Ricky Dent 1684 a law was passed in the Courts of England directing that all in habitants in the colony register in their respective counties, so their movement between counties and colonies would be known to county and other authorities. The lists now available in the possession of the Historical Society are not complete, indicating that the law was never completely carried out. The lists cover the period May 1684 - August 1687. Dorothy came to America from either Flint,or Denbigh, Wales, in the ship "Submission", September 1682. From the log of the "Submission": Ellis Jones, age 45; Jane Jones, age 40; Barbara Jones, age 13; Mary Jones, age 12; Dorothy Jones,age 10; Isaac Jones, age 4 months. The "Pennsylvania Historical Magazine"in a list of names of "Important Colonists, who came in the 'Submission'", mentions Ellis Jones. Ellis was a resident of Bucks County, 1684, but did not remain there long, and in the Welsh Tract Purchases his name appears as having purchased one hundred acres in Nantonell Parish, Radnor. Barbara Jones married her cousin Isaac Jones, and Dorothy Jones married Richard Cantril. Ellis Jones, a weaver and servant to the Governor, and his family were Quakers and as Richard Cantril belonged to the Church of England,Richard and Dorothy were married, to use a Quaker term, "Out of Meeting".Dorothy seems to have been a young lady of considerable spirit and independence of character. She not only married the man of her choice, irrespective of her religious training, but later evidence is found of her love of gaiety and society in an old history of Philadelphia where she figured (danced?) at a masquerade ball, much to the horror of her more quiet friends. She seems to have inherited her love of society from her mother, for the name of Jane Jones appears as witness to the marriage of a great many Quaker of her day, and the Quaker weddings were probably the principal events affording those of that act of expression of their social instinct. The next record we find of Richard and DorothyCantrill was in 1703 Delaware Court Proceedings as extracted by Scharf. Among the grand jury presentments."Dorothy", wife of Richard Canterill, presented for masking in men'sclothes the day after Christmas, "walking and dancing in the house of John Simes at 9 or 10 o'clock at night." John Simes, who gave the masquerade party, was presented for keeping a disorderly house,"a nursery of Debotch ye inhabitants and youth of this city...to ye greef of and disturance of peaceful minds and propagating yeThrone of wickedness amongst us." This was in Wilmington, PA (nowDelaware). The will of Jane Jones, relict of Ellis Jones, executed at Philadelphia, August 3, 1730 and recorded at PhiladelphiaDecember 27, 1732 mentions her grandchildren: Zebulon Cantril, JosephCantril, and Dorothy Cantril, to each of whom she bequeaths "One English shilling, or the value of it in coyn current".!SOURCE: Cantrell Family History, Glenda Ruth Densmore Harrel, Edgecliff,TX !Reference: Early Families of the North Carolina Counties of Rockingham and Stokes with Revolutionary Service, compiledand published by members of James Hunter Chapter, National SocietyDaughters of American Revolution of Madison, North Carolina, published 1977.

Ricky Dent Richard Cantrill was a resident of Philadelphia, PA, prior to 1680. InJuly, 1689, he was appointed administrator of the estate of JosephCantrill, an unmarried nephew, who was drowned in the Schuy lkill River May 10, 1689. It has been impossible to find records to prove the parentage, or birthplace, of Richard Cantrill, but there is no doubt that he came from the Derbyshire branch of the English family. His name does not appear in any list of emigrants and he may have been a descendant of William, or Henry Cantrill, of Virginia. Fisher says, in his "Making of Pennsylvania," that "quite a number of Virginians migrated from that Colony to the Banks of the Delaware before the settlement of Philadelphia by Penn, in 1678, under the rule of the Duke of York." From "Pennsylvania Archives," Vol. XIX: "At a meeting of theCommissioners, 6th of July, 1692. Present Captain William Markham, Robert Turner, John Goodson,... Richard Cantrill requesting a warrant for a lot of 30 ft. upon Third Street, near the Burying Ground, was granted." From Original Records, Deed Book D, 53, page 50: "Richard Cantrill toThomas Hall, Sold 30 ft. x 190 ft. May 13, 1693, Third and Market Streets." In Patent Book A, Vol. II, page 344, there is a lease for twenty-oneyears (May 5, 1702) made by Edward Shippen, Griffith Owen and James Logan, as Proprietary and Governor in Chief of Pennsylvania andTerritories there unto belonging ... of a ... Certain tract of land between Fifth and Sixth streets containing three acres and sixty perches"(here follows a full description by metes and bounds) "to RichardCantrill, Brickmaker, with all woods and underwood and trees, ways,waters, water courses, liberties, profits, commodities, advantages andopportunities whatsoever." The rental was forty shillings per year,"current silver money of the Province."... "Said Richard Cantrill shallbuild, erect and set up a substantial brick house one story and a half inheight and in breadth eighteen feet and in length thirty-six feet; thefirst story of one brick and a half and the second story of one brick,and further that said Richard Cantrill shall make an orchard upon somepart of the hereby granted land, with at least eighty good bearing appletrees planted thereon, and shall also well and sufficiently fence andenclose the said demised land." In "Pennsylvaina Archives" we find: "Cantrill, Old Rights: RichardCantrill, city lot 3 acres, 10 day, 10 month, 1701. Rich. return 3 acres,3 month 1702." Later the Archives record a "Caveat against surveying of land adjoiningRichard Cantrill's estate, issuing to the heirs, or executors of the saidRichard Cantrill, or any under him, May 31, 1753." No record could be found of the disposition of the estate of RichardCantrill, either by his heirs or executors, but he evidently died priorto May 31, 1753. There is a tradition common in the family that the first Cantrill inPhiladelphia had a brick yard and built the first brick house in thatcity. Records show that "the first brick house built in Philadelphia wasowned by Robert Turner in 1684-5," and in the same year RichardCantrill's brother-in-law, Daniel Pegge, also built a brick residence on"Pegge's Run." It is possible that Richard Cantrill had the contract forerecting both of these houses, which would easily account for thetradition in the family.

