We are helping Erca Larson in finding James D. Pren tice. If you have any information about the folks mentioned in this article, please send your information to us at the Prentice Newsletter. Be sure to give the full title and date of this article in the Subject line of the email.

1. James D. Prentice was b. c. 1848-1852 in Canada per the 1880 census for his wife and children, but he does not appear at home in the 1880 St. Paul, Ramsey Co., MN, census. Erica Larson advises that James and his wife were "divorced in the early 1880s.".

He m. Anna Smith Craig on 5 Jan 1874 in St. Paul, MN. She was b. c. 1852 in Canada, as were her parents. The 1880 St. Paul census calls her married and a Dress Maker.

Children of James and Anna per the 1880 St. Paul, MN, census:

  1. Charles Prentice (later Beecher), b. c. 1875, MN.
  2. Harry Prentice (later Beecher), b. c. 1878, MN.
  3. Daisy Prentice (later Beecher), b. c. 1879-1880, MN.

In Anna's divorce action against James, she claimed abandonment and later, in 1883, m. a Mr. Beecher. The children latter took Beecher for their surnames.

Who are James D. Prentice's Parents?

The only clue we have so far is that James D. Prentice was born in Canada. Perhaps his parents were born in Canada, but there is the possibility that his parents, like many others, emigrated to Canada from England, Scotland, Ireland, or other countries.

We note that Ontario Cemetaries shows a James D. Prentice , "St Margaret's Roman Catholic Cemetery, Midland, Simcoe, Tay; LDS971.317V3g." However, that name is rather common; additional investigation is needed to determine if he is the person who married Anna Smith Craig.
