    Stanley M. Prentice

    Stanley M. Prentice died Jan. 8, 2007, at age 77. Mr. Prentice was born Aug. 12, 1929, in Portland and later moved to Aloha. He served in the Navy in the Korean War. He then worked for Pacific Northwest Bell.

Stanley was likely married, but the name of his wife is not mentioned in the obituary and may have predeceased him. It is unclear whether she might be the Caryl S.

Who are David Prentice's Parents?

We have not yet determined the identity of his parents, but he just might be a brother to Mark Prentice of Great Weldon , b. c. 1822 in Great Weldon and discussed in our Summer 2005 issue.

There is a chance that David's parents, and perhaps Mark's parents, are John Prentice, b. c. 1797, Weldon, and Hannah, also b. c. 1797, Weldon, shown in the 1851 census in Little Weldon. They were then 54 years of age and the only shown at home was their son, John Prentice, b. c. 1836 and 15 years of age.

It appeared, initially, that David Prentice might be the David Prentice, b. c. 1827-8 in Flowton, Suffolk, England, a Coal Porter, who appears in the 1841 census. He later appears in the 1881 census living on George Street in Hadleigh, Suffolk, England, with his wife, Mary A., b. c. 1829, Westminster, Middlesex, and children:

  1. John Prentice, b. c. 1866, Hadleigh, Suffolk.
  2. Elizabeth Prentice, b. c. 1870, Hadleigh, Suffolk.
  3. Edith Prentice, b. c. 1870, Hadleigh, Suffolk.

However, in our article about John Prentice of Needham, Suffolk, England, that David is #11 and has a different wife and his children shown there are inconsistent with those of the David Prentice in this article (Charlotte, William and Mary).

Investigation is continuing.
