I'm trying to find out who the parents of my ggreat-grandfather are. His name is Robert L. Bentley, though on the 1910 Census it is listed at Pamp Bentley. I believe he was born in Lawrenceburg about 1875. He is listed in the 1910 census and the 1920 census as a resident in Lawrence Co. He was married to a woman named Dora (Goodman, I believe) and had 5 children: Lurline (my great grandmother) b. 1905, Daniel b. 1909, Christine b. 1911, Leonidas b. 1917, and Donald b. 1920. He is buried in Houser Cemetery. His parents are listed in the census as having been born in TN.

Any information or leads on finding his parents is greatly appreciated!

I found my answer. I was able to get ahold of some distant relatives and found out from my great grand aunt that Robert's name was originally Pompay, though the family called him "Pomp". That would make Daniel & Eliza his parents.
