Joseph GENTRY, born in Hanover County, VA about 1728, son of Samuel & Ann ---, married about 1753 to Agness [sic] whose maiden name is thought to be SHELTON. (Reference: Joseph sold land in Lunenburg County, VA in 1756 to William SHELTON, in which he gives his wife's name as Agness.) The author speculates on name since Joseph & Agnes(s)' oldest son was named Shelton. Eight children are listed, with birth dates and order speculative, but the early children "without doubt" born in Lunenburg county, VA, the later ones in Surry county, NC, where several of his brothers also had moved.
Joseph was extremely active in land purchases and sales in Lunenburg and Surry counties, NC. Most holdings in the former were on Reedy Creek; in the latter on Fisher's River, a tributary of the larger Yadkin River.

Text: Born about 1720 in Hanover county, VA. "We can reason that Joseph was next in age to Nicholas among Samuel's children even though his brother Allen may have married before Joseph and appeared to have children older than his. This reasoning is based on the fact that Allen was in Lunenburg County for at least three years before he acquired land of his own, suggesting that Allen probably lived with Joseph during those first years."
"On the other hand, given Joseph's rather flamboyant, outgoing (one might even say 'aggressive') nature revealed in court records, he may simply have been more assertive than his brother [Allen]."

He occasionally signed his name with the letter "G," and this may be the reason why some sources give his name with this as a middle initial.

Text: Joseph died Apr 1813 in Surry county, NC.
"There are a variety of loose papers relating to the settlement of this estate that are filed in the North Carolina State Archives. Among these is a listing of debts and credits relating to the estate, the last one of which, dated 28 Apr 1813, reads, 'debit to cash for Nixon for coffin, 12/-'... This clearly establishes Joseph's date of death as some time in April, 1813."

Text: Joseph had an active court presence... He was involved in a number of suits in which he was brought into court for the payment of debt, and also cases where he sued others for debt. He was involved in two cases where he sued another man for assault and battery. On another occasion, judgment was against him for "profane swearing." In still another suit, the nature of which was not disclosed but which must have been of a rather serious nature, Joseph was indicted by a grand jury in a case that went to a jury trial in which Joseph was declared not guilty. The court minutes together reflect a man who was the opposite of retiring--an active, forceful, vigorous member of the pioneer community.

Text: Joseph apparently lagged behind his brothers David & Nicholas in moving to Lunenburg County, Virginia. The first reference was his purchase in 1752 for 165 pounds of 490 acres on the south side of Reedy [Reddy] Creek, originally granted partly (350 acres) to Michael MACKEY on 13 Jun 1743 at Williamsburg; and partly (448 acres) to Abraham COCKE on 1 Oct 1747 at Williamsburg. Witness: Paule COVINGTON (cites: Lunenburg County DEED BOOK 3-147, dated 5 Dec 1752)
On 29 Oct 1756 Joseph and his wife Agness sold 274 acres of this land on Reedy Creek for 77 pounds to William SHELTON of Albemarle county, VA [who is believed to be his father-in-law]. Witnesses: Geo. WALTON; Simon GENTRY; Nicholas GENTRY [his brothers] (cites: DEED BOOK 4-335).
He lived close enough to his brothers Nicholas and Simon in 1757, and to Nicholas and Richard in 1765, to be included in the same road maintenance gangs.
Joseph's only appearance in Louisa County [VA] records was as a witness in 1762 to his father's final deed of sale of the family's Dirty Swamp property.
About 1768 Joseph moved to North Carolina, when he was listed in two Rowan County tax lists in the period just before it was divided to form Surry County.
On 13 Dec 1770, Joseph GENTRY of North Carolina with Agness GENTRY his wife, and Allen GENTRY with Mary his wife of Lunenburg conty and Cumberland Parish, sold to Samuel JETER of the same county for 100 pounds 118 acres in Lunenburg county on the lower side of Ready Creek. Said tract of land part of a larger parcel originally granted to Michael MACEY and conveyed to Joseph MINOR and by him conveyed to Joseph GENTRY. Signed: Joseph ("X") GENTRY; Allen ("A") GENTRY. Witnesses: Wm JETER; Francis DEGRAFFENREIDT; Wm JETER Jr. Acknowledged by Joseph GENTRY and Allen GENTRY; Mary relinquished her dower rights. [This was the balance of original land sold in other transactions.] (cites: DEED BOOK 11-423)
Joseph and his family were in Surry County, NC records repeatedly from 1771 onwards.

Records of the Surry County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions authorized Joseph GENTRY to operate a ferry across the Yadkin River in 1772, and set the rates to be charged users. This suggests that he must have been living on the land listed in the DEED BOOKS below at the earlier date.

(c) [About six months later], on 14 Feb 1775, in DEED BOOK (A-182):
Deed for the sale of 181 acres of land to Matthew BROOKS by Joseph GENTRY. [Part of the land described above in (a).]
