Pierce Prentice, Newsletter 97.2.3

Pierce Prentice of Washington Co., NY
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Fall 2009 and Revised 14 Jun 2009

1. Pierce Prentice was b. c. 1774-1780 at an unknown location. He appears on page 351 of the 1800 Cambridge, Washington Co., NY census. He and his wife are under 26 years of age (born after 1774). Children per 1800 census:

  1. (son) Prentice, b. c. 1790-1800.
  2. (daughter) Prentice, b. c. 1790-1800

No other Prentice family is shown in Cambridge,Washington Co., NY in the 1800 census.

He is perhaps too young to be a son of Reuben Prentice of Washington Co., NY who also appears in the 1800 Washington Co., NY census, but he might be a brother.

Pierce might also be a brother to Zelotus Prentice of Washington Co., NY who appears in the 1810 Washington Co., NY census for whom no parents have been identified.

Bill Semeyn has suggested, because of some phonetic similarity, that Pierce Prentice may be the same person as Perez Prentice who appears on pg. 459 of the new, 1997 3rd Ed. of our Prentice book (Binney's 1883, Ed., pg. 335). According to Binney, Perez was born in 1773. However, an 1840 census shows Perez's birth date as being between 1750-60.
