He appears at age 19, unmarried, in the 1900 census in Post Oak, Johnson Co., MO, as the manager of a Creamery. 1910 census in Norton, Norton Co., KS as a Creamery Superintendent.

    Mr. Prentice was formerly manager of the creamery here, but is now traveling for the Continental Creamery Company with headquarters at Great Bend [Barton Co., KS].
