We are helping Jean Hensley in tracing her Prentice roots. Here is what we have so far:

1. Mary "Polly" Prentice was b. c. 1819 in Ireland and d. 18 Dec 1874 at the age of 55; she is bur. in Hazeldean, Ontario.

She m. John Barber on 4 May 1839 who is called "of Nepean, district of Bathurst". Children by John Barber:

  1. George Barber, born 20 October 1844, Goulbourne, Hazeldean, Ontario
  2. Adam Barber, born 6 January 1845, Goulbourne, Hazeldean, Ontario. He m. Elizabeth Pitt on 27 Feb 1874 in Edwardsburg, Grenville Co., Ontario.
  3. (perhaps 2 other children)

Mary m. 2nd John Rosborough on 4 Feb 1852. Children of Mary and John:

  1. William Thomas Rosborough, bap. 27 Mar 1853 and d. 4 Sep 1914.
  2. Eliza Jane Rosborough, bap. 24 Feb 1853 and apparently d. 27 Mar 1853.
  3. Susan Rosborough, b. 22 Feb 1854 and d. c. 1 Jun 1854.

  8. John Wesley Rosborough, twin, b. 9 Mar 1864 and bap. 21 Apr 1864.
  9. Lucinda Rosborough, twin, b. 9 Mar 1864 and bap. 21 Apr 1864.

Who are Mary "Polly" Prentice's Parents?

It is only a guess for now, but there is an outside chance that Mary may be the daughter of Richard Prentice who appears in our Winter 2010 article about Richard Prentice of Nepean, Ondario, Canada .
