Pratt was a scientist. At least it would be named after someone who cared about learning.

As I recall he was not a young earth believer. He thought each "day" was an untimed epoch with unknowable time in between.

Smith's moves to seduce other men's wives were so brazen and notorious that they led one distraught husband--Orson Pratt--to attempt suicide in Nauvoo on 15 July 1842:

“Thousands of Nauvoo Mormons search[ed] for Orson Pratt after discovering a suicide note. They find him distraught because Smith, according to Pratt's wife, had tried to seduce Pratt's wife Sarah.”
