Update of 3 Sep 2007:   By email of 3 Sep 2007, Robert Prentice confirms that Benjamin H. Prentice is the son of William Prentice and Sarah Anne Clute who appear as #5 in our Spring 2001 article on Daniel Prentice of NY and Canada .

1. Benjamin Prentice was b. bap. 29 Jun 1853 at Christ Church (Church of England), Campbellford, Ontarioand is of German origin. He appears in the 1881 Tiny, Simcoe North, Ontario census as a Labourer, Methodist, with his wife, and family.

He m. 1st Anna Mary Johnson of Marmora Twp., Hastings Co., ONtario on 5 Apr 1875 She was then 18 years of age, b. c. 1857.

He m. 2nd Margaret Anne Young of Marmora on 28 Feb 1876 in Seymour Two, Northumberland Co. Ontario. Children:

  1. Mary Prentice, b. c. 1878, Ontario.
  2. William Prentice, b. c. 1879, Ontario.
  3. Sarah Prentice, b. Feb. 1881, Ontario.

Benjamin is probably the same person appearing as Benjamin H. Prentice, b. c. 1856 in Canada, in the 1910 Mackinac Co., MI census with his wife, Margaret A., and an additional daughter:

  1. Margaret Prentice, b. c. 1899, Canada

Also living with them was William Young, called a Brother-in-Law, b. c. 1856, Canada. He is likely the brother of Benjamin's wife, Margaret.

Benjamin does not appear in our copies of the 1900 MI census, indicating he likely emigrated to MI at some date between 1900 and 1910.
