I am looking for information on the descendants of Phillip J. Zent, b 1792 France and Catherine Uebelhoer b. 1798 France, coming to USA in 1827 and settling in the Williamsville,Erie, NY area. My records say that Phillip was part of Napoleon's rear guard at the time of retreat from Moscow, one of 1000 captured, and one of 10 finally released. I am descended from his daughter Mary Catheren Zent and Louis Philip Snyder. There are 6 other children: P.J., Joseph, Catherine, George, Salome and Daniel (Daniel moved to Washington state). Would like to hear from anyone in the Zent family.
