Isaac Prentice Sheffield, Berkshire Co., MA
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Fall 2003 and Revised 1 Jul 2009

Note: This replaces our earlier Spring 1998 article about Isaac Prentice of Vermont and out later Spring 2001 article about Isaac Prentice of Vermont.

Lenwood Prentice and Janet Nation are trying to identify the parents and ancestry of Isaac Prentice. We have combined their information with information contained in Bernie Boylan's letter of 8 May 2003. Here is what we have so far:

1. Isaac Prentice was b. 21 Jul 1783 in Sheffield, Berkshire Co., MA (Binney, 1883, 55/56ii) and is a descendant of Henry Prentice of Cambridge, MA. Binney says Isaac d. 10 Jan 1799. However, Bernie Boylan's letter of 8 May 2003 says that Isaac m. and moved to VT. Further investigtion is needed to know when and where Isaac died. In any event, Bernie Boylan also said that Isaac had a son:

  1. Isaac Prentice, b. 30 Jan 1803, somewhere in VT. . . . . . . [2]

2. Isaac Prentice was was born 30 Jan 1803 somewhere in Vermont and both of his parents were born in MA (per 1880 Solon, Kent Co., MI census). He was a farmer. We do not know for sure, but it may be that Isaac, his parents and his siblings may have lived for a time in Canada. We know Isaac lived in Canada in 1830 and 1832 from the places of his marriage and birth of his oldest son, Chester. He then returned to Vermont before August, 1834 (see below).

Isaac married Mary/Maria) Martin about 1830 in Canada when he was about 27 years of age. She was born in 1812 in Canada, as were both of her parents (per 1880 census). Children of Isaac and Mary:

  1. Chester Prentice, b. 1832, Canada. He does not appear in the 1880 US or 1881 Canadian census.
  2. Mary Prentice, b. 14 Aug 1834 in Vermont. . . . . . . . . [3]
  3. Fletcher Prentice, b. 1837 in Michigan. Children (per 1880 census):
    1. James W. Prentice, b. c. 1864.
    2. Phillip Prentice, b. c. 1866.
    3. Thomas J. Prentice, b. c. 1868-1870, MO. He appears in the 1910 and 1920 Decatur, Macon Co., IL census as T. J. Prentice with his wife, Minnie B., b. c. 1876, IN, and children
      1. Thomas J. Prentice Jr., b. c. 1909, MO.
    4. Luther Prentice, b. 18 Jun 1871. . . . . . . . . . [4]
    5. Sarah Prentice, b. c. 1874.
    6. Liota Prentice, b. c. 1878.
  4. Maria J. Prentice, b. 1840 in Ohio. She m. Mr. Town.
  5. Alvira Prentice, b. 1843 in Ohio (or maybe MI: see Update, below).
  6. Wesley Prentice, b. 1845 in Ohio. . . . . . . [5]
  7. Harriet Prentice, b. 21 Apr 1847 in Ceder Springs, Kent, Michigan.
  8. Marvin Obadiah Prentice, b. 12 Jul 1850 in Michigan. . . . . . . . [6]
  9. Amanda Prentice, b. c. 1858. She m. John Darland. He was b. c. 1851, Canada, as were both his parents (per 1880 census, Solon, Kent, MI). Children:
    1. Willett Darland, b. c. 1875, MI

    Note: The 1850 Vermont census has an ISAAC PRENTICE, farmer, b. c. 1833 in the State of New York, and living in Milton, Chittenden Co., VT. He did not appear in the 1880 census, either missed or perhaps living in another State. It is unclear if he is a son of the 1803 ISAAC who was apparently living in Michigan in 1850, presumably with all his family.

    The 1900 VT census has an ISAAC PRENTICE, b. Sep 1831 in Canada and living in Worcester, Washington Co., VT. His father was also born in Canada and his mother in England. The 1803 ISAAC apparently was living in Canada in 1832 when his son, CHESTER, was born. This ISAAC was born in 1831.

    There is a reasonable possibility that the 1831 ISAAC might be a son of the 1803 Isaac since parents often name a son after the father.
