The county was organized February 14, 1841 and named for
Colonel Richard Gentry of Boone County who fell in the Seminole War in
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.
