My Ancestors

This is only the fist three generation of my ancestors, that I have investigated and proven that this is how they connect together.

Descendants of Hardin Prewitt/Pruett and Mary Louise Lawson

Generation No. 1

1. HARDIN1 PREWITT/PRUETT was born 1795 in Tennessee, and died Bef. November 05, 1865 in Texas County, Missouri (Source: Texas County Court Records, Vol. 4, 54, It is ordered by the court that the estate of Harden Prewitt, dec. be placed into the hands of a P.A.---05 Nov, 1865.). He married MARY LOUISE LAWSON, daughter of RANDOLPH LAWSON and SUSANNAH CROSS. She was born 1797 in Tennessee, and died 1850 in Texas County, Missouri.

Notes for HARDIN PREWITT/PRUETT:

His family was among the first to settle down the Clinch and Holston Rivers of western Virginia and east Tennessee.

By 1830, Hardin is recorded as having land and a sizeable family in Campbell County, Tennessee. His close neighbors there were David, Elisha, Maxwell, Randolph and Mary Lawson. Robert Lawson and his wife were living with his family and because of their advanced age, they quite likely were his in-laws. The Lawson's of Dent County, Missouri moved there from Tennessee concurrently with the Pruett's between 1834 and 1840. Many of their descendants still reside in Dent and the surrounding counties.
(Found this information in the Ozark Heritage, Dent County, Salem, Missouri, Volume One, 1978. Published by the Dent County Historical Society, Salem, Missouri.)

Came to Missouri in 1839 and was listed on the 1840 Federal Census for Ripley County, Missouri. Then was listed on the 1850 Federal Census for Reynolds County, Missouri.

Hardin Pruett's will was probated in 1865 in Licking, Texas County, Missouri. He may be berried in Licking or possibly in the Montauk State Park in Shannon County, Missouri.

The following article was found in the Ozark Heritage Vol. 1, page 434, Harden and Mary Pruett

The earliest known record of the Pruett family name appears far back in history. Some of the spelling variations are: Pruett, Pruette, Pruitt, Prue, Pruet, Pruit, Prewit, Prewet, Prewitt, Prewett, Prout, Prouett, etc. Such variations are quite ordinary since most people did not write their own names in the old days -- they told them to recorders, tax collectors, census enumerators, etc., who proceeded to write them as they heard it. Only since the majority of people have learned to read and write have name spellings become standardized. "Prue" seems to be the very oldest recording for it appears as an Old English name of French derivation in early English land records, this in the 13th and 14th centuries. No direct lineage can be traced to that record at this time, however in the book "Early Virginia Immigrants", by G. C. Greer, one "Thomas Prewitt", an immigrant, was sponsored in Charles River County, Virginia in 1636. Also, according to "The Huguenot", 1926, Vol 2, page 15, "Roger and Mary Pruett" settled in Manakintown, Virginia in 1699. They came to Virginia with at least three of their sons, from the Alsace Lorraine region of France as Huguenot (French Protestant) refugees. It is fairly certain by their family movements, that the Pruett's of Tennessee, Kentucky and southeastern Missouri descend from Roger and Mary.

Pruett family members took active part in the Indian Wars, the Revolution, and the War of 1812. The family spread from Virginia into North Carolina and by 1800 into Kentucky and Tennessee. By 1830, Hardin is recorded as having land and a sizeable family in Campbell County, Tennessee. His close neighbors there were David, Elisha, Maxwell, Randolph and Mary Lawson, Robert Lawson and his wife were living with Hardin's family and because of their advanced age, they quite likely were Hardin's in laws. The Lawson's of Dent County, Missouri moved there from Tennessee concurrently with the Pruett's between 1834 and 1840. Many of their descendents still reside in Dent and surrounding counties.

Hardin Pruett was born in 1795. His wife Mary was born two years later in 1797. Hardin and at least one of his sons and several grandchildren are buried in Salem, Dent County, where they spent most of their lives in the early Missouri pioneering days as farmers.

Hardin and Mary's known children at this writing were: Elijah, b. ca 1820, m. Abigail F. Prock; Elizabeth, b. ca. 1826; George M., b. ca 1828, m. Sarah; Polly, b. ca. 1830; Gilbert, b. ca. 1833, m.
