Nathan R. Prentiss of Reading, MA

Nathan R. Prentiss of Reading, Middlesex, MA
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Spring 2000 and Revised: 23 Apr 2004

Update of 23 Apr 2004: Nathan R. Prentiss is almost certainly the son of Amos E. and Susan Prentiss. This article is now replaced by our Summer 2004 article on Amos E. Prentiss of Arlington, MA .

1. Nathan R. Prentiss, b Nov 1852, MA, appears in the 1900 & 1920 Reading, Middlesex, MA census with wife, Georgiana E., b. Jul 1857, MA and children:

  • Maud E. Prentiss, b. Mar 1884, MA.
  • Alice E. Prentiss, b. Aug 1890, MA.
  • Myrtle A. Prentiss, b. Jun 1895, MA.

Nathan does not appear in the IGI or Ancestral File.

Although only an educated guess at this point, Nathan may be the son of Samuel Prentiss Jr., b. 17 Nov 1812 in Alstead, NH. Samuel and his wife, Cornelia Ruggles, were married in Reading in 1843 and there is no other Prentiss family presently known to have been living in Reading between 1843 and 1865 when Samuel died in Reading.

Samuel and his kin appear in our PRENTICE book at pg. 491 et seq.
