Elmira was truly the first WOMEN'S College in the US, as Vassar didn't start up until 1865, and Elmira started in 1855.
'Dr. Milo Jewett, Vassar’s first president, modeled the acceptance requirements and curriculum of his school upon those of Elmira College when Vassar opened in 1865.'

In 1918, Dr. Frederick Lent was chosen as Elmira's next president. During Dr. Lent's term as presidency, students were required to attend chapel services and take courses in which the Bible was studied. Also during this period, the college began an Extension Department that allowed adult men and women to take classes.

Dr. Lent set out to raise one million dollars for use in building more facilities at the college in 1922. By June of the following year, over $700,000 had been raised. This money was used to build a new library and dormitory. In June 1935, Dr. Lent declared his decision to retire. He was born on 10 June 1872 at Freeport, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was the son of Shippy Lent , Jr. and Euphemia Augusta Moore. Frederick Lent married Estelle C. Bolles, daughter of Henry C. Bolles and Annie H.

John Shippy Lent (M)
b. circa 1835, d. 26 September 1877
Pop-up Pedigree

     John Shippy Lent was buried at Hilltop Cemetery, Freeport, Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was naturalized; Master Mariner (Deep Sea Captain). He At time of his death, John was Master of the barque 'J. W. OLIVER', and was in the Dutch East Indies, accompanied by his wife, four children, and his brother, Manning Lent, First Mate on the vessel. He was often seen listed also as 'Shippy', especially in Census records for Digby County. In birth record of Jesse Goodwin, it shows father as James D. Lent, and mother as Melissa Thurber, marriage in 1859. The date is same as other records, just the father's name is either incorrectly transcribed or there's a problem with this connection?

Depending on source, John Shippy Lent may be the one who married a woman who left for NY with child, then he married another (Melissa - if 'Shippy'). There may have bee two Lent men who had wives who left them for the call of the city... Just know that this Shippy is possibly one of them.

This is a direct quote from another researcher:

'In family notes it says that Shippy married a NY girl, had one son James, Wife left for NY with the child and never returned. Later Shippy married Melissa.' He was born circa 1835. He was the son of James Lent and Sarah Elizabeth (Sally) Brinton. John Shippy Lent married Melissa Thurber, daughter of Benjamin Nelson Thurber and Lucretia Lent, in 1859 at Digby County, Nova Scotia, Canada. John Shippy Lent died on 26 September 1877 at Batavia, Java, East Dutch Indies.

QUITE Interesting... in Civil War Pension records, Jesse G. Lent of Massachusetts, listed as 'invalid, 26-Mar-1925, unit listed as Company C, 8th Massachusetts Infantry. So...HOW is he listed in Civil War Pension records? Unless, of course, some S-A War records were mixed up in the microfilm. After all, the Civil War ended before he was even born! This unit better matches S-A records, so will presume a mix-up in listing.


Jesse, Florence and three children listed in 1900 US Census for Marblehead, MA. Unfortunately, can't make out names of sons in this particular census, so hope to find later.
