Nathaniel Prentice of Hamilton, MI
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Winter 1998 and Revised 8 Jun 2004

Update of 8 Jun 2004: Nathaniel Pentice appears to be the son of Naham Prentice and a descendant of Robert Prentice of Roxbury, MA.

Nathaniel Prentice appears in the 1850 Hamilton, Van Buren Co., Michigan census. He was born c. 1822 in New York. He is living with Lorinda (Lucinda?) Prentice, b. c. 1802 in NY. Lorind's age suggests she is his parent. His father does not appear in the census record.

Also living with Nathaniel and his mother are his brothers and sisters:

  • Decatur Prentice, b. c. 1831, NY
  • John G.(?) Prentice, b. c. 1834, NY
  • Dorcas Prentice, b. c. 1836, NY
  • Minerva Prentice, b. c. 1842, NY
  • Rebecca Prentice, b. c. 1843, NY

The 9 year gap between Nathaniel's 1822 birth and Decatur's 1831 birth suggests the possibility that Nathaniel may have had a different mother, that Lorinda/Lucinda may a second wife of Nathaniel's father. On the other hand, the gap may signify only that there were 3-4 children born during that period who died before 1850.

The absence of Nathaniel's father suggests his father may have died between 1843 and the time of the 1850 census.