Ricky Dent William Evans Dent (William Ira, Rawley Evans, Enoch Martin, John) was born in May 1874 in Indiana. He died on Jan 24 1909 in San Jose California. Saloon Keeper William married Fannie Mossman on Jul 19 1892 in San Jose California. Fannie was born in Aug 1873 in Kansas. They had the following children: i. Vernon Bruce Dent was born on Feb 16 1895 in San Jose California. He died on Nov 5 1963 in Hollywood California. The cause of death was Heart Attack. He was buried on Nov 8 1963 in Forest Lawn Memorial Park,Hollywood Hills California. Vernon Bruce Dent was born on February 16, 1895 in San Jose, California and educated there and in Oakland, California. Before entering motion pictures in 1919, he was an accomplished song writer. Familiar to many as the frustrated cop, businessman or landlord in countless Three Stooges shorts, Vernon Dent got his start in show business as a member of a singing troupe traveling in Southern California in the early 1920s. Silent comedian Hank Mann, a member of the famed Keystone Kops, was impressed by Dent's girth (250 pounds) and comic know-how, helped Vernon enter films in 1919. . Mann thought that Dent was good comic material, and gave him a supporting part in a series of two-reel comedies he was making called "Folly Comedies" for the independent Pacific Film Company in 1921-22. In the early '20s, Dent was good enough to be given his own series of comedy shorts. After this series was over, Dent freelanced and worked for such top comics as Larry Semon. He found real niche when he was hired by Mack Sennett, and spent most of the rest of the 1920s at that studio. For such a large man (5'9" and 250 pounds), Dent was surprisingly graceful, and Sennett was enthused to discover that Dent could do some outstanding physical comedy, able to do a pratfall with the best of them. Dent really came into his own in Sennett's Harry Langdon series, which rocketed Langdon to stardom and brought recognition to Dent also. When Langdon left Sennett, Dent stayed and supported such Sennett comics as Billy Bevan and Ralph Graves. Dent and Langdon were reunited in a series of shorts for Educational Pictures in the early '30s, and his value in the series was such that Langdon insisted Dent always receive second billing after him. When Langdon moved to Columbia Pictures in 1934, Dent followed, remaining a mainstay of the Columbia 2-reel stock company until 1953. Here he was featured with such comic luminaries as Andy Clyde, Buster Keaton, Hugh Herbert, Vera Vague, and especially the Three Stooges. Among Dent's dozens of talkie feature-film credits were W. C. Fields' Million Dollar Legs (1932) and You're Telling Me (1934); in one of his rare feature starring roles, Dent played a boisterous, wife- beating sailor in the 1932 "B" Dragnet Patrol. Vernon Dent was in more Three Stooges episodes than any other supporting character. He was in 56 films, not including any remakes. Vernon Dent had no real trademark role. He played just about every type of person possible, from a cop to a chef. There was no character Dent could not play. He played roles both supporting and opposing the stooges. He was in stooges episodes from 1936- 1954. Dent worked especially well with Shemp Howard of the Three Stooges, and the two remained lifelong friends. Shortly after retiring in the mid-'50s, Dent supplemented his acting income by running the concession stand at Westlake Park. Vernon Dent retired in the mid-1950s, due to total blindness brought about by diabetes; the ever-upbeat actor was so well-adjusted to his handicap that many of Dent's close friends were unaware that he was blind. Vernon Dent died on November 5, 1963 in Hollywood, California. Although there were rumors that Dent died because he was a Christian Scientist and refused to take insulin, in an interview several years later Vernon Dent's wife stated that he was not a Christian Scientist, and died from a sudden, massive heart attack. Vernon married Eunice Muncy in Aug 1938 in California. ii. Melville Evans Dent was born in Dec 1898 in San Jose California.
