Pruett family reunion

A Pruett family reunion will be held in Rockdale on Sept. 1 (location still to be determined) for descendants of Henry T. Pruett (1822-1912) and William Harvey Pruett (1848-1934).

The family came to Texas from Alabama via Mississippi in the 1850s on a covered wagon train. This will be the first family reunion since 1955.

Henry T. Pruett had 9 children: James, William, Daniel ( Thomas), Henry, John, Sarah (Sally) Simmons, Elaine (Ella) Simmons, Mary Jane Moses, and the youngest, Thomas. The boys spread out to different parts of Texas.
