2nd Marriage--Mary unk last name.-----------Message received from: Karen Cox --I have in my records from my cousin, Lee Kent's research three more children of Absalom and Tabitha Hunter Kent. They are: Nancy Ann Kent, born 1767 in Fayette Co, PA and died 1862 in Griggsville, Pike, IL; Absalom III, born March 1, 1777 in West Augusta, Augusta, Virginia died March 3, 1875 in Macoupin Co, IL; and William, born abt 1780 in PA and no death information. I have no source documents as Lee had them. Lee passed away a few years ago and I believe his son has them in Utah. I am also doing research on the Kent family. My lineage is Absalom SR., Absalom Jr., John G. Sr., Joshua, Thomas Melville, Lewis Rollie, Glenn L. (my father). (May 2013)
