prater, deceased." The following information comes from Peggy Sue Wilson and her sources: From the Journal of the Magoffin County Historical Society Vol. 1 Sept. 1979 No. 3 FAMILY OF ARCHIBALD PRATER OF FLOYD COUNTY Contributed by Martha Heinemann 705 N. Belverdere Memphis, TN 38107-5029 Many articles have been written about Archibald and Sarah Fugate Prater and their descendants. None have contained records of the Praters in Virginia although they lived there for 47 years. Public records which must be searched in order to trace the family of Archibald Prater are located in six Virginia counties, Halifax, Pittsylvania, Henry, Chesterfield, Washington, and Russell. Evidence collected so far indicates that Archibald Prater moved his residence only once - from the vicinity of Patrick and Henry Counties, Virginia, to the area which is now Tazewell County, Virginia. In 1755 when Archibald was born, Halifax County was very large. In 1766 Pittsylvania County was cut off from it. Then in 1776 Henry County was formed from part of Pittsylvania. Still later after the Praters had left the area, Patrick County was created from part of Henry. Washington County was also quite large at one time. In 1787 Russell County as formed from part of Washington, and in 1799 Tazewell County was created from the northern part of Russell. I have included references to the Allen, Musick, and Fugate families because they migrated westward along the same route and intermarried with the Praters. Names are spelled as they were found in the individual records. Archibald Prater, pioneer settler of Floyd County, resided near Salyersville in present-day Magoffin County. His wife was Sarah Fugate, daughter of Josiah and Elizabeth Fugate. Proof of Sarah's parents may be found in Floyd County, KY Deed book C, 413, and in the will of Josiah Fu

      have been Nehemiah. His name was sometimes written "Miah."). 1780 - Nehemiah, Jonathan, William, Ninian, and Archibald Prater. During the period the names of Samuel Allen and Elexious Musick were on the lists. In Henry Co marriage records is the marriage of Sarah Prater to Simon [actually Samuel] Allen 17 Sept 1783. Soon after Archibald Prater was discharged from the service, He moved to Washington Co Va, settling in an area which is now Tazewell Co. This is proved by a land survey recorded in Russell Co. Elexious Musick entered 153 3/4 acres of land in Washington Co by warrant dated 1782. The land later lay in Russell Co and finally in Tazewell Co as these counties were established. The 1782 description of the land says that the property extended "to the line of Arch Prater." The property was located near Ceder Bluff in Present day Tazewell Co, Va. A 1783 survey of land in Washington Co shows that Johnathan Preter acquired 110 acres on the North Fork of the Clinch River. Marriage records of Washington County include these: Thomas Prater to Millie Wheeler 27 May 1778 and William Prator to Elizabeth Fuget 26 April 1785. A 1785 Washington Co petition asking that Russell Co be formed bore the signatures Josiah, James, John, Coleby, and Zachariah Fugate; Arch, Jonathan, Thomas, and William Prater; and Elexious Musick. After Russell Co established, the names of the Praters and related families appeared there. The 1787 personal property tax list for the upper district contained the names of James, Josiah and Randolph Fugate and Arch, Jonathan, and William Prater. In 1792 Jonathan Prater's name was on the Russell Co land tax list. The entry said "Jonathan Prater, assignee of E. Musick, 100 acres." The Russell Co Court Order Book for this period confirms that Jonathan Prater died in 1795. In 1795 Samuel Allen appeared in Russell Co. He was one of the signers asking that Tazewell Co be formed from part of Russell. The name of Archibald Prater was on the personal property tax list of Russell Co, Va, as late as 1799. According to the 1850 census of Floyd Co, his daughter Nancy was born in Va. about 1802 and his daughter Celia was born in KY in 1807. Therefore the family must have moved from KY. to Va. between 1802 and 1807. The family of Archibald Prater was enumerated in the 1810 Census of Floyd Co. Also present in the county was Sarah Allen, the widow of Samuel Allen. William Allen, born ca 1783 in Patrick Co Va, son of Sarah and Samuel Allen, died in Breathitt Co in 1854. James W. Prater, who moved from Tazewell Co VA to Morgan Co, KY sometime during the period 1840 - 1850, died in Morgan Co in 1855. His death records show he was born ca 1782 in Tazewell Co, VA son of Jonathan and Elizabeth Prater. Archibald Prater died in Floyd Co ca 1831. His will, which is now missing from the court house files, was proved in Floyd Co Court 15 August 1831. In Jan 1832, Lewis Power, Archibald's son-in-law, was made administrator of the estate. In Feb 1834, Floyd Co Deed Book C, Page 427, the other heirs of Archibald sold land to Lewis Power: "John Prater, William Prater, Thomas Prater, Elijah Prater, Archibald Prater, Sally P. Simore or Sizemore or P'Siner, William Patrick, Hugh Patrick, and David M. Cooper of the Counties of Morgan, Floyd, and Nicholas, Kentucky To Lewis Power." The body of the deed mentions "the heirs of James Prater, deceased. In Floyd and Pike Counties there are Praters who are not descendants of Archibald Prater. We suspect, but cannot prove, that some of these people are descendants of Jonathan Prater, who was born in 1758 and died in 1795. Others may be descended from William and Thomas Prater who were in Washington Co, VA about 1785.

      livestock died, moved the family to Floyd Co, KY. They built a house and planted crops. Sarah and the other children remained in Nicholas Co. The men did so well in Floyd Co. that the next year Sarah and the rest of the children went back with them. They enlarged their house and spent the remainder of their lives there. Collins History of KY p. 536: Magoffin Co KY was first settled about 1800 by emigrants Archibald Prather, John Williams, Clayton Cook, Ebenezer Hannah and a few others. Some of them attempted the settlement in 1794 but were driven back by Indians. KY Encyclopedia p. 795: Situated on the upper part of the Licking River, Salyersville was the site of a pioneer station known as "Praters Fort" and "Licking Station".
