Who are Gordon Bruce Prentice's Parents?

In reviewing Canada's census records, we note in the 1911 census the family of:

  • Alex N. Prentice, head, b. Jun 1870, age 30.
  • Viola Prentice, wife, b. 1882, age 28.
  • Gordon Prentice, son, b. Sep 1910, age 3. (Note: either the age or birth year is incorrect.)
  • John Prentice, son, b. Apr 1909, age 2.

Further investigation is needed to determine if that is the correct Gordon Bruce Prentice.
