In some family papers I found a clipping from a Canton, IL paper of, I assume, 1915, regarding the 60th wedding anniversary of John P. Prentice and his wife, Martha A. Culton Prentice. According to the article, John P. was born in Oneida county, NY, 15 Dedcember 1832, and came to Illinois with his parents, Mr. & Mrs. James Prentice about 1836. James died about 1846. John P. "continued to reside in Galesburg until 1851, when he went to Knoxville [IL] where he spent two years learning the tinners trade," after which we moved to Canton [IL]. He and Martha were married in Knoxville (she was apparently a resident of Canton, however) on 14 May 1855. John P. served in the Civil War in Co. K, 103 Regiment, Illinois Volunteers, discharged in January, 1864. After the war he went to Galesburg until 1876, when he again moved to Canton. In 1873 he moved to Delaban, and then again to Canton in 1880. John P. had 6 children, 4 surviving in 1915: Elmer E. Prentice of Canton ,Ernest A. Prentice of Cincinnati, R. C. Prentice of St. Helen, MI, and Mrs. M. L. Beam of Canton. Present at a dinner party for the Prentices were Mr. & Mrs. Elmer Prentice and daughter Harriet, Mr. & Mrs. W. L. Beam and daughter Gladys, Earnest A. Prentice of Cincinnati, Mrs. Harriet Seavey of CAnton, a sister to Mrs. John P. Prentice, and Miss Alice Prentice of Galesburg, John P.'s sister. My problem is that although "my" Prentices also migrated from the Oneida, NY area to Galesburg, I can't connect with John P. I can't find him in the e-book version of the Valentine Prentice genealogy. I have a John Prentice who's the right generation, but he was the son of Junius Cireno Prentice, and even though he was born in Oneida Co., NY around 1832, I don't think he's the same guy. Any information would be appreciated. BTW, the article is cut off -- it ends with "Mr. Prentice has been an invalid for many years, owing to exposure during the" -- don't you hate that?

I have an old antique hand drill press that belonged to my grandfather Jay R. Prentice. These words are inscribed on the chuck: A.F. PRENTICE, Maker, Worcestor, Mass., pat pend Feb. 15, 1870. It is in very good working condition and would like to know more about the manufacturer. From all I could learn so far I think it is more of a coincidence than an ancestor but would like to know more. Can anyone help? Bruce Prentice 970-332-4191

I am looking for information on Prentices in SD. Lucy Laura Prentice was born abt 1883, I think in SD. She married John Bacon in Grand Forks bef 1905. They had 2 children, Lillian and Charles Percy. She died before 1918 and her children were adopted by the Hackett family in 1918. That's all I know about her. The Grand Forks City Directory for 1909 lists a George Prentice, but I have no idea how they might be related.

My family is searching for facts about the family of Lucy A. Prentice, born in No. Stonington,CT and married at Norwich,CT in 1854 to George H. Webb formerly of Canada. They apparently moved to Canada before 1859, as my grandfather, Francis M. Webb, was born in Canada that year. Her dates don't match any families that we could find in the records.

G E O R G E and M A R Y P R E N T I C E Mulmur Twshp. Dufferin Co. Ontario. From my research to date, it appears that James and Mary (Rutledge) Prentice and James and Agnes (Scott) Finley had adjoining farms in Huntingdon Twsp., Hastings Co. Ontario. Records indicate that James Finley Jr. married his neighbour, Mary Ann Prentice in 1854. I have collected a fair amount of data on their decendants. We also believe that Mary Ann may have had a brother, George, who married James Jr.'s sister, Mary. George and Mary eventually relocated to Mulmur Twsp. in Dufferin Co. The only information I have on this family is of George's internment at the Honeywell cemetery from the OCFA records. Any help that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
