I am kin to the Gentry family also; will search my family records and see if I can find Rhea and/or WIlliam. Rhea is surname married into the Gentry and Allision lines

Thank you,

There seems to be only a couple of people that acknowledge as him being married before and they will not talk about it.
My mom had 2 1/2 sisters that married into the Gentry family, so I grew up with them, but we did not talk about families, when I was a little girl, we went out to play.
Thank you and have a great day.
