SOME "ORPHAN" GENTRYS OF SOUTH CAROLINA
(+ TABLE OF MALE SOUTH CAROLINA GENTRYS)
by
Willard Gentry
Revised July 2014

Abstract
Proposals are presented for the parentage of several Gentrys including John, Allen and Roland Gentry of Hall County, Georgia; two Cornelius Gentrys of Franklin County, Georgia; and Shadrick (or Shedrick) Gentry of Tennessee and Alabama. An appendix provides a table of proposed relationships of all known male Gentrys living in South Carolina before 1810.

Introduction
There were a number of early Gentrys who originated in South Carolina and then migrated westward to Georgia, Texas, Missouri, and elsewhere, without leaving clear traces of their ancestry. Frequently recurring requests to this publication, and to various Gentry family mailing lists and forums, seek to learn the origins of for example, a group of Gentrys (as well as related Hammonds and Gravetts) living in Hall County, Georgia, a question about two Cornelius Gentrys, questions as to whether Rolly and Roland Gentry were one or two individuals, and questions about a Shadrick Gentry. Documentary evidence linking these families with their ancestors is lacking and will probably never be found. By careful analysis of the little evidence that is available, especially by analysis of census records, we can reach conclusions that have a moderate to high degree of probability. We propose here to add evidence to these family relationships and to suggest how they may have connected to earlier generations of Gentrys.

A. The Gentrys of Hall County, Georgia
There are at least six Gentrys that can be identified with Hall County, Georgia, in the period from 1820 to 1832. These Gentrys include John and Allen who were listed in the 1820 Hall County census, a "Roland" Gentry who married Nancy Mattocks in 1823, and William who married Lucinda Gravett. An item of considerable confusion is a record of a "Rolly" Gentry marrying Elsie Gravett in 1830. Was this the same as man as the earlier Roland, getting married a second time. We have concluded that he was not and that in fact he was a "Raleigh" Gentry who lived for a time in Paulding County, Georgia and was part of another family. We have quite confidently concluded that all of the Gentrys living in Hall County in the 1820's were a part of the family of a John Gentry who was living in Abbeville District, South Carolina, in 1810. We present our analysis and arguments below.

John Gentry, listed with his family on page 8 of the 1810 Abbeville District, South Carolina census, included in his family:

his wife1765-1784
2 sons1794-1800
3 sons1800-1810
2 daughters1800-1810

This family appears in no further Abbeville records, nor does John himself appear again in any census records. He is believed to have died, probably after moving to Hall County, Georgia, some time after 1817 when a sixth son was born to the family.

It will be helpful to present the data on John's proposed family in tabular form.

The excellent correlation in both dates of birth and sexes from one census year to another leads me believe that the Gentrys that passed through Hall County, Georgia between 1820 and 1832, with the exception of the Rolly Gentry mentioned above, were all one family, and the family was that of John Gentry of Abbeville District. If any of these assumptions prove wrong in the future, it might be that only one or two details are in error. For this and any other hypothesis, we can never prove it is right, it can only be disproved. The next step in the puzzle – the identification of the father of John Gentry – we will defer to later in the article.

B. The Cornelius Gentrys and Related Family
Another frequent question for Gentry mailing lists and forums is "Who was the Cornelius Gentry who lived in Franklin County, Georgia, in 1830 and Madison County, Alabama, in 1840?" Again, by analysis of census records, we propose that this Cornelius Gentry and a younger Cornelius Gentry who was also living in Franklin County, Georgia in 1830, were descended from another John Gentry. This John Gentry is listed with his family in the 1810 census for Edgeville District, South Carolina. [To differentiate between these two Johns, in this article we shall refer to the John that appeared in the Abbeville District as John (A), and the John who was in the Edgefield District as John (E).] There is no apparent further record of this second John, but in the 1820 census for Spartanburg District, South Carolina, there is a listing for a widow, Susan Gentry, and family. The good correspondence between John's family in 1810, and Susan's family in 1820, has led me to believe that Susan was John's widow. As before, we will use a tabular format as an aid to comparing ages and sexes of John and Susan's family.

This family complex does not have the same close correspondence of ages and sexes as in the case of the Hall County, Georgia Gentrys. We start by considering the family of Susan Gentry only. The proposal of assigning the two Cornelius Gentrys to Susan's family, in an uncle and nephew relationship, explains very well their presence together in Franklin County, Georgia in 1830. While one can find other Gentrys in the 1810 and 1820 South Carolina census records who were the same age as the two Cornelius's that have not been definitely identified, none of them have this same type of relationship or reason to be in Franklin County at the same time. Besides this relationship, their ages fit precisely with members of Susan's family. While we do not know what happened to the younger Cornelius, the family of the older Cornelius as shown in 1840 and 1850 is entirely consistent with our proposal. Of further interest is the fact that descendants of Uriah Gentry assert that he was born in Spartanburg District, South Carolina.

