I found your posting about Philip Zendt very interesting.I am a descendant of Edward G. Millet and Anna Christina Zent/Zendt.Anna was born in 1823 in Baden, Germany.She had a brother, Jacob (b. 1828 in PA), who farmed near Walker, Juniata Co. PA.Your posting shows that one Jacob Zendt (also from Juniata Co.) had a child named Howard Millet Zendt, which shows a likely connection between this Jacob Zendt and my ancestor.Do you know anything of a Zendt - Millet connection other than the middle name of Jacob's child?
The use of the name Millet for Howard Zendt cries out a family connection, but the dates given in your post for Philip Zendt (1831-1894) create problems.Philip, born in 1831, could not be the father of Jacob, born in 1828.The 1880 Census confirm that Jacob Zendt was born in 1828, and that he had a wife, Margaret ___ (born 1841 in PA), and shows a son. Howard M. Zendt, born in 1879 - all resident in Juniata Co..Perhaps your Philip was a brother or cousin of Jacob.
I have found (in the International Genealogical Index) a Philip Zendt, born in PA ante 1845, who married Mary Milhouse, c 1869, in Juniata Co PA.Since your Philip had a wife named Mary E. ____, perhaps they might be identified with your Philip and Mary.
I would appreciate receiving any information you may have that could clear all this up.
