In the 1910 census, a John Prentice, b. c. 1884(?), Ireland, was living with William and his family in Paterson, Passaic Co., NJ. He was called a Boarder but might be kin of some nature. Unfortunately the census microfilm is so light that it is difficult to tell his 1910 age and birth year.

Who are William Prentice's Parents?

The only clue we have for now is that both parents were born in Ireland. Investigation is continuing.
