My GGGGGGrandfather was Isaiah PRATT. His first
wife was Chloe COMSTOCK. Isaiah was born in New
Hampshire about 1774 and Chloe was born in Connecticut
about 1774. They were married in Connecticut in March
of 1799. They must have moved to Peachem soon after
because their 3 children were born there. Chloe died
in 1804. I found copies of birth, death & marriage records
at the library in Dallas last summer. He remarried and
had several more children. However, on the records the
mother's name had been left blank. Does anyone have
any information about this? I would appreciate any

It appears that Chloe likely died of childbed fever since she died so soon after the birth of Charles.
