1. Lewis Prentice was b. c. 1804. NY. He appears with his wife in the 1850 census for Jamestown, Grant Co., WI. Not in 1860 census. He is likely the same person as Louis Prentiss who appears as a carpenter and widower in the 1870 and 1880 census in Reads Landing, Wabasha Co., MN, and with both parents shown as b. in CT.

He m. Catherine c. 26 Nov 1843 (per MI Marriages). She b. c. 1803, NC.
