Sarah Prentice of Christchurch, New Zealand

Sarah Prentice of Christchurch, New Zealand
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Spring 2010 and Revised 10 Jan 2010

We found the following family in Ancestry.com :

1. Sarah Prentice was b. c. 1817. Penzance, Cornwall, England per Ancestry.com .

She is shown on the website as marrying, as his 2nd wife, John Bennetts, b. 4 Nov 1820, St. Just In Penworth, Cornwall, England, and d. 9 Oct 1893, Calumet, Houghton, Michigan, USA. An Ancestor Chart for him can be found at Ancestry.com .

John had a prior marriage to Charlotte Sarah Grint (b. ???? and d. 1 Jan 1913, Christchurch, New Zealand). Children shown for John and Charlotte:

  1. John Erasmus Bennetts, b. Jan 1866, Christchurch, NZ.
  2. Elizabeth Charlotte Bennetts, b. 1 Oct 1868, Nelson, NZ.

The Ancestry.com website is confusing because it shows those same children as the children of John and his 2nd wife, Sarah Prentice. That inconsistency also raises the question whether John even had a 2nd wife named Sarah Prentice.
