KENT posted by Russell Kent on Monday, July 2, 2001

My name is Russell KENT, My dad is Bobby KENT, his dad was John V, KENT born 5-24-1891 died 1-5-1970. His father was James R. KENT. We can not find any information about him. All we know is he died when my grandfather was very small. I think James' dad may have been John Robert KENT, Nov. 27, 1837-Nov. 4, 1916. My family lived in Hazen. Any information on the KENT family would be very helpful. I was in Hazen last month and found some new cemetery markers the family did not know about and I plan to come back in August to search some more. Thank you for any help you can give me.

IRBY, MOORE, OWEN posted by Dennis Moore on Monday, July 30, 2001

John C. MOORE moved to Des Arc in 1871 from Tennessee. He married Cora IRBY in 1881. He was a school teacher and a justice of the peace. He purchased some property in Calhoun Township. He suddenly died in 1896 while a JP and is buried in Des Arc. I have a lot of Info on the IRBY side (much) but need help on the MOORE side. Since both John C. MOORE and his wife, Cora, die young, I have very little info on John. Does anyone have any information here? I have found his marriage record which says he was born about 1859 and what appears to be his grave in Des Arc but no info as to where he was from in Tn.
