My great-grandfather Fred Henry Prentice was born on March 23, 1888 in Iowa. The little information I have is that his parents, Joseph Prentice and Mary Lee died before his 12th birthday. His father died in an accident and his mother died a year later. Fred had 2 brothers, Joseph and Charles, and 2 sisters, Clara and Nellie. Fred was placed in an orphanage in Omaha, Nebraska - possibly with his 2 sisters but Fred was later placed with a family from Nebraska. This is all I have to go on, I would like to be able to find our "missing link" before Fred's 2 remaining children are gone. Does this story sound familiar to anyone?

I discovered a web page that included a Prentice family from northeastern Ohio--based in Ashtabula and Lake counties during the mid-to-late 1800's. The difficulty is that I cannot now relocate it. One of the contact persons on this web site was James Everett Prentice, but that is all the information I have beyond some of the Prentice names included on the web site: Philander; Albert Henry; Herman Edwin; Austin Herman and Donald Austin, among others. Is anyone familiar with this site, or with the James Everett Prentice mentioned above?

I am looking for information about my great grandfather, William Prentice. The 1870 Shelby County, Alabama census lists William, age 29, born in Alabama; wife Dolly, age 30, born in Mississippi. I do not know Dolly's maiden name. There is one daughter, Laura, age 11 listed who was born in Mississippi. William was living in Montevallo, Alabama in 1870. I am trying to find out who his parents were, where they lived, if they were slaves or free. If slaves, who owned them? Were they born in Alabama or brought there from another state, another country, or Africa?

I've been helping Pat Shipman in tracing the ancestry of Adam Prentice in the Dutch East Indies. Following is her latest E-mail: "I am making a little progress on tracking down my Prentice in the Dutch East Indies; maybe you could post an update for me. If you remember, I was looking for information about Adam Prentice, born ca. 1857, in Java in the 1890's as a planter. I now know he married Jane (de) Clonie MacLennan on Jan. 16 1890 in Pasoerean, East Java; on May 21, 1892, they had a son, Gerard (or Gerardus) Alexander Prentice-MacLennan. I still have no info about Adam's parents, which I would dearly love to find. I have a suspicion that Jane is the sister of Th. C. MacLennan (also spelled Mac.lennan, with a period in the middle!) , who was the second husband of Isabella Mary Boyd. Th. (Theo?) and Isabella married on June 12 1889 in Toeloeng Agoeng (now spelled Tulungagung) East Java. Isabella is the daughter of Robert Boyd, who I was also searching for and who is now "found." Robert Boyd was born Feb. 2, 1828 in Batavia (Jakarta) Java; Isabella was his fifth child & second daughter. Robert himself was the son of a Robert Boyd from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, born ca. 1795, died Dec. 11, 1865, emigrated to Soerabaya, Java. Further speculations: Clonie, de Clonie, Cluny, Cloony, MacCluny etc. etc. are all variants of Scots names. There is even a Cluny Parish in Aberdeenshire. I know that the Boyds came to Java from Aberdeenshire early in the 1800s, probably when Java was under British control; it may be that the Clonie MacLennans and the Prentices did too. So if you or anyone else has a Prentice in Aberdeenshire who disappears" in the early 1800s and/or with family names of Adam, Alexander, Gerald/Gerard, I'd be interested! Thanks, Pat Shipman.
