    After posting the documentations for BARTON LOVELACE, first husband of LUCY WATSON, I had to revise my own direct line back to Capt. Abraham Cantrell and his first wife ??? ??? because he didn't marry Lucy Watson Lovelace until after 1786. This is what I now have.

    Comments are welcome along with any other proofs or information. John "Johnny Flat" Cantrell's mother wasn't Lucy Watson Lovelace. I need any information for his full siblings Thomas and Richard. Mildred Seburn Clark

    Marriage Notes for Abraham Cantrell and Lucy Watson:
    Date of marriage to Lucy Watson of 1785 is from David Hennessee. It would have been after 1786 when charges were brought against Barton Lovelace, Lucy's first husband. He supposedly drowned in the Potomac Rive. No proof. William Cantrell drowned in the Potomac River during the Revolutionary War.

    The following letter was written by Nancy Strother Smith (Mrs. J. W. Lee), daughter of Rebecca Maizie Davis Smith, dau. of John Lewis Davis and Ellender "Nellie" Cantrell of DeKalb Co, TN. Rebecca Maizie Davis was the family Historian from the time she was a child until she died. She married James W. Lee. Nancy Strother Smith Lee gave each of her three children a copy of her journal. James W. Lee, Jr.'s Journal was passed down to James W. Lee, III who has posted items on the DeKalb County site on usgenweb. Nancy sent the letter to Jerry L. Cantrell who died in the automobile crash on his way to be married in Las Vegas. Jerry's things went to various family members. Warren G. Cantrell ended up with some of the letters and Ann Goszinski, aunt of Sandy Wainwright ended up with some of them. Most valuable to Mildred I. Seburn Clark is the following letter to Jerry L. Cantrell from Nancy Strother Smith Lee (Mrs. J. W. Lee). Sandy Wainwright gave me what is below:

    The letter:
    Now John, Called "Johnny Flathead", married Mary Adkins. Their children were:
    Sampson, Madison, Abraham,, William Riley, Serene and Nellie, my grandmother.
    Sampson married and took his family to Alabama. Madison married Nellie Cantrell and went to Mississippi and had six children. They were: Jane, Nancy, Robert, John, Elizabeth, and Melissa Cantrell.
    Abraham married Jennie Robbs, no doubt about that! Their children were:
    Collins, John, Jefferson (who married ms. West), William (who married Sallie Mullican), eight children, Sallie married Mr. Wilkerson. I knew their son Cleve Wilkerson and went to school with his children. Susan married Tom Cantrell. Lissie (Melissa) married Richard Cantrell. Tom and Richard were brothers, and were sons of Peter and Polly Cantrell. They were also brothers-in-law to Alex Davis, (my mother's brother). Alex Davis and his father-in-law went with their families to Dade County, Mo., when they were young. Alex Davis made two visits back to Smithville, and died in Missouri at 100 years old.

    A daughter of John and Mary Adkins Cantrell was Nellie Cantrell, my grandmother. She married John (Jackie) Lewis Davis. I never heard my grandmother called by the name you mentioned. Everyone called her Nellie. My grandparents were both born in Spartanburg, SC and Rebecca, my mother, and her sister Amanda, were both born in Tennessee. My grandparents both lived to be 87 years old, and both died in an accident. They raised 12 children to be up in years, and never had a doctor in the house. (Strong and Healthy). I have a nephew, James Carlyn Moore who is one of the men at Pepperdine College, Los Angeles. You may meet him sometime. If you should, tell him that you and he are kin. I appreciate all that you sent me. I hope that you will write again and tell me about your family. Anything you will write will be of interest to me. Give my respects to your grandfather. Sincerely, Your cousin,
    Mrs. J. W. Lee (Nancy Strother Smith)
    Author of the letter: The letter was sent to my uncle Jerry Cantrell in the early 1960s........My aunt's name is Goskini......she doesn't post anything.....But she has thousands of pieces of papers, wills. Letters etc............I found IDA married twice.....and another kid, but can't read the name...
    from Sandy Wainwright to Mildred I. (Seburn) Clark Oct, 2002. Sandy said her uncle Jerry had planned to do a book in the 1960's but died before he could. His papers then were divided among the family and Warren G. Cantrell received part of them.
    ----
    Rebecca Davis Smith died in 1931. Nancy Strother Davis Lee was her daughter. John "Johnny Flathead" Cantrell was the father of Ellenor "Nellie" Cantrell who married John Lewis "Jackie" Davis. . Tom, Richard and Druzilla E. Cantrell were the children of Peter Cantrell and Mary Elizabeth "Polly" Davis, sister of John Lewis "Jackie" Davis. I have a paper copy of a photo of Rebecca Davis and her children from John Gray Davis-Mildred I. Seburn Clark.

