Wentworth Nathaniel Prentice of the U.S. Virgin Islands
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Spring 2007 and Revised 16 Jul 2008

We are helping Dave Prentice in tracing his Prentice Roots. Here is what we have so far from our research and his emails of 14 Jul 2007 and 15 Jul 2008:

In reviewing 1920 and 1930 Virgin Island census records, all heads of families were born in St. Kitts and Nevis and settled on St. Croix island in the Virgin Islands. All were identified as "Colored" in the 1920 census and as "Negro" in the 1930 census as were all members of those families. The following persons likely would be similarly classified.

1. Father: Unknown Prentice

Mother(s): Unknown. Children:

  1. Leonard Prentice. In 2008 resides in Nevis and lives on Craddock Road. He was a pastor.

  2. George Prentice. Mother unknown. They had a son:
    1. Wentworth Nathaniel Prentice. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [2]
    2. Vernon Prentice.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [3]
    3. Merle Prentice, daughter.

      Note: Vernon and/or Merle Prentice have 2 sons, Vance Prentice and Vernon Prentice Jr., one having 2 daugters. one of them having 2 daughters.

2. Wentworth Nathaniel Prentice (son of George), b. 1942, probably in the Virgin Islands.. In 2008 he lives in the U. S. Virgin Islands.

Mother: Inez (she had daughters by a prior/subsequent relationship: Michelle and Danielle). Children of Wentworth and Inez:

  1. Dave Prentice, b. c. 1989-90, and in 2007 living in the U.S. Virgin Islands (per his emails).

Mother(s): Other than Inez:

  1. Jill Prentice. In 2008 she is a school security guard.
  2. Kim Prentice.
  3. Felicia Prentice.
  4. Ngozi Prentice, brother.

3. Vernon Prentice (son of George). In 2008 he resides on St. John. He m. sister of Inez, above. Vernon is related to Dave Prentice, above, on both Dave's mother & father's side, for his wife is my Dave Prentice's mother's sister.

Who are Wentworth Nathaniel Prentice's Parents?
