The Prentices of Halton, Buckingham, England and Williamsburg, Virginia
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
f/Summer 2006 and Revised 17 Feb 2018

Introduction: This article first appeared in our eBook entitled William Prentis of Williamsburg, VA Since then we have discovered a great deal of new information which both traces William's roots back in time as well as identifying his many new descendants.

A. Unidentified Prentis. The village of Halton, Buckingham, England lies about 5 to 6 miles SE of Aylesbury and between Tring and Wendover. A search of the IGI discloses a number of Prentis births and marriages. Since persons of the same surnqme living in a small village in that time period were generally closely related, and pending further research, they are tentatively identified as siblings. The spelling of the surname is as given in the IGI, although the original spelling may have been Prentis.

  1. William Prentis, perhaps b. c. 1640-50. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [1]
  2. Joyce Prentice, probably b. c. 1645-50, Halton, Buckham, m. Robert Wade on 13 Apr 1668 at Halton. No children shown in the IGI.
  3. Mary Prentice, probably b. c. 1653-58, Halton, Buckingham, m. James Hitchcocke on 10 Jan 1675 at Halton.
  4. Henry Prentice. He had a daughter:
    1. Sarah Prentice, chr. 13 Nov 1698, Halton, Buckingham.

1. William Prentis. William was born perhaps c. 1640-1650 probably in, or in the vicinity of Halton, Buckingham, England where his children were born and/or baptised. Halton lies about 5-6 miles SE of Aylesbury and between Tring and Wendover.

There is no presently available evidence that William came to America, so it is tentatively assumed that he died in England at an unknown date after 1685, the birth date of his last known child.

William m. Judy, her name given in the IGI entry for the birth of their son, Henerie Children shown in the IGI:

  1. John Prentis, chr. 8 Jun 1673, Halton, Buckingham. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [2]
  2. Joyce Prentis, b. 1675, bap. 5 Sep 1675, Halton, Buckingham. She m. Robert Crocket on 31 Oct 1698 at Halton. (per IGI) No children shown in IGI.
  3. Alyss Prentis, b. 1679, bap. 29 Jun 1679 (not shown in IGI).
  4. William Prentis, b. 19 Nov 1682, bap. 22 Dec 1682, Halton, Buckingham (IGI).
  5. Judy Prentis, b. 1685, bap. 21 Dec 1685, Halton, Buckingham (per IGI).

  7. (perhaps Sarah Prentice. Her birth/bap. is not shown in the IGI, but she m. Henry Gurney on 22 Apr 1701 at Halton, Buckingham (per IGI).

2. John Prentis (William-1) was chr. 8 Jun 1673, Halton, Buckingham, England (per IGI). He was apprenticed to Francis Grace, called citizen and embroderer, of London for 7 years on 12 Feb 1690. John's freedom granted September 1701. There is no presently available evidence that John came to America, so it is tentatively assumed that he died in England at an unknown date after 1685, the birth date of his last known child.

He married Sarah (surname unknown) whose birth date is not known, but who died in 1708. Children:

  1. William Prentis, b. 10 Oct 10, 1699. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [3]
  2. (perhaps) Joseph Prentis, b. c. 1790-1800. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [4]
  3. (3 more children) Prentis

3. William Prentis (John-2). Born 10 Oct 10, 1699, bap. St. James, Duke's Place, London. Julian Prentice has provided information from the manuscripts of Christ's-Hospital which records the entries to, and discharges from, the school. The following is a transcript of the entries relating to William Prentis, later of Williamsburg.

    The admission ledger shows: April 1708. William Prentis, son of John Prentis Citizen & Embroderer born 10th October 1699, admitted from St. John Zachary.

      Note: St. John Zachary apparently was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1666 and was not bebuilt. It was King's College now is, approximately west of the chapel. The parish was united with that of St Anne & St Agnes. The 1851 London census does, however, show a St. John Zachary as a civil registration district.

