It is my understanding that some of the Gentrys in Wise County Texas trace their family to Simon Jackson Gentry who married Elizabeth Bates daughter of Sidney and Lucinda Bates. Elizabeth Bates was born 1821 in what is now Chilton County, AL.

I have additional information on the Sidney and Lucinda Bates family, my gggrandparents. If you desire the information please contact me. I recently had the DNA test and it gave a match with the Bates from Lydd, Kent County, England.
