Source:History of Fayette County - Sketches of Early Settlers:PHILIP FENT came to this county from Green County, Tennessee, about the year 1814, accompanied by his wife and five children.A native of Virginia, he married Catharine Parrett, also born in that State; thence removed to Tennessee, and at the breaking out of the revolutionary war enlisted in the American army, serving faithfully for a period of seven years. At the close of the war he received a military warrant for a tract of land situated in this county, and determined to settle thereon. Accordingly a party of about thirty people, consisting of the Fents, Parretts, and Fancheers, started for Ohio in four wagons, and at the expiration of three weeks, found themselves within the limits of Fayette County.Fent was entitled to two hundred acres of land, and before leaving his native state, entrusted an uncle, who was a resident of Fayette, with the selection, etc., of his property.The latter procured the land, but lost it through bad management, in consequence of which his nephew was forced to look for a new tract.He settled in what is now known as Jefferson Township, on two hundred acres of land, now occupied by Eli Parrett, purchasing but fifty acres at first, and exchanging his wagon for the same.Fent's wife died about the year 1816 and he survived until 1835.His son James born in 1801 resides at Jeffersonville; a daughter in Illinois. The descendants are thrifty farmers of this county.
