1. Wilbur Robert Prentice was b. 2 Aug 1913 in Freedom, NY (per Soc. Sec. Index and Ancestry.com). His Social Security card was issued in NY. Wilbur probably died about 16 Mar 1985 in either Phoeniz, AZ, or Glendale, Maricopa Co., AZ where his last Social Security benefits were paid.

Wilbur appears in the 1930 census, age 15, identified as a nephew and living in McKean Co., PA in the home of Alexander Huber (b. c. 1879, Switzerland) and his wife, Nettie (b.c. 1889, PA). Nettie may be a sister to Wilbur's mother.

He m. Elizabeth Alice Phillipson 7 Dec 1946 in Rochester, NY. She was b. 19 Jul 1920 in Rochester, NY. Her obituary of 1 May 1992 in the Buffalo News relates that she d. Monday, 27 Apr 1992 at the Coronado Care Center, Phoenix, AZ.
