I was glad to see your posting here because I've been trying to determine if Josiah GENT in Greene Co., MO was related to Nathaniel/Nathan S. GENT in Polk Co., I'm so glad to know that it seems they were related. It appears Josiah and his family were only in Polk Co., MO for about 15 years before migrating to Bell/McLennan Co., TX. Josiah had moved to Polk Co., MO from Walker Co., GA probably around 1860 from what I've been able to determine from census records.
In 1840 I find Josiah GHENT in Walker Co., GA. It seems this might be the elder Josiah and his family. I also found Nathan GHENT in Barry Co., MO in 1840. Do you suppose this is your Nathan? He had no family at that time.
