• Re Frederick Prentice [1822-1913] & his daughter Mary Edla Prentice [1844-1943], later Mrs Robert Nicol of New York, originally from Toledo, Ohio. I'm the great-great-nephew (by marriage) of Mary (Mollie) Prentice, who married Robert Nicol [1831-1879] in New York 1871. Briefly, Frederick (son of Joseph Prentice, an 'Ohio Pioneer') was an early oil millionaire, owned brownstone quarries, and had numerous business interests in various US states. Robert Nicol, a 'capable Scot', made his fortune in NY. The marriage was childless and Mollie, a 'grande dame' latterly of Park Avenue NY, used her long widowhood to support charitable causes in NY. Her name appears frequently in the NYT social pages 1890 to 1942. I have some family papers which mention the Prentice connection, but would like to know of any published obituaries for either Frederick or Mary and details of their respective estates. Both buried in Willow Cemetery, Lucas County, Ohio. Andrew Rose
