I've reviewed the history of your postings on Henry Harrison Kentfield and was wondering if you had the birth and/or death record for your Henry H., and if it shows his parents as William Kentfield & Achsah Mudgett. If it does the following suggests there may be another Harrison Kentfield, unrelated to yours. See the information below for what I show for Henry, mainly based on the source noted at the end. Your Henry Harrison Kentfield is a 2nd cousin, 5 times removed, of my children.

Notes for HENRY HARRISON KENTFIELD:
Author's Note: The Author is uncertain whether this Henry Harrison Kentfield is a son of William Kentfield & Achsah Mudgett, or perhaps the following suggests there are two separate Harrison/Henry/Elias? Kentfields, one a son of William Kentfield, and one a son of Elias Kentfield.
Harrison might also be a son of Harrison Kentfield (age 55, b. Mass.) & wife Phebe (age 58, b. Ct.), with sons Henry H. (age 18, b. Vermont) and George, (age 12, b. Vermont), who appear on the same page in the 1860 census for Fowler Twp., St. Lawrence Co.., New York, as the father of Harrison's wife, Andrew Turnbull. Reference: 1860 Census - Fowler Twp., St. Lawrence Co., New York, page 40, Lines 6-9 & 13-22.
Harrison [b. Mass.] & Phebe [b. Ct.], along with children Jane, Elias (age 17, b. NY), Philander, Henry H. & George also appear in the 1850 census for Fowler Twp. on page 232-233 [family # 114].
Per the 1850 census William, wife Achsa & children Martin, Ezra, Dorothy, Bathsheba, Harrison & Sandford were living in Cambridge Twp., La Moille Co., Vermont.
In the 1870 Census for Fowler Twp., St. Lawrence Co., New York there is an Elias Kentfield (age 33, b. NY), Phebe Kentfield (age 68, b. Mass.), and 3 children, Cyrenus, Emma & Jennie.
In the 1880 Census for Fowler Twp., St. Lawrence Co., New York there is an Elias Kentfield (age 47, b. NY), with wife Amanda & children Jennie, Mattie, Mary, George & Willie.
The 1850 census for Fowler Twp. also shows an Elias (69, b. Mass.) & Phebe (75 b. Ct.) Kentfield, p. 233 lines 7-8 [family 115]. They appear just following the Harrison/Elias? noted above. Elias, age 69, is most likely a son of Rufus Kentfield and wife, the former Mary Belknap.
