Who are George Prentice's Parents?

We note that the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) shows that Clenton (Clinton?) L. Prentice was b. 9 Mar 1904 and d. 3 Jun 1993 in Ringgold, Catoosa Co., GA. Also shown by the SSDI is the death of Bertie E. Prentice who was b. 8 Jul 1912 and d. 26 Dec 1989, also in Ringold.

Their ages are such that the could be husband and wife and could be the parents of George Prentice who apparently was living in Ringgold in 2005. Additional research is obviously needed to prove, or disprove, that possibility.

The 1904 Clenton L. Prentice is likely the same person as Clentern Prentice who appears in the 1910 census in New Decatur Ward 4, Morgan Co., AL, son of Jeff E. Prentice (b. c. 1881, AL) and his wife, Pearl (b. c. 1887, AL).

Although the birth year is off by 3 years, Jeff E. Prentice might be the same person as Jefferson Prentice, b. 1878, AL who is #13b(i) in our Summer 2006 article about the Prentices of Halton, etc..
