Seeking parents of Mary / Maria / Mariah ZENT, born ca. 1817 in Ohio, who married 20 Aug 1837 in Marion Co., OH, to Joshua STROUP. They were found in the 1840 census of Marion [now Morrow] Co., OH, and the 1850 census of Morrow Co., OH. They had a daughter, Elizabeth "Lizzie" STROUP, born 19 May 1838, who married Allen W. OLDFIELD.
Maria apparently died between 1850 and 1860 because, in the 1860 census, we find Joshua with wife Elizabeth Ellen in Hocking Co., OH.
Maria ZENT is surely connected to the other ZENT families in Morrow Co., OH, but how?
