Who are Loren Lee Prentice's Parents?

We note that Loren Lee Prentice named his son, Marvin and that there is a Marvin Prentice, b. c. 1906, KS, shown in the 1930 census in Kansas City, Jackson Co., MO (both of his parents b. in KS) with his wife, Ruby Myer, b. c. 1913, KS (both of her parents b. in IA), dau. of Nora Myer in whose home they were living in the 1930 census; no father is shown..

If the foregoing is correct, then the 1906 Marvin Prentice's parents are Luther Franklin Prentice and Mary Elizabeth Sprague. Luther is a descendant of Isaac Prentice of Sheffield, MA whose roots we are researching.

Investigation is continuing.
