The Gentry Family



Info:

This side of the family starts with Mitty Gentry married to Soloman Skelton

Mitty, Solomon's wife, was a Gentry. This family came from two brothers who came to America as British Soldiers in 1677 to fight in Bacon Rebellions. They both stayed and our line comes from the one named Nicholas who was born ca 1657 in Sussex England and settled in New Kent County Virginia. His wife's name is unknown but he had a son Nicholas ll who lived in Albemarle Co, Virginia. His son was also named Nicholas who was married twice. This Nicholas lll was a revolutionary war soldier from Virginia. Nicholas lll and Nancy had a son David who married a Sarah Brooks and settled in Ludenburg Co, NC. Their son Allen Cain born ca 1760 was our ancestor. Allen Cain married Liddy Youngblood and their son John was the ancestor of our Mitty who married Solomon Skelton.
