[Administrator's Note: 20 August 2015 - Due to a system error, the changes/additions made to this page between June 30th and August 5th need to be re-added. If your information was added/changed during this time period, your patience is appreciated.]

The following patriarch lineages have been submitted by active Kent researchers interested in furthering their own genealogical knowledge. Many have contributed the results of their branch’s “Y-DNA” test (as listed on the “y-Results” tab above, cross-referenced by the DNA kit number). ALL Kent researchers, whether they have contributed DNA or not, are encouraged to post their lineage on this page, and to collaborate.

This page is arranged by haplogroups as either predicted or confirmed Family Tree DNA. Please search through all of the lineages to see if you recognize any names or locations. Those that share the same haplogroup do share a common genetic ancestor, however, the test results must be compared to determine if the connection is within modern history or beyond the scope of genealogical interest.

y-HAPLOGROUP I [Letter "I"]

The Haplogroup of “I” is estimated to have originated about 25,000 years ago among the people of Eastern Africa and Southern Europe. After the ice age, it spread into Northern Europe and is considered the only native European Haplogroup, representing nearly one-fifth of today’s European population. The following lineages are in Haplogroup "I" and within that haplogroup there are smaller subclades (subgroups), as identified from their y-DNA test.  Sources: Wikipedia and Eupedia, 2014
 
Haplogroup I, Subclade M223:
It is proposed that the subclade of M223 had its roots, most likely, occurring in the Northern France region but is currently associated with Britain and the northwest part of Continental Europe. It is most frequently found within Viking/Scandinavian populations and extends at low frequencies into Central and Eastern Europe.
 
The haplogroup and subclade (subgroup) for Participants #B3519 and #N83186 is predicted as M223. Over the past 10+ years this subclade has also been referred to as I2b112a2a, and I1c in scientific research articles.

Administrator's Review of above Lineage I and Lineage II in Haplogroup I, Subclade M223:

Participant #B3519 (Stephen G. Kent) tested at 37 markers and Participant #N83186 (Herbert M. Kent) tested at 12 markers and they have a genetic distance of (1) at the low resolution of 12 markers.

As a result of significant research, Participant #B3519 has his furthest known Kent ancestor established firmly as MARK KENT, SENIOR, born circa 1750 at Hartford Co., Maryland, and died 1791 at Union Co., South Carolina (was married to Martha BANKHEAD). Participant #N83186 has his furthest known Kent ancestor as DAVID ALPINE KENT, born about 1836 probably in England or Scotland, resided at Armstrong Co., Pennsylvania and the date or location of his demise is unknown. He married MARGARET E. PHILLIPS and had a son named HARRY ALPINE KENT.

These two Kent participants have not found their common ancestor, but Participant #N83186 had only participated with the 12-marker test in 2010 before his sudden passing in 2011.

Without a paper trail and only a low resolution match of 11 out of 12 genetic markers, it can only be confirmed that Participants #B3519 and #N83186 most likely have a common Kent ancestor within the last 29 generations. It is ideal that the next-of-kin of Participant #N83186 would be located in case further analyzing of the test results is needed.

y-HAPLOGROUP "E"
The Haplogroup of “E” is estimated to have originated in Africa about 50,000 years ago. This is a highly diversified and complex group and has been the most frequently revised haplogroup with over sixty subclades (sub-branches), each with their own unique histories and distributions. The origin of E-M2 (longhand E1b1a) has been restricted to sub-Saharan Africa. Although it exists at low levels in Europe and Asia, it is considered the major haplogroup in contemporary African Americans (with frequencies as high as 60%). This is attributed to the transatlantic slave trade that took place during the 1500s until the 1800s that brought men with this haplogroup to the respective continents.

1) Find the names of the parents for Silas Kent and his siblings and find out where in New Jersey his family resided before moving to Patterson Creek, Hampshire Co., Virginia (not located in Mineral Co., West Virginia).
 
2) There is a older John Kent and his wife, Rachel, that lived at Cabin Run, Patterson Creek, Hampshire Co., Virginia. How does he relate to Silas Kent?
 
3) The BURGETT family has a genetic connection with this Kent lineage and the paper trail leads back to Phebe Kent that married Frederick Burgett and resided in Hampshire Co., Virginia. How does Phebe Kent relate to Silas Kent? Age-wise, she appears to be a higher generation.

