Jabez Prentiss, NC

Jabez Prentiss of NC
Summer 1999 and Revised 25 Mar 2000

Update of 23 Mar 2000: By E-mail of 23 Mar 2000, Margie McGrew has provided us with new information establishing that Binney erred in identifying the family of Jabez Prentiss who is 206/78a in our PRENTICE book. The corrected family is set forth below:

Jabez Prentiss (206/78a) was b. c. 1780 and probably in CT. He was the son of Dr. Samuel and Lucretia. He probably died before 1820 as he does not appear with his family in the 1820 NC census.
