Endt Family Genealogy Forum
Hi cousin Donna,
I will post some bits of info I have accumulated on your line of Ent's so here goes...Your George Washington Theobald Ent, was one of ten children born to Otha(Ortho?)George Ent and Lydia Lambright. Otha was b.21 June 1814 in Fredreick Co., MD. and d.16 Sep 1882, in Martinsville, Clinton Co., OH. Lyda Lambright was b.14 Jan 1816 in Fredrick Co., MD. and d.4 Dec 1892 in Martinsville. Otha and Lydia were married 21 Mar 1837 in Fredrick Co., MD. Their children are: Mary Margaret Ent b.2 Apr 1838, she married William Hale, William Henry Ent b.2 Feb 1841, Your GWT Ent, he married Ruth Moore? and secondly Maude?, Milton Lambright Ent, b.24 June 1845, Emma Jane Ent b.9 Oct 1847, Sophia Julia Reich Ent b.2 Mar 1850, Charles Edgar Ent b.20 Oct 1853, Anna Ent b.ca.1855, Ida A. Ent b.ca 1858, and Luther S. Ent b.ca,1862. Otha's father was George Washington I Ent, who was a Captain in the War of 1812. He was b.29 Nov 1777 in Germantown, PA. and d.4 Mar 1856. He married to Margaret Charolette Woltz on 30 Sep 1806. George and Margaret had 5 children: Peter Woltz Ent, Mary M. Ent, Margaret Charolette Ent, your Otha George Ent, and Charles Jacob Ent.
George Washington I Ent, was a brother to my GGG grandfather, Charles Ent, who was a Major in the War of 1812. Charles and his family settled in Butler Co.,Ohio around 1818 and I would presume that brother George may have moved to Clinton Co.,Ohio at or around the same time. George and Charles were 2 of 10 known children born to Theobald and Maria Barbara Haas Ent. In answer to your question as to how many Geroge Washington Ents there are, I do not know, however My GGG grandfather Charles had a son named George Washington Ent II, and he in turn had a son George Washington Ent III. I have no info on a George Washington Ent Confederate soldier from Maryland, but I do have a George Thomas Ent in my files born to Charles Jacob Ent who was a brother to your Otha George Ent. Please let me know if this info seems to fit your line of the family or let me know if I need to be corrected. Please email me for more places and dates I have on these folks I mentioned. Hope this helps, cousin David