The identification of the father of the younger Cornelius as a John Gentry Jr. is speculation. The suggestion that Ranneys Gentry, found in the 1820 Spartanburg district was a part of the John and Susan Gentry family is also speculation, furthered by the fact that Susan and Ranneys are listed on the same page in the census.

The next step in this identification sequence, is to tie Susan Gentry's family to the John Gentry of the 1810 Edgefield District census. Two factors are involved here: (1) there were no families in Spartanburg District in the 1810 census that can be logically tied to Susan Gentry's family; and (2) the fact that the members of Susan's family still living with her in 1820, have exact matches with corresponding members who were in John's family in 1810. This is entirely circumstantial, but it is the best we can do. We assume that John died between 1810 and 1820, and for some unknown reason, his widow, Susan, moved with the remaining members of her family to Spartanburg District.

C. Shadrick Gentry
Related to the queries concerning the two Cornelius Gentrys is another for the parents of Shadrick (or Shaderick or Shedrick) Gentry. The early history of this Gentry is very sketchy. His name appears in tax lists for McMinn County, Tennessee in 1829 and 1830, assessed for one white poll, but he does not appear in the 1830 census. He is known, from pension records, to have enlisted in the War of 1812 in the South Carolina militia (presumably living in South Carolina at the time), then enlisted in the Alabama militia in 1837. On 23 May 1823, Shadrick Gentry is recorded as marrying Rebecca Ballard in Roane County, Tennessee, and a Rebecca was living with Shadrick in Jackson County, Alabama in 1850 (Shadrick was age 54, born in South Carolina). On the other hand, the War Department pension records list a Martha J Gentry as Shadrick's surviving widow, so he may have married a second time after 1850. Besides the Jackson County census of 1850, Shadrick is listed in Alabama census records in DeKalb County, in 1840 (under the name "S.K."), in this case with a wife and a large family of ten children. The 1850 census records indicate, based on the birth places of his children, that Shadrick moved from Tennessee to Alabama by 1832. Since he is not found in any 1830 census records he may have been moving at about that time.

From these sketchy facts we can say that he was born probably in 1795 or 1796, in South Carolina, and because he enlisted in the South Carolina militia, probably was living in South Carolina at the time of the 1810 census. To find his parents, we need to look for a family with a son of the appropriate age who was present in both 1800 and 1810, then left home to join the army. With the lack of Tennessee records, it is not surprising that there is no record of him in the 1810 census, and in 1820, Roane County was one of the Tennessee counties for whom census records are missing. While the table in the Appendix below does not show census listings for 1820, the Gentry males, born between 1790 and 1800 in 1800 and between 1794 and 1800 in 1810 include the families of Reynolds, Robert and Thomas (sons of Hezekiah), Simon, John (son of Cain), and Jeremiah. In addition, the family of John of Edgefield in the 1810 census shows two sons of the right edge who presumably were with his family in 1800. We suggest that this latter family was most likely the origin of Shadrick and we have shown him accordingly in the table above.

D. Identifying the two unknown John Gentrys
We have tentatively connected the Gentrys of Hall County, Georgia, to one John Gentry [John (A)], and the two Cornelius Gentrys of Franklin County, Georgia, and Shadrick Gentry to another John Gentry [John (E)]. The fact that both Johns coincidentally appeared with their families in the census record for the first time in 1810 complicates their identification. We will start with John (E), the older John. John's family included six children born between 1784 and 1794. With that many children, surely the oldest must have been born in 1784 or very close to it, and John probably married a year or two before that time. John's birth date was given in the census as before 1765. The estimate of the date of marriage suggests John was born in the interval between about 1760 and 1764. Extending these dates further, John's father was probably born before about 1740.

John's age severely restricts the number of possible fathers. Their identification starts with the basic premise that these potential fathers were all descendants of Samuel-II or David-II Gentry, for there are no known instances of early Gentrys who settled in the eighteenth century in South Carolina who were not a part of these two families. We can narrow it further to just the David-II Gentry family. All of the members of Samuel-II's family that first came to and remained in South Carolina did so in Spartanburg District. As described in volume 3, issue 3 of the Gentry Journal, the members of this family in that district who were of an appropriate age are (a) sufficiently known (the two Samuel families), or (b) they had left the district (Nicholas, Richard, and Nathaniel) well before 1800 so that there appears to be no reasonable way that they can be connected to either of the two Johns. In considering possibilities for tying John (E) to the David-II Gentry family, factors to keep in mind include the following:

