Hello cousins,

Thanks to family, friends and distant cousins that I have met here, I
have been able to trace the Cantrells back tp Richard Cantril 1660
England, however there is some information I am missing and having a
hard time finding anything on one twig of my Cantrell tree and it is
on my Great Uncle Jessie Forest Cantrell.

I will start with Forest Grand Parents:

James Marion Cantrell b 3-30-1849 Rutherford Co, YN, d 8-23-1928,
Murfreesboro, Rutherford Co, TN, bur Evergreen Cemetery, Murfreesboro,
TN, m 12-22-1867 Cannon Co, TN to Martha Jane Summers b 12-15-1849,
TN, d 2-6-1945 Murfreesboro, Rutherford Co, TN, bur Evergreen
Cemetery, Murfreesboro, TN, they had the foll children:

Lucinda "Lizzie" Elixabeth Cantrell b 3-2-1869 Warren Co, TN, d 8-8-

Now here is what I know about Forest parents:

James "Jimmy" Thomas Cantrell b 3-31-1881 Murfreesboro, Rutherford Co,
TN d 3-29-1957 Nashville, Davidson Co, TN, bur Evergreen Cem,
Murfreesboro, TN, m Lillian Jessie Bragg b 12-19-1887, TN, d 1-25-
1961, TN, bur Evergreen Cem, Murfreesboro, TN

children:

Walter Thomas Cantrell b 7-15-1910 Murfreesboro, TN, d 2-9-1978
Smyrna, Rutherford Co, TN, bur Smryna, Rutherford Co, TN, m ca 1931
to Grace Gibson Erwin b 5-27-1908 Lewisburg, TN, d 7-29-1955
Nashville, Davidson Co, TN, bur Lewisburg, TN., They had 3 children
Bob, Jimmy (my dad) and Tommy.

Jessie Forest Cantrell b 12-21-1918 Davidson Co, TN, d 2-1979 Detroit,
Wayne Co, MI, m Mary unk, and these are the children I know of,
there are more, Donnie, Mickey, Marilyn.

Does any of this sound familiar? I hope so, my Uncle Bob said he
received a call years ago from one of Forest kids, could not remember
which one and they were in the Austin, San Antonio area of TX, so I
know this is a long shot, but, I figured what the heck.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
