Grateful for any help in identifying more about George Prentice who with Agnes Logan had a daughter, Jean Prentice on 10th November 1824 in the Lanark, Scotland records. The couple also seem to have had a son, James (23 June 1826) and another daughter, Agnes (7 September 1827). Both were noted in the Lanark records. Jean Prentice married my great grandfather Thomas Graham Salmon in Blantyre Works on 26th April 1844. She died in 1864 by when her mother (Agnes) was dead and the sole additional information I have from the death certificate is that George Prentice was a master builder.

Kia Ora I am looking for the origins and father of my GG Grandmother Elisabeth Prentice. She was born about 1846 according to census info I have. In 1851 she is listed as born in Shotts, Larnarkshire and living in Bathgate aged 6, with her mother listed as Elizabeth Conaldson (wrongly listed should read Donaldson). In 1861 she is listed still with her mother who had remarried, but as the step daughter of Walter Haldane in Bathgate still. To date I have been unable to find a birth record for her using her mothers name, birthplace and fathers surname. And I have also not found any marriage records between Elizabeth Baird Donaldson and a Prentice. So I am just hoping that someone on here may have some ideas for going forward or information. Thanking you in advance Clare

I am James Prentice Dee, Grandson of Helen Prentice and Great grandson of Thomas Prentice. I am searching for the name of the father of Thomas Prentice of Wellsville NY an the name of his wife(That I suspect was a Mary Ann Diehl 1811-1895). According to Ancestry Thomas was linked to Captain Johann Nicholas Diehl(1741-1863) of Philadelphia Pa. who is listed as my fourth great grandfather. I have received an Ancestry a connection that tells me Thomas was my great grandfather, I already knew this through the family, and then shows a Mary Ann Diehl(1811-1895) as the mother of Thomas. If anyone could Be of assistance I would appreciate it. I am going to try to find more of Thomas' Father and family.

For whoever is interested, I have today found that Olive Ethel aka Olava Ethel was born approx. 1892 in Exeter, Devon. This is according to her probate 1966 in Queenstown, South Africa. It also states that her marriage with James Prentice Bryce took place in Cathcart C.P. (no date) which I presume is in South Africa. She may have been baptized Ethel Maud White in 1892, daughter of James White and Emily Whitfield in Exeter.

According to your records James Prentice Bryce 1874-1958 was married on October 28, 1898 to Olive Ethel White (Tuppy)-1966 in Paisley, Renfrewshire,Scotland. I have not been able to confirm this record. If you have any details, in particular about Olive Ethel's age and parents, I would very much appreciate it if you could add some details in order to complete a family tree.

I have an old Prentice Vise #75. I believe it is cast iron and is cracked clear across the base, but my grandfather, who died in 1952, had put a large square clamp on it and it is still functional. I know if it is cast iron, it is a process to weld it. Just wondering how old it is, how much it might have cost. It is a rather large and heavy vise.

I've started working on my grandmother's genealogy. I know very little about her and her family. Her name was Gertrude Mae Prentice and was born in New York somewhere around October 17, 1895. She married my grandfather Harry Edward Cable on October 16 1919 in the District of Columbia. I have several photo's but can only pick out my grandmother. I am assuming the others are other family members. One of the photos has a Mr. & Mrs. William Prentice. but I don't know if they are parents or maybe an aunt and uncle. In the 1900 and 1910 census there is a Gertrude M Prentice with a mother named Anna or Annie with a possible sister named Alice Prentice (Johnson). I really don't know if this is her or not. My dad's first cousin was Marguerite Prentice who married a Dan Daddysman and lived in San Jose, California. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I am searching for information regarding Robert Prentice, a ploughman, b. ~1762 (one ancestry tree has his birth year 1785 but no other information on him), Scotland. He was married to or had a child with Agnes Boyd b ~1773. The child, Margaret Prentice was baptized 21 Jan 1804 in Dalserf, Lanark, Scotland, so born in 1803? I can find no other information about him. It's likely Agnes died while Margaret was very young as a Robert Prentice, also a ploughman, married Elizabeth Frame in 1806, a widow, later and had four more children, John b 1809, Ann b 1810, Robert b 1811 and Alexander Prentice b 1815 in Lanarkshire, Scotland. (I originally did not know of Ann until I found the other ancestry tree.) They would be Margaret's half siblings if it is the same Robert. Robert would be my 3rd great-grandfather, and his daughter, Margaret, would be my 2nd great-grandmother. Any additional information is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi I am doing research on my father's side of the family. His mother name is Leda Vir, her father is Theophile Vir, his father is Norbert Vir, his father is Peter Veer who was married to Mary Ann Prentice which is written in many different ways as you mention all things Prentice. I know she was born in 1794 and was married November 20, 1814 to Peter in Quebec. I am looking for her parents names which seems quite evasive. Some say she is from England, others say she is from the states and some say she was native. Any opportunity for some clarity and direction I need to take will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Irene

I am looking for the parents for my greatgrandfather Alexander Prentice born, I believe in Ontario Canada 1857, d Lake Stevens, WA 1936. I believe his dad was from Nova Scotia, unsure though. Also would like to know his mother's name and place of origin. I believe he has mixed bloodline of Scottish and First Nations from Canada. I do know he immigrated to US, state of WI in 1883 and my grandad name is Daniel E Prentice, b. 1897 in WI and d 1974, in Snohomish Co., WA state. My goal is to see if the First Nations blood line exists in my family as my grandma told us it did but didn't get chance to ask her more before her death. Thank you!

Hi I am trying to track a Prentice family who are in Rochford, Hockley, Paglesham and Canewdon. They are mostly labourers so not of the same social level as the main family on this site, but so close physically as makes it seem impossible that there is no connection. My connection is via Thomas Prentice b. 1809 at Canewdon, who married Sarah Heigho June qtr 1854 probably at Canewdon. His father was William Prentice who married Sarah Smith 1 May 1793 at Canewdon. I am also connected to 'sideways', but not related to, Tabors and Englishs at Bocking and Braintree, and via that line to Golden Prentice. It would be interesting to know whether there is any connection between the two apparently disparate families. Many thanks John

Hi! I've come to possess a number of photos of a family from SoCal, and a handful of these pictures are of Robert Arthur Prentice, Born 1921, died 1945. He was the son of Arthur Spaulding Prentice, Jr. I've been contacting family I can find on Ancestry and Facebook, and sending digital copies, and I'd be glad to do that for you, too. I purchased the photos from someone who buys old pics from storage shed auctions, and my only goal is to find as many people related as possible, because it seems very sad to me that these pictures are lost to the families. These are great shots of Robert, and I'm glad to have folks who are connected see them. I'm also very curious about the family, because I have hundreds of photos, and am hoping to find the connections between folks from different eras. Any help with that would be greatly appreciated, as I'm trying to tie in families from Minnesota, Oklahoma, Illinois, Iowa, California, and, apparently, Connecticut.
