Request help identifing possible children of Aaron Prater.

This Aaron, was the son of Philip John Prater and Susannah Hubbard, born
ca. 1790, in Pendleton District, South Carolina. I am aware that John
W. Prather, Jr. stated in his Volume II book "PRATER, PRATHER, PRATOR,
PRAYTOR in AMERICA" that Aaron married Elizabeth Williams and had no
known issue and, to date, this is a true statement as far as I am
aware. However, I offer the following in hopes that someone else on the
PDL has also researched this line and can provide me with some much
needed help:

1820 SC Census - Pendleton District
Aaron Prater with: 1 M under 10, 1 M between 26 & 45(Aaron)
3 F under 10, 1 F between 26 & 45

1830 GA Census - Hall County
Aron Prater with: 1 M under 5, 1 M 5-10, 1 M 10-15, 1 M 30-40(Aaron)
1 F 5-10, 2 F 10-15, 1 F 15-20, 1 F 30-40

Aaron and Elizabeth were m. 1-15-1854 (Hall County Bk. A, Pg 233)

1870 GA Census - Hall County
Aaron Prater age 82 M SC
Elizabeth " " 52 F SC

1880 GA Census - Hall County
Elizabeth Prater age 68 F SC Widow

Aaron died after 8-31-1874, date his will was written, and before
12-7-1874, the date his will was probated. (Hall County Book of Wills,
Book "A", 1837-1867 & 1868-1890, Page 60.) No mention of any children
in Aaron's will! I have not reviewed all of the supplementary documents
pertaining to his will, as of yet.

Sorry this is so long. Hope someone on the PDL can provide me with some
assistance on this. ANY and ALL help would be greatly appreciated!
