Winter 2002 and Revised 13 Jan 2009

Update of 13 Jan 2009: John Prentice is the son of William Prentice, discussed in our Spring 2009 article entitled William Prentice of Scotland and Bay City, MI . That article now replaces this article.

1. John Prentice was b. 1865 in MI, with both parents b. in Scotland. He appears in the 1900 Bay City, MI census with his wife and family.

He m. Catherine in 1889. She was b. Mar 1867 in MI, with her father b. in England and mother in MA. They had 4 or more children, including:

  1. William Prentice, b. Mar 1890, MI. Not in 1930 census.
  2. Mary Prentice, b. Mar 1893, MI.
  3. Edward Prentice, b. Feb 1897, MI. . . . . . . . . . . . [2]
  4. Loretta Prentice, b. Jan 1899, MI.

2. Edward John Prentice, b. Feb 1897, MI. He is also probably the Edward Prentice who appears in the 1930 Bangor, Bay Co., MI census with his wife, Dorothy, b. c. 1897, MI, and children:

  1. Katherine Prentice, b. c. 1925, MI
  2. Loretta Prentice, b. c. 1927, MI
  3. Edward Prentice Jr., b. c. 1930, MI. . . . . . . . . [3]

3. Edward John Prentice Jr., b. c. 1930, MI. For his descendants, see our Spring 2001 article about Edward John Prentice .

Who is John Prentice's Father?

John Prentice's father may be William Prentice, b. c. Oct 1830 in Scotland, who appears in the 1880 Bay City, MI, census and 1900 Bay City, Bay Co., MI census where he is called the father in law of George Shorey.

And, although the census record seems to indicate a different birth year, that William Prentice may be the same person as Unknown Prentiss who appears in our Winter 2002 issue.
