Prentiss, Benjamin Mayberry Major General Benjamin Mayberry Prentiss was sometimes called the "Hero of the Hornet's Nest" in commemoration of the splendid manner in which he bravely and determinedly held his assigned position at the Battle of Shiloh, near Pittsburg Landing, in Tennessee, on April 5th & 6th, 1862. This battle was oftened described as the "Hornet's Nest". Prentiss, Brigadier General at the time, was finally captured, together with most of his command, on the second day of the battle. Benjamin Mayberyy Prentiss was born at Bellville, in what is now the state of West Virginia, on November 23, 1819 and died at Bethany, MO., on Febuary *, 1901. If anyone has any other information on this person, or how they are related, if they are, to me, I would appreciate it. I got this material from "American Nicknames" and "Reminiscenses of the Civil War"

Henry Hamilton Prentice, my great-great-grandfather, was born on St Kitts, West Indies, in April 1807. He was a ship's steward and his Seaman's ticket of 1846 describes him as "a man of colour". He married Ann Jane McKenzie of Greenock, Scotland and emigrated to Brisbane, Australia in about 1849. He disappeared in about 1863. We believe his paternal line to have been Scottish. Another clue may be the prevalence of "Henry" and "Clement Philip" as names in the family. Can anyone offer any assistance or advice?
