Do you have the new PRENTICE eBook?
Edmond F. Prentice, Providence, RI
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Fall 2003 and Revised 16 Jun 2010

Update of 16 Jun 2010: It seems likely that Edmund F. Prentice is #105 in our Henry Prentice eBook. That material now replaces this article.

1. Edmond F. Prentice was b. c. 1821 in RI, and d. 11 Jan 1890, age 72 years per RI Deaths. He was a Cigar Maker in the 1860 Providence, RI, census. He is shown with his apparent wife, Sarah, b. c. 1824, RI.

The 1821 Edmond Prentice is likely the same person as the Edmund Prentice shown in the 1880 census as b. c. 1815, RI (with both parents b. in RI) with his wife, Sarah, b. c. 1828,RI (with both parents b. in RI) and son.

  1. Charles Prentice, b. c. 1868, RI, and d. 9 Jul 1927, age 58 years. At home in 1880 census.

He m. Sarah E. who was b. c. 1824, RI, and d. 15 May 1899, RI..

He may, or may not, be the Edmund F. Prentiss shown in "Rhode Island Deaths" as b. c. 1818 and d. 11 Jan 1890 which name as "Kin 1: Thomas Prentiss" and "Kin 2: Nancy Prentiss."

Children of Edmond F.Prentice shown in the 1880 census:

  1. William E. Prentiss, b. 11 Jul 1857 (per RI Births) and d. 23 Aug 1857 (per RI Deaths)
  2. George E. Prentiss, b. 8 Feb 1859 (per RI Births) and d. 14 Apr 1859 (per RI Deaths)
  3. Ella F. Prentiss, b. 8 Jun 1860 (per RI Births) and d. 28 Jul 1860 (per RI Deaths).

Who are Edmond F. Prentice's Parents?

The RI Death Records indicate that his parents are Thomas and Nancy Prentice.

There seems to be a good probability that Edmond F. Prentice is the son of #105 in our Henry Prentice eBook, Thomas Prentiss,, b. 25 Aug 1780, probably Marblehead, MA. He moved from Marblehead to Providence, RI where he d. in 1832. He was a Sea-captain and Baptist clergyman.

He is almost certainly the Thomas Prentice, age 26-45, appearing in the 1920 Providence, RI, census with a wife under 45 and 7 children:

  • 2 sons under 10.
  • 1 son 10-16.
  • 2 daughters under 10.
  • 1 daughter 10-15.
  • 1 daughter 16-26.

Known children per C. J. F. Binney's 1883 book:

  1. Thomas Prentiss.
  2. Edmund Prentiss. See Edmond F. Prentice, #1 above.
  3. Caleb Prentiss, captain of the ship "Endeavour" of New Bedford, MA. .
  4. (dau.) Prentiss. She m. in Providence, RI.
  5. .(dau.) Prentiss. She m. in Providence, RI.

Also shown in Rhode Island Deaths, 1630-1930 are the following persons who appear to have some relationship to Edmond F. Prentiss:

Name 			Relation 	Kin 1        Kin 2 			Death Date 	Age	Born

Adeline W. Prentiss    w. 	Edmund F. Prentiss 	Delana Munroe 		04 Dec 1864 	21 yrs	1843
Ella F. Prentiss 	   d. 	Edmund F. Prentiss 	Delana Munroe 		26 Jul 1860 	1 mos	1860
George E. Prentiss    s. 	Edmund F. Prentiss 	Delana Munroe 		14 Apr 1859 	2 mos	1859
William E. Prentiss    s. 	Edmund F. Prentiss 	Delana Munroe 		23 Aug 1857 	1 mos	1857

In the above table, "Kin 1" seems to be the deceased's father while "Kin 2" seems to be the deceased's mother except in the case of "w" and "wid" and also in the case of "Delana Munroe."
