Have you see "The LENT book", the 1902/3 book by Nelson B. Lent about
the NY Dutch Lent/Van Lent family? I have a copy at home and can do a
look up for you. It is readily available from various genealogy
reprinters for around $35. I can't vouch for it's accuracy...

Lorine McGinnis Schulze <>, the owner of the
excellent Olive Tree genealogy web site (
has quite a bit of information about old New York Dutch. She mentions
an article she wrote that may be of interest to LENT researchers, see

I don't know if it is published yet, but I'll be buying a copy it if
