|Notes: Mary Detwiller was born 7 Jul 1874 in St. Marys, Perth, Ontario. She was the second surviving child of Henry and Mathilda Detwiller. She was named Mary, after their first daughter Mary, who had lived only four days.|
| In the 1881 Canada
census, her family was living in Blanshard Twp., Ontario. It included her
brothers John, born in 1872, William, 1876, Alexander, 1878, and Fredrick, 1879.
Andrew was born in 1881 after the census was taken. According to the 1940 U.S.
census, Mary had an eighth grade education. In 1886, the family immigrated to
the United States, settling in Tyrol Twp., Griggs, North Dakota. Her
last brother, Harry, was born in the United States in 1891.|
Mary married Robert Hamilton Pratt on 20 Dec 1899 in Griggs County, North Dakota. In the 1910 census, they had four children. These were Robert, born in 1900, Erma, 1902, Ida, 1905, and Howard, 1909. The family was living in Cooperstown, Griggs County, and Robert was the manager of some kind of shop. By the 1915 North Dakota census, they had two more children, namely Wallace, born in 1910, and Kenneth, 1912. At this time they were probably living on their own farm, which was about 6 miles north of Cooperstown.
In the 1920 U.S. census, Lawrence, born in 1917, had been added to the family. The entire family was still together in the 1925 North Dakota census, but by the 1930 U.S. census, Mary's two daughters had married and moved out. In the 1940 U.S. census, only Lawrence was living at home.
Mary's husband Robert died in April 1941, and Mary moved off the farm and into Cooperstown. She died 30 Dec 1963, after a brief hospitalization with blood poisioning or toxemia. Her services were held in the Presbyterian Church, the Rev. Robert Schurr officiating. She is buried in the Cooperstown Cemetery, Cooperstown, North Dakota, with her husband.
