      Here is the link to my WorldConnect page on Frances Beallís father Lloyd. Much of this was sent to me by one of his California descendants.

      The story passed down in our branch (Fannyís daughter Elizabeth who m. Obed Swearingen) was that her father went to California during the gold rush and they never saw him again. I found his name and the name of Fannyís mother Elizabeth Key on her Oklahoma death certificate.

      Jacob Seth Kent, was the son of Joseph Bell and Elizabeth (Staley) Kent, and was born September 25, 1832, in Pike Township, Warren County, Indiana. He married to Francis N. Beall On October 19, 1854 close to St. Joseph, Buchanan County, Missouri. (Taken from Jacob's Civil War Pension Records). Marriage record of State of Missouri, Buchanan County, states they were married by Geo. T. Hoagland. Jacob and Francis (Fannie), lived in Buchanan, Andew, Gentry, Missouri and also in Doniphan County, Kansas, near the town of Troy. Jacob moved his family there as the Civil War was getting started. It was there that he joined the Kansas 13th Volunteer Infantry on August 15, 1862. On June 15th or 16th, 1865 he was Honorably Discharged at the rank of Sergeant at Little Rock, Arkansas. Jacob Seth Kent's personal description at enlistment was as follows: Height 6", complexion dark, color of eyes hazel brown, hair color black, and his occupation was a farmer. His pension certificate number to 886696. One place everyone can go see the battlefield Jacob was at, is in Arkansas, southwest of Fayetteville, Prairie Grove Battlefield, on highway 62. When we were there visiting Uncle Jabe and aunt Ada, they took us there, not knowing, Till I read the Civil War Company's who were there. Jacob heard of the Opening of Indian Lands, and Jacob, Fannie and their children started moving a herd of cattle, from Stanberry, Mo. They stayed on the Missouri side of the state line. One of there daughters died on the trip down, and is buried near the corner of Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas. The family camped out side of Tulsa, Oklahoma for a while, and let the cattle rest, from the long trip. Then went on to Boomer town, out were Boomer Lake is north of Stillwater, Oklahoma and waited for the land rush there. Jacob, got land northeast of Morrison, Ok., one of their daughters rode in to Strip Opening, and also got land, but Jacob made her give it to a a man who had several children that did not get any land. I think it was Laura who make the run. From what different cousins of my dad told me, they were older. One was Flossie Boyer (Swearingen) of Wichita, Kansas The other was Mattie's daughter. Jacob liked to drink, and I think maybe liked to hurt people. He would pay the children to let him pinch them I understand it to be a hard pinch. He also did not want his daughter's to leave, My grandmother Margaret (Maggie) got married against his wishes. She and her family did not see her parents till after, uncle George was a couple years old. Laura Kent (Cunyon) also had problems, with the same thing. Jacob Seth Kent died on April 16, 1916 at Morrison, Noble County, Oklahoma, his wife Francis (Fannie Beall) Kent died June 16, 1919 at Morrison, Noble County, Oklahoma. Both are buried at the Morrison Cemetery, which are also some of their children.
