Richard Cantrell 3 Jan 1998
CANTRELL, FRYE, I am Dr. Richard Cantrell and I was raised in Albany, Georgia. I was born in 1954 and my father was James Howard Cantrell. He was born in March 1915 or 1916, probably in Tennessee, his father was Marion CANTRELL. He supposedly was married to a Cherokee Indian, last name FRYE or FRY. As both grandparents passed on prior to my birth and my father spoke little of them except of his Indian heritage, I have little to go on. I know that my Grandparents were married in Tennessee probably at the turn of the century give or take ten years but I don’t know the county or anything like that and I know that the Cantrell’s came to Tennessee from Georgia or South Carolina. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

NORTH, I am looking for John NORTH b abt 1780 NC married Jane “Jincy” Fulks in Knox Co KY. John and Jane’s son, Mariarter, was born in Tenn 1824. There daughter Malinda was also born in Tenn in 1820. I found the will of EDWARD NORTH in Hawkins Co Tenn 1813. NORTH isn’t a very common name, so I thought perhaps there is some relation between John and Edward. Both men’s descendants moved into southeast KY and some on to Indiana and on westward.
