Have you seen the obituary in The Ritzville Times, Thursday, December 17, 1908, issue for Mr. Zent? I could not find him in the Ritzville Cemetery. Maybe he was taken to Walla Walla for burial as it appears that the obit was a reprint from the Walla Walla paper.
Daniel J. Zent, who three months ago moved from Walla Walla to Pasco to make his home, is dead, after several weeks' illness, death following a stroke of paralysis. During his residence here he was engaged in the real estate and insurance business, and continued it in Pasco. He was born in Buffalo, N.Y., May 8, 1839, and served in the Civil war. He lived in Kansas, Colorado, Oregon and Washington since the war. He is survived by his wife and 10 children, as follows: F. P. Zent, Everett; Mrs. F. F. O'Leary, Oak Harbor; E. W. Zent, Gooding, Idaho; Judge W. W. Zent, Ritzville; Mrs. James Kerr, Midway, B. C.; Mrs. E. T. Dell, Kivna; George W. Zent, Kate Zent, Pasco; D. E. Zent, Spokane and Mrs. T. R. Wood, Seattle. -Walla Waal Bulletin
