Who are William Prentice's Parents?

We do have a possible clue, Ellis Island Records establish that a William J. Prentice, age 17 years, of Irish Ethnicity, whose last place of residence was Tyrone, Ireland (probably County Tyrone, Ireland ), departed the Port of Glasgow and Moville aboard the "Anchoria" and arrived in the Port of New York on 19 Jan 1893; his stated destination was New Jersey.

Although further investigation is needed for confirmation, there seems to be a good chance that he is the William Prentice we are seeking.
