I am looking for information on the Dent family. William passed away many years ago and i would like to any relatives he may have had. He was my great grandfather, his last address was Mingo County, WV. I was once told he was of Irish descent.

.I never knew my great grandfather but his name was William Dent, and my father's name is James but he was a Messer however William was his grandfather. We are from the Mingo County area of WV. I know very little about my fathers family I am sad to say but if any of this sounds familiar I would love to know more.

My grandfather was William Lee Dent who was
born in Rocky Mount, Franklin County, Virginia.
My mother, Delcie Lee Dent was the 12th of 13
children. My grandfather migrated to Mingo County
which was then part of Logan County. He married
Mary Jane Williamson in 1892 and spent the remainder
of his life Mingo County. He died in 1947.
His eldest son, Jim Dent, was a Deputy Sheriff and
Jailer in Williams during the 1940's 1950's.

My great grandfather was named William D. Dent. He died in 192 in Shores, Virginia. Shores is a little unincorporated place located near the James River and the Kanawha Canal in Fluvanna County, Virginia. He was born in Georgia on October 12, 1838. He served with Company "C" of the 13th Regiment of the Georgia Infantry or the Confederate Army.

His father was named Walter Dent. I believe Walter was the son of a Peter Dent who settled in Maryland and who had several children.

If you have run across any Dents in Georgia who may be related to Walter, my great great grandfather or William D. Dent, my great grandfather, please let me know. I think I am within two generations of having the Dent side of my family tree completed.

My pedigree charts show Peter Dent Sally
Ann Camden as parents of Joel Dent, born c
1802. Joel's siblings were Sarah, John,
Chelnessy, Jarrett William H. Dent who was
the youngest and born in 1809. Peter Dent,
c 1770-1854 was the son of John Dent Milley
Dollard, born c 1735. John Dent's father was
also John Dent whose wife was Sarah Goode, born
c 1710. John's father was Joel Dent, born c
1690 and his mother wal Nancy Lensey. They
were the 2nd group of Dents and, as far as I
can determine, not related to the Maryland Dents.
