Nathaniel and Henry Prentice of Burlington, NY
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Fall 2006 and Revised 10 Jul 2006

Is Nathaniel really Nathan?

We have been aiding Charles F. Prentice of Montrose, PA in his efforts to identify his Prentice roots. Here is what we have so far:

1. (unknown) Prentice m. (unknown). They had at least 2 children:

  1. Nathaniel/Nathan Prentice, perhaps twin, b. in or near Preston, CT in 1787. . . . . . . [2] .
  2. Henry Prentice, perhaps twin, b. in or near Preston, CT in 1787. . . [3]

It is Charles' family oral history that the widowed mother (name unknown) of Nathaniel/Nathan and Henry moved from the Preston-Plainfield area of CT to Burlington Flats, Otsego County, NY. For a discussion as to their roots, see the discussion, below, asking Who are the parents of Nathaniel and Henry Prentice? .

2. Nathaniel/Nathan Prentice, perhaps twin, b. in or near Preston, CT in 1787. He is probably the same person as the Nathan Prentiss who appears in the 1820 census in Burlington, Otsego Co., NY, age 26-45 (b. c. 1775-1794). with a wife, age 26-45 (b. c. 1775-94) and children:

  1. Son Prentiss, age 10-16 and b. 1804-1810 (probably Nathan). . . . . . . . [4]
  2. Son Prentiss, age 0-9 and b. c. 1811-1820 (probably Luke). . . . . . . . . .[5]
  3. Son Prentiss, age 0-9 and b. c. 1811-1820.

Subject to verification, he is likely the Nathan who later appears in the 1930 census in New Lisbon, Otsego Co., NY, which lies about 10 miles SSW of Burlington, age 40-50 (b. c. 1780-90) with his apparent wife, age 30-40 (b. c 1790-1800) and children:

  1. Son Prentiss, age 10-15 and b. 1815-20
  2. Son Prentiss, age 15-20 and b. c. 1810-15
  3. Dau. Prentiss, age 10-15 and b. c. 1815-20.c. 1811-1820.

While reviewing the 1850 Nauvoo, Hancock Co., IL census we noticed the family: of Nathan Prentice, b. c . 1787, CT, living with his son, Luke, in the 1870 Nauvoo census, and d. 1872 at Nauvoo, IL. He m. Elizabeth, b. c. 1891, NY and d. 1864, Nauvoo. By email of 11 May 2002, Connie Eccles advises that both Nathan and Elizabeth have a joint stone at the Historic Nauvoo Cemetery. Living with him were:

  1. Luke P. Prentice, b. Oct 1817, NY, his wife, Christianna, and daughter, Lucia. (See #5, below)

Subject to further investigation for confirmation, we think it probable that this Nathan, born 1787 in CT, may be the same person as the Nathan in #2, above.

3. Henry Prentice, perhaps twin, b. in or near Preston, CT in 1787. On 20 Feb 1812, Henry married Phebe Smith. and had several children (for additional descendants of Henry, see Appendix A . He appears in the 1820 Burlington, Otsego Co., NY census 2 households away from his brother, Nathan, with 2 children under 10 years of age. Known children:

  1. Henry Prentice Jr., b. 18 Apr 1816. Not in 1880 census.
  2. John Adams Prentice, b. 24 Oct 1817. He is probably the John Prentice who appears in the 1880 Hartwick, Otsego Co., NY census with his wife, Lydia, b. c. 1822, NY, and son:
    1. George H. Prentice, b. c. 1853, NY.
  3. George Loren Prentice, b. 8 Nov 1820. Not in 1880 census.
  4. Truman Prentice, b. 11 Jul 1824. . . . . . . . [6]
  5. Don Smith Prentice, b. 5 Feb 1828. He appears in the 1880 New Hartford, Oneida, NY census with his wife, Caroline, b. c. 1833, NY, and children:
    1. Delamot Prentice, b. c. 1867, NY. Not in 1920 census.
    2. Carrie Prentice, b. c. 1875, NY.
    Also living with the family was Lorin Tillson, Father in Law, b. c. 1808, NY.
  6. William Ledyard P.Prentice, b. 30 Jan 1830. He appears in the 1880 census in Otsego, Otsego Co., NY with his wife, Mary A., b. c. 1833, NY. No children are shown.
  7. Phebe Prentice.

