Mildred Lee Ackerman Jent

February 17, 2008

Submitted by Peggy Ackerman

The Rev. Eddie Jent officiated with burial in Old Liberty Baptist Church Cemetery in Warren County. Survivors include one son, three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

*Note from submitter:   It was a privilege and joy to know Mrs. Jent. I treasure the letters that she wrote me about Ackerman family history, and I wish I had been able to record my telephone conversations with her. She was an accomplished family researcher--before the days of the internet.  Her report on the Goodrum family is available on the Allen County, Kentucky Rootsweb site (http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyallen/Goodrum1.htm). It is thorough, illuminating, and touching. We regret that she did not publish information on her Ackerman line, for she knew many wonderful handed-down stories.  My personal regret is that I was unable to honor her request that I determine the name of her great-grandmother, the first wife of Jacob Ackerman.
