Pridgett rather than Pritchett. The original data on the record is incorrect. Thomas Pridgett was the younger brother of blues singer, 'Ma' Rainey (born Gertrude Pridgett). His WWI draft card shows this spelling and a birth date of May 26, 1894. He appears in the 1920 Census as Thomas Pridgett - aged 25; in the 1910 Census as Thomas Pridget - aged 17; and in the 1900 Census as Tommie Priggett - aged 7. His Social Security Death Index card shows his birth date as May 26, 1893. In the 1920 Census, his wife's name appears as Carrie Pridgett - aged 22. In 1930, her name is difficult to read.
