  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: Joseph spent his early boyhood in Philadelphia, PA. After he married Catharina Heath, they lived in New Castle Co., PA, on or near the site of the present city of Wilmington, Delaware, and were attendants at Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church before 1720. It is probable that Catharina was a daughter of one of the Old Swedes, first settlers of this section, but this could not be verified. Their first three children were baptized at the old historic church still used and known as Old Swedes, which is one of the oldest and quaintest churches in this country.

      BIOGRAPHY: The city of Wilmington is built on the Swedish "church land" and the charter for the town was granted in 1735. At the time Joseph Cantrill went there it was known as Christina. There is evidence from scattered records in New Castle County, that descendants of Richard Cantrill lived there from before 1720 until 1797, though the majority moved south during this period.
