Fall 2003 and Revised 19 Mar 2011

1. George M. Prentice was b. Jul 1853 in Ohio. George and his 2nd wife, Alpha, are both bur. at Mt. Pleasant Cem., Geneva, Ashtabula Co., OH.

George does not appear in the IGI nor does he appear in the 1860, 1870 or 1880 census. He first appears in the 1900 census as a Postmaster, and 1910 Fairfield City, Clay Co., NE census as a Postmaster with his wife.In 1920 he lived in Lake Worth, Palm Beach Co., FL per Ancestry.com .

He m. 1st Ellen, c. 1885 (per 1900 and 1910 census). She was b. c. Apr 1857-58, OH (her father b. in OH and her mother in CT).

George m. 2nd Alpha A. Boynton on 24 Jun 1885 in Cuyahoga Co., OH (per OH Marriages). She was b. c. 1866, OH (her father b. in OH and her mother in NH). In 1879, as Miss Alpha A. Boynton, she was a teacher of English Studies in Hiram College and Western Reserve Eclectic Institute. Son per 1900 census:

  1. Philip Prentice, b. Jun 1888, NE. At home in 1900. Not in 1920 or 1930 census.

Also living with the family in the 1900 census was Clarence Gleason, nephew, b. Oct 1882, OH.

George may, or may not, be related to Ellen A. Prentice, b. Aug 1862, OH, who appears in the Clay Center, Clay Co., NE census where she was a Boarder in the home of Dwyer B. Gillette.

The 1885 Fairfield, Clay Co., NE, census shows living together, perhaps as siblings:

  • Edwin Prentiice, b. c. 1849, OH.
  • George Prentice, b. c. 1853, OH.
  • Nellie Prentice, b. c. 1863, OH.

Who are George M. Prentice's Parents?

The only clue we have so far comes from the 1900 census which says that he father was b. in OH and his mother in MA.
