Jonathan Prentice of Wood Co., WV

Jonathan Prentice of Wood Co., WV
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Winter 1999 and Revised 18 Apr 2004

Update of 18 Apr 2004: Although further investigation is needed for confirmation, it seems likely that he is Jonathan Prentice, #37 in our Jonathan-3 Prentice eBook, a grandson of Valentine Prentice.
1. Jonathan Prentice first appears in the 1810 Wood County, West Virginia census. From that record we can glean the following information about him:
  • Jonathan was 26-45, and born between 1765 and 1784.
  • His wife was the same age range.
  • There was a male child, under 10, and born between 1800 and 1810.
  • There was another female in the home, perhaps a daughter, age 16-25 and born between 1785 and 1794.

With the apparent broad age range between the young male and female, it seems likely that the boy is close to 10 and the young female close to 16. If that is correct, then the Jonathan and his wife are probably about 38-42 and b. c. 1768-1772.

Also in the same census in Wood County are the following persons to whom Jonathan may be related:

  1. Henry Prentice, New Point, Wood Co., VA
  2. Stanton Prentice, New Point, Wood Co., VA.
