Regarding this fellow we are unsure of his parents except by circumstanical evidence. We believe his mother to have been the Phoebe TRENT of the various Grayson Co., VA censuses. (We also believe that HAWKS may not be the maiden name of Lydia, as it seems by the records that she may have been married to a Hawk(s) man before she married William T. Trent as we ( I ) have never found any male Trents from William T. Trent & Lydia Hawk(s)........)
Phoebe TRENT seems to have several daughters, and three sons, Wm. T. and James P. (my great grandfather) and maybe the Milton G. Trent, all of Grayson Co., VA, as there is never an adult male listed in her households! This family line, which is mine, seems to have come late to Grayson Co., VA from the Franklin Co., VA area and before that, their grandfather, William TRENT, from southern Bedford Co., VA.
We have to yet place the Henry E. Trent of Grayson Co., VA also, tho we do believe he may well also be a part of same the family grouping. There is at the present time, a DNA project for TRENT MALES being run via the TRENT Family Forum Board here at genalogy.com.
If you know anyone living from these lines who would be willing to be a part of the DNA project please have them go to those postings and sign up..........
