Winter 1999 and Revised 7 Jan 2011

1. Worthington "Worth" Prentice, b. Dec 1861 in OH, with both parents b. in NY. He appears in the 1900, 1910 and 1930 Columbus, Franklin Co., OH census with his wife and family.

He m. Margaret/Maggie, b. May 1869, OH, with her father b. in Germany and mother in Scotland. Children:

  1. Carl Prentice, b. Apr 1891, OH. At home in 1910. Carl appears in the 1920 Columbus, Franklin, OH census with his wife, Jessie, b. c. 1896, OH.
  2. William "Willie" Prentice, b. Oct 1894, OH. At home in Columbus in 1910. 1930 at home and called "Willis N. Prentice."
  3. Robert Prentice, b. c. 1897, OH. At home in Columbus in 1910.

Living with the family in the 1930 Columbus, Franklin Co., OH, census is Elizabeth Looker, b. c. 1859, OH, a widow (maiden surname not given)..

There is an outside chance he might be a son of Albert Prentiss who appears on pg. 461 of our PRENTICE book. Albert was b. Aug 1820, VT and in 1850 was a merchant in Worthington, Franklin, OH. Albert had at least two children, a daughter, Sarah, who was born in 1852 and another daughter, Frances, b. c. 1857. However, the 1910 census says that both of Worthington's parents were b. in NY.
