Update of 21 Sep 2008: Thomas Prentice is #2 in our Fall 2001 article entitled Duncal HilstonPrentice, lesmahagow, Scotland . That article now replaces this article.

We are helping Jeanne Margaret Crosbie in working with her PRENTICE family tree. She has generously provided us with the following information. Some of the information is tentative and subject to further investigation and confirmation. To her information we have added census information.

1. Thomas Prentice was b. c. 1819, Delserf, Lanarkshire. He appears with his wife and family in the 1851 and 1861 census in Lesmahagow, Lanarkshire.

He m. Jane Muir, b. c. 1822 or 1825, Lesmahagow, Lanarkshire. Children per IGI and census records:

  1. Margaret Prentice, b. c. 1845, Lesmahagow. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [2]

    Note: Confirming the 1851 Lesmahagow census record, by email of 3 Jan 2000, Jeane Crosbie advises that Margaret's Marriage Certificate both of them as then living in Hazelbank, Lanarkshire, and gives the names of Margaret's parents. Although hard to read, the surname of her father is Prentice, and the first name might be Thomas. The surname of her mother is Muit, and the first name might be either Jane or Janet. No other Prentice family in the 1851 census has a daughter, Margaret, except Thomas and Jane, #1, above.

Margaret married George Francis Crosbie 31 Dec 1867 at Lesmahagow. George was born in Kirkfieldbank, Lesmahagow in 1839. They had at least the following children:

  1. Thomas Keith Crosbie, b. 9 May 1868, Lesmahagow and d. 25 Jun 1930 in Harvey, IL.. His children included:
    1. Josiah Crosbie, b. 1911 in Lesmahagow.
