The Newton "Puff" Prater Family, Salyersville

The Newton "Puff" Prater Family stood in front of their house on East Maple Street in Salyersville, Magoffin County, Kentucky, in 1932. L-R: Marion Prater (b. 9/17/1913, d. 10/6/1969), who married Lois Koblenz; Lucian Prater (b. 8/22/1912, d. 7/5/1993), who married Amanda Gullett; Newton "Puff" Prater (b. 8/28/1888, d. 1/1/1940); and Dora Porter Prater, Newton's wife (b. 5/3/1985, d. 12/6/1962). "Puff" Prater operated a general store in Salyersville for several years. He was the owner of the 1930 Chrysler pictured. The building behind the auto was the Rob Morris grocery store at that time. This same building is occupied by the Discount Gold and Gifts store, which has been there the past five years. James E. Allen, 447 Kentucky Street, Salyersville, KY 41465-9463 shares this photo.
