Jared PRATT Family Association
Hundreds of photos, and many histories, including journal entries, letters, biographies, articles by/about Pratts during the 1800's and early 1900's. The Jared Pratt Family Association, founded in 1881, is one of the oldest family history organizations in the nation. Jared Pratt (1769-1839) was the father of one daughter and five sons--Anson, William, Parley, Orson and Nelson--four of whom joined the early Mormon Church. One of these sons, Orson Pratt, founded the association in order to engage in ancestral research, as well as to keep track of the Pratt descendants. Of an estimated 60,000 descendants of Jared Pratt, the family organization has identified and computerized nearly 30,000.
