Prichet married Emily Talbott, a native of Virginia, on March 4, 1830. Together they had three children: Mary, Gustavus, and James. In 1843, Prichet received a medical diploma from the Ohio College of Medicine in Cincinnati. Dr. Prichet went to California during the gold rush in 1849, but not having the success he hoped, returned to Centreville in 1851 where he remained. He later became co-owner of a drug store with Dr. Reed.
Prichet was commissioned surgeon during the U.S. Civil War for the 57th Indiana Volunteers on November 18, 1861 and remained on duty with the regiments until June 16, 1862, when he resigned because of physical disability. Dr. Prichet passed away on June 6, 1884 in Centreville.
