Rock Springs Miner, Feb 21, 1960
MARGARET ANN KENT

Margaret Ann Kent, 84, died Wednesday, Feb. 10, in Sweetwater Memorial Hospital.

Her passing marked the end of a long life, most of which was spent in the Rock Springs area. She was born May 28, 1875, in Hayden Bridge, England, a daughter of William and Mary Nevin Kent who came to the United States about 70 years ago and homesteaded on what became well known as the Kent ranch approximately 12 miles south of Rock Springs.

After the parent's death a son, John Kent, and two daughters, Margaret Ann and Jane continued to operate the ranch for a number of years. After the death of John Kent, who served Sweetwater county in the state legislature in the late 1920s, the two sisters continued to operate the ranch until their healths failed.

The only two immediate survivors of the family now are Harry Kent who also is in the ranching business south of Rock Springs and the other sister, Jane Kent Rogers, who still lives on the old Kent ranch. Several relatives reside in Canada and in England.

Funeral services were conducted Saturday, February 13, at the Rogan mortuary chapel. The Rev. McCallum of First Congregational church conducted the rites and burial was in the Kent family plot in Mountain View cemetery.

Pallbearers were Albert Angelovic, Ralph Gilpin, Myron Megeath, Kenneth Ockerman, Pete Parker and Joe Radosevich.
