Prentices of Mt. Morris, NY

(This is a reprint of an article appearing in our Fall '95 Issue)

With the invaluable help of Bill Semeyn of Shelbyville, MI we believe we have been successful in identifying several families living at Mt. Morris, Livingston County, NY. The first of those is that of NATHAN PRENTICE who appears there in the 1820 census with his wife and family. He may have died before 1830; the census of that year, which is probably the same family, as the head of the household, Betsey Prentice and her two sons.

The 1850 census appears to identify those two sons as Henry and Hiram, both then having families of their own.

John, born about 1803 in New York State, is shown with three daughters in the 1860 census:

  • 1. Sarah E., born about 1844. She married John Crumack.
  • 2. Mary A. "Addie", born about 1847. She married Adelbert Watrouse.
  • 3. Elizabeth, born after 1848. She married a Mr. McIntire.

    The 1860 census also shows that he was then living in Perry, Wyoming Co., NY. Perry lies about 10 miles west of Mt. Morris.

    Although additional investigation is needed for full confirmation, it seems likely that Nathan's line of descent from Valentine Prentice is as follows: Valentine-1, John-2, John-3, Joseph-4, Simeon-5.
