Looking for ancestors of my G-grandfather Timothy Prentiss, probably of Dorchester (or environs) Mass. Probably born around 1870's or 80's. Yeah,,I know it's vague, but my father remembers very little of his childhood as he and his father were estranged. Would really like to help my father find our roots. He deserves it, as he won the Bronze Star and Purple Heart at Bloody Gulch on Iwo Jima in '45.

Pat Shipman is seeking information on Adam Prentice, born ca. 1857-58, alive and elderly in Kediri, Eastern Java, in 1938. Adam managed a coffee plantation called Mringin near Kediri in the 1890s; his son, Gerard Alexander Prentice-McLellan was born May 21 1891 in Java. I have a series of letters from Adam to Eugene Dubois; they make no mention of his wife and the son lived with his maternal grandparents in Malang, Eastern Java. Adam may have gone Java from England as Prentice is not a Dutch name and the Dutch & English were the only common Europeans in Java in the 19th century. If you have any information about Adam's parents, wife, or descendants, please contact me.

I am from Brent in Bibb County, Alabama. I need some help in finding the father of my g-g-grandfather, William Prentice. The 1870 Bibb County Alabama census lists William, age 40, born in New York; wife, Eliza Jane (Bates) born in Alabama; son James Preston, age 12, born in Alabama. After 1870, William and Eliza Jane move to Hampton, Georgia, but James Preston stays in Bibb County where he marries Nancy Marcilla James in 1882. The only information I have on William is a letter written in 1888 from Georgia. It seems William was a trial judge in Hampton. There were no other children as far as I know. We are the only Prentices in Bibb County. Other Prentices are in Shelby County and elsewhere, but every time I check census and other records, these other Prentices are from Virginia, North Carolina, and Tenneessee. Any clues as to how to go about finding William in New York would be appreciated.

I have traced my PRENTIS line back to 1600 but I have a couple of "thin spots." I am needing further documentation on two men, both named PASCAL PRENTIS. One was born 16 Oct. 1806 in Milton, Chittenden County, VT. He married a woman named Jane ?, born ca 1814 in Vaughan Township, York County, Ontario. The other, his son, was born in 1834 in Vaughan Township, York County, Ontario. He married Jannet Macrae (born 1843, Black Isle, Ross & Cromarty, Scotland) 10 June 1861 at Cape Rich, St. Vincent Township, Grey County, Ontario. Pascal(b 1834) and Jannet had five daughters Mary Jane, b. 1862, Elizabeth, b. 31 Aug 1863, Port Elgin, Bruce County, Ont Janet, b 1865/6, Bruce County, Ontario Georgina, b. 12 April 1867, Saugeen Twp, Bruce County Olive, b. 10 April 1871, Saugeen Twp, Bruce Co, Ont. PascalPRENTIS and Jannet MACRAE were divorced in Marquette, Michigan in 1874-5. Pascal was not present in Michigan at the time of the divorce. Does anyone know anything about his whereabouts after 1871? Any info about the deaths of either Pascal PRENTIS or Jane (?) PRENTIS. I am spelling their surname as PRENTIS because that is how Jannet Macrae Prentis signed her name at the time of the divorce.

Please tell me if you know anything about Stephen Prentis the poet (1800-1862)who lived for the last 25 years of his life at Dinan, France, and brother Edward, painter (1797-1854). They were the sons of Walter of Rochester, Kent, England, and both were baptised at the Earl Street Presbyterian church, Maidstone. I know the very brief entries in (British) Dictionary of National Biography, and the admirable article on Stephen by Mr P. Meazey in Le Pays de Dinan, vol. 15 (1995), 305-21. Edward is said to have had 11 children! Besides biographical detail I am interested in locating copies of Stephen's rare pamphlets, and the originals of Edward's many - and once popular- paintings.

I'm searching for JAMES PRENTISS.His grandson DONALD LEE PRENTISS is a friend of mine. His grandfather had two sons, JAMES Jr. and CHARLES EUGENE PRENTISS. Charles is Donald's father, who passed away July 12, 1990 in Columbus Ohio. Donald was told his granfather had been in and out of prison, possibly the Ohio Penitentiary. James Jr. is also deceased,he passed away before his brother. Charles had 10 children with his wife Magdelena, in Columbus Ohio.WILLIAM EUGENE PRENTISS the oldest son of Charles passed away December 18, 1988. As far as Donald knows he is the oldest male Prentiss still alive from his grandfathers decedants. He has no other information about his grandfather, therefore we have no idea where to begin searching.My next step is the Ohio Historical Center and the State Library. If you could assist us with any information we would greatly appreciate it.

I am looking for information regarding my Greatgrandfather, James Monroe Prentiss. I know that he was living in Texas in 1882 because my grandfather, James Claude Prentiss, was born then. I do not know what part of Texas. It is believed that J.M. married a woman from the Texas Cherokee Band (this is not confirmed). If you can provide me with any information of any kind, it will be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Ethel Hurt

Does anyone have any information about a surviving crewman on the Titanic named Frank Prentice? He was a Storekeeper aboard ship and was picked up by Lifeboat No. 4 after leaping from the stern when the ship foundered. My guess is that he lived in Southampton, as did many of the ship's crewman.

Wisconsin Prentices My paternal grandmother, Ella Phoebe Prentice was born about 1870 in New York or Wisconsin. She grew up in Wisconsin but her family was said to have moved from NY. Her father was George Prentice and mother Lydia Paddleford. I know she had a sister.

He is long gone and I know no more about his mother, but yearn to. Some of my siblings and nieces and nephews carry the Prentice as a middle name. Please fill us in! Deborah Nye
