  1. An Isaac Kent (we assume the spelling of the last name changed) in my ancestry was born in 1859 in Wayne County, Iowa, the 3rd of 8 children born to Adam Kint (b. 1825 in Coshocton County, Iowa, and Lydia Eve Leazer b. 1824 in Washington County, PA. Lydia was the daughter of George and Martha Miller Leazer. George and Martha are buried in unmarked graves (field stones were apparently used until vandals destroyed the graves) in Greer Cemetery in Wayne County, Iowa.

    Are your Isaac Kent and my Isaac Kent different people?
