I think I have a good bit. Dad's name was James Dewey Gentle, he was married to Bernice (nee Barbara) Kirkland, dad's fathers name was James A Gentle I believe, from Haleyville/Hamilton AL, mother was Mary Gentle. My uncle's name was Cranford Gentle, of Hunstville AL; his wife, at least his second wife (the only I knew) was Laverne (sp?). We are/were descended from a James Gentle who immigrated from West UK, probably Liverpool area, circa 1793 in Philadelphia PA.
From rememberances of my 20s, back in the 70s, I do know we have a lot of relatives in the Stephens families of North AL, southern TN. Cousins or extended family there...
I hope this is enough to go on, as this is about all I have so far. I know we have extensive roots in AL, SC, NC, and PA, at least from family rumours if not knowledge. All my elders are deceased. Aunts Uncles, Father, Mother. So all I have are anecdotal from this point on.
Thanks very much,
