Who are Albert R. Prentice's Parents?

Some websites have mistakenly said that Albert R. Prentice was "Albert Golden Prentice" b. Apr 1859 in Grays, Essex Co., England. That is a clear error and inconsistent with his middle initial of "R." and in inconsstent with U. S. census records saying that he was b. in CT, with both parents b. in CT. Investigation is continuing.

I am Sheldon Prentice's daughter. Charlotte, Sheldon & Evelyn should only be listed under Charles. They are Albert's grandchildren not children that is why there is no record of them in the earlier census. From the 1900 and 1910 census, I can see that both of Albert's parents were born in CT but I have been unable to locate any records.
