BIOGRAPHY: JONATHAN PRAT. JR.
of
CULPEPER COUNTY, VIRGINIA
That Jonathan Pratt, Sr. of Orange and Culpeper Counties, Virginia, had a son, Jonathan Pratt, Jr., there is no doubt. This is proved through the deed of gift made by Jonathal1 Sr. to his "affectionate and loving son, Jonathan, Jr." in Culpeper in 1769 when he conveyed 150 acres of his land in Culpeper to fall to Jonathan, Jr. upon the death of  Jonathan, Sr. And upon the death of his father in 1781, or shortly thereafter, Jonathan, Jr. sold this land to Thomas Pratt, his brother. This Jonathan Pratt, Jr. is estimated  to have been the youngest of the three known sons of Jonathan, Sr. and is believed  to have been born about 1745 in Orange County, Virginia. Nothing is known of his mother. At the time Jonathan, Jr. sold his land on 17 October 1781, the deed stated that he was of Montgomery County, Virginia. Searches of deeds, probate records, vital records, tax lists, etc. have shown no reference whatever to a Jonathan Pratt and it is probable that there was either an error in the deed or that he lived there very briefly and. did not leave any records. A Jonathan Pratt was found as a witness to the will of Francis Haile or Bedford County, Virginia dated 5 December 1775, but he was not present to give his oath when the will was probated the 28th of August 1780, suggesting that he may have been living elsewhere at that time. Since James Pratt had moved to Bedford County by 1774 it is possible that his brother, Jonathan, Jr. was also there at that time and was the signer asa.witness to the will of Francis Haile. No further records in Bedford have so far been located that would indicate that a Jonathan Pratt lived in that county, but chances seem great 15 the one who left but one single record in that county might have been the brother of James and son of Jonathan, Sr. of Culpeper. As far as any further record of this Jonathan, Jr. goes, his story would end here. That is UNLESS he can be proved to be Jonathan Pratt who owned land in Henry and Franklin Counties, Virginia, then migrated to Newberry District (Old Ninety-six District when he arrived), and became our ancestor. If such is the case, a connecting tie must be found, and that missing link may be in the persons of Robert Mansell and John Redman, both of whom were connected with the Pratt family in Culpeper County, Virginia.

Jonathan Pratt, according to records left by his grandson, Jonathan Blackmore Pratt, was born about 1745 in Virginia. it is believed that he was Jonathan, Jr. who was the son of Jonathan, Sr. of Orange and Culpeper Counties, Virginia, and if so, would have been born in Orange County, Virginia. Jonathan of Newberry (referred to as such to distinguish him from others of the same name,) if born about 1745, would have been of the proper age to fit into the family of Jonathan, Sr. Jonathan, Sr. of Culpeper County, Virginia (cut from Orange County in 1749) deeded 150 acres of land to his son, Jonathan, Jr. in Culpeper County in 1769. This was not to fall to him until his father's death, which ccurred about April 1781. On 17 October 1781, Jonathan sold this land to his brother, Thomas. Although no absolute proof has thus far been found for this assumption, strong circumstantial evidence suggests that this was the case. Where the records of Jonathan, Jr. of Culpeper seem to end, the records of Jonathan of Newberry seem to pick up. We do know that Jonathan Pratt of Newberry married Elizabeth Hughes, daughter of Blackmore Hughes, probably early in 1770. Blackmore had been found in Hanover County records of Virginia. He was a planter and a builder. Although most of the records of Hanover County have been destroyed, mention has been found of him there from about 1748 until 1763, the last date, when his name appeared on the list of the valuables. By 1778 he had moved to Henry County, Virginia and that year he was appointed tax assessor of that county. He died there in 1786. At what time Blackmore moved his family to Henry County is not 'known, but sometime in the fifteen-year "blackout" (176)-1778) in which no records have been found of him, this move occurred. It is known that four of his children, Blackmore, Jr., George, and John Hughes, and his daughter, Mary, wife of Jesse Abston, lived and owned land in Bedford County, Virginia and all remained there until their deaths except Blackmore, Jr. who moved to Kentucky. Some of these Hughes people have been found in the land records of Bedford as early as 1777, and may have been there earlier than that. It is also relevant that, according to deeds and from studying maps of the county, the Hughes people and James Pratt, son of Jonathan, Sr. of Culpeper, were all in the same general southeastern area of the county, so that it would certainly fall in the realm of possibility for the Pratts and the Hughes families to be acquainted. It would not be impossible, therefore, for this area to have been the setting for the meeting of Jonathan Pratt and Elizabeth Hughes. Even though