(Note: His daughter, Lavern G. Pratt, age 16, single is living with her g randparents, Orlon Graham. Pratt and Amy Williamson Pratt, and is liste d with them in the 1930 census. The 1930 census says that Lavern and he r parents were born in Utah. (she was born about 1914). That brings up t he question of why she was living with her grandparents and had the othe r children been farmed out also? I cannot find the other children canno t be found in the1930 census.
