With the help of Elizabeth Larrabee of Guelph, Ontario, Binney's 1883 PRENTICE book (#119,168), and Barbara Stephenson's census records, we have constructed the following family tree:

1. Nathaniel F. Prentice , the son of Solomon and Elizabeth Prentice, was b. 11 Oct 1825 in NY. Nathaniel is #119/168 in our PRENTICE book. He is shown as unmarried, age 26, in the 1850 Rockton census. His profession was that of a physician. He is shown in the 1860 Freeport, Stephenson, IL census with his wife, Miranda Charlotte Hyatt who he m. on 20 Nov 1851, Winnebago, IL (Illinois Marriage Index 1763-1900, Vol.1). Miranda was one of 3 children born to Jacob HYATT and Pamelia Agusta HOOKER See Fn. 1. Known children:

  1. Elizabeth Printice, b. c. 1854, IL
  2. Charles S. Prentice, b. c. 1862, IL. He may be the Charles S. Prentice, b. Jan 1862, IL, who appears in the 1900 Albert Lea, Freeborn Co., MN census and 1920 St. Paul, Ramsey Co., MN census with his wife, Clara Susan Shaffer, b. 18 Nov 1861, IL.
