1. John Prentiss was born c. 1810-1830 . We have conflicting information as to his place of birth:

  • The 1900 census entry for his daughter, Calista, says John and his wife were both born in English Canada.
  • However, the 1930 census record for Calista says John was b. in NH and that his wife, Katherine, was b. in VT.