    The agreement signed by both parties is as follows: To the Right Honourable, Right Worshipful, and Worshipful, the Governours of Christ's-Hospital, LONDON. The humble Petition of John Prentis Citizen & Embroderer of London Humbly sheweth: That the Petitioner hath formerly lived in very good repute but by great losses in his Trade of a Baker is fallen to decay and hath the charge of five motherless children the which he is not able to maintains by his imploy of a Porter without the help of charity

    Therefore he humbly beseeches your Worships, in your usual Pity and Charity to distressed Men, poor Widows, and Fatherless Children, to grant the Admission of one of his Children into Christ's-Hospital, named William Prentis of the age of 8 years, ½ there to be educated and brought up amongst other poor children.

    And He shall ever Pray, etc.

    born 10 October 1699

There is a handwritten (as opposed to the rest which is in the hand of a scribe) note attached which reads:

    This is to certify to whom it may concern that William Prentis son of John Prentis by Sarah his wife was born on the 10 Day of October 1699 in St. James Dukes Place London

    March 23 1707. Wm Prentice

The discharge ledger shows:

    4th November 1714. William Prentis is this day taken and discharged from the charges of this Hospital forever by John Prentis his father, and by Archibald Blair of Williamsburg in Virginia with whom he is to serve 7 years. Witness by the hands John Prentis, Archibald Blair

    (Transcribed from microfilmed records held at the London Guildhall Manuscript Library, 16th March 2000 by Julian Prentis)

    Note: One Benjamin Prentice was b. born 1668 and m. Sarah Havering in 1689 at St. James, Dukes Place London, and it me be that Benjamin Prentice and William Prentia are related.

The store at which William worked had been founded in 1701 or 1702 by Dr. Archibald Blair, in partnership with his brother, the Rev. James Blair, and their good friend, Col. Philip Ludwell, to open a retail store in 1701 or 1702. By 1719, Archibald Blair's store was a small frame building on the north side of Duke of GloucesterStreet. In 1727 Col Ludwell died and his share of the store was bought by the Blair brothers. By 1733 the store evolved from a partnership to a stock concern.

In this same year William Prentis became proprietor, and a stockholder, of the Blair-Prentis-Cary (a son-in-law) store. Over the remaining years of his life he continued to accumulate shares until at his death he owned 9/24 of the enterprise. If one goes to Williamsburg today, one will find the Prentis home on Duke of Glochester Street and, down the road, the Prentis-Tarpley store.

One story holds that Joseph Prentis invested in English tea that was thrown overboard in Yorktown, the so-called Virginia Tea Party, but proof is presently lacking.

William Prentis m. Mary Brooke of Williamsburg, VA, daughter of John Brooke and his wife Ann of York Co., VA. He died 4 Aug 1765. She was b. 1710 and d. 9 Apr 1768. Children:

  1. John Prentis, b. 1730. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [5]

  7. Elizabeth Prentis. Born c. 1752 and d. Oct 1770, age 18, unmarried. `
.

4. (perhaps) Joseph Prentis (John-2), b. c. 1690-1700. At pg. 113 of TPF is mention that "In the Jones Papers, the signature of a Joseph Prentis appears in 1721. It is possible that this Joseph Prentis was (William Prentis') brother and Robert Prentis' father." It may be inferred that Joseph was then an adult and born before 1700 and probably in or near London, England if the information provided by SharonSchutte's letter of 9 Nov 2001 is correct. Children (per TPF):

  1. Daniel Prentis. Born c. 1720-40(?). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [10]
  2. Joseph Prentis. Born c. 1719, London. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [11]
  3. Robert Prentis, b. 20 Feb 1740-41 or 1741-42. Died after 1807. . . . [12]

5. John Prentis (William-3), b. 1730 (per Irma Prentice, email, 27 Jan 2004, citing "VA Colonial Soldiers). According to "The Prentis Family and Their Library, John was Justice of the Peace from 1754 to 1771, Sheriff of York County from August, 1759 to July 1761, Mayor of Williamsburg for the year 1760, Judge of the York County Court, vestryman of Bruton Parish Church in 1769, and held a number of other public offices. He was named Executor in his father's 1861 Will. John Prentis operated his father's business until John's death on ll Nov 1775, at which time the business passed to his "cousin," Robert Prentis (see TPF, pg. 22).