    The children of the 2nd marriage were born in South Carolina. He had two sons by 1st marriage and two sons and three daughters by 2nd marriage.

    Notes:

    According to family tradition, the Durhams were descended from the Durhams who were the Lairds of Grange in Forfarshire, Scotland. The original charter was granted in 1322 by Robert Bruce, King of Scotland, to Sir William Durham, who became the first Laird of Grange.

    Robert Lee Durham said that his great-great-grandfather, Achilles Durham, was born in Virginia. Kate Durham, Achilles' great-granddaughter, said that he was born in England and came to Virginia as an infant with his parents.

    In 1995, Marla Goodrich said she heard Achilles was in Lunenburg County, Virginia, prior to coming to North Carolina.

    Achilles Durham moved from Virginia with his mother, Elizabeth Cates Durham, to the Haw River settlement of Orange County, North Carolina. There he married a widow, Mrs. Mary Cates Hardin, in 1770. In 1783, they moved to what is now Cleveland County, North Carolina, almost exactly on the line between Lincoln and Rutherford Counties.

    Achilles' mother died in Rutherford County and was buried near where the present town of Shelby was later located. After the death of his first wife who was the mother of all his children, Achilles married Edith Hicks on March 21, 1806. They moved to South Carolina and settled in what is now Spartanburg County. Achilles died there and was buried at Buck Creek Baptist Church, which is a few miles north of Spartanburg.

    I have numbered the generations and put a little information about these 11 generations of Durhams.I have siblings for some of these Durhams and more extensive notes, especially about problems resulting from information from different people.I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this information, as I got it from at least four different sources.If you want the complete file, email me at mdr36@gnt.net.Can you give me birth, marriage, and death dates forAchilles and his siblings?Iím hoping to connect Achilles to my DURHAMs.Thanks.

    Greg,

    Welcome to the list! The Achilles Durham (1825-1901) you mentioned who was married to Amelia Beam (1823-1900) was the son of Lemuel Newton Durham (1798-1881) and Temperance Scruggs (1802-1887). Lemuel was a son of Charles Alexander Durham (1773-1850) and Patience Davis (1772-1862). Charles was a son of Achilles Durham (ca. 1740 - ca. 1814)

    I believe Elizabeth Durham (1779-1846), wife of Berryman Hicks (1778-1839)and mother of Artimency Hicks Lovelace (1813-1854), was the daughter of Achilles Durham (ca. 1740 - ca. 1814) and Mary Cates. I have the children of Achilles Durham and Mary Cates as follows:

    Charles Alexander Durham (1773-1850)
    Sarah Durham
    Mary "Polly" Durham
    Richard Durham (1777-1844)
    Elizabeth Durham (born 1-31-1779 Orange Co., NC, died 4-24-1846 Spartanburg Co., SC)

    Achilles Durham, supposedly as a youth, moved from Virginia with his mother,Elizabeth Cates, to the Haw River settlement of Orange County, North Carolina. There he married a widow, Mrs. Mary Cates Hardin, in 1770. He was listed in the 1779 Orange County tax roll.

    In 1783, Achilles moved to what is now Cleveland County, North Carolina,almost exactly on the line between Lincoln and Rutherford Counties, bringing his mother, wife, and children.

