Family researcher seeks information on Pratts

I believe that I might have relatives living in your area that might be able to assist me with some genealogy research.

I have hit a brick wall and cannot go any further without this information.  My ancestors were the Pratts and they lived in your county and surrounding areas.

I am searching for William Pratt’s date of death. He died in Mississippi (a BVS search has been done).

Also, I need the names of William Pratt’s parents. William Pratt was born about 1851 in Georgia.

During 1880 William Pratt and his wife Adda (maiden name unknown) along with their two children Saphronia Pratt Wagoner (1876-1953) and Jephtha (Jeff) Pratt lived in Longtown, Panola County, Mississippi.

If you know of someone who is doing this research, please have them contact me.
It is believed that there might be a veterinarian in your area with access to an old family bible that would answer so many questions for me. I would appreciate so much if he would contact me or if someone would let me know his name and telephone number.