4. Son Prentiss, age 10-16 and b. 1804-1810. Subject to verification, he is likely the Nathan Prentice who later appears in the 1830 census in Burlington, Otsego Co., NY as age 20-30 and b. 1800-1810 with his wife, age 20-30 and b. c. 1800-1810. Also living with them is an older female, age 60-70 and b. c. 1760-70 who might be either the mother of Nathan or Nathan's wife, and son:

  1. Son Prentice, age 0-5 and b. 1825-40

Nathan is also probably the Nathan Prentiss who appears in the 1850 census in Burlington as b. c. 1803, NY, with his wife, Hannah, b. 1803, NY. Not shown in later census records. Also shown in that 1850 census are:

  1. Nathan Prentiss, b. c. 1832, NY. . . . . . . . . . . . [7]
  2. David Prentiss, b. c. 1848, NY, either a son or grandson of the 1803 Nathan and Hannah. Not in 1860, 1870 or 1880 census.

5. Luke P. Prentice, b. Oct 1817, NY (per 1900 census) and d. after 1900 when he appeared in the Carthage, Hancock Co., IL census at age 82. . He is probably the Luke P. Prentice who m. Christina L. Hall on 15 Jun 1847 in Hancock Co., IL. She was b. 1821 and d. 1854 and is also bur. in the Historic Nauvoo Cemetery, Nauvoo, IL. 1870 census in Nauvoo. Children:

  1. Lucia I. Prentice, b. c. 1848, IL. She m. William H. Walters on 1 May 1871 in Hancock Co., IL. He was b. c. 1841, PA. They appear in the 1880 Dallas, Hancock Co., IL census with their children:

    2. Mary H. Walters, b. c. 1878, IL.

  2. Mary E. Prentice, b. c. 1853, IL. She is probably the Mary Prentice who m. James T. Gill on 3 Nov 1872 in Hancock Co., IL. She appears as a widow in the 1880 and 1900 Carthage, Hancock Co., IL census with her son:
    1. Thomas E. Gill, b. c. 1874, IL. At home with his mother in 1900 Carthage census. He may, or may not, be the Thomas Gill. b. c. 1874, IL, shown in the 1910 census in Devils Lake, Ramsey Co., ND with his wife, Margaret, b. c. 1876, and children:
      1. William Gill, b. c. 1905, ND
      2. James T.(?) Gill, b. c. 1907, ND.
      Thomas does not appear in the 1920 census. He may, or may not, be the Thomas E. Gill, b. c. 1874, IL, shown in the 1930 census in Los Angeles, CA, with his wife, Myla F., b. c. 1874, IN, and son:
      1. James R. Gill, b. c. 1910, CO.

  3. William H. Prentice, b. c. 1857, IL. He appears in the 1900 census in La Belle, Lewis Co., MO, with his wife of 4 years, Elizabeth M., b. Jul 1867, IL. For children, see next paragaph about the children of Luke T/P Prentice.
  4. Ella Prentice, b. c. 1862, IL.
  5. Ada/Adda Prentice, b. c. 1863, IL.

He is likely the Luke T/P Prentice, shown in the IL Marriage Index, who m. Lydia A. Belt on 9 Jan 1856 in Knox Co., IL (per IL Marriage Index) which was about 2 years after the death of Luke's first wife, Christina. Lydia was b. c. 1826, MD. They appear in the 1860 Sonora, Hancock, IL census and the 1880 Carthage, Hancock, IL census. Children (per 1860 and 1880 census):

  1. William H. Prentice, b. Jan 1857, IL. At home in 1880 census. He appears in the 1900, 1910 and 1920 census in La Belle, Lewis Co., MO, with his wife of 4 years, Elizabeth M., b. Jul 1867, IL. Not in 1930 census. Children per 1910 census:

    3. Matthew A. Prentice, b. c. 1904, MO. He is probably the "Allen Prentice," b. c. 1905, shown at home in 1920. Not in 1930 census. Not in SSDI.

  2. Ella Prentice, b. c. 1862, IL. At home in 1880 census.
  3. Adda Prentice, b. Jul 1865, IL. She m John W. Wllliams, b Nov 1865, IL. In the 1900 census they are living with her father, Luke, in Carthage, Hancock Co., IL with daughter:
    1. Miriam E. Williams, b. Nov 1896, IL.

