Our Kent Family Patriarchs

Last Updated: 26 September 2016

The primary goal of this public website is to have as many active KENT family researchers involved in order to assist each other with any respective brick walls. A secondary goal is to connect known lineages by utilizing DNA testing. Taking a DNA test is a very personal choice and is completely optional.

Click here to add your KENT family's lineage to this page.

Click here to order an optional DNA test.

Transfer a copy of your DNA test results to compare with the other members within our project:
  • Click here to transfer a copy of DNA results taken at AncestryDNA (Ancestry.com) to our preferred testing company, Family Tree DNA. This is a free transfer program to a limited-access version of their highly acclaimed “Family Finder” test with an optional one-time fee of $39 for full account privileges (highly recommended).

  • If you already have an account with Family Tree DNA, click here for instructions to add your Kit to the Project.

  • Click here to transfer a copy of your existing National Geographic's Genographic Project results (free transfer). 

The following lineages are arranged with our newest researchers first, then by geographical region, then by grouping known or suspected common KENT ancestors together. We have 100+ KENT lineages and it may be helpful to utilize the well-known keyboard shortcut “Find Command” (Select the “Control” + “F” keys simultaneously on a standard PC; “Command” + “F” keys simultaneously on a Mac). By using this command and typing a desired “keyword” it will easily enable a user to search for that keyword across the entire webpage. For Example: Simultaneously select the “Command” + “F” keys on your keyboard, then type in the automated search-box “New York” — this will take you to every place on this page that New York is mentioned.
 
A combination of yDNA test results (on “qualifying KENT males”) and atDNA test results (both males and females) will be listed on this page, as it appears pertinent to KENT family research. It is OPTIONAL for a DNA participant to have this information listed at this page and it is listed to help each other determine probable KENT family connections. For privacy purposes, DNA connections will be listed by their Kit Number, first/middle initials only, then by surname (unless requested otherwise).
 
Seasoned researchers are determined to gather as many original records as are available and know important sources are found at the state and county level. It is for this reason that two important references are embedded into each lineage and/or region. FamilySearch.org’s “Family History Research Wiki” <https://familysearch.org/wiki/en> is a great place to determine which existing or new sources may be available. Another embedded reference MapofUSA.org <http://www.mapofus.org/>, is a good source for identifying evolving boundaries (over time) within a region/state. We hope you find valuable connections within the project!
 

 
 
In an effort to help Kent Project members collaborate, the Adminstrator will add any identified "distant" DNA connections between project members, along with the DNA match's furthest known KENT ancestor. For privacy purposes, any atDNA in common with an immediate family member will not be listed (parent/child, siblings, grandparent/grandchild, aunt-uncle/niece-nephew). For any DNA connections above 1,000 centiMorgans (indicating immediate family) please contact the line leader of the respective lineage directly. Many of the researchers on this page have not taken a DNA test, but for those that have made the personal choice to do so, identifying patterns of atDNA connections between project members can be very helpful with many of our brick walls. If interested, various charts with examples of the amounts of atDNA that family members typically share are registered at the International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG), here. For reference, the graph titled "Shared cM Project" by Blaine T. Bettinger is highly recommended.

It is believed by the Administator of this Project that the following two matches do NOT descend from a common Kent ancestor, as do the above matches (with various brick walls). Since these two matches are not showing up in Linda LaMarca's DNA matches, it leads to the theory that the atDNA connection with the following two Kent researchers are through her PATERNAL side of the family (the opposite parent of the targeted Kent family of research interest).

Lineages within the U.S. have been grouped together by geographical regions. These eight regions were carefully selected to correlate with both historical migration patterns and regions selected by the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists (internationally recognized as ICAPGen). This association gives recommendations for professional genealogists that have been vetted as research experts by geographical specialty. The Kent Family & DNA Project is not endorsing any specific organization nor individual inasmuch as providing resources to any interested parties. Regions are as follows:

ORIGINAL THIRTEEN COLONIES (Territories)
2. MID-ATLANTIC REGION (Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania)

[Established Descendant of Helmer Kent, b (-?-) d 1788 Morris Co., NJ m Sarah COOK:]
- A genetic match of 37 out of 37 markers (a zero-step difference) with Participant #250764 (M.

- There are very low level matches at 11 out of 12 markers (one-step difference) with several more Kent project males, but there is less than a two percent chance they are related within the last 24 generations. Their names are not included in this area as to not add confusion from the results.

The following three Kent males do not all have an established paper trail, but all match genetically on the Y chromosome. The atDNA connection is presumed to be on a collateral family line, the surname of "Cook" seems to be a common pattern within their atDNA matches between Jim Kent and the following three Kent males.]

Administrator's Note (May 2016): At some point, one of the female atDNA participant(s) of this line may want to consider taking a mitocondrial DNA test (mtDNA) to determine the mtDNA for the matriach of this line. Although mtDNA is not commonly useful for immediate genealogical purposes, it can be helpful using it in tandem with atDNA to compare to other established descendants from a matriarchs maiden name's lineage.

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?
