Services Held For Elmer Prentice, 84

    Services for Elmer Prentice were held at the Speece Chapel yesterday with Rev. Charles Simpson, pastor of the First Methodist church officiating. Burial was at the Fairview cemetery.

    Prentice, 84 died at his home in Fairview Monday following a year's illness. Until two years ago he trained horses, work he had loved since he was a small boy. He was born in Hanover Center, New York, but with his parents came west in 1878. When his parents returned he chose to remain. He was fourteen at the time he began working on various cattle ranches in Kansas and Indian Territory. One was the old Bob Campbell ranch near Kiowa. He also worked for Zack Miller father of the boys who later established the 101 ranch. In later years he often talked of his trips to Texas and back with cattle over the old Chisholm trail. In March 1893 he was married, and with his wife made the run into the Cherokee Strip. They filed on land fourteen miles east of Enid in Garfield county. This was later sold when they moved to Major county. For three years, between 1902-1905 he worked with the Pawnee Bill show.

    For several years the Prentices lived first in New York state, Anthony, Kansas, Lambert, Oklahoma and Amarillo, Texas, but in 1906 they moved permanently to Fairview.

    Survivors include a son, O. K. Prentice, Arcade, New York, and a daughter, Miss Myrtle Prentice, Fairview.
