By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Spring 2007 and Revised 15 Jan 2007

1. William Prentice was b. c. 1881 in St. Kitts and Nevis, Virgin Islands. He appears in the 1920 census, incorrectly indexed as Ventier, as a Carpenter in the Census for the Cristobal, Panama Canal Zone with his wife and family. They later appear in the 1930 census in Silver City, Cristobal District, Panama Canal Zone where his occupation is still given as a Carpenter.

In the 1920 census he is identified as "Black" and in the 1930 census as "Negro."

He m. Alice. She was b. c. 1884 in Montserrat. Children:

  1. Edisford (indexed in 1920 as Edford) Prentice, son, b. c. 1908, Dominica. At home in 1920 and 1930 in Cristobal in the Panama Canal Zone.

Who are William Prentice's Parents?

The only possible clue we have for now is that William's place of birth, St. Kitts and Nevis, suggests he may be related to the Prentice shown inb the 1920 and 1930 census in the U. S. Virgin Islands, where all of the heads of families are shown as also born in St. Kitts and Nevis.

He may also be related in an unknown degree to the Prentice and Prentiss families shown in our Fall 2004 article about the Virgin Island Prentice and Prentiss Families .
