I have some information on David Philip Pruett. His name might be also spelled David Philips Pruett, or David Phillips Pruett. He is my great grandfather. My grandfather, Mealing Eugene Pruett (1910-1982) is Harwood Rosser Pruett's older brother.
My grandmother wrote down some of the ancestry. Apparently David Philips (?) Pruett was adopted by the Pruett family. Mealing Eugene Pruett (1847) was wealthy and childless. David Philips (?) came from a family of 10 children (Philips family) and they were unable to care for him. The Pruetts' adopted David and he took their name. I do not know how old he was at this time.
Unfortunately I don't know any more about it. I'm so far unable to find the Philips' ancestry.
I am also not able to find any information on Henrietta Adams. I have heard rumors in our family that she is related to John and John Quincy Adams, but I have not found anything yet. David met her on a ship to Africa on his first job as a doctor. Henrietta was the daughter of the captain of the boat. They lived in Kinston, Alabama and had 6 children. Henrietta died shortly after giving birth to twins. David remarried 6 weeks later (at Henrietta's request) to Edna Willis and had 6 more children.
