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.

This old painting /drawing is coming up for sale. I thought he might be in the data base and some descendant might want to copy his picture before he sells. He should also be saved on the data base. The address is: http://www.auctionzip.com/auction-lot/American-School-19th-century,-Profile-portrait-of_77049E4A51/

I am seeking information about the ancestors of Mary M. Prentice/Prentiss (abt 1815 – 8 Sep 1874 Addison, Steuben, New York, USA). She married John Smith Lyon (abt 1807 - ?), son of William Lyon (15 Feb 1769 North Castle, Westchester, New York, USA – 1858) and Styntje Van Der Merkt (? - ?). They had four sons: Prentice/Prentiss George (1831 - 1901), Daniel T. (1850 - ?), Augustus W. (1837 - 1898), and James A. (1849 - 1888). According to John Smith Lyon's biography in a history of Steuben Co., New York, published in 1891, Mary was "of Chenango county," but the 1865 New York state census says that she was born in Delaware Co., New York. So far, I have been unable to connect her with any Chenango or Delaware Co. Prentice/Prentiss families. She and her husband lived in Addison and Erwin Twp. in Steuben Co, New York. Thanks.

Why is it that all written text that i can find about the Prentice family only says " some of the Prentice family member's moved to Ireland BUT this topic is not coved in this excerpt " So where can I find this family Does anyone here know Irish history ??? My Ancestry comes from that line of the Prentice Clan. from well know history dating from as the 11th century there was a small family with the last name prentice only 2% of all people with the last name can claim this family. I am one of them dating to my 2nd great-grandfather James Prentice who was born in Ireland in 1821. same as my post from days ago. what my family cant find is the link to James and this family since he was disowned for becoming catholic. my question is where in the world can I find the info I need ?? All history on the Irish Prentice's seem to be a biggest challenge

I am looking for information on my 2nd great grandfather James Prentice born in IRELAND (very important) in 1821 (or there abouts) and Died in Canada (Ontario) in 1862. My family has a full account of his life here in Canada but nothing before or even when he got here in Canada. Its like he never excited before Canada. We know as a fact he was born to a very wealthy family and grew up well off, but in his late teens be had a change of religion (became Catholic) he was then disowned by his family so he stole his families horse and sold it and with that money he bought a ticket to Canada. My family has been searching for information for as long as I been born (35 years) if not more. Anyone know where I can find info or have info info we have is James Prentice (1821-1862) married Jane Muir (1825-1900) Jane was married many times but had three children with James . Mary-ann. Dugald (my great-grandfather) and Daniel who was born after James death and died young at 18

I'm looking for information about my ancestors, all I know is that my grandfather was Fredrick Edward Prentice, sometimes went by Edward, was born 3/12/1886 supposedly in Syracuse, NY. He died 2/13/1938 in Everett, WA. His mother supposedly died giving childbirth of him and his father, possibly Albert Prentice, would not have anything to do with him because of that. On a marriage certificate I found from when my grandfather married my grandmother, Isabella Robinson on 2/14/1920, he listed his father Albert Prentice and mother Nora "Wooden" Prentice and in a census from 1930 he stated his mother and father were born in New York. I'm at a loss for any further information and would like to find any relatives that might be out there. I understood that my grandfather was raised by his aunt, possibly named Mary. My mother was born in Zanesville, OH so there may have been relatives there in 1922. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I've run the course of most ancestry search sites and am now at a dead-end. Thanks for any consideration!

My father was Arthur Prentice b. 1908, Uncle John Prentice went to Vancouver - I seem to remember Royal Oak Avenue, Uncle Bert Prentice was a policeman then a curator at the Natural History museum in Tring, another uncle was a chauffeur for Lord Rothschild (scraps from their kitchen stopped the family from starving I recall), Auntie Kate Prentice moved to Watford and married Harry .......? who worked as a bacon curer for ?Kinghams? Uncle George Prentice stayed in Tring and drove Green Line buses to London. Harry Prentice I was told enlisted underage in WWI - he is named on Tring's ROLL OF HONOUR - Harry Prentice - Private, 2nd Oxfordshire and Bucks Light Infantry, of Tring. Enlisted at Aylesbury.

Hello, I'm looking for information on the family of Thomas Prentice born around 1843 in Ireland to William Prentice and Margaret Storie/Storrie. He married Jane Conway in 1 March 1862 in Glasgow. He was on the 1881 census in Partick, Glasgow. He's listed as a ship's labourer. He's not with his family on the 1891 census. I can't find his death certificate but I have found one in Grangemouth for 1888 for a Thomas Prentice who was usually resident in Glasgow, but fell off while working in the shipyards in Grangemouth. He's listed as married but his wife isn't listed and his parents are listed as Thomas Prentice and Mary Ward. I'd be interested if someone knew more about this or had access to local newspapers, maybe his wife's name to see if this is the right person as the age and occupation is right. His children are James, Bella, Henry, Jane, Martha, Charles and Mary who married James Burns. I'd also like more info on his family in Ireland. Thanks in advance.

William Prentice b: 1821 in Biggar who married Eliz Cairns, is my 6 x Great Grandfather. I'm trying to establish if there was another ( perhaps cousin ) William Prentice born in 1819. I'm currently studying genealogy online with Strathclyde Uni. I'm learning to query everything. Across Ancestry sites and trees and myhertige.com and Family search.com, the year of birth for William Prentice/Eliz Cairns is 1819. Is this coincidence? Many families are listing his parents differently too. I need mine to be accurate. If anyone can give me any help, it would be much appreciated.
