Summer 2000 and Revised: 24 Jun 2014

Update of 24 Jun 2014: This article has now been merged with our Spring 2014 article about David Prentiss of Malden, Middlesex Co., MA. That later article now replaces this article.

1. Unknown Prentiss was b. c. 1850-1858, MA, (per 1920 census entry for his son, Robert).

He m. Eliza, b. c. 1856, MA. In the 1880, Charleston District, Boston, Suffolk Co., MA census, Eliza, then only 24 years of age, is shown in the 1880 census as a widow and was living at the home of Nathaniel Penniman, apparently unrelated because no family relationship to Penniman is indicated. Living with Elize were her 2 sons:

  1. Irving D. Prentiss, b. c. 1878, MA. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .[2]
  2. Robert M. Prentiss, b. c. 1879, MA. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [3]

2. Irving D. Prentiss, born c. 1878, MA. Living with his mother in the 1880 Boston, Suffolk, MA census. It is unclear whether he is the Irving D. Prentiss shown in the 1880 census in Weston, Middlesex Co., MA, as b. c. 1876, MA, and living with his grandparents, Otis H. and Elizabeth R. Penniman. Not in 1900 and later census records.

3. Robert M. Prentiss, b. c. 1879 MA. Living with his mother in 1880 Boston census. Robert appears in the 1920 and 1930 Concord, Middlesex, MA census with his wife and children:

  1. Dorothy E. Prentiss, b. c. 1905, MA. At home in 1930 census.
  2. Lily M. Prentiss, b. c. 1906, MA. At home in 1920 but not not 1930 census.
  3. Wendell R. Prentiss, b. 19 Mar 1914, MA. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [4]
