Searched my family records and found an "Extract of Entry of Birth" of another child of James and Janet Prentice: a son, Clerk, born 10 January 1855 at Glengowan, District of Larkhall, county of Lanark...

Just became aware of this website recently. I believe there may be a child of James Prentice and Janet Anderson omitted. My great-grandmother is Elizabeth Prentice, b. Feb.26,1847. She married David Wilson (my great-grandfather) in 1864 and immigrated to the USA. In the Wilson family bible there is a listing for the death of James Prentice, Jan. 9, 1870, and Janet Anderson, his wife, June 29, 1865. I assume James & Janet appear in the Wilson family bible because they were Elizabeth's parents. Since these death dates match your info, I believe Elizabeth is the last child of James & Janet Prentice, born in 1847. Would appreciate your thoughts.
