Who are Ted Prentice's Parents?

Since Doris was b. in 1926, it is likely that Ted was b. between 1920 and 1930. We checked the 1930 census to see what we could find. We located 2 possibilities:

    1. Theodore S. Prentice, b. c. 1925 in Binghamton, Broome Co., NY, son of Robert and Pearl D. Prentice

    2. Theodore C. Prentce, b. c. 1921 in Buffalo, Erie Co., NY, son of Robert H. and Margaret S. Prentice.
