Alton Prentiss, Marshfield, MA

Alton Prentice of Marshfield, MA
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Winter 2000 and Revised 3 Dec 2004

Update of 4 May 2004: Alton Prentiss is the son of Arthur A. and Mabel L. Prentice who appear in the 1930 census in Athol, Worcester Co., MA. And Arthur A. Prentiss is quite probably the son of Henry and Eliza Prentiss (per 1880 Franklin Co., MA census) and a descendant of Henry Prentice.

1. Alton Prentiss was b. 3 Oct 1896 and d. Dec 1986, Orange, Franklin Co., MA (per SSDI).

We find information about him and his family in the obituary of his widow, Priscilla (Lee) Prentiss in the 29 Sep 1992 Telegram and Gazette, Worcester, MA;

    Obituary: MARSHFIELD - Priscilla (Lee) Prentiss, 91 (b. c. 1901), of Marshfield, formerly of Athol, died Sunday in Mayflower Nursing Home, Plymouth.

    Her husband, Alton Prentiss, died in 1986. She leaves two daughters, Sallee (Twichell) Bielski of Marshfield and Priscilla (Twichell) Davis of Bloomfield, Conn.; a sister, Margaret Schmidt of Athol; five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She was born in Athol and lived there most of her life.

    Graveside services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday in Silver Lake Cemetery, Athol. There are no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of one's choice. Higgins Funeral Home, 146 Main St. Athol is directing arrangements.

Priscilla's obituary seems to indicate that she and Alton did not have children, and that the children named may be children of a prior marriage to a Mr. Twichell.
