Who are Henrietta Prentice's Parents?

Only heads of households were listed in the 1830 and 1840 census, and for that reason she seems not appear in the 1830 or 1840 census.

Henrietta does not appear with the "Prentice"or "Sickler" surnames in the 1850 or 1860 PA census. One could speculate that her maiden surname was not "Prentice," that she had married a "Prentice" after the 1860 census, and that he died during the 1860s, perhaps in the Civil War. Henrietta then married Gilbert Sickler before the 1870 census.

That, of course, is merely speculation. Since Ancestry.com shows that she died 4 Apr 1892 in Franklindale, Bradford Co., PA, what one really needs is a copy of her Death Certificate. It should give her date and place of birth as well as the names of her parents.

This is my 3rd great grandmother. I've been struggling to find any information on her. A thought is that she's somehow connected to Thaddeus Prentice and Keziah Southwick. I've been trying to do some digging but am struggling. I descend from her to Charles T Sickler, Harvey Sickler, LaVerne, to David (My father). if anyone has any information that may help me along my search, please let me know! ladysickler@gmail.com
