George L. Prentice is #294 in our John-3 eBook. We are seeking spouse and descendant information. Here is what we have so far:

394. George L. Prentice was b. 3 Feb 1836, in CT. In the 1870 census in Putnam, Windham Co., CT he appears as a Farm laborer with his family. Census: 1880, in Unk., Windham, CT. Census: 1900, in Putnam, Windham, CT.

He married Caroline "Carrie" L. Dean, 11 Aug 1862. Born, Apr 1838, in CT [782]. She may be the Caroline Dean shown in the 1860 census in Plainfield, Windham Co., CT as a weaver; no parents are shown; her age is indexed as 27 (b. c. 1833, CT) but the handwriting on the microfilm could be age 23 (b. c. 1827, CT).

She appears with her family in the 1870 census in Putnam, Windham Co., CT. Census: 1900, in Putnam, Windham, CT.

The identity of her parents is a puzzle. The 1900 Putnam census indicates her father was b. in CT and mother in MA. The 1850 census does not show any Caroline/Carrie b. in the 1833-1837-1838 time frames mentioned above. There is, however, in the 1850 census a Caroline Dean shown as age 20, b. c. 1830, Plainfield, CT, dau. of Nathan Dean (b. c. 1813, Plainfield, CT) and his wife, Sarah(?) (b. c. 1810, Scituate, RI). It might be that the other birth years for Caroline were guesses (or fibbing by Caroline to appear younger) and that the MA birth place for her mother was a guess. Further investigation is obviously needed.

Children of George and Caroline:

  1. Mary Estella Prentice. Born, 14 Sep 1866 [503]. Died, 8 Feb 1869.
  2. Harry Foster Prentice. Born, 15 Mar 1870, in CT. Census: 1870, 1880, 1900 and 1920 in Putnam, Windham, CT. One source says he married Mabel C. However, he appears in the 1930 census in Putnam with a (2nd?) wife named Theresa L., b. c. 1886, NY, and step-children and grandchild:
    1. George U. Dennler, b. c. 1906, CT.
    2. Marie E.Dennoer, b. c. 1906, Germany.
    3. Betty L. Dennler, b. c. 1928, CT.
  3. Lena Augusta Prentice. Born, 1 Jun 1873, in CT. Census: 1900, in Putnam, Windham, CT [914]. She does not appear with the Prentice surname in the 1910 census.
