Update of 12 Apr 2009: Based on (1) David Prentice's 20 May 1838 birth in Etobicoke, York Co., Ontario, and (2) his marriage recording identifying his father as "David [Prentice]", it appears settled that he is a son of David Prentice (son of Oliver Prentice and Lydia Delong) of Etobicoke who is #1x in our Summer 2001 article entitled Oliver Prentice of Pittstown, NY .

We are helping Rick Prentice trace his Prentice roots. Here is what we have so far based on his 2001 correspondence:

Tanya Eades email of 25 May 2010 provides the following information about Parkersville. It reads, in part, as follows:

    ". . .I am interested if you have any additional info on Readman and if he played any part in the town of Parkersville. As he was born there in 1871, the town war hardly established, and I am wondering if he may have played an important part in the towns development. I have been collecting information about parkersville for 10 years now, and as there is little out there any bit of info helps. I am interested in the history because I grew up in Parkersville. It is now a ghost town, with very little remaining, only a few building foundations and small handfull of pictures. . ."
