  • Notes 
    • Following info from Leon Wilde's Genealogical Research Website:

      In 1777, in Charles Co., VA, Samuel was on county-wide militia list (listing able-bodied men 16-50 years) as private in Henry Clarkson’s Company of militia, 12th Bttn, published in Clements & Wright “Maryland Militia of the Revolutionary War.”
      1778 - Charles Co. MD. Samuel Dent not in 1778 constables' lists, and not in Co. oath of fidelity lists of men 18 and up.
      Virginia courthouse records show Samuel was in Henry and Franklin Co. Virginia from about 1782. He probably moved there in 1786-87.
      1781-82 - Samuel Dent on 18 Aug 1781 to receive 18s each from the western shore treasurer "of the money appropriated for the present Campaign for rations."
      1787 - By this time Samuel had moved his family from Charles Co. MD to the Snow Creek area of Franklin Co. VA.. Bought 150 acres of land.
      1791 - Married Martha Harris, possibly in Henry Co. VA
      1795 - Moved to Madison Co. KY
      Samuel sold his 150 acres on Reedy Creek (NC) in 1795 to John Dent (possible brother), and by 1796, both Samuel and his father-in-law Henry Harris, were living in Madison Co., Ky. and were listed on the annual tax list.
      1818 - Went to Franklin Co., MO and received a land grant in 1818.
      Samuel is listed in the 1810 census for Madison Co., Ky., but in 1817 once again sold land, this time 118 acres on Drowning Creek in Madison Co., KY. A year later Samuel was granted land, on Aug. 26, 1818, in Franklin Co., MO. (SE Qtr. of Sec 5, Twp. 43, Range 1 W, and the NE Qtr. of Sec 6, same Twp. and Range.) Krakow area.
      Settled and owned property at what is now Krakow, MO. Purchased more land in 1831 and 1835.

      THE FAMILY OF SAMUEL DENT 1755-1834
      Samuel Dent, according to census records, was born circa 1755, although his birthplace and his family ties have not been determined. Many Dent families settled originally in Maryland during the late 1600s and early 1700s. Some of these Dents are said to have emigrated from Yorkshire, England. Records in the Maryland Archives list a Revolutionary War service record of one Samuel Dent, of Capt. Clarkson's Company in the Charles Co., MD militia. Many of the Maryland Dents moved westward into neighboring Virginia. Courthouse records list a Samuel Dent in Henry and Franklin (formed 1786 from portions of Henry and Bedford) Counties, from about 1782, as the name appeared on a petition of inhabitants requesting that the county be divided and again on a land record in 1787. Oaths of Allegiance were recorded for Peter Dent and John Dent in 1777 in Bedford Co., Va. Samuel Dent married MARTHA (PATSY) HARRIS, daughter of Revolutionary War Soldier, HENRY HARRIS and ANNIE BIRD/BYRD of that same area, although the Harrises had lived in pre-revolutionary war days in Orange Co. and possibly in Albermarle Co. Patsy Harris Dent was born 23 May 1770. Samuel Dent sold his 150 acres on reedy Creek in 1795 to John Dent, and by 1796, both Samuel Dent and Henry Harris were living in Madison Co., KY., and were listed on the annual tax list. In 1817, Samuel and Patsy Dent decided to head west and once again sold land, this time, 188 acres on Drowning Creek in Madison Co., KY. (Book
      M, page 212) A year later, the Dents were over in Franklin Co., MO. Many of the other settlers of Franklin Co., MO were familiar names from KY. About twelve years later, in 1830, Henry Harris, Samuel's father-in-law, being old and infirm, divided and deeded all his Madison Co., KY property to his children and grandchildren. Samuel Dent died in 1834 in Franklin Co., MO. The inventory of his estate was witnessed by John Goode, William Truesdell and C. B. Hinton. Alexander Chambers was executor of the will. The inventory contained notes on H. Fackler, A. Chambers, Samuel Beatty, Dyson Johnson, William Parks, John Harris, Prior Brauly and L. D. Walls. Securities of the estate were William Truesdell and Sion Pritchett.
      (Note: Anthony S. Garrett died in 1855 in Monroe Co., MO. Bailey Dent was a witness. Garrett (1850 census) lived with his grandson, John Truesdell. Perhaps the William Truesdell, mentioned above, was related to him).

      Place name: https://shsmo.org/manuscripts/ramsay/ramsay_franklin.html
      Krakow
      Description:
      A town located on the northern border of Union Township. It is the successor of Henrietta, which was only a short distance to the north, on the southern border of St. Johns Township. Henrietta was named by Peter Haeverle, the only postmaster, for his wife. The post office was established July 15, 1867, and discontinued November 8, 1869. Its place was taken by Krakow, where a post office was established August 11, 1870. The office was discontinued in 1867 or thereabouts to the star mail route between Union and Washington. Krakow, which had many Polish settlers, was named for Krakow, chief city of Galicia, Poland, formerly a province of Austria-Hungary. Krakow is the correct Polish spelling of the city, which usually appears as Krakau in German and Cracow in English. Both Krakow and Henrietta were and still often called St. Gertrude, from St. Gertrude Catholic Church (q.v.) and Cemetery in the same neighborhood. (Postal Guide; COUNTY ATLAS, 1878, 13; HIST.
