Rachel Pratt, She was born about 1797, the daughter of Levi Pratt and Mary Hathaway. Levi served in the Revolutionary War, first riding about Bridgewater, MA to sound the alarm at the start of the war. He later served as a cook in the officer's mess and saw some action after that. He received a pension and upon his death Mary applied for one but it took several years because there were too many Levi Pratts. She finally got her pension the month before she died.
