Summer 2005 and Revised 26 Feb 2009

1. (Unknown) Prentice may have been b. c. 1865, IA, per the 1900 census record of his son, George.

He may, or may not, have m. Alice Mary Heit (see #2, below), b. Jan 1872, IA, per Ancestry.com . Children

  1. Bella M. Prentice, b. 13 Aug 1887, Des Moines, Muscatine, IA, and d. 14 Jul 1908 at age 31 years. She m. as his 1st wife Ira Howell Bellomy on 23 Sep 1907, MO, He was b. 31 Aug 1881, Appleton City, Bates Co., MO, and d. 30 Dec 1961, Whittier, Los Angeles Co., CA. He was the son of Robert G. Bellomy (1838-1908) and Anna Mary hale (1841-1934). An Ancestor Chart for Ira can be found at Ancestry.com .
    After Bella's death in 1908, Ira then m. as his 2nd wife, Anettie Emde (1894-1968) on 16 Aug 1914, Whittier, CA, and had a dau., Dorothy Marie Bellomy, b. 1821.

  2. George Baker Prentice, b. Jan 1889 in Iowa. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [2]

2. George Baker Prentice was b. Jan 1889 in Iowa, as were both of his parents (per 1900 census). or was b. 4 Jan 1890, IA, and d. 23 Mar 1954, Los Angeles, CA (per Ancestry.com ).

He appears in the 1900 census in Medicine Township, Rooks Co., KS, as a Stepson in the home of George M. and Alice Eaby George was b. 1876 in KS and Alice was also b. 1876 in Iowa and presumably is George's mother. It appears that Alice was only about 13 when her son, George, was b. in 1889, so he was either born out of wedlock with Alice's maiden surname being Prentice, or his father was either divorced or deceased by 1900.

In the 1910 census, George Eaby (b. c. 1877, KS) and his family are living in Fullerton, Orange Co., CA. His wife is called Mary A. (Mary Alice?), b. c. 1873, IA, with George B Prentice still living at home, age 20.

George m. Martha O. c. 1915, Russia. Martha was b. c. 1891. George had 1 or more children, including (per 1930 census in Montebello, Los Angeles Co., CA):

  1. Bruce W. Prentice, b. c. 1922, Indiana
  2. Richard B. Prentice, b. 16 Jun 1923, Indiana. . . . . . . [3]
  3. David R. Prentice, b. c. 1925, Indiana
  4. Susan B. Prentice, b. c. 1927, Indiana

3. Richard B. Prentice, b. 16 Jun 1923 and d. 1 Sep 2004 in Parowan, UT. So far, we have no further information about whether he married and had children.

Who is "Unknown" Prentice?

If he were b. c. 1865 in IA, and if he appears in the 1870 census, we found 2 likely possibilities:

  • Robert Prentice, b. c. 1865, IA, and in 1870 living in Crescent, Pottawattamie Co., IA

  • William Prentice, b. c. 1866, IA, and in 1870 living in Lee, Polk Co., IA.
