Hi, I'm originally from Chicago now but moved to Alabama in 2003. My father was originally from Rutherford TN, but passed away in 1970 (he moved to Chicago when he was a teen). I doubt if my grandparents are still alive, but it's possible I may have extended family there in Rutherford, TN. My mother always looked down on my father's family, she also looks down on me as we haven't spoken in many years. If anyone has heard of anyone with the last name of Largent (my grandfather was Clarence and grandmother Lillian). Any and all help appreciated. Thank you!

Default Father's name

My father's name was James "Jack" Wendell Largent (and my grandfather's name was Clayton not Clarence and I apologize for that. My mother is a very hateful person, which I have known for many years but finally realized she is the one who has to deal with it and not me, and would not let me look for my dad's family when I became an adult. After that I had some lost years myself, but I have never forgotten my father or my family.

This search is resolved. Family found!

Pookie, your Largent family is very excited to get to know you and tell you all about your roots. I sent you a direct message with their contact information and I gave them your email.

Good luck!
