Update of 5 Apr 2011: This article has been replaced by our later Summer 2011 article entitled J. George Prentice of Texas .

Update of 9 Jul 2006: Arthur appears in the 1910 census in Jacksonville Ward 8, Duval Co., FL as Arthur Brutus, b. c. 1893 SC, son of J. G. Brutus, b. c. 1873, TX (as were both of his parents) and his wife, Pallie, b. c. 1873, SC (as were both of her parents). A review of the original census film shows that "Brutus" is an erroneous indexing of "Prentiss".

Arthur's parents later appear in the 1920 census in Savannah, Chatham Co., GA, as J. George Prentiss, b. c. 1873, TX, Auto Salesman, with his wife, Pollie, b. c. 1873, SC. They do not appear in the 1930 census.