    Achilles Durham purchased 200 acres of land from Jonathan Davis on December 21, 1791 for 50 pds., and he sold the land to John Lindsey on October 8, 1792, for 60 pds. (Chatham County, NC, deed records).

    There are two Durhams listed as heads of households in the 1790 census of would have included his mother. William Durham was listed in the 14th Company, Morgan District, with himself and one son over 16, and two women in the family.

    Achilles' mother died in Rutherford County and was buried near where the present town of Shelby was later located. After the death of his first wife who was the mother of all his children, Achilles married Edith Hicks on March 21, 1806.

    In "Rutherford County, North Carolina Abstracts of Wills, 1779-1822," p. 52,abstracted and compiled by Carolina Heath Davis, an Edith Durham received 10 shillings as the daughter of Richard Hicks. Two grandchildren with the surname Hicks also inherited.

    On January 23, 1801, Achilles Durham purchased 100 acres of land on both David Forrester for $100. Witnesses were Beryman Hicks and David Cantrell. The witness oath was dated March 4, 1802, and signed by Beryman Hicks. The 330-332).

    On December 9, 1809, Achiles Durham of Rutherford County, North Carolina, sold 100 acres of land on the waters of Buck Creek to Daniel Cantrell of Spartanburg District, South Carolina, for $140. Witnesses were John Martin, John Blackwell, and Dicy Hicks. The witness oath was dated August 18, 1812, and signed by John Blackwell. The deed was recorded on April 6, 1813 (Spartanburg County, SC, Deed Book N, 282-283).

    In the 1810 census of Rutherford County, an "Acles" Durham was listed as head were also three children listed, the youngest under 10.

    Achilles was buried at Buck Creek Baptist Church, which is a few miles north established by 1815, at which time he was not listed as a member. This would put Achilles' death sometime around 1813-1815.

    Robert Lee Durham, a great-great-grandson of Achilles Durham, wrote an Thursday, April 30, 1936. He wrote, "I visited the Buck Creek Baptist Church and cemetery a few years ago; and found there are many unmarked graves in it; of this first Achilles Durham."

    http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~donnykrun/Richard_Durham_Research.htm

    Here are the two original family accounts. This is the first Durham story.

    Another old original document was written by Robert L. Durham who was a decendent to Achilles Durham. This clipping appeared in the Forrest City, North Carolina Courier Thursday, April 30, 1936. "The first Achilles Durham, who moved into Rutherford County about the year 1783, came from Virginia, bringing with him his mother, whose maiden name was Elizabeth Cates."

    After years of searching for the illusive Elizabeth Cates let me share my findings. Throughout the world in the early 1700s there were only four places to find an Elizabeth Cates. In Norfolk, England, New Hampshire, Virginia with the Robert Cates family, and in Beaufort, North Carolina. If you believe the story that Elizabeth Cates was the mother of Achilles and Matthew Durham then you are looking for a person born between 1700-1715. Keep in mind also, that for practical purposes, Elizabeth Cates would have had been able to have children for a twenty year period. You then have to ask the question where were the other children? There were several women with name Elizabeth Cates, all born in that range between 1700-1715. The only problem, they all married someone other than a Durham and appear to have lived somewhere other than where we find Achilles and Matthew lived. A similar analysis was done with the names Margaret, Betty, and Rachel Cates. None of these names matched the Durham family story but were used with a high degree of frequency during this time. With all the information that has been gathered on the Robert Cates, Sr. family, there seems to be no child by that name either. Later generations give us several Elizabeth Cates, but none that could be the mother of Achilles or Matthew Durham.

    "They came from the Haw River Settlement in Orange County, North Carolina where Achilles married Mrs. Mary Hardin, and their son, Charles Alexander Durham and presumably their oldest son, Richard Durham was born. To them was born a daughter, Elizabeth whether in Orange County or after they moved to what is now Cleveland County, but were at that time almost exactly near the line between Lincoln and Rutherford Counties. In this Lincoln--Rutherford home Elizabeth Cates Durham, mother of Achilles died and was buried in about a mile and one half of where Shelby was afterwards located."

