      I have a copy of a deed from Aaron Cantrell's heirs to other heirs John and Smith Cantrell. 6 DEC 1835 (White Co, TN Deed Bk. L., roll #63 TN State Library and Archives) Moses Cantrell is listed as one of the heirs and he signed the document with his mark. I also have hand copied a deed from Moses Cantrell 12 OCT 1849 in which he conveyed his interest in slaves to Frances Overstreet "...which I derived from my ancestor Aaron Cantrell..." His sister Polly Johnson and husband Hardy Johnson sold their interest on 13 OCT 1849. (DeKalb co., TN Deeds, vol. D p. 103, roll # 80 TSLA)

    • (Research):Note: Ancestry.com Family Marriage Collection has Aaron Cantrell md to Martha Smith 1785 in Rockingham Co., NC. This does not fit with his birthdate as I have it from other sources. Needs more research.
