The subject John C. White was granted permission by John Kent on 30 Mar 1811 in Amite Co., MS, (just across the state line from Feliciana Parish) to marry his step-daughter Patience Smith, who was a minor (probably under 18). John was a Notary Public in E. Feliciana Parish, where his household with Patience, 8 sons, and 1 daughter, are found in the 1830 census. Their household was also listed in the source parish of Feliciana in 1820. I found neither John nor Patience in 1850 E. Feliciana.

If you know anything about this family, please contact me. I descend from the above John Kent and his wife Ann, who was the widow Ann Smith when they married at Columbia Co., GA, on 3 Mar 1798. Ann was the mother of Patience Smith and I am trying to find more about Ann's ancestry.
