Hi! I'm looking for info on the following PRENTISS Surname: Henry Leonidas Prentiss married Rebecca Mayberry probably in Belleville, Wood County, Virginia on April 14, 1814. The result of this union is as follows Benjamin Mayberry Prentiss born Nov 23, 1819 probably in Wood Co., Va (Now WV), sisters were: Henrietta; Lucy; and Mary. Dates of birth and place are unknown at this time. I have found some information on Ben M. Prentiss as follows Henry L. Prentiss was living in Wood County, Virginia in the year of 1816 - See Tax Records on the rootsweb.com site which has the names of all inhabitants who were early land owners in Wood county, Va = Tax Commission Records of 1802-1822 posted on the Wood County website. Benjamin Mayberry, George Mayberry, and John P. Mayberry, Abraham Pennybacker and Derrick Pennybacker were listed also. The preceding names are all relatives of Benjamin Maybewrry Prentiss and his siblings. I have also, found that Ben's family moved to Bethany, Harrison Co., MO., date unknown. Later Benjamin M. Prentiss was found to have attended a Military Academy and that he assembled a group of men and took them to Quincy. Illinois for entry on active duty at the beginning of the Civil War. I am not really sure of my memory of what little I know or have read about him but, do know that he was given a commission as an officer in the US Army and later was promoted to Colonel, then to Brigidair General and still later due to his bravery and skill as a leader of men in combat was given the Command of a large group of men Regiment or Division and his unit was detailed to engage the enemy (CSA) at Shiloh battle, and was given the center part of the line of battle with his command which was later referred to as the battle of the "Hornet's Nest". His unit fought gallantly but due to the superior force of the Confederates he and his unit was captured. Ben M. Prentiss was later promoted to Lieutenant General. The LDS has some info on him. See Source Information: Film Number: 1903559 Page Batch # 8922108, Sheet #: 25, Source Call #: 12553474. If anyone reading this have any information on him and his parents and siblings please contact me. I have next to nothing on anyone other than Ben Mayberry Prentice. I need dates and names, and facts. Thanks, Frank Mayberry in Muskogee, Ok Email: FMayberry@msn.com USPS address: 318 North 'G' Street, Muskogee, Ok 74403-3469 P.S. I also, know that Ben H. Prentiss' first wife died and that he remarried and also produced serveral children by his second marriage. I need that information also. Thanks

I work in the office of the School of the Arts at Columbia University, NYC. Our school has acquired the Prentis building at 632 West 125th Street, New York, NY (Harlem)and we are trying to discover the namesake of this building. The building was originally a dairy in the early 1900's and during the 1940's, was used for the "Mahattan Project." We will be doing restoration of the building and we are eager to know it's complete history. We are not sure if Prentis was the name of an individual or a business that was located there in the past. Any information would be appreciated.
