Who are John A. Prentice's Parents?

Although John A. Prentice's middle initial is different, it seems likely that he is the son of Nelson Prentice and Mary Rice who appears in the 1860 census living at home under the name John L. Prentice. The main reasons for thinking that John is their son are (1) that Nelson and his wife also appear in the 1880 census in Sardinia, Erie Co., NY, (2) they both show a birth year of c. 1847, and (3) both Johns were b. in the State of NY. Nelson Prentice is #146iv in our John-3 eBook.
