Andrew Wilson Prentice and Reby (Riley?) Prentice, Hardin Co., TN
Update of 14 Jun 2009: This article has now been replaced by our Fall 2009 article of the same name.

Andrew Wilson Prentice appears in the 1880 Hardin Co., TN census under the name, Wilson Prentice.. He was age 17, born in TN about 1863 and was living in the home of his brother, Reby (Riley?) Prentice, age 25 and born about 1855, whose family consisted of his wife, Mary E., b. c. 1853 in TN, and children:
  • William N. Prentice, b. c. 1875, TN
  • John F. Prentice, b. c. 1876, TN
  • James M. Prentice, b. c. 1877, TN
  • Edney/Edna L. Prentice, b. c. 1879, TN

Andrew Wilson Prentice appears in the 1900 and 1910 Erath Co., TX census with his wife, Jane, b. Dec 1869, TN, and children:

  • Martin V. Prentice, b. Dec 1885, TX
  • Mattie N. Prentice, b. Mar 1888, TX
  • Clinton A. Prentice, b. Nov 1899, TX
  • Fanny B. Prentice, b. c. 1903, TX
  • Mercale Prentice (dau.), b. c. 1905, TX
  • Mack D. Prentice, b. c. 1907, TX
  • Clem P.Prentice b. c. 1908, TX

Since he gave one his sons the relatively unusual name of "Mack," Andrew, b. c. 1863, may be related to Mack C. Prentice, b. c. 1864 in TN, who appears in the 1910 Mitchell Co., TX census. Mack is the son of Daniel Wesley Prentice, a descendant of William Prentis of VA. However, since Andrew and Reby are shown as brothers, and since Reby was born c. 1855, Andrew and Reby cannot be sons of Daniel Wesley Prentice since the latter did not marry until 1862.

When was the father of Reby and Andrew born? Reby, the older brother, was born c. 1855, so their father was likely born before 1832, and perhaps as early as 1810.

Andrew and Reby may be related to the following Prentices who are shown by the Marriage Index as marrying in Hardin County, TN:

  • Ella Prentis who m. J. F. Beckham on 9 Dec 1880.
  • W. R. Prentice who m. Mary Franks on 25 Dec 1882.
  • W. J. Prentice who m. M. L. Rose on 16 Apr 1885.
There is a chance that W. R. Prentice might be the Reby Prentice and Mary E. who appear in the 1900 Erath Co., TX census. R

Also, W. J. Prentice may be the William J Prentice and Malinda L. who appear in the 1910 TX census.
