Birth: May 23, 1859

Death: Nov. 21, 1925

Harry Llewellyn Kent was born at LaFayette, Indiana, May 23, 1869, and departed this life at the home of his mother-in-law, Mrs. Mary Pfaff at Cuba, Kansas, November 21, 1925, being aged at the time of his death 66 years, 5 months, and 28 days.

He came with his parents to Jefferson township, Republic County, Kansas in 1873, when he was 14 years of age. With his parents he settled on a farm, which was his home for 52 years, and which he loved as few men loved the farm and homes. His love for the farm made him an unsuually (sic) successful farmer. It is said he knew the ages of perhaps a hundred trees that he himself had set out from time to time on his farm. A man who loves nature this way must love God.
On October 25, 1885, he was united in marriage to Louisa Christina Pfaff who survives him. To this union three children were born, twin boys who died in infancy, and a daughter, Mary Magdalene, now Mrs. Dan Brown of Offerle, Kansas, who with her husband and son, Harry Brown, came shortly after Mr. Kent's death.

He was a member of the Masonic Fraternity, both the Blue Lodge and Chapter. He was a real Mason; for he lived up to the vows of the order, and he was loved and respected by the brethen. He was a good neighbor, and was always willing to lend a helping hand when the opportunity offered, and he did not wait for the opportunity to knock at his door, but would create the occasion himself.

He leaves a host of friends. While he was not a member of the church, he always took an active part in the Sunday school and church work while there was a church in the community.

He is survived by one brother, William Kent of Kansas City, Kansas. Funeral services were at his home at 2:30 p.m. Monday, November 23rd, conucted (sic) by Rev. W.W. Alverson, pastor of the Belleville, Presbyterian church with burial in the Pleasant View cemetery. (NOTE: He is buried at the Pleasant Hill Cemetery)
