By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor

Note: This article has now been replaced by our later Spring 2006 article entitled Solomon Prentice of MA and Nelson Portage Co., OH .

We are attempting to identify the parents of Solomon Prentiss. We had thought that he might be the Solomon Prentice who was born 6 May 1781 and who appears as #57iv in our 1996 PRENTICE book, but the DAR records for that person show that he was married to a different person. Here is what we have so far:

A portion of Theron's obituary reads as follows:

      While a young man he was converted and united with the Methodist Episcopal church.

Ten years ago he moved with his family to Salem, Oregon, where he had since resided. He died Friday evening, January 12, at his home.

      A faithful husband, and a tender father, a consistent Christian has gone to his abundant reward. Brother Burr was a man of sterling quality, known in the business world for his ability and christian integrity, loved and revered by all who knew him. He leaves to mourn his departure, a devoted wife, one daughter, Mrs. A. N. Thompson, of Seattle, Washington, and one brother, Almon Burr, of Waterloo, and many loved friends.

They came to Dane county in 1845, two years after their marriage and were pioneers to the new country. They obtained a farm in section 12 and afterward moved to section 11 which they made their permanent home; Mrs Burr there died in 1892 and her husband in 1902, the latter eighty years of age. Two sons were born to them; Theron Burr, of Evansville, and Almon A., of Medina. Mr Burr was a Republican and active in politics. In Ohio he held the office of state deputy sheriff.

As treasurer and clerk of the free high school he has endeavored to promote its interests and has also labored for the district schools as clerk and treasurer. June 25, 1884,

    Mr Burr was married to Miss Violetta Thompson, born in Medina, August 20, 1852, daughter of Amos and Adaline (Muzzy) Thompson, who lived in Cattaraugus county, NY, before they came to Dane county.
