Charles Nelson Prentice, Noble Co., IN

Charles Nelson Prentice of Noble Co., IN
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Winter 1999 and Revised 1 Jan 2007

Update of 1 Jan 2007: We have concluded that George Prentice is #108 in our John3 eBook and is the son of Nathaniel Prentice and his 2nd wife, Lucy Campbell for the reasons set out in our email of 31 Dec 2007 Doris Bornitz, a portion of which is set out below:

    ". . . Your email said that your cousin's photo had a number of photographs with all pictures are listed by name and how they were related to your grandfather, Charles Bowlby. You said that there are an Orpheus and Laura Prentice, brother and sister, who are listed as cousins to your grandfather, Charles.

    That provided a significant bit of new information. Using it, I pulled our our John-3 eBook and drew a chart showing relationships. Here is how it plots out:

    1. Nathaniel Prentice, #33, b. c. 1763, married 1st. Margaret Hedden and had a son, Nathaniel Prentice, #110, b. c. 1808.
    2. Nathaniel , #33, married 2nd, Lucy Campbell. They had a son, George C. Prentice, #108, b. c. 1793, who would be a 1/2 brother to Nathaniel, #110.
    3. Nathaniel, #110, m. Catherine Rice and had Orpheus and Laura.
    4. George, #108, m. Anna Dingman and had Margery Prentice who married Andrew Bowlby.
    5. Margery would be a 1/2 1st cousin to Orpheus and Laura with Andrew Bowlby being an in-law 1/2 1st cousin to Orpheus and Laura.
    6. Margery's son, Charles Bowlby, your grandfather, would actually be a 1/2 1st cousin once removed, to Orpheus and Laura. That relationship is not inconsistent with Charles Bowlby being called a cousin to Orpheus and Laura.

    In thinking about my own cousin, Ray, he has some children and I would normally refer to his children as my cousins without bothering to get into relationship technicalities.

    So, bottom line, my conclusion is that by the use of those photographs we have now established that your grandfather, Charles Bowlby, and you, are descended from Nathaniel Prentice and his 2nd wife, Lucy Campbell."

Original Article:

A. George Prentice, born NY at an unknown date, but perhaps c. 1815-1825 based on the the 1846 birth of his daughter, Margery, below. He probably have died in 1862 as that is when his children were appointed a guardian named Thomas Wilson (per Doris Bornitz, email, 11 Mar 2006).

An 1882 History of Noble County, IN says his brother, Nathaniel , moved to Noble County in 1837 "with his brothers." Nathaniel would have come with his parents, Nathaniel Prentice and Lucy Campbell. The family move to Noble County included George as U. S. Land Records show a Deeds dated 1 Aug 1844 and 1849 to George Prentice of Noble Co., IN. In addition, plot maps for Ligonier (Sparta Twp.) show that George owned land abutting that of his brother, Nathaniel.

He m. Anna Dingman on 11 Oct 1846 (per Doris Bornitz, email, 30 Dec 2006). Anna was b. 10 Mar 1822 (per Kim Baker, email, 13 Jun 2001 and referencing family Bible that belonged to Sarah "Lizzie" (Galloway) Prentice.) She d. c. 1834 (throat disease)[313].

Much of the Indian Village Cemetery information was supplied by email on 23 Sep 1999 by Hilda King whose ancestor is a sibling of Charles F. Hyndman who m. Susan A. Prentice, above.

Kathryn Ojerio suggested, before Charles' middle name (Nelson) was discovered, that Charles is a great-grandson of Nathaniel Prentice and Lucy Campbell who arrived in Noble about 1835. She says that most of his children stayed in the area, marrried and had children there, and at least one changed the spelling of his name to Prentiss. She cites the History of Noble and Whitley Counties.

If that is correct, then Charles is most likely the son of Nathaniel's son, Nelson Prentice, because of Charles' middle name, "Nelson." He is probably not a son of Nathaniels son, Nathaniel, who did not marry until 1851, nor is he likely a son of Nathaniel's son, Charles, since the youngest of Charles' 8 known children was born some 16 years before Charles Nelson Prentice.

Although Kim Baker's understanding is that George's parents were Nathaniel Prentice(b. CT) & Margaret Hedden (b.14 Feb 1776), such identification should be taken with caution since Kim Baker says that she does not recall where she received her information.

George Prentice might be the George Prentice, b. c. 1793, probably in NY, and the son of Nathaniel Prentice and his 1st wife, Lucy Campbell. George's 2nd wife was Margaret Hedden. The 1793 George is a half-brother to Nelson Prentice, after whom Charles Nelson Prentice may have been named, or perhaps Nelson and Charles have a common ancestor after whom both were named. On the other hand, if Abraham C. Prentiss of Noble County is George's son, they cannot have the same mother since Charles was born in 1849 and Abraham's Civil War Pension File indicates that Abraham's mother died about 1834.

Also shown in the 1880 Noble County census is Russel E. Prentice of Kendallville whose relationship to Charles, if any, is not known.

    Fn. 1: An obituary provided Hilda King on 30 Sep 1999, identifies Dean Prentice's wife as Shirley A. Plank, b. 14 May 1828, Sturgis, MI, dau.of Sherman and Dorothy Plank

    Dean Prentice may have had another wife. Hilda King's E-mail of 3 Oct 1998 contains an obituary for Delores Treese who died 8 Apr 1994 and is buried at Indian Village, Noble Co., IN. She was b. 19 May 1938 in Shipshewana to Benjamin and Libbie(Keim) Treece. She married Dean Prentice on April 1,1975. The obituary says that her survivors are her husband, one daughter, Debra Allen of Ligoneer, one son, Rodney Steward of Cromwell; two sisters, Pat Millard of Cromwell and Linnie Gonser of LaGrange, one brother, John Treece of Cromwell, and seven grandchildren.

    Fn. 2: Ralph E. Iden m. Bandora W. Kolbert. It is not known if he is related to Aura and Charles. They had a daughter, Catherine Iden, b. 18 Mar 1930 who m. Charles Geiger and lives at 2336N 800N Cromwell, IN 46732, Te. 219-635-2257.

    Another unknown relationship is that of Joyce Kolberg, 1350 Eastgate Dr., Kendallville, IN 46755, Tel. 219-347-3685. Another unknown relationship is that of Ellen Kolberg, 921 N. Van Buren, Auburn, IN 46706, Tel. 219-925-4973.

    Fn. 3: Of unknown relationship are (1) Eric Byrd and Tracey, 949 W. Perry Rd., Ligonier, IN 46767, Tel. 219-894-3511, and (2) Hazel Byrd.

    Fn. 4: Information about Ivan's descendants from Danial Replogle's email of 20 Oct 1999.

    Fn. 5: By E-mail of 10 Nov 1999, Daniel Replogle advises that Doris'birth record at the Noble County Health Department identifies her father as Douglas Stark.

    Fn. 6: TThe 1880 census and Noble Co. Dept. of Health Death Record says he was born in Noble County. The 1920 census says he was born in Ohio but would seem to be the less reliable source.

    Fn. 7: The birth record of her 1st child, Floyd, on 22 Jan 1905 says she was then 19 years old.

    Fn. 8: Margaret's Death Record says she died in Kendallville.
