My great-grandfather was Dann Nathan Travis Prentice, born in 1851/52 in Illinois (I think). His father was born in New York and his mother in Kentucky but I don't know who they were. He was married to Clara Minnie Collins from Hancock, Illinois. He died in Linn County, Kansas in 1944 where much of his family lived. I am eager to learn his pedigree.

I haven't seen anything about the Prentice company. You should research it. It was a machine making company. We made the machines that punch out holes in wood. (Out of business now.)

I descend from Caroline Prentice. She was born, according to census records, in New York, around 1815, and moved to Ashtabula County, OH (possibly in or near Harpersfield), by 1820, according to one source. She married Lorin Chapman in Ashtabula Co. in 1835. Lorin and Caroline moved to Springfield in Livingston Parish, Louisiana by 1840, and lived out their lives there, raising a large family. Caroline died around 1862 in Livingston Parish, Louisiana. I've no idea who her parents are, nor any info on siblings. Any nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Jeff in Livingston Parish, LA

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. Susan Clark

I am looking for information on a Prentiss and ran across your site. I would like to know the Prentiss that a logging town was named after and the bay it sat on. It was in the upper penninsula of Michigan (west of Drummond Island on the shores of Lake Huron and now 7 miles east of Cedarville). There was a Prentiss M Brown, statesman from St Ignance, but he was born about the time the town was booming, which was a little more than a hundred years ago. If any of you have information I would greatly appreciate it.

I am researching the family of RICHARD PRENTICE b. 1740-1760 and his family. He was a Loyalist in the American Revolution from Saratoga Springs, New York. He settled in Ontario Canada, then called Upper Canada in the 1790's. First in Charlottenburgh then to the Nepean / Hull area in the 1815 time frame. (Nepean, Ontario is directly across the river from Hull, Quebec) At some point he moved to Quebec City as I have him passing away there before 1848. His Children were: DANIEL PRENTICE b. 1972-7 in Charlottenburgh who then moved and raised a family in Nepean near Ottawa. He married Ann Colbert of Ireland and raised 9 children. He died in 1866 and we have pictures of his original headstone. DEBORAH MARY PRENTICE bc.1799 she married David Moore of Hull in 1815 in Nepean and had 12 children. She died in 1849 in Hull. SARAH PRENTICE b. 1801. She married Job Moore of Hull, the brother of her sisters husband, also in 1815 in Nepean. They had 8 children and lived in Hull Quebec. Her death was about 1831 in Hull. LYDIA or ALIDIA PRENTICE b. 1805 married George Routliffe of Hull (who was born in Devonshire England). They had 15 children and settled in Hull Quebec. She passed 15 Sep 1877 in Aylmer Quebec near Hull. Richard had at least 2 brothers who also were Loyalists and served in the American Revolution: DANIEL PRENTICE from Tryon County New York who settled in Charlottenburgh Ontario. He Married Mary Hamilton and raised at least 5 children and JOHN PRENTICE who married Catherine McMillan and settled alos in Charlottenburgh. They had at least 4 children. If anyone has information or is also researching these families, please contact me at Lajohni@aol.com

He married Gwendolyn Dorie who was an only child (her father was George Dorie). Her mother was Jessie Revans. If anyone knows of any other info, please contact.

I live in Oxnard, California. About 15 years ago, I got old photos and post cards from a storage locker. One photo is of a Prentice, but I can tell what the first name is. It also says "son of Mathan Prentice". This is writing in cursive. The man in the phot looks to be around75-85 years old, drseed in a suit (sometime in the 1800's and has a pocket watch dangling from his vest. He has grey hair and a very large nose.

Hi. I am looking for information please and relatives. Some branches at the top of my family tree seem a bit hazy at the moment so if I give you info from the middle and down perhaps you can help. My Great Great Grandad was THOMAS THEOPHILUS PRENTICE. My Great Grandad was CHRISTOPHER POULTON PRENTCE. I know that he was a pork butcher in Bildeston, as my Dad remembers going there. My Grandad was CHARLES WILLIAM FREDERICK PRENTICE who married MURIEL GRACE ALDOUS (GRACE). Anyone out there related to me? I would like help with the top of the tree as I said and would like to hear from other descendents, especially Great Uncles etc. Thank you, Amanda. P.S I am in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England.

I email you a few years back with information I have on Henry Prentiss of Aquackanonk, NJ (Wallington 1700's). I don't know in my orginal email if I mention their was a Prentiss family cemetary but the location was unknown. I have since found the location and the photos of the broken grave markers. I happened to find this research when I visited the Bergen County Historical Commission and was informed that Wallington had a cemetary. I said I knew that but I didn't know where it was located. She was surprised I didn't know, so she bought out a loose leaf folder and there was the pictures and story And location of the grave yard. The broken markers where found by the owner of the property and still has them. I can send a copy of the 5 page folder if anyone wishes. Please email me back. I am more than happy to help.
