John Prentice, Australia, 1925.
Posted by: Allan Fraser Date: September 04, 2001 at 01:13:59
  of 523

My great-uncle was John Prentice, born 1892 in Scotland and killed in an accident in Sydney in 1925.
His two brothers were killed in WW1. John also served in the Black Watch and then the R.F.C.
John was married to Annie Hamilton and they had a boy and two girls - names not known.
If John has any descendants named Prentice, they are the sole representatives of a family line which has been traced back to 1765.

1. Can anyone suggest how I trace John's possible descendants?

2. Is there anyone with enough time, or specialist knowledge, who could check out newspapers, etc., and find out how he died? A newspaper report of the accident might also have details of his family.
