Update of 18 May 2011: John Prentice is #3ii in our Fall 2003 article entitled George Prentice of Scotland and New York . That article now replaces this article.

We found the following family at Ancestry.com :

Who are John Prentice's Parents?

The only clue we have so far is that the 1910 census says that both of his parents were "Scot English." Hypothesizing that that John's parents might appear in the 1880 NY census, we examined that record. There was no listing for a husband and wife with the Prentice surname.
