Silas Bent1

M, #14355, b. May 16, 1768, d. November 20, 1827
Father*Silas Bent1 b. April 14, 1744, d. April 4, 1818
Mother*Mary Carter1 b. 1747/48
      September 17, 1806 Thirty-eight year old Silas Bent Jr. and wife Martha Kerr, Bent arrived in St. Louis, Missouri from Ohio. Six days before, Sept. 23, 1806 the date, Lewis and Clarke returned to St. Louis from the shores of the Pacific. Their oldest child was Charles Bent, then 6 years old, born in 1800. Was Charles on the dock with his father to see Lewis and Clarke return. Did that inspire the quest for Western adventure in his soul? Or was the Western itch already there, inspired by his family's historic quest to settle new land in America?
In 1638, eighteen years after the sailing of the Mayflower, his ancestor, John Bent, had loaded a wife, Martha, and five children, Robert, Peter, William, Anne (Agnes), and John, aboard the brig "Covenant" and had fled from Charles I's ship levy taxes to a new home in the new colony of Massachusetts. There with fifty-four other settlers, John had helped hew the town of Sudbury out of the forest west of Boston. The settltement of *Boston began in 1630. It was a brief 8 years later that the Bent family arrived in Boston. With his son Peter he later laid out Marlboro. Indians burned the latter villiage on one occasion and on during another attack scalped (but did not kill) one of Peter Bent's children-due bills of settlement which the St. Louis Bent's would in turn pay in full.
It was a prodigiously prolific family. By the time of the Revolution, Massachusetts teemed with Bents. According to an unverifiable family tradition, Silas Bent, Charles Grandfather, led one of the three bands of "Indians" who pitched British tea into Boston's harbor. 2 (See notes) Silas joined the minutemen immediately after Lexintington in 1775, served throughout the war, and afterward became a Lieutenant colonel of the 7th Regiment of Mass. Militia.* See entries under Wars.
In 1788 twenty-eight year old, Silas Bent Jr. was sent ahead to the northern bank of the Ohio River to find a place to settle on the 1173 acres of land his father purchased along with old friend and neighbor , General Rufus Putnam, and two hundred and eighty Revolutionary war veterans, in the historic Ohio Company of Associates land purchase, of a million and a half acres. He arrived shortly after Putnam's original forty-eight settlers had founded Marietta, Ohio. Silas left a prosperous farm on the outskirts of Rutland, Mass. In the spring of 1789 his father, forty-five year old, Silas,with his wife and twelve children, loaded his goods into ox-carts for a racking trip across the mountains to a skow on the headwaters of the Ohio. Along the way he buried one of his offspring. They did not stay long in Marietta, but moved sisteen miles downstream and settled the town of Belpre, Ohio, known for a time as Bent's Post Office, in 1790.
To what extent Silas Jr. may have been involved in the furious Indian wars that greeted the tide of emigration down the Ohio is not known. It scarecely seems likely he remained untouched. Although Putnam's stockade , Campus Martius, protected Marietta, the more distant clearings along the river burned and bled. Two expeditions of soldiers and raw militia, dispatched to punish the Indians, were hacked to pieces before Mad Antony Wayne came from retirement and crushed Chief Little Turtle's Miamis and their allies at Fallen Timber, near Lake Erie, in 1794.
Young Silas Bent Jr. moved on in the mid 1790's to the brand new village of Wheeling, Virginia - now West Virginia where he studied law. He continued another twenty miles or so to an odd fragment of land that lies between the river and the Pennsylvania border. To a small hamlet of Charleston in Brooke Co., not the capitol to be. He opened a store and married Martha Kerr, ten years his junior. In 1802 Silas Bent was appointed postmaster of Brooke County Court House.
