Biography

Daniel Prentice may have been born in VA or TN. He married Isabel Wesley abt 1765 in VA. Six children have been identified, some still need verification. [1]
Lucretia Martha Prentice Carpenter[2]
Zachariah Prentice
John Prentice
Hannah Prentice West
William Prentice
Daniel Prentice[3]
Mary Polly Prentice Walker
Only Daniel[3] can be confirmed as a child of this couple through primary sources. Lucretia[2] is included through a recorded marriage bond and the others through oral tradition.
Daniel Prentice was born about 1740 in Virginia (or Tennessee) and lived in Virginia most of his life. There are few documents recording his life, but the those which do exist give the name of his wife and several children. Around 1790 Daniel moved to the area of Virginia which became modern Kentucky. His death was not recorded but is believed to have occurred about 1805. [1]

Name

There are two men living in Virginia during Colonial times named Daniel Prentis/Prentice. Thankfully the men spell the surname differently, one P R E N T I S, the other P R E N T I C E. Many researchers are keen to connect this Daniel Prentice with Daniel Prentis son of William Prentis storekeeper of Williamsburg, whose issue distinguished themselves as statesmen during Colonial, Revolutionary War, and early United States events. However, there does not seem to be any close relationship between the families. Also, Daniel Prentis lives in the coastal areas of Virginia, specifically Williamsburg City and Warwick County; whereas this Daniel Prentice lives in the mountain inland areas of Augusta and Botetourt Counties. See Daniel Prentis.
