Biography

Pratt was born in Burlington, New York, the son of Jared Pratt (Canaan, New York, November 25, 1769 – Detroit, Michigan, November 5, 1839) and his wife (m. July 7, 1799) Charity Dickinson (Bolton, New York, February 24, 1776 – St. Joseph, Missouri, May 20, 1849), a descendant of Anne Hutchinson. He married Thankful Halsey in Canaan, New York, on September 9, 1827.

The young couple migrated west, where they settled near Cleveland, Ohio, on a plot of "wilderness" where Parley had constructed a crude home. In Ohio, Pratt became a member of the Reformed Baptist Society, also called "Disciples of Christ", through the preaching of Sidney Rigdon. Pratt soon decided to take up the Disciples ministry as a profession, and sold his property.
