Ghent Family Jefferson
Posted by: Tisha Russo (ID *****3305) Date: November 25, 2006 at 10:39:09
  of 961

Hello,
I am looking for anyone who might be able to point me in the proper direction.
My bio grandfather was James Robert Ghent and he died abt 1965 he had possibly remarried an Anna ??? who died in 94. ( I have photos of the grave sites but not infront of me at this moment.)

James Robert and my grandmother divorced when my father was abt 2-3 yrs old. And so I know almost nothing about this side of my family. lol there is even some debate on how to pronounce the surname..ie Ghent with a hard G as in the Treaty of, Ghent with a soft G sound, or Ghent pronounced ge nei and if nothing else I would love to clear that up.
Anyway I would think if James had indeed remarried and Anna was his 2nd wife that they should have had children.
I am hoping to'contact' online and gather information as I do not want to interfear with their lives. I do not even know if they ( any survivng Ghents) are aware of my fathers existance as he did not know of his fathers' possible remarriage. Heck I didnt even know of the divorce until I was in my 20's.
If anyone knows anything It would be much appicerated.
Thank you
tisha
