Joseph Prentiss of Chesterfield, NH

Joseph Prentiss of Chesterfield, Cheshire Co., NH
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Fall 1998 and Revised 3 Oct 2008

Update of 3 Oct 2008: Joseph Prentiss is #29.11 in our Henry Prentice eBook. See now that material.

The 1850 Chesterfield, Cheshire Co., NH census shows Joseph Prentiss and his unnamed wife (probably Persis) living with the family of Bradley Prentiss, probably their son.

Joseph Prentiss was then age 75, and born about 1775. He is probably the same person shown in the NH IGI as Joseph Prentiss, b. 2 Sep 1774 in Hinsdale, Cheshire Co., NH, son of Joseph Prentice and Sarah. The elder Joseph would likely have been born c. 1750, but we have not identified his parents.

Joseph might be related to Robert Prentiss, discussed on pg. 462 of our new PRENTICE book. Robert Prentiss was born 13 Oct 1770 in Winchester, Cheshire Co., NH. Winchester lies only about 10 miles south of Chesterfield. Robert's father was said to have been a captain in the army and born in Boston.
