*** Ezekiel "Zeke" PRESCOTT ***
Taken from "Moweaqua Remembers"

Ezekiel
PRESCOTT was born in the east and was known as Ezekiel Prescott STACY. But, after a violet fight with his father he left home and forswore his father's name retaining his mother's family name. The PRESCOTT name can be traced back to Sir. Jess PRESCOTT who served Queen Bess in England.
