Hi Happy Holidays I am a decendent of the Absalom KENT who is buried in the Spiker Pvt. Cemetery there in Stock Township.Row 4, Grave 20. D. A. R. Record book indicates service, Army, Westmorland Co.. Militia [ DAR Roster III of Soldiers of American Revolution spells name as KENT, ABSOLOM]
I come down through his granddaughter Rebecca KENT d/o of Joseph KENT and ? , Rebecca married Henry ROSE s/o of Robert ROSE and Sarah or Sophia GARDNER?Rebecca married Henry on 12 Oct 1820 there in Harrison Co. township unknown.
My records show that Robert ROSE died on 10 Aug 1840 leaving a will of which I have a copy.Will executed Dec 7th 1840from pages 24,25 and 26 Will Book, Harrison County, OH. His wife is supposed to have died on 01 Mar 1852 there in Harrison Co. but I'm unable to find her listed in the 1850 Census.I have no idea where either are buried.
Also, Joseph KENT was in Green Township...he is listed on the 1816 Tax list for that area.I show that he died in Green Township about Oct 1829 and again I have no idea where he or his wife are buried.
Any help with the KENTs and the ROSEs of Harrison Co. would be GREATLY appreciated. Again Happy Holidays Tom
