Thomas Prentice of Rhode Island

Do you have the new PRENTICE eBook?
Thomas Prentice of Rhode Island
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Fall 1998 and Revised 3 Oct 2008

Update of 3 Oct 2008: See now our Spring 2006 article about Thomas Prentice of England and Rhode Island, USA . That material replaces this article.

Thomas Prentice of Rhode Island appears in our new PRENTICE book on pages 451 and 452.
It is based on Binney's 1883 Edition. Unfortunately there are almost no dates and
places for births, marriages and deaths. If you have any additional information about
those folks, we would surely like to hear from you.
