Update of 14 May 2008: We now have been able to identify John as #4 ix in our Winter 2004 article about James Prentice of Kilbarchan which you will find at our article entitled James Prentice of Kilbarchan, Renfrew, Scotland .

We are helping Carol Austin in tracing the ancestry of her grandfather, John Alexander Hannah Prentice. Here is what we have so far:

1. John Prentice was age 26 and b. c. 1878 at the time of his 1904 marriage according to the record of his marriage. He was then living in New Stevenston, about 10 miles ESE of central Glasgow.

He m. Jean Scobie 26 Feb 1904, Glasgow and who, at that time, was living in Holytown, just NE of, and abutting New Stevenston.

John and Jean do not appear as a married couple in the 1901 Scotland census. They had 1 or more children, including:

  1. John Alexander Hannah Prentice was b. 30 Sep 1911. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [2]

2. John Alexander Hannah Prentice was b. 30 Sep 1911, perhaps in, or near, Lanark, Lanarkshire, Scotland, but that is unclear. He d. at 19 Galston St., Glasgow, on 22 Jul 1971 at the age of 59 years and almost 9 months. John served with the 8th Army in Africa in WW II.

He m.1st Mary O'Donnell in the 1930s, perhaps in St. Aloyius Catholic Church. Mary may have been b. in Lanark, or possibly Springburn where her mother, Roseann (McElhinney) O'Donnell. wife of James O'Donnell, was living in the 1901 census. John and Mary had 1 or more children, including:

  1. Rose Ann Prentice, b. 15 Sep 1937 in Possil Park. She is Carol Austin's mother.

John m. 2nd Ellen (Millington) Banks.
