Hi Everyone, I have been working on tracing the Ent family roots. Since Ent is such an unusual name and people always ask about the nationality, I decided to see if I could locate where the Ent orginated.
Well, this is what I have come up with. Johan Theobald Ent(Endt) was born in Berne, Switzerland about 1680-81 and died Sept. 7, 1765-67 in Germantown, Pa. He married Sibbila Stratton. She was born Around 1694 and died 1790-1808 in Germantown, Pa. They had 5 children. Their son Theobald was the father of Charles who married Mary Johnson.
Charles and Mary left Pa. and migrated to Shandon, in Butler Co. Ohio. One of their sons was Samuel who was married to Sarah Davis. Samuel and Sarah had a son named Charles (1820-1892). He married Mary Austin. They had 9 children. They leaft Ohio and settled in Ripley Co., In.
Charles and Mary's oldest son, William was born in 1850. He married Emma Raney and had three children Luther, George and Nettie. My grandfather was George who lived his whole life in Ripley Co. He was a farmer and deputy sherrif.
George was married to Clara B. Williamson and they had 5 sons. My father was Norman, who was killed in WWII.
Hope this information helps you.
