Summer 2000 and Revised: 15 Mar 2004

Update of 10 Apr 2001: Leota Miller, by email of 10 Apr 2001, has identified William Riley Prentice's parents as William C. Prentice and Martha Gilmore and his grandparents as John Prentice and Mariah Greene discussed in our article about the Prentices of Halton, etc.

We are trying to identify the parents of William Riley Prentice and his siblings. We had tentatively identified him as a son of John Prentice and Martha Gilmore. John is a descendant of William Prentis of Williamsburg, VA.

However, we have the marriage of John and Martha as 20 April 1857, but we show William as born 3 years earlier. Below is the informationabout William and his siblings:
