Update of 28 Oct 2014: Hugh Cameron Prentice is #2(ii)(d) in our Summer 2008 article entitled George Prentice of Blantyre, Lanakshie, Scotland . That article now replaces this article.

1. Hugh Cameron Prentice was b. c. 1887, Alexandria, Dunbartonshire, Scotland as were both of his parents. He emigrated to Canada at some date before 1916 and then emigrated to Seattle, WA at some date after 1918, and perhaps after 1920 since he does not appear in the 1920 census, and before 1928.

Hugh m. Isabella Suter McGowan on 1 Jun 1912, Howard St., Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland. She was b. 1890, Alexandria, Dunbartonshire, Scotland. An Ancestor Chart for her can be found at Ancestry.com . Children:

  1. Hugh Prentice, b. 3 May 1915, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. . . . . . . [2]
  2. Jack Prentice, b. 5 Apr 1917, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and d. Mar 1984, Langley, Island, Washington St., USA. He m. Betty Jean Julian on 31 Jul 1939. She was b. 24 Aug 1922, WA, and d. 17 Jan 2002, WA.

2. Hugh Prentice, b. 3 May 1915, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and d. Mar 1985, Seattle, King Co., WA (per wife's obit. and SSDI).

Hugh m. Anna Evelyn Aasten was b. 14 Apr 1918 in Seattle, King Co., WA and d. 28 Aug 2004 at the age of 86 at Olympic Care and Rehabilitation Center in Sequim, WA. Her obituary reads as follows:


    Anna Evelyn (Aasten) Prentice was born in Seattle, April 14, 1918. She passed away August 28, 2004, at Olympic Care and Rehabilitation Center in Sequim peacefully in her sleep at the age of 86. She was the dau. of John G. Aasten (1887-1971) and Karen M. (1893-1980),

    She grew up in Seattle in the Capitol Hill area of Madison Street and moved to Queen Anne and Thomas, where her parents owned the grocery store (now a post office). She graduated from Queen Anne High School.

    She was married in 1940 to Hugh Prentice, and lived at 13th and Denny for the next 64 years. She loved her job at J.C. Penney's for 25 years. When our father passed on in 1985, she had her thrifty shop at her homesite. Over the years, she became known as ``Queen Anne'' by most of the community on Capitol Hill. Wonderful friends and their pets often stopped by to visit as she sat on her porch and in her little shop.

    She is survived by one sister, Molly Aasten of Seattle; three daughters, Darlene Morgison of Port Angeles, Karen Prentice of Gainesville, Florida, and Sharen Schaefer of Newcastle, Washington; 17 grandchildren, 19 great grandkids and 3 great-great grandkids.

    The family gives special thanks and gratitude to Robert Schmidt for being there throughout the years, for keeping her yard properly maintained, running errands and getting her help when needed. A true friend and renter, he was like a son to our mother as they became very close. Thank you again, Robert, from the family.

    She was laid to rest at the Evergreen-Washelli Cemetery in Seattle. Always loved -- always remembered.

Children of Hugh and Anna:

  1. Darlene Prentice. She m. Mr. Morgison of Port Angeles and in 2004 lived in Port Angeles, WA.
  2. Karen Prentice of Gainesville, Florida. In 2004 she lived in Gainesville, FL.
  3. Sharen Prentice. She m. Mr. Schaefer of Newcastle, Washington and in 2004 lived in Newcastle, WA,
