Hi Vivian,
We are for sure from the same Prisk family. Children I have for Thomas and Honor Provis Prisk are: Henry Symons; Samuel, our branch; Paul,went to Calif in 1850; John Provis, m. Elizabeth James; Alfred, went to Calif 1850; Thomas Wm; Angeline, m. Valentine Cramer; Silas, m. Julia; Catherine, m. Gustavus Ekval;amd Absalem.
Samuel first married Elizabeth Mitchell, and they had Wm Harrison, your gr-grandfather. They were divorced. He later married Jane Oke, from which my husband's family stems.
Samuel was a wanderer. He went to civil war, served his term, reenlisted and served till the end of the War. Over the years he made 3 trips to Calif and backm and died on his way to the Black Hills to search for gold.
I have a lot of info on the Prisk/Oke branch and quite a bit on the Prisk Mitchell branch. If you owuld care to email me direct, you may do so at
Cousin Marion
