The county was organized February 14, 1841 and named for Colonel Richard Gentry of Boone County who fell in the Seminole War in 1837.
Its county seat is Albany.
Is situated in the northwestern part of the State, bounded on the north by the Iowa State Line. The face of the country is undulating, diversified with prairie and timber, and well watered by Grand River and its tributaries. Indications of rich beds of copper and an excellent quality of bituminous coal have been found, but no banks or mines have been opened. The soil is very fertile, and well adapted to the production of all grains and grasses suitable to this climate. The county is settled by intelligent, industrious people, and immigrants will find excellent inducements for any kind of business.
