Summer 2001 and Revised 13 Oct 2008

Linden J. Prentice was b. Dec 1851 in IL. He appears in the 1900 Nebraska City, Otoe Co., NE census as a Teamster with his wife and family.

He m. Susan Corkey, b Jun 1853, IN, and their children:

  1. Hugh A. Prentice, b. Feb 1883, IA. Not in 1910, 1920 or 1930 census.
  2. Sarah Prentice, b. May 1886, IA
  3. Lillie Prentice, b. Sep 1888, NE.
  4. Arthur L. Prentice, b. Dec 1891, NE. Not in 1910, 1920 or 1930 census.

Also living with them was Martin P. Corkey and Silas Corkey, both called brothers-in-law.

Who are Linden Prentice's Parents?

No other Prentice family appears in the 1900 Otoe Co., NE census.

The only information as to the identity of Linden's parents comes from the 1900 census which says that both of his parents were born in OH. We do not know the dates of their birth, but it was likely 1815-1830, and we do know that by 1851 they had moved to IL when Linden was born.

If one assumes, as a working hypothesis, that the parents were in IL, where Linden was born, at the time of the 1850 census, we find 2 families in the 1850 census who were b. in OH and who were living in IL in 1850:

  1. Royal Prentiss, b. c. 1824, OH and in 1850 living in District 37, Rock Island Co., IL. However, the 1860 census in Port Louisa, Louisa Co., IA, does not shown him with a son named Linden.

  2. William Prentiss, b. c. 1814, OH and in 1850 living in Rushville, Schuyler Co., IL. He does not appear in the 1860 or 1870 census.