"The Prentis Family and Their Library," says John married Betsey Goodwin. No children were mentioned.

6. William Prentis (William-3)., perhaps b. c. 1740 and apparently an adult at the time he was named in his father’s 1761

7. Daniel Prentis (William-3).. Born, c. 1740-50 in VA?2. At the present time, there appears to have been three men named Daniel Prentis in VA in this time frame:

	a.  Daniel (#7) the son of William Prentis (#3), b. 1740-50.
	b.  Daniel (#10), the son of Joseph Prentis (#4), b. 1720-40?
	c.  Daniel (#10i), the son of Daniel (#10), b. 1725-65?
Daniel is here tentatively identified as the son William (#3), but further investigation may show the facts to be otherwise. In any event, one of them is almost certainly the father of Lucretia Prentice who m. Solmon Carpenter on 5 Sep 1783 in Botetourt Co., VA. Daniel married Isabel (see Botetourt Co. Deed, Bk. 4, pg. 371 where his wife is named).

According to a 28 Feb 2003 posting on Prentice-L@Rootsweb.com on the internet by JWMSkip@aol.com, Daniel was in Botetourt Co. Va., 22 May 1770 where he had a survey done on 93 acres of land on the south side of James River on Potts Creek. In 1791, according to a 1791 Botetourt Co., Va. Deed (book 4, page 371), Daniel and Isabel sold their land to Samuel Dew. The sold land is described as on Potts Creek, near Carpenter's line, 170 acres, except for small parcel within the bounds, granted to members of Methodist Episcopal Church for a building and grave yard. Apparently it was at that time when Daniel and his family then moved to Madison Co., Ky where at least 3 of his children married there: William (#13), Mary, (#7v) and Daniel (#15).

Daniel is said to have died in Wayne Co., KY about 1805, but documentary confirmation is needed. Isabel was in Sevier Co., TN where she purchased 186 acres in Sevier Co. on 22 May 1810. Children:

  1. Lucretia2 Prentice. Born, circa 1765 and perhaps in Augusta Co., VA where her father is listed on a bond dated 31 Oct 1764. She married Solomon Carpenter, 5 Sep 1783, in Unk., Botetourt, VA2. An Ancestor Chart for Solomon can be found at Ancestry.com . Children:
    1. Moses Carpenter. Married Lavina West in 1810 in Wayne Co., KY. She was b. Jan 1793, KY, the dau. of Samuel West, b. c. 1770 (per Ancestry.com. Marshel Cunningham,by email of 27 Sep 1998, calls him a Rev. War soldier, but he would have been too young to be a regular soldier. Lavina was a sister of Susannah West who m. William Prentice (704/13) (per Marshel Cunningham, 10 Oct 1998).
    2. Daniel Carpenter, b. c. 1800.(per Ancestry.com)
  2. (perhaps) Zachariah Prentice, b, c, 1766-71. (See Pg. 785/1 and 787, fn. 5) He may have had a son, James Prentice, 785/1, b. c. 1793. Zachariah was an adult, living in Sevier Co., TN in 1813. James named his eldest son, “Zachariah.” Since the name is one of the less common names, the adult might be James’ father. In addition, descendants of James, like those of Daniel, also moved to Shelby Co., AL.

William m. Mary/Polly Geddy 5 Mar 1789 at Petersburg, VA. The following information is from "Kentucky: A History of the State," and we proceed using the information contained in that article.

      Note: this information, and information about all of his descendants, has been prepared and provided by Cecil Prentice Jr.

