Prentiss of West Springfield, Hampden Co. Massachusetts

In researching with Frederick Printiss the Prentiss families of West Springfield, Hampden Co., MA, we found the following persons listed in MA Town Birth Records :

  • Jane D. Washburn Prentiss, b. Mar 1828, West Sprinfield, Hampden Co., MA.
  • George W. Prentiss, b. Nov 1829, West Sprinfield, Hampden Co., MA.
  • Eliza D. Prentiss, b. 4 Nov 1831, West Springfield, Hampden Co., MA.
  • Ellen M. Perry Prentiss, b. Nov 1837, West Springfield, Hampden Co., MA.
  • Henry H. Prentiss, b. 8 Mar 1838, West Sprinfield, Hampden Co., MA.
  • Marden W. Prentiss, b. Mar 1840, West Sprinfield, Hampden Co., MA. (See Thomas eBook, #92ii)
  • Robert T. Prentiss, b. Mar 1842, West Sprinfield, Hampden Co., MA. (See Thomas eBook, #92iii)
  • George M. Prentiss, b. Nov 1847, West Sprinfield, Hampden Co., MA.
  • Anna E. Thompson Prentiss, b. Oct 1849, West Springfield, Hampden Co., MA.

It seems likely that many, if not all, belong to the same family, but so far we have identified only some parents.

We did find an Anna Prentiss living alone n the 1840 Springfield, Hampden Co., MA census but she was then 60-70 years of age and b. c. 1770-1780. No other Prentice or Prentiss appears in the 1840 census in Springfield and West Springfield.
