Who are William W. Prentice's Parents?

We know they were both born in Scotland, but for now have no further information.

However, we do note that the 1920 census also shows John Prentice, b. c. 1884, Scotland, also living in Slab Fork, Raleigh Co., WV, as was William in 1940. Whether they are related is yet to be determined.
