William Prentiss of Vicksburg, Warren Co., Mississippi
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Summer 2009 and Revised 17 May 2009

1. William Prentiss.He may have been b. c. 1900-1910 and perhaps in MS. He d. before 2009 at an unknown location, perhaps Vicksburg. The SSDI does not show any William Prentiss, b. in an appropriate time frame, dying in Warren Co., MS. Neither does the 1920 or 1930 census show a William Prentiss living in Warren Co., MS.

He m. as a 2nd wife, Josephine C. "Jo Bailey" Culverton. She was b. c. 1910 and d. 31 Dec 2008, Vicksburg, Warren Co., MS. Her obituary of 2 Jan 2009 in the Vicksburg Post reads as follows:

    Josephine C. “Jo Bailey” Prentiss died Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2008, at Promise Specialty Hospital. She was 99 [b. c. 1910], Mrs. Prentiss was born in Warren County and attended China Grove School. She was a retired cook and homemaker and a member of Zion Travelers M.B. Church.

    She was preceded in death by her husband, William Prentiss; her father, Oliver Culverton; her mother, Lucinda Page; a stepson, Albert Prentiss Sr.; and a stepgrandson, Ricky Prentiss.

    Survivors include a daughter, Katie Mae Funches of Chicago; a stepdaughter, Marie Burks of Troy, Mich.; a stepson, William Prentiss of Las Vegas; 10 grandchildren, including her caregiver, Eddie Prentiss of Vicksburg; three stepgrandchildren; and a number of great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

    W.H. Jefferson Funeral Home has charge of arrangements.

Children of William and Josephine, assuming all step-children are those of William and a prior wife:

  1. Albert Prentiss Sr. Died before 2009. He might be the Albert Prentiss shown in the SSDI as b. 20 Feb 1915, obtained his SS# in MS, and d. Dec 1982 in Vicksburg, Warren Co., MS. If so, his 1915 birth suggests his father, if 21 in 1915, was b. not later than 1894. He does not appear in the 1920 or 1930 census.

  2. Marie Prentice. She m. Mr. Burks and in 2009 lived in Troy, MI.

  3. William Prentiss. In 2009 he lived in Las Vegas