    Samuel was buried on Oct 20 1901 in Marshall Co., Alabama at Brashiers Chapel Methodist. Uncle Sammy, as he was known in the community, built the Buckhole Mill in 1880 located about 1/4 mile from the Ragsdale Falls. The power for the mill was furnished by a creek and transportation by wagon.. According to Cecil Prentice Sr., Samuel Wesley Prentice homesteaded a farm at New Canaan. The modern New Canaan Baptist Church is located inside the boundaries of that homestead. His house was in the clump of woods that border the modern cemetery's north boundary. Is known as the "Old Watwood Home"and is now owned by Clinton Skelton. ..Deed Book E of The Alabama Records on page 43 notes' "Page 219.

Sec 10 Tnp 7 Rng 3E"

    On the 1860 Alabama Census, his real estate was valued at $200 and his personal estate was valued at $760. Samuel was a hard drinking man who loved to fight. Cecil Prentice Sr. has one of Samuel's bills for one gallon of whisky. Cecil Sr. tells the story that heard in the family of Samuel having beaten everyone in the saloon in Warrenton, AL was himself beaten pretty badly by five King Brothers. May have been because of his political views. He was pro Union or as known in the community, a "Black Republican". The family always maintained that they had never owned slaves after leaving Virginia. We think that when things got too hot in valley where the secessionist movement was strong, Samuel sold his land and moved on top of the mountain which was mostly uninhabited at the time.

    He was a hunter, famer. and mill operator. Wore size 13 shoes. He used to laugh as he told the story of spending a whole day tracking a big man before he realized that he was tracking himself.

    He built his last home with a hidden entrance in the hall closet to the attic. An English side saddle, Pennsylvania rifle, blunderbuss, double barreled shotgun and other flintlock rifles were in that attic along with his wife's spinning wheel and weaving rack. Lost all when his grandson, Daniel W., moved to town and rented the house. Only one truck left when he died

    29. Carroll Prentice aka Caswell Prentice (Daniel-16, Daniel-7, William-3). Born, 1810, in KY17.

She is shown in the SSDI and her obituary as b. 11 Nov 1910, Hall, San Saba Co., TX, obtained her SS# in TX, and d. 3 May 2007 in Austin, Travis Co., TX. Bur. in Richland Srprings Cem., Richland Springs, San Saba Co., TX. She was the dau. of Willie Mae Bell and Albert Enboch Archer. Her obituary reads as follows:

          Lena Mildred Archer was born in Hall, San Saba County, Texas, on November 11, 1910, the eldest child of Willie Mae Bell Archer and Albert Enoch Archer, and she died in her Westminster Manor home on May 30, 2007. She graduated from Richland Springs High School in 1928 and majored in music at Hardin-Simmons University and Howard Payne College; she also attended The University of Texas. On August 20, 1930, she married Noble W. Prentice, who was then superintendent of schools in Richland Springs. She taught public school music in Richland Springs for ten years until their move to Sonora, Texas, when her husband became school superintendent in Sonora. In 1942 they and their young family moved to Austin, where she lived for the rest of her life. For all her 96 years she was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, “Nana,” and friend.

          Mildred Prentice was interested in education and music throughout her life. While her husband was in U.T. Law School in the late 1940s she resumed her music education career by teaching private piano lessons in her home. She excelled as a pianist, and she volunteered her service as pianist for many years at the Richland Springs Baptist Church and much later at Westminster Manor, where she played for Sunday Vespers for eleven years and in the Manor’s Health Care Center, where her music enriched the lives of its residents.

          Mildred was the consummate homemaker and mother. Her motherly duties began at age 14 when her own mother died, leaving her to be surrogate mother to her three younger brothers, and for the rest of her life, as long as she was able, she was happiest when she was caring for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a wonderful cook and hostess and loyal supporter of her husband’s business, professional and civic activities, and her children could not have had a stronger cheerleader for whatever they did. She loved card games, and she spent many happy hours with her bridge club or with her husband and their couple’s poker club. Rarely did she miss her Dallas Cowboys on TV, and she had great knowledge about their NFL opponents. She was a loyal fan of U.T. sports, especially football and basketball. But she most looked forward to her annual summer stay in Ruidoso and the horseraces where she became adept at betting and winning.

