Certificate from Genesee Co. Poor House dated 1895. Destitute persons were given to Turner Mortuary and appear to be buried in a Paupers Cemetery at the County Home if not claimed by family. I looked at County Home Records at county website. States age of 75 so birth 1821. Death unk. Developed a theory based on my family history and other know dates by another researcher. Believed to be the father of Arthur Prentiss Thompson, Jane Ann, Adelbert, and Mary Ann. Wife of Caroline Hanna (Matice) whose family census name is Mattice. His children were born in Orleans Co NY. Son Arthur children buried Wyoming Co. NY Punkshire Cemetery. There was a migration to Michigan for some (Jane Ann) and Arthurs son Edwin. Edwin is my Mothers grandfather. By son, George. Edwin lived in Schiawassa Co. MI with his wife Edith Wilcox of the Walter Wilcox line chatauqua Co. NY. Edwin and Edith married at Silver Creek NY 1903 and first child born in Michigan. Both Thompson and Wilcox are Michigan pioneer names so there will be alot of crossings. I hope anyone of the NY and MI lines find this helpful. I found in the 1870 census 53 y/o Prentis living with Sarah J. Age 38 with a 3 year old Flora A. I think he divorced Caroline Hanna (MATTICE). She is married twice later, lastly to CUTLER with a late child and buried in Michigan.
