Reuben Prentice of Horn Lake, MS
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Fall 2005 and Revised 14 Jun 2011

Update of 14 Jun 2011: Reuben Prentice is #1ix in our Fall 2009 article entitled George Washing Prentice of Tennessee, Missouri & Arkansas . That article now replaces this article.

1. Reuben Prentice Sr.. Although not yet confirmed, he may be the Reuben Prentice shown in the 1930 census Hector, Mississippi Co.,AR as b. c. 1920 in Arkansas(?), son of Mrs. Rosa Vera Goodman, b. c. 1880, TN. Although Reuben's father does not appear in the household census record, the 1930 census record says that Reuben's father was also b. in TN. Reuben does not appear in the SSDI. Also shown in the 1930 census are Reuben's siblings:

  1. Walter Prentice, b. c. 1913, MO
  2. Mildred Prentice, b. c. 1916, AR
  3. Wilburn Prentice, b. c. 1916, AR. He may, or may not, be the Wilburn B. Prentice shown in the SSDI as b. 10 Jul 1915, who obtained his SS # in TN, and d. 16 Feb 1998 in Lynnville, Giles Co., TN.
  4. Delbert Prentice, b. c. 1918, AR. He is likely the Delbert Prentice shown in the SSDI as b. 16 Sep 1917, obtained his SS# in AR, and d. Jul 1986 in Dyess, Mississippi, Co., AR.

Reuben m. Unknown and had 1 or more children, including:

  1. Reuben Prentice Jr. . . . . . . . [2]

2. Reuben Prentice Jr., b. c. 1940-47 and d. before 2005. He m. Betty Jean "Jeannie". She was b. c. 1946 and d. 16 Jul 2005 at Horn Lake, MS. Her obituary reads as follows:

    PRENTICE, BETTY JEAN 'JEANNIE', 59, of Horn Lake, MS, died Saturday, July 16, 2005, at her residence after a long illness. Services were held Thursday, July 21, 2005, at Brantley Funeral Home with burial in Autumn Woods Cemetery.

    She was preceded in death by her husband, Reuben Prentice, Jr. She is survived by 2 daughters, Bridgette Hudson-House of Horn Lake and Tracy Hudson-Salerno and her husband, Dominic, of San Diego, CA; one son, Robert "Bobby" Hudson and his wife, Sherry, of Horn Lake; a close friend, Jim Stewart of Horn Lake; 5 grandchildren, Larry House, Tyler House, Courtney Hudson, Kelsey Hudson, and William Seckt.

    Jeannie was a Lady of many talents, and her true passions were gardening, interior decorating, and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She dedicated her life to her family, and she will be forever missed. The family requests memorial contributions in her honor may be made to the American Heart Association or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The parentage of the children named in the above obituary is unclear, indicating perhaps that that the children are those of Betty by a prior marriage:

  1. Bridgette Hudson-House of Horn Lake, MS.
  2. Tracy Hudson-Salerno. She m. Dominic (Solerno?, of San Diego, CA.
  3. Robert "Bobby" Hudson. He m. Sherry, of Horn Lake, MS.