  1. Hezekiah: David-II's oldest son, Hezekiah, was of an appropriate age to be a father of John, but all of his family is known from Hezekiah's will, and it does not include a John.
  2. David-III and John-III: The birthdates of David-II's son are known only approximately, but David-III and John-III were probably born roughly between 1732 and 1737. Both were of an appropriate age to be a father of John (E). We consider both to be potential candidates.
  3. Allen Cain: David-II's next oldest son, Allen Cain, can be disregarded for consideration as father of either John (E) or John (A). He had a well-documented son, also named John, who appeared in South Carolina census records beginning in 1790 and continuing to 1830.
  4. The other sons of David-II, namely Simon, Elisha, and Elijah, were too young to be considered as a parent of John (E)

John (A), the father of the Hall County, Georgia, Gentrys, was listed in the census for the first time in 1810 also, but in Abbeville District, South Carolina. This John was considerably younger than the other John. While the 1810 census gives his age as 26 to 45, he must have been at the younger end of the range since his two oldest children were not born until after 1794. From this we conclude that this John was married shortly before or after 1794 and that in 1790 his age would have been a few years over 16, thus born probably between 1770 and 1774. Potential choices are listed below:

  1. David-III and John-III: These two remain as possible candidates for being a father of John (A) as well as candidates for father of John (E). Being the older of the two, David is the presumptive choice for being the father of John (E) and thus John-III would be the choice of the two for being the father of John (A).
  2. Simon: Had one son living with him in the 1790 census of the correct age, but this son is thought to be the Francis Gentry who is listed in the 1800 Edgefield census. Simon is not a good prospect for being John's father.
  3. Elisha and Elijah: These brothers and their families were living in Georgia from 1790 onwards and so do not appear in any South Carolina census records. The fact that the Hall County, Georgia, Gentrys (all of whom were born after 1790) list South Carolina as their birthplace, eliminates Elisha and Elijah from consideration.

To summarize these possibilities. David-III, being older, appears to be the choice for being the father of the Edgefield John, the father-in-law of Susan Gentry, and the grandfather of the elder Cornelius Gentry and of Shadrick Gentry. If we assume this to be true, then John-III probably was the father of Abbeville John, and the grandfather of the Hall County, Georgia, Gentrys. In addition to age, the fact that the proposed father, John Sr., was living in Abbeville District in 1800 gives added weight to this choice. One basic requirement for these identifications, that the proposed father did not have another son named John, applies for both of these cases.

E. Tyre Gentry and "Cherokee David" Gentry
These two "orphan" Gentrys with South Carolina ties have just recently been described in Gentry Journal articles (JGG, vol 2, #11 for Tyre and JGG, vol 3, #4 for David). We will not, therefore, discuss them further here. Briefly, this author presently is of the opinion that Tyre Gentry's father was Nathaniel Gentry of Spartanburg District, South Carolina, and that the father of "Cherokee David" was probably Simon Gentry but could have been John-III Gentry.

F. The Allen Gentrys of Tennessee
Many questions have been raised about several Allen Gentrys who appeared in a number of Tennessee records in the period between 1820 and 1850. All of these appear to have South Carolina roots. We cannot answer those questions with our present state of knowledge. [Note. An entire journal article has been devoted to this question, namely issue A, March 2005, and then reposted in revised form. The complexity of the problem and arguments for resolution may be seen there. We will briefly summarize the conclusions as follows (the identification letters follow the pattern used in the later article).

Summary
We have proposed here:

1. A family of Gentrys who settled briefly in Hall County, Georgia, were children of a John and Sarah Gentry who appeared in the 1810 Abbeville District, South Carolina census, and that John in turn was probably a son of John-III Gentry (son of David-II and Sarah Brooks Gentry).

2. Two Cornelius Gentrys who appeared in the 1830 Franklin County, Georgia, the older of whom appeared again in the 1840 Madison County, Alabama census, probably had an uncle-nephew relationship. The older Cornelius, and the father of the younger Cornelius were probably sons of a John Gentry who was present in the 1810 census for Edgefield District, South Carolina, and was probably a son of David-III Gentry (a brother of the John-III above).

3. A Shadrick Gentry who enlisted in the South Carolina militia in the War of 1812 and who subsequently appeared in the records of Roane and McMinn County, Tennessee, DeKalb County, Alabama, and Jackson County, Alabama, was probably the son of John Gentry of Edgefield (and a brother of the older Cornelius above).

4. Tyre Gentry, whose life and family have been described in an earlier article was probably a son of Nathaniel Gentry.

5. David Gentry, who lived with the Cherokee Indians, and married Tiana Rogers, was probably a son of Simon Gentry.

6. The identities of a group of Allen Gentrys who probably originated in South Carolina, and lived in Tennessee between 1820 and 1850 have been tied back to proposed South Carolina parents.
