Bon Jellico Families

The Lawrence Prewitt Family


    Lawrence Prewitt, son of James Prewitt and Susie Oliver Prewitt, was born in 1905. He married Rosa Caddell and worked in the mines at Bon Jellico and Harlan County. Lawrence became a Baptist preacher. Earl Lovitt wrote, “I was present the night he got saved in the Bon Jellico School House in a revival meeting. Lawrence was on his knees at the mourners’ bench and all of a sudden up he came, shouted round the room, lost his billfold; but he didn’t care. He had found the Lord.”  

    Lawrence moved back to Whitley County in later years and lived on Cripple Creek Road in Williamsburg.