her parents may not have resided there it would have been entirely logical for her to have been visiting or living with some of her brothers or her sister. It is very possible that this may even have been the location of their marriage. This again is not proved, but it does appear that the opportunity for such was very possible. The first record of Jonathan of Newberry in land records (except those in Culpeper County already discussed, if indeed these two Jonathans were the one and same man) was when Jonathan Pratt of Henry County sold a tract of land containing 79 acres on the 21st day of September 1779 to Humprey Burditt of Pittsylvania County, for 75 pounds. This tract was a part of a patent granted to John Smith dated the 16th of March 1775. There has never been found a record that would show how and when Jonathan Pratt acquired this land, but it is probable that there was an unrecorded deed showing this transaction. When Blackmore Hughes died in August of 1786 he bequeathed to his daughter, Elizabeth Pratt,10 pounds to be raised out of his estate. Later in the will he directs that the land lying at the White Falls on the Smith River be sold and the money be given to his daughter, Elizabeth Pratt. This tract contained 100 acres. It was probably not many months following the death of her father that Elizabeth and Jonathan moved to South Carolina, probably following the sale of his land in 1787. It is always a point of speculation as to why people moved to a particular area. Often a group of relatives and neighbors would migrate together. Sometimes it was because the pioneer who had gone ahead returned with a glowing report, of the wonders of the place, the fertility of the soil, the grass that grew to a man's waist and the clear crystal streams. And others were persuaded to follow. In the case of Jonathan Pratt, it seemed no particular reason could be determined none of the Hughes could be found there; any Pratts found in nearby counties could not be connected to Jonathan Pratt, so the question lingered I What motivated Jonathan Pratt to leave his home in Virginia and move his family to South Carolina? Although Jonathan had arrived in Old Ninety-six District (later called Newberry District and then County) by 1790 when he was enumerated in the 1790 census, the first record of a purchase of land by him in South Carolina was not until the 11th of September 1795 when he bought 100 acres from Richard Mansell. At last a link had been found to connect Jonathan Pratt of Newberry to the Pratts in Culpeper, for whom should Richard Mansell be but the son of Robert Mansell of Culpeper who had been granted the use of a certain piece of land back in Culpeper by Jonathan Pratt, Sr. Three days later, however, Jonathan sold this same land, which was in Camden District, Fairfield County, to Abraham Neeland for forty pounds. Both deeds stated that Jonathan was of the county of Fairfield, Camden District. The next purchase of land on record was dated the 9th of January 1796 when he purchased thirty-five acres of land from Wm Richards of Newberry County, and this deed stated Jonathan was of Newberry County. This land was bounded by Johnson land, which was then land of heirs of William Collins, deceased. Also in the same deed was conveyed a tract of fifty acres adjoining the thirty-five acres, beginning at the mouth of Richard's spring branch and up the branch to a pine on the old original line-then east to a line between William Malone and his son, William Malone, Jr., then north to a branch then follow branch as it meanders back to beginning. Gideon Nelson, a son-in-law of Jonathan was one of the witnesses. Again, on the 5th of May 1796, Jonathan bought from George Johnson of Newberry County, "all that part of his (Johnson's) land in Newberry County on the other side of a certain creek or branch where Widow Collin's line crosses the branch to a branch below line of said Pratt's." Again Gideon Nelson was a witness, as was Sarah Collins. Jonathan continued to acquire land when William Malone, late of Newberry but now of the State of Georgia, granted to Jonathan on the 13th of January 1797 for the sum of fifty pounds, 100 acres of land in Newberry County situated on waters of Enoree River and on a bra.nch called Gosells Creek, bounding on said creek to Um Richard's spring branch on Wm Finch's line, to William Malone, Jr 's land down various courses of said branch to the beginning, including the plantation whereon Wm Malone lived in the 1792. This tract was originally granted to Daniel Johnson and was conveyed to Wm Malone by Johnson in 1779. On the 30th of May 1796 Jonathan Pratt purchased for the price of twenty pounds sterling, a 43 acre tract from James Vardiman and his wife, Jean, which was situated on Heller's Creek and bounded on Widow Coll. – Familysearch.org

Elizabeth HUGHES-9570 was born in 1753 in Orange County, Virginia. She died on 14 Oct 1808 in Newberry, Newberry, South Carolina. Elizabeth married Jonathan PRATT-9569 in 1775 in Virginia.
