Who are Lawrence Fairfield Prentice's Parents?

With the somewhat unusual middle name of "Fairfield," and his Winchendon place of birth, it seems likely that he may a brother of Alvin Fairfield Prentice, b. 1934 (#2 in our Winter 2000 article about Harold Henry Prentice of Burlington, Chittenden Co. VT whose funeral service was in Winchendon.

Harold's wife was Vivian M. Oja who was a member of the Winchendon Church of God and whose obituary suggested conributions in her memory to the Winchendon Church of God.

Neither of their obituaries show a brother named Lawrence, so he might be a cousin.
