I am seeking info on Hiram J (possibly Joseph) LENT b Mar 1832/unknown county NY who had a possible bro or maybe other relation named Frank LENT. Frank LENT and wife, Prudence had a daughter, Annie LENT b circa 1867/NV (Frank LENT and wife and child were in Esmeralda Co. NV in 1870 census). I found a marriage circa 1887/Inyo Co CA for this Annie LENT to a MC CROSKEY. I first find Hiram in the records in Inyo Co CA, Independence, marriage records: Hiram LENT age 43 m Elizabeth TERRIL age 21 in 1874. It says that Hiram states he was "married before and divorced in Aurora, NV." (This Aurora was then either in Esmeralda or Mineral Co NV.) But I cannot find any record of this marriage or divorce. I believe Hiram "married" one and maybe 2 Native American women of the Paiute tribes in the NV and CA areas around Benton, Mono Co. I believe he also fathered children with these NA women. Do not know what ever happened to Elizabeth TERRIL LENT. Please, please, please advise if you have any info on Hiram LENT. He died in Inyo Co CA circa 1910. I have read that there was a NY LENT, William, who made it big in the silver mines in this area. I have tried to make connections with my Hiram, but no luck thus far. Please help if you can.
