  • ID: I8380 View Post-em!
  • _UID: 674250921D7246EEB6B82FC7A3A26BE64857
  • Name: Vernal Franklin PRUITT
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1788 in Goochland Co, Va
  • Death: 1880 in Illinois
  • Note:

    His mother died when he was 4 years old.

    He moved from Mason Co, WV to Jackson, Tennessee and then later to Kinmundy, Illinois

    He has a nephew named Vernal, b 1840 (son of brother Stokes). This makes it very confusing to sort out which is which. His nephew died in Houston, TX.

    His War records say he was from Kinmundy, IL. He was a Union Soldier.

    A list of burials around Alma, IL (Alma twp, Marion Co) includes ?Vernal Prewitt? in the Civil War vet list.

    111th Illinois Infantry:
    Vernal F. Prewitt, Company D - Lone grave in a field near Martin, Tennessee on an old road. (web link no longer works)

    This marriage in Marion Co, IL makes me wonder if it was a son of Vernal?s:
    Wills (Willis?) Prewitt, m Lavina Wyatt 9-14-1865

    There was a John Prewitt who was born in Tennessee abt 1812 and married in Schuyler Co, IL in 1842 to Elizabeth Tucker. Makes me wonder if it was Vernal?s son.

    There were brothers William (1834-1922) and Woodson Pruett who seem to be related to this family. Maybe they were sons of his?
