Hi Penni,

I don't think that the Richard Dent who married in Wisconsin is yours , details were :

May 20 , 1854 , Event Place Hazel Green, Grant, Wisconsin

Richard Dent (F William Dent , M Jane Dent) b England , to
Jane Alexander(F William Alexander M Mary Alexander)

1870 Census Wisconsin

Richard D age 41 b England
Jane D age 33 b Ireland
Mary J 15 b Wisconsin
Elizabeth A 13 b WI
William 11 b WI
Sarah 6 b WI
Ruth J 4 b WI
Eliza 2 b WI

So no children born Canada. But there is in Minnesota 1870 ;

Richard Dent 40y b England
Sarah Dent 36y b Canada
Jane D 16 b Canada
William D 12 b Canada
James D 10 b Canada
Annie D 8 b Canada
Richard D 4 b Missouri
Alice D 1 b Minnesota

Is this the correct family ?
