1. William Prentice was b. Jun 1861, either France or New Jersey, and d. 12 Dec 1941, 700 Mott St., Los Angeles, Los Angeles Co., CA. RobinsNest 2012 on her web page at http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/66050286/person/42147342458 says that he was born in France. However:

  1. The 1910 census shows William as born in France and his father in New Jersey. RobinsNest says that William's Voter Reg in CA states that be was "born abroad of American parents"
  2. The 1920 census it shows both William and his father as born in New Jersey.
  3. The 1930 census shows William as born in New Jersey and his father as born in England
  4. The 1940 census shows William as born in New Jersey, but his father's place of birth is not given.

William m. Hannah V. Stewart 1887 in San Diego CA (per Robin'sNest). Born Mar 1865, PA, per the 1900 census and d. 1951, bur. in Mt.Hope Cem., San Diego, San Diego Co., CA . However, the 1930 says that William was age 21 at his first marriage which would set the marriage date at c.1882 (1861+21) rather than 1887.

The 1900 census shows William and Hannah as living in Spring Valley, San Diego Co., CA.

In the 1930 census, William's wife is named Mary , b. c. 1866, PA. It is unclear whether this a 2nd wife, or the same person as Hannah since their birth years (1865 and 1866) are almos the same. The 1940 census calla William asmarried, but no wife is shown.

Who Are William B. Prentice's Parents?

We do not know the name of William's father, but RobinsNest 2012 on her web page at http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/66050286/person/42147342458 says that he was b. 1835 in NJ and d. in CA.

However, there is conflicting informtion in census records: The 1930 census shows his father as born in England.

In all census records, William's mother is unnamed, but is shown as born in the West Indies.
