I am researching information on the ancesters of Lark Thomas PRATHER and Elson (Elsie) May MARQUIS.
Lark was born approximately 1847-1852 in Pulaski/Wayne County, KY. By 1871, he was married to Bettie Walden and they were living in Saline County, MO, where they had a daughter that year, Emma Autilie.

By 1911, Lark was a physician and surgeon and was living in Clifton City, MO. He was married to Elson (Elsie) May Marquis by that time and they had a son, Earl (Cosner) Prather in 1911.

I am almost positive that Elson's father was Dr. Adonijah Cosner (A.C.) Marquis and her mother was Hadassen Eller.

I can connect Lark, however, with no lines from Wayne/Pulaski County, KY. He may have been an orphan.

If you have any information on my grandparents mentioned above, please email me at