          Mildred Prentice was active in the life of her community. She was a loyal member of Hyde Park Baptist Church, a charter member of The Austin Lawyers’ Wives Club, a longtime member of The Modern Study Club, a member of The Austin Women’s Club and The Heritage Society of Austin. She and Noble Prentice were members of The Country Club of Austin, Headliners’ Club, Onion Creek Club and charter members of Westwood Country Club.

          Of all her own activities Mildred was most proud of her association with The Settlement Club of Austin, which she joined in 1953. Her proudest achievements there were the purchase of land on Peyton Gin Road, where The Settlement Home campus now stands, and the hiring of the first full-time director of The Settlement Home, both occurring during her 1962-63 presidency.

          Mildred was preceded in death in 1992 by her husband of 62 years. She was also preceded by her three brothers, Norman D. Archer, Girvice W. Archer, Sr., W. T. Archer, Sr., and by Norman’s wife, Tommy Ruth Archer, and by her husband’s sister and three brothers and all their spouses and by countless friends.

          She is survived by her children, Dr. James A. Prentice and his wife Dr. Linda Gilbert Prentice, Sharon Prentice Eisenberg and her husband Jack C. Eisenberg, and Linda Prentice Dill; by her grandchildren, Alexandra Prentice Saenz (Paul B.), Dr. Laura Prentice Masters (Dr. Joseph D.), James G. Prentice, Kathy Elledge Boccieri (Michael C.), Deborah Elledge Brown (Rev. Dr. Dale), Amy Elledge Carrier (Larry), Blake A. Pounds (Dawn) and Melinda Pounds Plante, and by nineteen great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sisters-in-law, Ruth Archer and Vera Archer, who with Tommy Ruth Archer she loved as much as real sisters, by her niece and nephews, Nancy Archer Ford (Jon), Dayton Archer, Dr. Girvice W. Archer, Jr., William T. Archer, Jr. (Sandra), Robert A. Archer and Ted Archer; by several cousins, and by her loyal friends and longtime lunch mates, Tura Hobbs and Rose Catherine Chote.

          Her funeral service will be conducted by The Rev. Dr. Ralph M. Smith, Pastor Emeritus of Hyde Park Baptist Church, in the chapel of Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, 3125 North Lamar Blvd, at 10 A.M. on Monday, June 4. Music will be provided by Mildred’s friend, Terry Heller, and her granddaughter, Deborah Elledge Brown. Burial will be later that day at a family service to be conducted by Mildred’s grandson-in-law, the Rev. Dr. Dale Brown, in the Richland Springs Cemetery in Archer family plot next to her husband and her parents. Honorary pallbearers will be her five nephews and Jon G. Ford.

          Mildred Prentice’s family especially thank her loving and dedicated caregivers of the past several years, Norine Cruz, Ruth Norris, Patsy Estorga, Kim Walls, Juna Gonzales, Liz Delgado, Nora Cabello and the late Mary Lupercio. Thanks go also to her physicians, Drs. Scott Ream, Terry Collier, Robert Pederson, William Holcomb, John “Chip” Oswalt and the late James E. Kreisle, Sr., for providing such excellent care for so many years that she lived very well for many years in spite of diabetes and severe heart disease. Finally, they thank Mr. Joe Snyder and his superb staff at Westminster Manor for providing a real home to Mildred since 1985 with many new and interesting friends, who continually renewed and enriched her life in its later years.

          Mildred Prentice asked that memorial contributions be made to The Settlement Home, 1600 Peyton Gin Road, Austin, TX 78758, or to Westminster Manor Library, 4100 Jackson Avenue, Austin, TX 78731.

      44. James Franklin Prentice, b. 3 Jan 1857, AL and d. 25 Mar 1924 in Marshall Co., AL. He took a train to Birmingham to have an operation. After the operation, he returned by train to Guntersville and walked 12 miles to his home near Arab, AL. He died shortly therafter from complications arising from his surgury.