They had eleven children; seven sons and four daughters. the oldest was named Charles. Silas applied for a job to Rufus Putnam, now Surveyor General of the United States, after Julianna's birth in 1801and Johns in 1803. He became the Surveyor Gemeral after Putnam and was appointed to the rank of Deputy. His forth child Lucy was born March 8, 1805. (Lucy became the second wife of Charles Russell.) He was appointed principal deputy surveyor of the Louisana Territory. Silas became justice of the Court of Common Pleas and between 1810 and 1813 was appointed by President Madison as judge of the Supreme Court of the territory, a position he held until the office was abolished in 1821 by the admission of Missouri as a state. Thereafter uintil his death on Nov.20, 1827, aged fifty-nine, he fuinctioned as clerk of the St. Louis Court.
Charles and his favorite brother William Wells Bent born May 23, 1809 are the trappers and fur traders that founded Fort Bent along with Ceran St. Vrain. The Carrs were in the keel boat trade on the Missouri river about that time. I have not verified this however. The young Bents went to school at Jefferson College in Cannonsburg, Penn. Julianna Bent was the first to go further west. Sixteen years old in 1817 she married Lilburn Boggs from Lexington Kentucky. He moved with his pregnant wife to Boone's County two hundred miles up the Missouri to Franklin. He was the deputy factor at Fort Osage and the New Harmony Mission. There at Fort Osage, among the Indians and trappers, Julianna, not yet out of her teens, bore her second son. A month later she died in St. Louis. Lilburn Boggs married Panthea Grant Boone, a granddaughter of Daniel Boone. This remarriage brought no weakening of ties with the Bents. There is also a sister Mary and brothers Robert, George, Edward and Silas Jr. in 1828 Robert was twelve and George was fourteen.

It appears from the notation on Agnes Goslings ancestrial file that John Bents mother, Agnes Gosling sailed to Mass. the following year after John arrived. She sailed in 1639 and died on board ship in Boston Harbor. His father died in 21 Jul of 1631. She must have followed her son to the new world. I wonder if she traveled alone or if others in the family traveled with her. She would have been sixty-one years old. I see in reviewing the files on Agnes's children that daughter, Agnes, born in 1602 is noted to have been buried at sea April 28, 1639. She would have been thirty-seven at the time of her death. Another mystery is that there are four children of Robert and Agnes that have the same birth date of 10 Dec 1599. Either she gave birth to quadtriplets or there are duplicate entries.

Notes from a paper that I have but, I do not know the source.
"History of Sudbury," was in the Ticonderoga Campaign in 1776, in the Company of Captain Wheeler, Jonathan Bent. Written beside this information are these names: Eleezer Parks, John Parks, John Park.
Written on the same paper is this information:
page 46. John Bent - The same year of his arrival in this country, 1638 aboard the Confidence, he returned to England for others of his family, and came back in the ship "Johnathan" the next year, 1639. His sister Agnes Blanchard and her infant child died on the voyage; and his mother, Agnes Gosling Bent, also died on the voyage or soon after the ship reached our shores.
The Bent family has from the first been quite numerous in Sudbury. Some of them have long been residents of Cochituate, formerly a part of the town.1 Silas Bent, son of Silas Bent and Mary Carter, was born on May 16, 1768 in Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.1
Silas moved along with Silas Bent and Mary Carter in 1789 from Massachusetts to Marietta, Washington County, Ohio.2
Silas moved along with Silas Bent and Mary Carter in 1790 from Marietta, Ohio to Belpre, Washington County, Ohio.3
Young Silas drifted north to Wheeling, Virginia and began studying law. Finding no profit in this profession he continued north to Charleston, Virginia (now Wellsburg, West Virginia), opened a store and married.3,4
Silas married Martha Kerr in 1798 at Charleston, Kanawha County, West Virginia.1 Silas Bent was appointed Postmaster in 1802 at Charlestown, Brooke County, West Virginia, by his father's oldest neighber and fellow officer, General Rufus Putnam. He was no more successful with his store or his term as postmaster then he hand been with the law profession.3 He was appointed a surveyor in 1803 in Ohio, by General Rufus Putnam, Surveyor General of the United States.3 He was appointed Associate Judge of the Washington County Court of Common Pleas on February 17, 1804 in Washington County, Ohio.3,4 He was appointed deputy surveyor in charge of the Louisiana Territory in July, 1806 in St. Louis, Louisiana Territory.3,4 He and Martha Kerr moved in September, 1806 from Marietta, Ohio to Louisiana Territory. Moving with Silas were Charles Bent, Juliannah Bent, John Bent and Lucy Bent.3
In 1813 he was appointed as a Judge of the Superior court of the Territory of Missouri.5
Silas died on November 20, 1827 in St. Louis, Missouri, at age 59 at his country residence, just North of the St. Louis Arsenal.1,4

William Bent
      Part of a family that built the most extensive commercial network in the frontier southwest, William Bent outlived the days of trappers and traders, surviving to see his world destroyed by the relentless pressure of white expansion.