Kit No. 407117 (Millard Kent) has a confirmed haplogroup of E-M2 and has a close genetic match with descendants of both the Silas and Olive (West) family and the John J. and Margaret (-?-) family (Silas Kent and John J. Kent are confirmed brothers). The paper trail has yet to determine the exact familial connection with the below Jacob Kent that settled at Freedom, Washtenaw, Michigan. Jacob Kent of Freedom, Washtenaw, Michigan is presumed to be connected to the Jacob Kent that lived at Beavercreek, Greene Co., Ohio between 1802 and 1810 and may in fact be the same individual. This theory is based on the below Daniel Kent (1805-1896), that had stated in writing, that he was born in 1805 near Dayton, Ohio (located in Greene County) and that his grandfather was Jacob Kent of Freedom, Washtenaw, Michigan. The only known Kent family in 1805 at Greene Co., Ohio was that of Jacob Kent that settled as an entryman in about 1803 at Beavercreek, Greene, Ohio. No information about the children of Jacob Kent of Beavercreek, Greene, Ohio has been discovered, to date.

[Administrator's Note (14 August 2015): Need to re-review this assessment since new DNA participants have joined this cluster and number of markers have been upgraded.]

 

E-M2 (Longhand E1b1a1), Lineages I & V: Participants #224485 (Lynn Kent) and #281800 (R. D. Kent) have taken a "y" DNA test. A genetic distance of (1) and match 36 out of 37 markers. Participant #224485 has his furthest known Kent ancestor as SILAS KENT, born 09 June 1782 at New Jersey, resided at Hampshire Co., (now) West Virginia between 1802 to 1807, and died 21 August 1833 at Union, Union, Ohio. Participant #224485 has his furthest known Kent ancestor as JOHN J. KENT, born 12 June 1769 at New Jersey, resided at Cabin Run, Patterson Creek, Hampshire Co., (now) West Virginia between 1786 to 1791, and died 27 October 1853 in the adjacent county of his home at Jerome, Union, Ohio. These two Kent patriarchs are confirmed as brothers, though their parents’ names and any known siblings are unconfirmed. The paper trail and a 36 out of 37 genetic marker match confirm Participants #224485 and #281800 as fifth cousins with their common ancestor approximately 245 years ago at 1769 in Colonial New Jersey.

Although Haplogroup E is scientifically acknowledged as an especially complicated group with dramatic changes and previously asserted theories revised, the hypothesis that this Kent family has had racial mixing cannot be denied.

The heritage of this Kent family beyond Colonial New Jersey circa 1769 is unknown but all known branches have the collective appearance of European (White) descent with family tradition always stating descent from England. The genetic signature for the father of John J. Kent born in 1769 and his younger brother, Silas Kent, born 13 years later has been scientifically proven as subclade E-M2 and thus, had already been established before that time. Since John J. Kent and Silas Kent, along with their descendants were always listed as Caucasian/White, owned many parcels of land throughout the generations and served on juries, etc., it suggests multiple generations of blending that may have already occured and may trace back to Europe during the 1500s to 1700s. More information is needed to make any further determinations.

Administrator's Note (02 July 2015): A paper trail has been established with Lineage VI, but Mr. McMahan's subclade is 'predicted' as R-M269 as compared to Mr. Gregory Kent's 'confirmed' subclade of R-Z12. Mr. McMahan's subclade should be confirmed to determine if there is a generational divide of subclades or if they are all in ther small R-Z12 group.

Administrator's Note (01 July 2015): The haplogroup and subclade of Gregory Kent (Lineage III) has been confirmed as a small and refined subclade of R-Z12. Mr. McMahan (Lineage I) has the y-DNA results of his branch's qualifying male Kent and they are predicted as the very common European haplogroup/subclade of R-M269. Is there a break in subclade between these two Lineages, or would Mr. McMahan's y-DNA results be confirmed as the distinct R-Z12. Further SNP testing is required to determine.

The paper trail in New Jersey has not been found to connect these two Kent families that lived near each other at the same time. Further research by this group should be done to find their New Jersey connection. The tracing forward of Kent families that descended from Morris and/or Essex Counties in search of a living male Kent descendent, with his known paper trail, may yield positive results.

RESEARCH GOAL: Family tradition states that the elder James Kent was a young widower and first immigrated from Scotland to the US and then sent for his young son, James Scott Kent. The father met his son at the docks in Philadelphia and brought a huge white horse to parade his son down Broad Street to his new home. 1) Immigration records circa 1835-1855 have yet to be found. 2) Where in Scotland did this Kent family immigrate from?