      James was a justice of the peace, a deacon of the Brashiers Chapel Methodist Church as well as well as being the church's Sunday school suuperintendent and a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge in Arab. Seems to have been a rather inflexable person in view of the fact that he bannished his daughter, Millie, from his sight when she eloped with a man under the yoke of the demon alcohol. He never saw or talked to his daughter after that,

      In the "Arab Historian", an article stated that he owned and operated a griss mill on Beach Creek. The 1880 Alabama Census, Blount County shows him living in the Red Hill Community.In the book, "HISTORY OF THE PRENTICE FAMILY", James bought 80 acres in the 1880s from William Nabors and lived there until 1890, Sold the place to Rev. E. T. Presnall . The house on that place was a log cabin which was still standing when the book was written in the 1900's. James F. installed and operated a griss mill on Beach Creek powered by a water wheel. Sold the mill to John Teal. Sold his home place purchased after the home, to West Claiborn. He served as Justice of the Peace in the Warrenton Beat while he was living in this home.

      After the sale of this home, he bought a farm from Robert (Bob) Thompson that bordered the city limits on the east side of Arab, AL. His son Daniel W. Prentice inherited and lived at this place until 1955 or so. New Canaan was in Marshall County before Cullman County was organized. At that time, Blount County extended to the Arab City limit. Mr. Elliot, Union soldier, liked the area when he passed through it so much that he came back after the Civil War and homesteaded a 120 acres in Arab, AL.

      James m. Martha Jane Nabors, dau. of Joseph Nabors and Sarah Heaton Jenkins, on 7 Feb 1878 in Marshall County. Martha was b. c. 1859 in AL and was d. 21 Sep 1941 and was bur. in Brashiers Chapel Methodis in Marshall County. Children:

Thompson wrote in the Guntersville Deomocrat (later The Advertiser then The Gleam). His column was titled, "South Fry News". In his column dated 12/'26/1945 and titled, "History of Eddy", he writes:

        He continues later in the article, " The first school house was built about 1905, a two room building. The late Riley Nabors sawed the lumber free and gave an acre of land. The late L U (Bud) Slaton gave five acres of land and was liberal toward building the new school house. J W Cranford said " the first school I went to was at the log building at Gilliam Creek. Miss Mollie Simpson was the teacher. They built a log house near the home of D I Prentice, just above the mill at Eddy. They used the house for school till the frame building was built."

        On the 1900 Franklin Co., Al. Census that you wrote about he is listed as Alford V. Printis.

    55. Margaret Anne Prentice, b. 6 Mar 1842 in Baton Co., MO and d. 1934 in Mountain Park, Kiowa Co, OK. It is said that in Margaret's old age, she kept telling everyone that her name was Margaret Anne Prentice, unable to connect the Webber name to her own. Another family story says there was a small pox epidemic and John walked across the country to get vaccinated for small pox. At that time they did not live anywhere close to a town and it was a difficult journey. When he finally returned home, Margaret scratched the pus pocket left by the vacine with a straw. She then took a sterile needle and vacinated herself and all of their children with the serum removed from John. None of them contracted small pox.

    Another story says that after her one of her children chopped off his toe with an axe, Margaret grabbed the toe and took the membrane from a chicken egg and wrapped it around the toe and the foot and the toe eventually reattached to the foot.

    She married John R Webber on 16 Jun 1861. He was b. c. 1842, KY (as were his parents) and d. 1923). They are bur. in the Mt. Park, Oklahoma, cemetery and the dates come from their headstones.

