Edward S.Prentice of CT
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Winter 2002 and Revised 6 Mar 2008

1. Edward S. Prentice was b. Jul 1839 in CT.

By 1867 he m. Delilah Yates, dau. of Easton P. Yates and was then living in NJ. She was b. Jul 1846 in NJ. By 1880 he and his family had returned to CT and in the 1900 census both were then living in Hartford, CT. Delilah appears without her husband in the 1920 Hartford census; she was living with Archie Davie who is called her brother in law. Children shown in the 1880 and 1900 Hartford census:

  1. Ella S. Prentice, b. c. 1867, NJ.
  2. Lillian C. Prentice, b. Apr 1869, NJ. She appears in the 1900 Hartford, CT, census with her husband, Easton P. Yates, (b. Aug 1871, VT, with both parents b. in VT). Son:

    1. Earl P. Yates, b. Mar 1898, CT. At home in Hartford in 1900.
  3. Ritie(?) M. Prentice, b. c. 1871, NJ.

Who are Edward S. Prentice's Parents?

The only clue we have so far is that the 1900 census shows that both of Edward's parents were b. in NY and by 1839. were living in CT where Edward was born.

The 1840 census does not index places of birth, but the 1850 census shows 4 male Prentices b. in NY and living in CT. However, only 1 was old enough to be Edward's father. He was Samuel Prentice, b. c. 1814, NY, and then living in New London, CT. Samuel appears to be a seaman shown with his fellow crew members with no marital status indicated.
