Who are Agnes Prentice's Parents?

In reviewing the 1861 census, we found 2 possible sets of parents for Agnes:

  1. Agnes Prentice, b. c. 1854, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, dau. of William Prentice (b.c. 1826, Glasgow), Cotton Weaver, who in 1861 was living in Glasgow Barony with no wife shown. He is likely the William Prentice shown in the earlier 1851 census in Glasgow with his wife, Grace, b. c. 1829, Glasgow.
