Abby and Henry Ebenezer Prentiss, Maine 1800's
Posted by: Sheila Sinn (ID *****7840) Date: August 13, 2004 at 21:21:47

Seeking info about Abby and Henry (or Ebenezer) Prentiss. He was born about 1801 in Mass, and she about 1807 in Maine, per census information. My family descends through their daughter Mary C, who married a Whitten.

The LDS site information lists Abby as being born a Rawson, but their dates and middle initials don't agree with the census info, and I question the accuracy.

The 1850 and 1860 censuses also list different names for him--one lists him as Henry, and the other as Ebenezer, so perhaps one was a first name and the other a middle name.

I'd like verification of their marriage and any info available about their parents. Thanks.
