Please put all SURNAMES in CAPS. It is easier to see them. Use full names, not just surnames.
Include dates that you know. Approximate dates are fine. Names without dates are not very

It has come to our attention that some folks, when answering a
query, have been asking to be paid for research. We do recognize that it would be fair to be
asked to be reimbursed for postage and photocopy costs. However, charging research fees for
information pertaining to the original query would be questionable at best.
If anyone is asked to pay for any information, other than to cover the cost of postage and

Desire names, year of birth, etc. of all 18 children of John Gant who
died sometime after 1850 when he was listed in the census of
Williamson Co., TN for that year. John had Jeremiah, b. ca 1787 in
Orange Co., NC and probably Joel, b. 1789 in Orange Co., NC (Joel
married Sarah Phillips and they were in the 1820 census of Williamson
Co., TN but not found in any later record)by his first wife before
migrating to Canada with his second wife, Nancy Judge and his brother
Thomas (both adopted the surname of Ghent in Canada). Thomas remained
in Canada and raised a large family. John apparently had 6 more
children in Canada (including Camilla. ca. 1792) but returned to
Orange Co., NC after the death of his wife. In 1806, John married
Esther Lovens with whom he had 10 children whose names and vitals I
have (from his family bible).
All of this information and much more on the descendants of John Gant
(1713-1783) of Colonial VA and NC in a book about him published
earlier this year.
Any help will be appreciated