Born in St. Louis in 1809, one of four sons of a Missouri Supreme Court Justice, William Bent followed his older brother, Charles, into the fur-trading business. William was trapping along the upper Arkansas river by age fifteen, and in 1829 he helped his brother take a wagon train of trade goods down the Santa Fe Trail.
With a partner, the Bents soon formed a trading company that bought and sold across the southwest -- Mexican blankets, New Mexico sheep, buffalo robes from the Plains, pelts from the Rocky Mountains, horses, mules and all manner of manufactured goods. At the center of this network stood Bent's Fort, a massive adobe outpost on the north bank of the Arkansas River in present-day Colorado, which William Bent constructed in 1833 and where he served as field manager of the company's far-flung operations.
Life at Bent's Fort involved prolonged contact with the Indian peoples of the southern Plains, and like many white traders and trappers, William Bent came to occupy a sort of cultural middle ground between the Indian and white worlds. In 1835 he married the Cheyenne Owl Woman, with whom he raised four children until her death in 1847. His two subsequent marriages were also to Indian women.
At the same time, however, Bent's trade in government supplies gave him a quasi-official role within the region. In 1846, at the outbreak of the Mexican War, it was natural that Bent would be called on to guide General Phil Kearney's troops along the Santa Fe Trail into New Mexico. Three years later, it was perhaps Bent's assumption that the government would pay him back for all his services that caused him to blow up Bent's Fort rather than sell it to the army at what he considered an insultingly low price.
In 1857, Bent constructed a new outpost thirty-eight miles downstream from his old fort, gathered a group of settlers and created the first permanent American colony in Colorado. Two years later, however, in 1859, the Pikes Peak gold rush brought a flood of Americans into the region, and Bent suddenly found himself cutoff from the middle ground on which he had operated for so long. As tensions rose between the expanding white community and the embattled Cheyenne, Bent strove mightily, both as an Indian agent for a brief time and as a private citizen, to maintain a measure of peace and mutual toleration. In the end, however, all his efforts failed.
On November 29, 1864, Colonel John Chivington marched toward the Cheyenne's Sand Creek reservation, determined to destroy the Indians encamped there, a band led by the peace chief Black Kettle. Chivington posted a guard on William Bent to prevent him from warning the Cheyenne leader, and he forced Bent's son, Robert, to guide him to the site. There he and his volunteers slaughtered more than two hundred men, women and children, taking scalps and other grisly trophies which they later exhibited to cheering crowds in Denver.
The Sand Creek Massacre turned William Bent's world upside down. Not only had his son Robert been made an unwilling accessory to the atrocity, Bent's other three children, Charles, Julia, and George, had been living in Black Kettle's encampment at the time of the attack. After the massacre, Robert, who moved much more in the white world, testified against Chivington, though to no avail. His brother Charles, meanwhile, joined the militant "Dog Soldiers," a group of young Cheyenne warriors committed to driving the Americans from their homeland by any means necessary. At one point Charles apparently tried to kill even his own father.
William Bent, his heart broken, soon moved to Westport, Kansas, where he died in 1869.
An authentic reconstruction of Bent's Old Fort exists today near La Junta, Colorado.2,3,4