6. Truman Prentice, b. 11 Jul 1824, NY. Not in 1870 census. Although additional investigation is needed for confirmation, he may be the same person as the Truman Prentice who appears in the 1860 census in Clinton Co., PA, as b. c. 1826 in NY with his wife, Elizabeth, b. c. 1826, PA. He is probably the same Truman Prentis who appears in the 1880 census in Sterling Run, Cameron Co., PA. Children:

  1. William Prentice, b. c. 1849, PA. Not in 1870 census. He does appear in the 1880 census in Sterling Run, Cameron Co., PA, working at a Tannery, and with his wife, Margarette, b. c. 1845, PA. Not in 1920 census. Children (per 1880 census):
    1. Ella Prentice, b. c. 1873, PA.
    2. Charles Prentice, b. c. 1877, PA. He may, or may not, be the Charles Prentice shown in the 1920 census in Baltimore, MD, b. c. 1878, PA and living with his sister, Cora, b. c. 1880, MD. If the same person, then Cora would be a daughter of William b. after the 1880 census and who had moved to MD in 1880. However, William does not appear at all in the 1920 census.
  2. John L. Prentice, b. c. 1852, PA. At home in 1880. Not in 1920 census.
  3. Mary C.(?) Prentice b. c. 1853, PA. At home in 1880.
  4. Amelia Prentice, b. c. 1865, PA. Not at home in 1880.
  5. Marcus E. Prentice, b. c. 1859. PA. Not in 1870 census. At home in 1880. Not in 1920 or 1930 census.

Also shown in Truman's home in the 1880 census in Sterling Run, Cameron Co., PA are:

  1. Robery Littlefield, son in law, b. c. 1844,
  2. Robert L. Littlefield, grandson, b. c. 1872. Not in 1920 census.
  3. William Littlefield, grandson, b. c. 1874. Not in 1920 census.
  4. Truman Prentice, grandson, b. c. 1875, PA. . . . . . . [8]

It is improbable that Amelia Prentice, b. 1865, is the mother of the Littlefield children. It is more likely that Truman had another daughter, b. before 1849, who did not appear in the 1860 census, who m. Robert Littlefield.

7. Nathan Prentiss , b. c. 1832, NY. He appears as in the 1860 census in Norwich, Chenango Co., NY, in the 1870 census in New Berlin, Chenango Co., NY, and in the 1880 census in New Berlin, Chenango Co., NY..

He m. Fannie F., b. c. 1826, NY, and children:

  2. Uriah Prentice, b. c. 1859, NY. Not home in 1870 census and not in 1870 and later census..
  3. Albertus Prentice, b. c. 1861, NY. At home in 1880 census and called "Burt." Not in 1900 or 1910 census.

8. Truman Prentice, b. c. 1875, PA. He might be the son of William Prentice, #3i, above. Truman appears in the 1920 census in Buffalo, Erie Co., NY, with his wife, Mary, b. c. 1876, PA, and children:

  1. Eva Prentice, b. c. 1899, PA.
  2. Rose Prentice, b. c. 1901, PA.
  3. John J. Prentice, b. c. 1909, NY. He appears in the 1930 census in Buffalo, Erie Co., NY as "John Prentis" with his wife, Bertha, b. c. 1909, NY. He is likely the John Prentis shown in the SSDI as b. 1 Oct 1908, who obtained his SS# in Maryland, and who d. Jul 1971 at an unspecified location. Children per 1930 census:
    1. Alice R. Prentis, b. c. 1927, Buffalo, Erie Co., NY.
    2. Truman Prentis, b. c. 1929, Buffalo, Erie Co., NY.

  2. Lodusky(?) Prentice, b. c. 1879, NY.
  3. Harry W. Prentice, b. c. 1901-02 (per 1920 census). . . . . . . [10]

  2. Warren Prentice of Milford. Not in SSDI.

11. Stanley F. Prentice, b. 3 Jun 1930, New Berlin, NY. His obituary in The Daily Star, Oneonta, Otsego Co., NY, reads as follows:

    "PITTSFIELD — Stanley Fred Prentice, 69, of Pittsfield, died April 19, 2000, at home in Pittsfield, after a long battle with cancer. He was born June 3, 1930, in New Berlin, the son of Harry W.

Who are the parents of Nathaniel and Henry Prentice?

There are several possibilities as to the identity of the parents of Nathaniel and Henry:

Thomas Prentice of Stonington, CT.

Thomas Prentice Sr. is identified in Binney's 1883 edition, at page 334, as "of Stonington, CT" but does not give a birth date or birth place. Working backward from the 1786 birth of his son, Thomas Jr., this Thomas Sr. was probably born between 1736 and 1760. It seems likely, therefore, that Thomas Sr. is the same person as the Thomas Prentice who is #8v, pg 171, born 7 Apr 1743 at Stonington, CT. However, additional investigation is needed for confirmation.

