John Kent is not the son of Richard Kent. I have found two publications printed with wrong information by the authors. I have researched this and written a document of my research. The only true document is that of Vernon Briggs of the Kent families.

People are reporting from these errored documents and people are copying them with wrong information.

John Kent of Dedham then Charleston, ma came from England in 1645 with his brother Joshua and another brother named Joseph. At this time, no documentation has not been found to connect This John Kent to Richard Kent.

Also, Richard Kent came from southern England and John Kent came from midwestern England.

This file is about the research of John Kent and misinformation published in other books.

L.Vernon Briggs is the only correct book I have found. https://jhanrahan.weebly.com/uploads/1/1/4/8/114828137/john___richard_kent__bad_info.pdf
