Who are Joseph Prentice's Parents?

Diana Lobdell had suggested that Joseph Prentice's father might be Thomas Augustus Prentice (TAP) of Armagh, N. Ireland (see James Prentice of Co. Wicklow, Ireland, #3 ), on the basis that her maternal grandfather, William James Craig (1887-1972) owned a ring which belonged to TAP of Armagh, N. Ireland. William JamesCraig's mother was Margaret Prentice (1863-1948)., married to James Craig (1862-1911). They lived in Killylea and Carnalea, N. Ireland before immigrating to Canada.

However, we know that Joseph Prentice' father cannot be TAP because Joseph was b. 1789 but TAP was not born until about 26 years later on 8 Mar 1815.

Diana Lobdell's email of 29 Aug 2009 also related that John Prentice of Clonghfin, Eglish Parish, made his Will in 1697. Again, his relationship, if any, is not known.

It is thought that the family probably settled in County Armagh from Scotland or England in the 1600s. (Sources c. 1975 family records and a research report from the Ulster-Scot Historical Foundation in Belfast, Ireland, in 1974.)
