Who are the parents of George F. Prentice?

Although speculative at the point, but based on George's obituary in the Chattanooga (TN) Times Free Press, his parents might be Fred Prentice, b. c. 1902, TN, and in 1924 a traveling salesman living in Chattanooga, in 1928 a Chattanooga salesman, and in 1940 living in Chattanooga, Hamilton Co.,TN, with his wife, Louise W. , b. c. 1904, TN. In 1940 they had a son, George Prentice, b. c. 1929, TN. They also had a daughter, Julia, b. c. 1926, TN.

The 1937 Chattanooga city directory lists him as "G. Fred Prentice" with a wwife, "Louise W. Prentice."

In the 1944 city directory he seems listed as "George Fred Prentice", a clerk in Chattanooga with a wife, "Louise W. Prentice."
