I have an original studio photo of “Olive Prentice – teacher Wilbraham Academy – amateur painter”, which I would like to get back to family members. Photo was taken in Concord, NH in approximately 1880-1885, and she looks to be about age 35. Wilbraham Academy is in Wilbraham, Massachusetts.

I researched the name and found Olive Prentice in census of Springfield (Windsor Co.) VT, born in 1848, the daughter of Susan W. Prentice (born in 1814). Olive’s occupation was listed as “school teacher”, so this is the same girl as in the photo. Further research showed that Susan was wife of Henry Prentice. By 1920 census, Olive was in Gardner (Worcester Co.) Mass., age 71, living with her sister and family.

If Olive is in your family, email me at
