Hey there. I can help some! Ira Brandon Sentell (1893-1967)is buried in Longacre Cemetery on the road that leads to Little Coon, (around the old area known as Rash).

My grandmother was one of 8, daughter of James Luther Sentell and Mary Jane Knight. (I have sibling names and some info on the next generation for each.) James descended from Augustus II who was married to Eliza Ann Matthews. His daddy, GusI was born in 1819 in Ga. and married Elizabeth Cargile from Va.

James' brothers were named Augustus III, (Gus); Wilson, (Wils); Isaac, (Ike); and Lee. Sisters were Lula Belle, (Lou); Ida, Nancy Caroline, ('Line-ee'); and Anna.`

James' daddy Gus had a brother James Monroe Sentell who married Frances Matthews and had the following kids: (Dr.) James, Walter B., Nanny, Sally, Stella, Evelyn (Terry)(?), Texas, Florence, Ella, Rena, Ada, and 2 who died in infancy. I wondered if Ira belonged to this group but can't say for sure. I can give you more details if you let me know.

Would really love to hear back from you as my grandma's baby brother and sister are still alive and may be able to help place Ira if my info doesn't do the trick. Keep me posted and best of luck. Address is Deb Allen