      Albuquerque Journal (NM) - January 24, 2010: Dr. John K. Prentice

      Dr. John K. Prentice was born October 4, 1954 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Prentice's life was cut short on January 5th, 2010, in Boulder, Colorado, when he died from head injuries sustained in an accident [fall from a ladder] several days earlier. His wife was with him at the end, as was her brother, Daniel Fuka, who John loved as his own brother. John is survived by his beloved wife, Dr. Mary Z. Fuka; by Agbeli Ameko, who was like a son to him; by his parents, Glenn and Evelyn Prentice; by his brothers, Glenn and Steve Prentice; by his brothers-in-laws Louis, Joseph and Daniel Fuka & their wives, Lisa, Jean and Melissa; by his niece, Cassandra Prentice, her husband Mike Shore; and daughters, Alexandra and Olivia; by nephews, Daniel Prentice, Christopher Prentice and their wives Sara and Ambrosia; by nephews, Cornell and Luke Fuka; by many friends and colleagues; and by his two feline companions, Chisum and Luna.

      He was a physicist who possessed an infinitely supple and curious mind. John's scientific career began in his mid-teens tracking satellites for the Smithsonian across the northern New Mexico skies. Over the next 40 years he went on to explore a broad spectrum of scientific questions, pursuing projects in fields as diverse as computational physics, solid dynamics, quantum mechanics, medicine, biological physics and geophysics. Computers and computing were a unifying theme in his career. He often reminisced about carting 100-pound boxes of computer cards on the back of his bike between Sandia High School and the UNM computing center on a route that was uphill both ways and buried most times of year in ten feet of snow. His claims that in those days all computing was done by flickering candlelight were disregarded by most. Another highlight of his teenage years was his participation in the 1972 International Science Fair where he won a variety of awards for his project on calculating satellite orbitals.

      He continued as an avid science fair supporter throughout his adult life, achieving notoriety among friends and colleagues for his persistent and insistent springtime e-campaigns to recruit judges. John studied mathematics and physics at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, where he completed his PhD in quantum scattering theory in Physics in 1992 under the guidance of Dr. Colston Chandler. His professional career began early when he was hired at the Phillips Laboratory (then AFWL) on Kirtland Air Force Base in the mid-1970's to develop computer codes to model solid hydrodynamics phenomenology. He went on from there to work as a computational physicist for a number of scientific R&D companies in Albuquerque through the 1980's.

      In 1981 he married Mary Z. Fuka, also a physicist, sealing a love affair of heart, mind and spirit in a partnership that gave shape to their best work and happiest adventures. Together, they founded Quetzal Computational Associates in 1992 to provide scientific consulting services to the national labs, military and private industry. They moved the company to Durango, Colorado, in 1996, where it was reorganized in 2000 as Quetzal Biomedical, Inc., an investor-funded medical technology startup. They relocated with it to Boulder, Colorado in 2003. John led Quetzal as CEO to develop new pacing therapies and devices for treating congestive heart failure. He regarded this work as the most satisfying of his career. John's interests turned to the geosciences in 2005 when he was recruited to direct the Boulder-based scientific R&D efforts of Terralliance, an innovative technology-driven exploration startup. He also very much enjoyed teaching as a lecturer during that time in the University of Colorado's Department of Applied Mathematics. Most recently,

      John started TriplePoint Physics LLC, a consulting venture focused on developing new technologies for geothermal energy exploration and development. Beyond his love of science, John's life was fuelled by a passion for the outdoors. He was a long-time member of the American Alpine Club. He was a rock-climber, ice-climber, tele-skier from the days of true double-cambered skinny skis, and mountaineer who ascended peaks in Colorado, Mexico, The Pacific Northwest and South America. In recent years he most enjoyed hiking and camping trips in the Colorado Rockies and Utah's desert canyon country, especially if there was a little trout stream nearby to provide a pan of fish for breakfast (and perhaps for dinner, too). John

      We terribly miss his fearless optimism, the constant stream of ideas and conversation that flowed in his company and e-mail correspondence, his wit and enthusiasm for finding out what might lie around the next corner, his mentorship and support in all our dearest projects and ambitions. An online memorial open to all visitors is being established at www.johnkprentice.org. John's wife and family would especially like to thank Dr. Lee Nelson of Boulder Neurological Associates and the staff of the Boulder Community Hospital ICU for their wonderfully compassionate care of John in his final hospitalization. In lieu of a memorial service, John's family and friends plan to celebrate his life in an informal gathering in the place and season he loved most, the Rocky Mountains at the height of summer. For those who would like to honor him with a donation in his name, organizations dear to his heart included: The Central NM Science & Engineering Research via the STEM Education Outreach Programs at UNM (https://unm.securesites.net/give-online/fdn/); The Southern Utah Wilderness Association (http://www.suwa.org); and The Colorado Science & Engineering Fair (http://www.csef.colostate.edu/).

