Searching for info on Calvin Z. PRATT who was born c1778 and died 27 September 1840. He married c1796 Olive CLEMENTS/CLEMONS. Olive was born c1772 and died 2 October 1839. Both are buried in the cemetery on the old Clemons farm on Gould Rd., Whitehall, NY. I don't know the parents of either Calvin or Olive. I thought she might be related in some way to Abraham CLEMONS who lived near them when they lived in Whitehall, Westhaven, and Dresden, but can't find any connection. If they aren't related to Joseph and Jonathan CLEMONS, why are they buried in the same cemetery? Joseph CLEMONS' son Jonathan, Abraham CLEMONS, his sister Nancy HOWARD, and Johanna PRATT are mentioned in the will of Joseph CLEMONS but no relationship is stated. Who is Johanna PRATT? Calvin and Olive PRATT had 10 children and in 1800, were in Whitehall; in 1810, 1820, 1830 in Westhaven; and in 1835 in Dresden. Any help on this family would be appreciated.
