Hi. Do you have much information on John Gentry? I am trying to locate information on a Walter Gentry. He married Margaret J. Connors (2 Jan. 1868- 17 Oct. 1957).

Where is Weaubleau, Mo.?

thank in advance

I am also researching the GENTRY surname, as it is my mother's maiden name. Like you, I am looking for a Walter Gentry, among others. I do not have any dates, but will share what little I have.

My Walter had two brothers and one (adopted) sister: Homer, John Raymond, and Bessie. It's believed that Walter was born in Kansas. There is some dispute as to his parents' names: Issac(sp?) L. Gentry and Cora E. (Parish)Gentry. "Issac" died in the early 1940's in Michigan.

I have found that sometimes it's easier to pin down an ancestor according to the siblings and/or children, rather than the parents. This has proven itself in extreme cases, though. Let me know if this information helps you.

Weaubleau is north of Bolivar and Springfield near Hwy 54 and Hwy 160. I have a little book about it's first 100 years. It's a very small town. I'll try to find info for you on Walter.

I don't have a strong connection, but my great great great great uncle was Charles Walter Gentry, born February 2, 1888. I recall mentions of an Aunt Bessie and the Parish family name from when I was a child. I am going to a 4 generation family reunion tomorrow. I have printed you information and I will ask my grandmother. Perhaps there is a connection.

Thanks for all the information. I have a couple of questions for you.

What is the source of your information?

How can Matthew b. 1824 be the father of John b. 1832 when he is only 8 years older? Is it a typo?

Do you have any interest in the descendents of David Allen?

jeff, yes, I am interested in the descendents of his that you can provide. And yes there was a typo!!!. US Census of 1850 shows Mathew b.1804 North Carolina, and on the same page is Thomas b.1815 who is probably his brother. Nancy his wife was shown to be from Kentucky. Marriage on LDS ewcords shows 7 Jul 1822. If you should have too much to type in for the descendents of David Allen Gentry, you could send it by snail mail. Robert Allen Gentry, 6256 Rockrose Drive, Newark, Calif. 94560. Look forward to hearing from you..

The second entry on the same census shows Thomas Gentry, who is probably his brother who was born 1815 in Kentucky, possibly enroute to Indiana. Thomas being child number five in the same family. pg 370 line 1 thru 11.
