About Andrew Kent

KENT, ANDREW (ca. 1798–1836). Andrew Kent, Alamo defender, son of Isaac and Lucy (Hopkins) Kent, was born in Kentucky in the late 1790s. In 1816 he married Elizabeth Zumwalt of Kentucky in Montgomery County, Missouri. Later, he and his family immigrated to Texas and settled in Gonzales, where Kent farmed and may have also done carpentry. On February 23, 1836, he and his son, David, were mustered into the Gonzales Ranging Company of Mounted Volunteers. Kent rode to the relief of the Alamo with this group and arrived on March 1, 1836. His son stayed behind in Gonzales. Kent died in the battle of the Alamo on March 6, 1836. Kent County, established in 1876, was named for him.
