Who are John Prentice's Parents?

His parents are identified in Ancestry.com as James Prentice (b. c. 1845-1855) and Sara Robinson, but without any supporting documentation. The only clue we have for now about the parents is is the record of the 1920 and 1930 census showing that both of John's parents were born in IL.
