John Owen Prentice

Fall 1997 and Revised 15 Dec 2008

Update of 15 Dec 2008: John Owen Prentis is #205 in our Thomas Prentice eBook. That material now replaces this article.

1. John Owen Prentice was perhaps b. c. 1855-60, perhaps in VT, or perhaps in IL. If John were about his wife's age, he was probably born about 1855-60. Not in 1900 census.

John married Janette Fry Pierce on 26 Nov 1882, probably at Mt. Zion, Macon Co., IL where her parents were then living. She was born 17 Jul 1858, probably at Mt. Zion, and d. 8 months later on 16 Jul 1883, perhaps in childbirth.

She was the daughter of Alonzo Pierce and Melissa Barrett Fry who were married 20 Mar 1848 at Scott, IL but who later moved to Mt. Zion, IL. Alonzo Pierce, he was born in VT; Alonzo Pierce was b. 30 Mar 1826 at Bennington, VT. Janette d. 16 Jul 1883. An Ancestor Chart for her can be found at Ancestry.com .

Who are John Owen Prentice's Parents?

He might be the John Owen Prentice who appears in our 1997 book at Pg. 205, #75v; he was born 13 Oct 1839 in Shelbyville, IL and in 1882 living at Coles Station, IL That John would be 43 in 1882 and she would have been 24 with John being 20 years older than Janette Fry Pierce. Binney's 1883 book did not show an 1882 marriage for John, but Binney may not have had that information in time for the 1883 publication.
