Pratt Family Photo Project
Unknown Descendants of Orson and Sarah Marinda Bates Pratt

The following photos are from the collection of cousin Shirley Hull. They were passed down from Sarah Marinda Bates Pratt through her daughter Celestia Pratt Tyler. Most are unidentified.

Some are of known descendants of Orson and Sarah, particularly in Celestia’s line. Others may be from the family of Celestia’s husband Albert Peter Tyler.

Can you identify the unknown photos below or confirm the IDs we do provide? If so, please let us know! (contact information below).

Orson Pratt.
This photo appears on a spread in the
middle of Shirley’s book with other
known or suspected members of Orson
and Sarah’s immediate family.
Possibly Sarah Marinda Bates Pratt.
This picture appears side-by-side
with Sarah’s husband Orson.
Can anyone confirm this ID?

Laron Pratt
Note arching eyebrow over right eye,
present in all our pictures of Laron
Maybe Herma Ethan Pratt
Note resemblance to Arthur,
and to possible photo of Harmel
or Laron above. These two
green-bordered shots appear
side-by-side below Orson Jr. and
Susan, and opposite Orson, Arthur,
and the possible Sarah Marinda,
as though they were a family group
Another possible photo of Herma
from elsewhere in the book
Maybe Celestia Pratt Tyler
This originally was on a page
facing the possible photo of
Ethelwynne (below left). Maybe both
photos are actually of Celestia,
or Ethelwynne.

Labeled “Lucian” Is this also “Lucian”? And this?
No. 3a No. 3b (i.e. from a page
opposite no. 3a)

same person as no. 3b?)
Is this the actress Lillian Russell?
(not a relative). Shirley’s mother,
Grace Lillian Russell, is named for her

The remaining photos appear on a single spread
and may be a single family group, maybe the family of
Celestia’s husband Albert Peter Tyler. Could one of the men be Albert Peter Tyler?