    Keep in mind that Elizabeth Cates died around 1783. This is important because it fits with our timeline for her birth and child bearing years. "After the death of his first wife (Mrs. Mary Hardin) who was the mother of his children, Achilles Durham married another widow, Mrs. Edith Hicks, on 21 March, 1808; after which they moved to South Carolina and settled in what is now Spartanburg County. Then Achilles died and was buried at Buck Creek Baptist Church which is eight miles north of Spartanburg."

    A note on Achilles and the Buck Creek Baptist Church. Achilles died in about 1813 and there are land transactions showing that he donated land to the Church. Actual Church records and the formation of the Church took place in 1715. This has been confirmed by my visiting Buck Creek Baptist Church on several occasions.

    Let's look at what can be gleaned from this story. A women named Elizabeth Cates existed. There are no birth records, and no account of who Matthew and Achilles' father was in this account. So what can we deduce? Elizabeth was not really the mother of Achilles and Matthew, or she was some other relationship to them. Keep that idea in the back of your mind.

    Here is the second Durham story. The earliest known reference to the Durhams of Scotland can be found in a manuscript entitled, History of Nathaniel Evans of Cat Fish Creek and his Decedents, by James Daniel Evans in 1905. It appears that Cicero A. or C.A. Durham provided the original information. (He would be almost five generations separated from the first Achilles Durham.) Durham Excursus.*

    Major Solon A. Durham was the oldest son of Charles Crawford and Eunice Jane (Evans) Durham of Shelby, N.C. Charles Crawford Durham was born 20th February, 1820, and died 1st August, 1897. He saw service through the Civil War for the South. He was the son of Charles Alexander Durham, born 5th June, 1773; died 13th March, 1853; married 31st January, 1793. Patience, daughter of Capt. Benjamin Davis, who was born 24th December, 1731; married Rebecca ___________, born 25th October, 1741. Capt. Davis was prominent in the forces of the Revolution. The father of Charles A. Durham was Achilles Durham, Esquire, of Haw River, North Carolina, and was born about 1720. He was brought as an infant by his father, William, from England. He married Mrs. Catharine Hardin. His father, William, was lineally descended from William, 9th Laird of Grange. ( Since I Was Born, written by a descendent of Achilles Durham, Robert L. Durham very clearly states that his ancestor came from Forfar, Dundee Scotland).

    This story is more appealing to me than the first. It has more truth, and yet makes less sense. I'll explain this as we go along. Many researchers have pointed to a Thomas Durham as a potential father to the boys. And then there is the Thomas Durham who married Margaret Peggy Lindsey. Let me stop and review what we have on him. Thomas is thought to be born in Durham, England in 1695-96. The problem I have on him is that we have birth records dating back to the 1200s in England, and yet there is no specific date for his birth. This is the same problem I have with the 1720 date associated with the second story of Achilles Durham's birth. And if by some chance Thomas and Achilles, and Matthew were Scottish, then we should see them also with a real month, day, year date in the very good Scottish Records. Another point that makes Durham research difficult in Scotland are the many variations of the spelling Durham: Durham, Dirram, Dorham, Dunholme, Durame, Dureame, Dureham, Duren, Dirom, Dyrham, Durhame, and Durrame. I have encountered each during my research with the Scottish Records Office.

    One conclusion is that the Durhams came from Ireland where records were lost. Another conclusion is that these individuals were born in wilderness areas of America where just no records existed. In Thomas case, I believe he was born in England around 1700-1705. With Achilles being born in 1720 and we know he died in 1813, well you do the math, 93 years. Possible, not likely. From 1740 to 1770 what was Achilles doing, and where were all the children he might have had during this time? In the years 1720-1722 there are no know records of William Durham on a ship manifest.

    Ö It is my firm belief that Matthew and Achilles were also orphaned. They were raised by the Cates family in Virginia and later North Carolina. This is evidenced by the name "Richard" Durham taken from the Robert Cates', Sr. family. Later, we see that Achilles marries a Cates.

