1. Horace Prentiss, b. c. 1842, in NY. He does not appear by that name in any census other than the 1880 census. He appears in the 1880 census in Mechanicsville, Ceder Co, IA. as a Furniture Dealer with his wife and family.
He m. Jennie. b. c. 1842, in NY. Children:
- Arthur Prentiss. Born, circa 1867. At home in 1880.
- Almira/Myra Prentiss. Born, May 1871, in PA. At home in 1880.
Neither Arthur nor any members of his family appear in later census records.
The only clue we have so far is that the 1880 census tells us that his father was b. in PA and his mother was b. in NY. The 1880 census in IA does not show a father and mother with that profile