    Obituary of Charles "Duner" EsCharles "Duner" Eston Prentice Jr. b. 28 Jan 1923, Madison Co., AL :

    Charles E. Prentice Jr.

    BLYTHEWOOD — Funeral services for Charles E. Prentice, Jr., 87, will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday, February 16, 2010, at First Presbyterian Church. The visitation is to follow immediately after the service in Jackson Hall. At the request of the family, the committal service will be private. Dunbar Funeral Home, Northeast Chapel is assisting the family.

    Mr. Prentice passed away Friday, February 12, 2010. Son of the late Charles E. Prentice and Martha Charlotte Allen Prentice, he was born in Huntsville, AL, on January 28, 1923.

    In life, his family, friends, his faith and golf were his passion. Prentice was the professional at Columbia Country Club for 32 years, from 1955 to 1987. His remarkably long tenure was a tribute to his dedication to the game and the Club, and his abilities to teach the men, women and junior members. But he did not restrict his golf activities to simply being a great club pro, he also participated in the professional golf circuit at the national level. Charlie qualified for and played in 5 United States Open Championships, including tournaments at San Francisco’s Olympic Club in 1955, the 1957 tourney at Toledo’s Inverness Club, Oakmont in 1962, the 1964 at Congressional, and the 1975 at Medinah. Even with these stellar courses on his golf resume, perhaps his biggest golf accomplishment came at the 1956 United States PGA Tournament. At that time the PGA was a match play event, with golfers grouped by national ranking. The 1956 tourney favorite was Masters Champion Jackie Burke, followed by Sam Snead. The third ranked favorite was Tommy Bolt. But Charlie, the club pro from Columbia Country Club, defeated Bolt in what was described as a “thrilling” match, winning the final two holes to beat Terrible Tommy one-up. Newspaper accounts of the match said that the rail-thin Prentice looked like “a human one-iron, with a hickory heart” as he battled back from a three-down deficit at the turn and one-down after 16, to defeat the temperamental Bolt. True to form, Bolt threw a tantrum after his defeat, blaming fans and the weather for his loss. But golf fans of this area knew that the real reason was Charlie Prentice, and his skillful, competitive nature.

    Prentice taught and influenced a generation of South Carolina golfers, including Columbia Country Club Member and SC State Amateur champ and SC Golf Hall of Fame member David DuPre. Perhaps his best pupil was his sister, JoAnn Prentice, who became a LPGA professional and won 6 events on the Ladies tour. Charlie was elected to the SC Golf Hall of Fame in 1992 and has been a member of the Professional Golf Association for 57 years. He retired from the Columbia Country Club in 1986 as Golf Professional and continued on as Pro-Emeritus for the following year. Charlie was also a member of First Presbyterian Church and a United States Navy veteran.

    As a young man enlisting in the Navy during WWII, Charlie made certain of his relationship to the Lord Jesus as his Savior. He realized he might not return from the war. He remained confident in that personal relationship with his Savior through the years until his death.

    Surviving is his wife of 55 years, Margaret Cogle Prentice; daughter, Marchar Stagg and her husband David of Blythewood; son, Charles “Chuck” E. Prentice, III and his wife Nancy of Sheldon, SC; brother, R.E. “Smoke” Prentice and his wife Gladys of Leeds, AL; sisters, Marvleen Nunn of Niceville, FL, and JoAnn Prentice of Tucson, AZ. He is predeceased by a brother, William Wallace Prentice and a sister, Carleen Hodge.