    Elizabeth Pugh, wife of Robert Cates, Sr. helped to raise the boys. They did farm work, then learned surveying skills (Chain Carriers) as evidenced by land transactions uncovered by Dr. Banks Cates. In 1770 Achilles is still surveying and searching for iron ore on the Yadkin River. (Quaker Meeting House near) Elizabeth Pugh also outlived Robert Cates and probably died around 1783.

    And it is from this Cates-Durham relationship born out of hardship and survival that we see how they call Elizabeth Cates their mother, which is a connection that no one could prove. Look at the tons of Cates notes provided by Dr. Banks Cates which show the Cates family migration from Virginia to Orange County, North Carolina. It is clear that Durham and Cates became interconnected through their Quaker faith. And if you follow the locations where you find the Durham and Cates families you will see the southern migration patterns of the Quakers. Researchers will note that the Cheek family who intermarry with the Durhams were also Quakers that migrated to Orange County, North Carolina. And the very first time we see Achilles Durham as an adult, he is surveying near the Yadkin River, home to many of the Quakers who migrated from Pennsylvania.

    His name is spelled Akillis in some NC records (North Carolina Marriages 1717-1868, Hunting for Bears).

    Following information from notes compiled through the CantrellCousin Project.......... First, NOTES from Warren G. Cantrell ..........

    "One of Isaac's descendants stated in 1928 that Isaac married first, Talitha Cloud, and that she was a granddaughter of William Cloud, of County of Wilts, England, who bought 500 acres of land from William Penn, came over in 1682, landed at Philadelphia, and after tarrying awhile in or near that city went far into the woods, settling at length, in what is now the town of Concord, in Delaware County, PA. His house was just across the state line from New Castle Co. As the eldest child of Isaac was born in 1751, we can assume that the marriage was about 1750 and it would indicate that if Talitha was a Cloud, then her parents had also lived in the big valley of VA.
    We know that Isaac became an ordained Minister of the Baptist Church. There is no doubt that the last 60 years of Isaac and John Cantrell's lives, they devoted much of their energy to God's work and they became part of God's design for America. Hundreds of descendants have followed in their footsteps."

    Isaac is first located in the county records of Old Orange Co., NC 14 Dec. 1756, when he purchased 200 acres of land from the Earl of Granville and the deed was witnessed by Wm. Churton. In the Caswell Co. land grants, we find where Isaac was granted 202 acres of land on a ridge between the waters of County Line Creek and Jordon Creek. He sold this same land to his brother, John, 13 March 1759, and the sale was witnessed by James Watson. On the 10th of Nov. 1761, he purchased 280 acres of land from Robert Cate, Sr. and the deed was witnessed by Robert Cate, Jr. A purchase of 115 acres on the Northeast side of Haw River below Collins Creek is recorded 30 July 1760 in Caswell Co. land records and 13 Aug. 1765 in Orange Co., as a purchase from the Earl of Granville.

    On the 26th of April 1768, he sold 300 acres to Henry Pickett Jr. and the deed was witnessed by Thomas Cate. In the Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of Orange Co. in the Province of No. Carolina, Court of Aug. 1764 at Childsburg which was then the name of the county seat, changed to Hillsboro in 1766, Isaac was appointed to a Grand Jury that was called and sworn. In the same Court, Isaac and other neighbors were appointed to a Road Jury to lay out a road to Tinnigs Mill, thense to Crow's Ford, thense to Cape Fare Road and to make a report to next Court.

    A church, Wolf Island Primitive Baptist Church, was formed by Isaac Cantrell and he was pastor of the Church for over twenty years. The Rockingham County Court Minutes indicate that the Church was locally known as "Cantrell's Meeting House" as early as 1785 and as late as 1807. It is noted that the first known pastors of Wolf Island Church owned and lived on the same farm. The land was first owned by Isaac Cantrell who sold the property to Clement Whittemore in 1798. In 1803 Whittemore sold the land to Thomas Moore, who deeded part of the farm to his son-in-law Robert Shreve in 1831. Robert Shreve was a step-son of Robert Cantrell, grandson of Isaac Cantrell. There are many purchases, sales and witnesses of deeds by Isaac Cantrell until he migrated to the old 96th District of SC.

