Joseph R. Prentice was my Great Grandfather. My Father was Ralph DeWald and his mother was Florence Prentice, daughter of Joseph. The special tombstone depecting Joseph R Prentice as a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor was delivered to my home about three years before the actual grave site ceremony was held. During that time, I had it stored on its side under my bed so no harm would come to it. That is where it stayed until a special grave site ceremony was held which included members of the Daughters of the American Revolution and other high ranking officials.
