Jacob prime

Hi not sure where to post this but I need some help if any one can! My 2 x great grandad
Jacob prime 1848-1899 I can find him on 1891 England census and also his marriage in 1870 to Elizabeth Bailey. It states his place of birth as USA and his father's name John.
Can anyone help me or point me in the right direction of finding out where in the USA Jacob Prime was born/from?

I cant find anything before the marriage although he is on the 1871 census as Chas j prime and the next census is transcribed as Prince, on the census the family live in Tottenham and bethnal green and their children enrolled in school.
One last thing im 99% sure he was black. looking for a little help thank you
