Gentry Family
July 09, 2011 07:43PM
Searching for my gg grandfather's, James Milton Gentry, father. Per all the census forms, my gg grandfather listed his father as being born in TN. My gg grandfather was born somewhere in KY. We have been told that his father's name was James Maddox Gentry but we have no proof. This James Maddox Gentry was born around 1808 and married 2 times in Hickman,KY- to a Mary Carter and to a Polly Nichols. For the marriage to Polly Nichols it says a father's certificate was required. I assume this means his father was with him in Hickman,KY. If Maddox is my ggg grandfather and his father was with him in KY, then maybe his entire family moved to KY from TN. I would appreciated any help in solving this mystery.
