Rhea Gentry was married to woman from Putnam County TN. I do not know if they had a child or not, but I think they did.

One wife was Vennie Vadell Carr Shanks. Daughter of John Byrd Carr and Lucinda Johnson Carr. She is buried at Smellage with her first husband Fred Williams Shanks. I am not sure about the marriage date, but this may be the one you are looking for as Carr and Shanks are both from Putnam County.

I am kin to the Shanks family through the Maddux line. My mother is a Maddux. Also kin to many other first families of Putnam and White counties.

Good luck with Rhea and family.

Thank you , yes that is the one, it is not wide spread knowledge, but he was briefly married before to another woman. somewhere between 1945-1948

Rhea Gentry and the Shanks woman were married in Sparta White Coutny TN.

I cannot find a marriage date for Rhea and the other woman. It is believed, but not know for sure if they had a child.
If they married, then there should be a divorce somewhere.

I guess family history was meant to be a long puzzle. I have a couple of brick walls, I have been working on over 30 years, and have had some wonderful help along the way.

Thank you for writing.
Have a great day
