1.     Scroll or use your browser "find" function to search this Index for a particular feature name or location.

2.     Copy the Latitude and Longitude of your selected feature on a piece of paper for later reference. ( 311613N is 31° 16’ 13”  and 0953747W is 95° 37’ 47” – drop the leading 0  )

3.     Click on the name of the feature to view a map of the county. (Features submitted by other than USGS will appear immediately and no more action on you part to locate your feature.)

4.     Note that as you move the cursor across the map that the latitude and longitude of the cursor is given in boxes on the left side of the page.

5.     Move the cursor to display the latitude and longitude you recorded in step 2, and then left click. This click will center your selected feature in the center of the map. This is the location of your selected feature. If the copied lat & long is given in decimal degrees (31.78923) select DD.DD in the coordinates box directly under the Lat & long boxes.

6.     Note that you can Zoom In or out by clicking on the Zoom  + or at the bottom of the map, and that clicking on the red corner markers move the entire map.

7.     Items submitted by sources other than the USGS show approximate locations only. They have not been surveyed but usually are given to editor as verbal or written descriptions.

8.     Locations of creeks & streams are given at the mouth of the creek or stream, i.e. where it joins a larger stream.

Kent

TX

Bosque

vanished community

unknown

Was located on the Brazos River at Kimball’s Bend, 1.5 miles below Kimball community, and near Lake Whitney in the northeastern corner of present Bosque County. The community began as a colony when the area of Bosque County was still part of Milam and McLennan counties. In 1850 English Universal Immigration Company, a British enterprise, bought 27,000 acres of land to establish a colony devoted to both agricultural and manufacturing endeavors. George Gatlin, the artist, may have been one of the promoters of the colony. Thirty English families, consisting of 125 people, arrived in the fall of 1850 and in January 1851. They founded a town called Kent. Five immigrating families soon abandoned the project and received individual headrights from the state. Although Sir Edward Belcher, special agent for the immigration company, attempted to attract more settlers, he failed. In 1852, Lieutenant Charles Finch Mackenzie, leader of the colony, and the other colonists abandoned the venture. Some colonists moved to Fort Graham, located across the river in Hill County, which was vacated by the army in November 1853. The town of Kent dissolved. In the 1970s only ruins of log houses were left at the site.

Davis: Frontier Book Publishers, 1971), 56; 1998-1999 Texas Almanac, 153; See Dorothy Waties Renick, “The City of Kent,” Southwestern Historical Quarterly 29 (1925-1926).
