    Are Horace Prentice's parents John and Caroline Prentice?

    The 1880 census says that both of his parents were born in New York. With that new information, and since he moved to Volney, Oswego Co., NY, we checked to see how many Prentices were in Volney in 1870 when Horace was there.

    Following is a printout, by family group, of all the Prentices living in Volney in the 1870 census:

    View Record 	John Prentice 		Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1819 	New York 	White 	Male 	
    View Record 	Caroline Prentice 	Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1818 	New York 	White 	Female 	
    View Record 	Lois Prentice 		Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1867 	New York 	White 	Female 	
    View Record 	Charles Prentice 	Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1861 	New York 	White 	Male 	
    View Record 	George Prentice 	Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1869 	New York 	White 	Male 	
    
    View Record 	Horace Prentice 	Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1843 	Canada 		White 	Male 	
    View Record 	Catherine Prentice 	Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1841 	New York 	White 	Female 	
    View Record 	Esther Prentice 	Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1852 	New York 	White 	Female 	
    View Record 	Wallace Prentice 	Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1856 	New York 	White 	Male 	
    
    View Record 	Susan Prentice 		Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1827 	New York 	White 	Female 	
    View Record 	John Prentice 		Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1852 	New York 	White 	Male 	
    View Record 	James Prentice 		Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1856 	New York 	White 	Male 	
    
    View Record 	Lottie Prentice 	Volney, Oswego, NY 	abt 1846 	New York 	White 	Female 	
    

    Let us hypothesize that Horace's parents are John Prentice, b. c. 1819 in NY and his wife, Caroline, b. c. 1818, NY. They would have been about 24 and 25 when Horace was born in 1842, appropriate ages to be his parents.

    The 1860 census also shows John and his wife living in Volney. Horace does not appear in Volney; perhaps he had not yet arrived, or perhaps he arrived but was missed by the census taker.

    Neither Horace nor John appear in Oswego County in the 1850 census; that would be consistent with both of them being in Canada at that time and with Horace being born in Canada.

    If you have any information which can help us identify the ancestry and descendants of any of the folks mentioned above, please contact us at dewald@prenticenet.com..
