Luisa and her husband died when their son, William, below, was quite young. She was in the infirmery along with him when he was 4 years old. She died shortly after that and William was was then raised by another family, the relationship to him is unknown. Louisa and her husband had 1 or more children, including:

  1. William Henry Prentice, b. 13 May 1846, Ripley, Brown Co., OH. . . . . . [2]

2. William Henry Prentice, b. 13 May 1846, in Ripley, Brown Co., OH [2]. Census: 1850, in Lewis, Brown, OH. Census: 1880, in Brown Co. OH. As noted above, William's parents died when he was quite young and he was was then raised by another family, the relationship to him is unknown.

William married Fannie Drake, 6 Sep 1870, in Brown Co., OH. Born, 9 Jun 1844, in Brown, OH. Died, 31 Aug 1896, in Ripley, Brown, OH. Census: 1880, in Unk., Brown, OH. Children:

  3. Cornelius Prentice. Born, circa 1876, in OH. Census: 1880, in Unk., Brown, OH. Not in 1920 census.
  4. (perhaps) William Prentice was b. c. 1885 in OH. He appears in the 1920 census in Dayton, Montgomery Co., OH, with his wife, Edith, b. c. 1889, OH, and children:
    1. Ellinor/Elinore Prentice, b. c. 1909, OH.
    2. William Prentice Jr., b. c. 1911, OH.

3. Sumner Prentice (William Henry, 2). Born, 15 Mar 1874, in Ripley, Brown, OH[5]. Died, 22 Oct 1942, in Dayton, Montgomery, OH. Census: 1880, in Unk., Brown, OH. Census: 1900, in Dayton, Montgomery, OH. Census: 1920, in Dayton, Montgomery, OH[6].

  1. Harold Richard Prentice. Born, 12 Jul 1943, in Dayton, Montgomery, OH. He married Andra Jean Waters, 7 Aug 1965, in Dayton, Montgomery, OH.

Who is the Husband of Mrs. Louisa Prentice?

We had theorized that perhaps Louisa and her husband might be Andrew Jackson Prentis and Louisa Scott who married in 1840 at Medina, OH.

However, new information suggests that is unlikely. A search at Ancestry.com indicates that she was b. c. 1822 in NY (not OH) and that she married, as her 2nd husband, Artemus P. Catlin and was living as late as 3 Jan 1858 when her daughter, Eva Catlin was born.

There is a chance that another son of Louisa might be Sylvester S. Prentice, b. c. 1839, KY who appears in the 1850 Pleasant, Brown, OH census in the home of George and Martha Fearis. Pleasant lies only about 4-5 miles to the east of Lewis. Both lie just north of the Ohio River which separates OH from KY son a move from OH to KY, or vice-versa, would not be unusual.
