death Cert list date of death as 11 April 1932 Young County, Texas and Cemetery as Prospect Cemetery.

There marriage Certificate states that there cert. was issued 7 June 1869 and executed 9 June 1869 by John Dunn.

Susan (West) Cantrell/Cantwell is not in the 1850 Census with her parents William West and Susannah Carrico. She is in the 1860 Census with her parents as 8 years old. this puts her birth about 1852 not 1850.

The probabte record for James Johnson Cantrell is about 70-75 pages long.

Most of the probate centers on the distribution of money form the estate after the death of J.J. Cantrell. His wife was 83 years old and in feeble health according to the probate and requests an exexutor of the estate. The estate continues from 1932-1943 when the estate made its final money distribution.

The most important in the information is that Mrs. Susan Catnrell, his wife was living in Young County at the time of the petition 4 May 1932. She states that J.J. Cantrell died in Clay County, Texas on 1 April 1932. The probate mentions that his estate was worth $4000 at the time of his death.

Bank: $553.00

1 horse, 1 mule, 4 cattel - $230.00

Homestead, 100 acres at Markley, Texas -$800.00

280 acres of land in Mountain Park, OK - $2800.00

The land in Young County is leased for oil and mineral rights between 1932-1943. The livestock are sold and disbursements are made. The house is re-roofed.

The bulk of the probate is annual account disbursements by the executor of the estate.

Notes for SUSAN ANN WEST:

Susan Head stone in Prospect Cemetery, Clay County, Texas states that she was born 4 Nov. 1850. I do not believe this to be correct. on the 1850 Census Susan's age is listed as 8 years old. this would put her birthday in 1852.
