What luck! I stopped at Kellys Corner bar (corner of Rte 22 and 312) to inquire about
where there might be a cemetery near Dykman Rd. named Old Southeast. The owner produced
a new book on the community of Southeast and lo and behold, there was a photo of the
tombstone of my ancestor, Rev. Elisha Kent, buried not far away. We were en route to
visit son in Poughkeepsie.
Anyone else researching this Kent line? I alread have quite a lot on his and related
family lines. Elisha came to the Putnam Co. area from Newtown, CT, and served a
Presbyterian Church, dying in 1776. His wife Abigail was grandaughter of a founder of
Yale College which he attended. Also, wonder if the Kent town name in Putnam Co. has a
Bill in Springfield, MO
