Jane JENTRY's parents were William JENTRY and Nancy THOMPSON. Submitted by Simon Curtis, Madisonville, TN 37354 This would be Morgan Pinkney (Pickney) Sneed and Jane Gentry. Jane's parents were William S. "Bill" Gentry, s/o John N. Gentry, first found in Buncombe County, and Nancy Thompson. (these families are in Cherokee County, NC, check http://www.goldenbranches.com/nc-state/cherokee for more data) Other children of William S. and Nancy Thompson Gentry were: Mary Ann "Polly" Gentry m.

Thomas Christopher Mills (I descend from this line) FROM: Diane Ramsey Miller ************************** Here's some interesting facts for desc. of Elisha Gentry b. 1746 researchers (long post) In looking for parents of my Allen Gentry Sr. b. 1792 SC who migrated to TN between 1820-1830 and then to MO by 1837, I found the 1830 TN census contained 2 Allen Gentry in McMinn Co - one referred to as Allen Sr and another just Allen Gentry. So while digging further into McMinn/Rhea County records this is what I discovered. It always amazes me the people who were in county records that NEVER appear on the census!! Rhea Co. formed 1819 bordered by McMinn Co, Rhea Co., Bledsoe Co., Hamilton and Indian Lands. First Gentry mentioned in area records was David Gentry who was a bondsman to William Rogers in 1813 in McMinn Co. This David was the wife of Tiana Rogers. They went to Arkansas with the Cherokee early and he d. in AR. Tiana Gentry then m. Samuel Houston. Here also by 1820 is Cain, the son of Elisha Gentry and probably siblings living with him. But who is William? Is his wife Neoma? Who is the Shedrick Gentry? Where did all these Allen's come from? 1820 Rhea Co.,TN - Taxables in Capt. Samuel McDaniel's Co.