Thomas Sr. may have married Martha E. Stanton and died about 1786-9 (see the Denison genealogy, pg. 344) but that has not yet been confirmed.

Thomas Sr. may also be the Thomas Prentice shown in the 1790 Middletown, Ulster Co., NY census with a wife, 2 sons under 16, 2 sons over 16, and 4 daughters. He might also be be the Thomas Prentice shown in the 1800 Oneida Co., NY census with a wife, 2 sons born 1774-84, a daughter born 1774-84, and a daughter born 1784-90.

If he did marry Martha E. Stanton, above, then he might be the father of Stanton Prentice discussed in our Fall '97 Newsletter as well as the father of Nathaniel and Henry.

Thomas Prentice Jr., his son, was born 25 Nov 1786. He was adopted and brought up by Rev. Jedediah Randall and wife (his uncle and his aunt who was probably Thomas Sr.'s sister, Esther). Thomas Jr. moved to Norwich, Chenango Co., NY and settled on a farm near Norwich. On 15 Mar 1810 he married Sally York of Brookfield, NY, born 29 Oct 1787. The only THOMAS of Stonington in a suitable time frame to be the father of the 1786 THOMAS for whom Binney had not identified as having a family was the 1743 THOMAS. This is a circumstance lending some support to the idea that Thomas Sr. died living a widow with young children.

What happened the THOMAS of Middletown? He is not there in 1800, and the only THOMAS in the 1800 NY census lives in Oneida County.

One factor seeming to suggest the Middletown THOMAS is the 1743 THOMAS is the mention in Binney’s 1883 book that the 1786 THOMAS was adopted and brought up by his aunt and uncle. That would be consistent with a hypothesis that the Middletown THOMAS died after the 1790 census (when the 1786 THOMAS was only 4) and his children being thereafter adopted by others.

However, lest we get carried away with the theory about THOMAS PRENTICE of Middletown dying after 1790, the 1800 census index lists a THOMAS PRENTICE in Oneida County, 00201-01101, signifying: - parents, over 45, born before 1755 - two son, age 16-26, born 1774-84 - a daughter, age 16-26, born 1774-84 - a daughter, age 10-16, born 1784-90

That family is not inconsistent with that of the Middletown THOMAS 10 years earlier (born in 1743, he would have been only 57 in 1800) if one allows for possible marriages and deaths of children in the earlier family.

We have not yet identified the Oneida County THOMAS. Even if it is the same family, that wouldn’t necessarily preclude HENRY’S mother from being widowed at the time she moved to Burlington Flats (which lies only 15 miles or so south of Utica, Oneida County) at some unknown date before HENRY’S marriage in 1812 in Burlington.

Joseph and Hannah Prentice of Preston, CT:

If Nathaniel/Nathen and Henry were born at Preston, they would likely be descendants of Joseph & Hannah (Chesebrough) Prentice, the proginators of all the Prentices born at Preston. The following descendants of theirs could be the parents of Nathaniel and Henry:

  • 1. Elihu Prentice Jr., b. 6 Sep 1743 and son of Joseph's son, Elihu Sr. (See our Prentice book, pg. 263, #8iii.) No marriage or death is presently known for him. However, Elihu Jr. did have at least two brothers, Jamison and Nathaniel, who had moved to Hampton Co., MA by 1780; if Elihu Jr. accompanied them, then he would not be the parent in question.

  • 2. Ephraim Prentice, b. 22 Jul 1749 and son of Joseph's son, Joseph. (Prentice book, pg. 262, #6ix.) No marriage or death is presently known for him. However, he too had siblings that moved to Hampton Co., MA before 1787; if Ephraim accompanied them, then he would not be the parent in question.

  • 3. Ephraim Prentice, b. 27 Aug 1752, son of Joseph's son, Nathaniel. (Prentice book, pg. 269, #29.) No marriage or death is presently known for him. However, his parents and at least some of his brothers moved to Shaftsbury, Bennington Co., VT before 1787; if Ephraim accompanied them, then he would not be the parent in question.

  • 4. Samuel Prentice, b. 4 Oct 1749, son of Joseph's son, Elihu Sr. (Prentice book, pg. 273, #37.) He married Ann/Anne Benjamin on 29 Aug 1771 in Preston. We presently show ownly a daughter for him, Abigail, b. 12 Nov 1772. An Abigail Prentice married Jonathan Hart in Preston on 10 Dec 1795, but it is not confirmed that it is the same Abigail. However, it is her, that would indicate her father, Samuel, was still living in Preston in 1787 and likely had more children, names not yet known.
