Thank you for sending me the info on the Prescott's. I recently proved Aaron up as an ancestor for the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. Anyone descended from him would be eligible. If you or any of the relatives you are in contact with would be interested I would be happy to help you. I am the organizing President and Registrar of a Brady [Texas] Chapter. I recently met our cousin Georgia Cowart and she gave me many Prescott pictures most of which I have posted in Ancestry.Com. not all yet.
Mary Ann [Maxwell] Oliver
your distant cousin
