I have a scan of a letter from General Sam Houston to a James Prentiss Wall Street New York on 7 April 1836 If anyone knows what business James Prentiss was in at that time in New York, I would appreciate an email. I would be glad to share the scan of the letter and the transcription. It is very short, but it does have General Samuel Houston's signature. Thanks Sandra Smith Gwilliam

My Grandfather was Norman Jack Prentice, born somewhere in England on 1st January in the early 1920's. He died in 1990, he was married to DOREEN (of argentinian ice cream empire descent)! Norman also had an older brother EDWARD who was born in the late 1800's, as well as many other brothers and sisters who's names i am unaware of. My Grandfather lived in Birmingham, England for most of his life i believe and worked in intelligence during WW2. If anyone could shed any light on my family history i would be most grateful, as my father DENNIS Prentice passed away 5 years ago, along with my family history. Please e mail simon.prentice@bbc.co.uk

My g-g-grandfather, William H. Prentice, was born in New York about 1830. Came to Alabama about 1850. He married Eliza Jane Bates in Bibb County, Alabama, in 1853. They had one child, James Preston Prentice, born 1857. The family is in Bibb County, Alabama, till after 1870. James Preston Prentice stayed in Bibb County, Alabama, where he married Nancy Marcella James in 1882. However, his parents went to Hampton County, South Carolina before 1880. Hampton County, South Carolina, is across from Augusta, Georgia. In the 1880 Hampton County census, Peeples Township, William H. Prentice is age 49, a grocer, born in New York. He gives his father's birthplace as Rhode Island, and his mother's birthplace as New York. Eliza Jane is 45, born in South Carolina. They have a ward, Eliza Pulaski, age 9, living with them. This has been a brick wall for quite a while now. Any suggestions about Rhode Island sources and ways to get around this wall will be appreciated.

My interest is in John PRENTICE who married Ann MASTERS on 11 Feb 1828 in Priors Marston, Warwickshire, England. They had 6 children - John (1828), Ann (1829), Eliza (1838), William (my great grandfather) (1841), Elizabeth (1844) and Fanny (1847). All of these children were born in Priors Marston, Warwickshire. My g grandfather William married Theodosia BLAN(D)FORD (who had previously been married to George Obadiah SOFFE) and emigrated to New Zealand in 1873 (or there abouts). If anyone has any information about these Prentice's or about Theodosia Blan(d)ford, I would be very pleased to hear from them. Many thanks,
