Nicholas Gentry of Fredericksville Parish, for good will & fatherly love to my son David Gentry, 100 acres on branches of Dirty Swamp. Begin W. Winstons line, Maj. John Starkes corner.
Signed: Nicholas (A) Gentry. 23 Aug 1757 ack. By Nicholas Gentry.
David married Mary Estes on 16 Jul 1758 in Louisa Co VA. She was born about 1726 in New Kent Co VA, daughter of Reuben Estes.
It is possible that David had a brief earlier marriage before he married Mary Estes. There is a Bailey listed in tax lists in Trinity Parish, Louisa Co, that seems to be too old to have been a child of Mary.
David bought 500 acres in Albemarle Co in 1778, but left there in 1787 to move to Madison Co KY. He appears in the 1800 tax list in Madison Co. His will is also in Madison County.
The editor of the Gentry JOURNAL suggests that David's name as eldest might indicate that the wife of Nicholas I was a Crawford, daughter of David Crawford. The Crawfords were active in St. Peter's Parish & had bought Samuel Gentry's land grant. He proposes the daughter Elizabeth but other Crawford records suggest that Elizabeth Crawford, daughter of David married Nicholas Meriwether.

carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with David:
