I am looking for info regarding Amos Prentice b. 4 Sep 1804 in Batavia, New York to John Owen Prentice and Rachel Swain; and d. 17 Aug 1849. He married first, Louisana Jenkins in Montgomery, IL 8 Jan 1829. Then married wife #2 Hope Henderson in Greene, IL 12 Oct 1831. The main info I need pertains to his life and times story and his first wifes genealogy. They were only married 2 years or less which leads me to believe that she died either in child birth or from illness. I have not been able to confirm whether or not any children were born from this marriage. If anyone has any info or clues, please feel free to e-mail me: paintediva@yahoo.com. Thank you!

Hello, I am trying to find Martin "Marty" Prentice. He attended High School in Lake Mills, Wisconsin in the early sixties. I believe he would be 61 or 62 years old. His mother's name is or was Anita. I believe his father was some type of engineer and may have been employed at Hamlin Inc. of Lake Mills, Wisconsin; I am not sure of his first name. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for any information on my PRENTICE line. This line was supposed to have been started by one GOODE PRENTICE who came to Cambridge, Massachusetts sometime before 1793. My G-G-Grandfather was born in Massachusetts o/a 1793-1797. He had the very unusual masculine forname of ELA. I don't have a correct pronounciation of the name, but since my grandfather was also named ELA, but refused to use the name, I suspect that it was probably pronounced like the feminine ELLA. ELA was probably the son, or grandson of the first Prentice. GOODE PRENTICE. I am trying to find out where GOODE came from, and who he married. I have my genealogy fairly well documented, up to the 1831 marriage of ELA to SUSAN DAVIS. So far I have not been able to find out where, exactly, was ELA born, and who were his parents Anyone who has any information on GOODE or ELA PRENTICE, please contact me. kadonna@networld.com Thank You

Does anyone have any information on the geneolory of "Prentice Mulford" The author. I am wondering if he is a prentice, I was told his mother was a prentice. I am trying to confirm. "Born in Sag Harbor, Long Island, Prentice Mulford (1834-1891) sailed to San Francisco on a clipper ship in 1856 and remained for sixteen years. This is his account of his adventures at sea and in the American west from 1856 through 1872: life on a clipper and a California coastal schooner hunting whales and seals, gold prospecting in Tuolumne County, accounts of camp life and experiences as a school teacher and minor local politician, copper mining in Stanislaus County, and career as journalist for the San Francisco Golden Era. Mulford was a friend of Mark Twain and Bret Harte, and this book ranks with theirs."

Prentice and Anna Dingman married in Noble County Indiana, had two children-Margery Ann Prentice(my gr-grandmother)b: 1846 and Charles N. Prentice.

Charles married Margret Knepper 24 Dec 1874, had 5 children, Raymond A., William L., Susan A. (Hyndman),Aura E.(Iden) and Violet A.(Kolberg). Charles died 19 May 1924.

I am a little confused and was wondering if you could help. Using http://www.prenticenet.com/roots/prentice/henry/#H19 starting with Henry (1620-1654), all my records agree until I get to Jonas Prentice, son of Nataniel and Mercy. The web site has 3 children Mercy, Jonas, and James. I have another child who I have in my direct line: Thomas b. abt 19 Jan 1752, d. 6 Nov 1800 md. 20 Jul 1744 to Ruth Symmes. I think this may be correct as also in Prentice net, http://www.prenticenet.com/roots/prentice/chcamb_bapt.htm I read "1752 Jan. 19, 1752 Thomas of Jonas Prentice, by Nathaniel Appleton [p.161]" Continuing back from this Thomas I have (direct in bold): Thomas (abt 1752) + Ruth Symmes Ruth (1776) Thomas (1779) Betsey (1781) Judith (1784) Fanny (1786) Joseph (1788) Thomas (1779) + Lucinda Bullard Harriet (1825) + Julius Ethan or Edward Fenn I was wondering if I have something incorrect or my Thomas in the wrong place. Any ideas? Thank you very much. Dale Smith 8th GGS to Henry
