Full Circle 97

This is a Full Circle made possible by Iggy and his tireless research!  He contacted Kathie at Find A Grave.  Her husband is a relative of Earl Pratt.

This is Earl Wells Pratt (Dec. 15, 1881 in Iowa - 1948), the son of Stephen S Pratt (1850 - 1926) and Nina Delano (1857 - 1934).
Earl married Alma Topp (1886 - 1945) and is Find A Grave Memorial# 22401571.
The 1900 US census shows him living with his parents in Hudson, Douglas, Minnesota which is about ten miles from Alexandria, MN.

Iggy sent an email to Kathie.  Then I emailed her.

Hi Connie,

Thank you so much for taking care of all these photos. I also will purchase photos and try to reconnect them with family. I guess it just goes to show that everything goes full circle and comes back to you :)


I sent off the photo.

I didn’t hear anything for a long time…so I emailed Kathie and she replied on October 19, 2014.

Hi Connie,

It arrived safe and sound, thank you so much. I was out of town for a few days and I have my grand daughter this weekend, otherwise I would have thanked you earlier. I just pulled out my Pratt binder and am hoping to get you a little info on him. Give me a day or two and I will see what I can find. Again, thank you so much for reuniting this photo with me!


I will add more information as it becomes available. 

Thanks for stopping by.