    Isaac Cantrell Estate Papers--File 736, Spartanburg County, S.C. & Court of Common Pleas, Judgement Roll #302

    According to Annette Pirkle Starr, Isaac Cantrell died in Spartanburg SC and left a will dated Aug.23, 1805. She also stated that he had (at least rwp) two wives, Talitha CLOUD and Mary LINDER. Mary is shown as the widow in the following documents. John Pirtle, George Purtle, Sarah Pirtle, and Isaac Pirtle- "grandson of the said Isaac Cantrell" attended the proceedings. It's likely that John Pirtle is John Pirkle of Rockingham Co. NC, George - John's son. Sarah Pirtle is probably John's daughter-in-law, Sarah Cantrell Pirkle, wife of William Sr., in attendance with her son, Isaac K. Isaac Cantrell was born about 1733 according to Lawrence Bankston's testimony ,"He was about 72 years old."

    Isaac Cantrell Estate Papers--File 736, Spartanburg County, S.C. 17th February of 1806.

    Court of Ordinary met at Spartanburg Court House to try the protest of Peter Cantrell of Isaac Cantrell will as requested--the same to be proven in due form of Law.

    1. James Ezell and John Pirtle desposed that they signed the will of Isaac Cantrell at the testators request in his presence. They did not see him sign the Will nor did they sign at the same time.


    2. Lawrence Bankston He knoweth the testator about 50 years, The decíd had a ver bad pain in his head & he the decíd told him he thought it made him dull. He was about 72 years old. He done little by business but trusted to his wife or generally asked his wife, when a person came to settle, if it was not so and so.


    3. Isaac Young deposeth he was not in his riight senses in regard to the Church, He never agreed to anything to as to stand to it.



    4. Esq._____Turner

    He knew him for 10 years and did not think he was in proper senses. He only knew him in the Church and thought him childish in that respect and that it was common talk in the neighborhood that he was
    in his dotage, that he lay on a sick bed 2 years ond one month before he died.

    5. Capt. J. Turner

    deposeth he very often saw him and thought he was possessed of as strong a mind as the nature of his infirmanent and age would admit. The decíd asked him to be Executor and he refused because
    the children were not all equal.

    6. John Pirtle,

    cross examined deposeth that about 14 years ago he thought was out of his senses but at the time he signed the will he was in his proper senses.

    7. James Ezell,

    cross examined says he was in his proper mind when he signed as a witness

    8. Rev. John Bankston

    He had known the decíd from a boy. He Drew the Will contested. He signed his name as a witness and was named an Executor.. He requested the deceased to take his name out as an Executor. That he did believe that he was of disposing mind and memory, at least it was so to the last he knew and he thinks this to be same.

    9. William Garrot

    Deposeth he the decíd was of a right mind and could do his business. That he was an industrious man, never kept an overseer and he thinks he directed his farm and he thinks he was in his proper mind. Some years ago he did not seem submissive to the church and he thought he might not be right.

    (Conclusion of protest Inquiry)

    Decided:

    That the Will as far as respects the personal property is valid and sufficiently proved. But it is not sufficient to convey the landed property.

    Religion:
    Primitive Baptists, are also known as Hard Shell Baptists, Anti-Mission Baptists, or Old School Baptists. The adjective, "Primitive", in the name has the sense of "original".

    While living in New Castle County, Joseph's son, Isaac Cantrell, became associated with the Welsh Tract Baptist Church located at the foot of Iron Hill, in Pencader Hundred. It is the oldest Primitive Baptist church in America, and Isaac was probably licensed to preach by this group. As the Church was composed of Welsh People, the preaching for about one hundred years was in the Welsh language. Isaacís mother, Catharina, was more than likely of Swedish parentage, but we know for certain that his grandmother, Dorothy Jones, was born in Wales. The Welsh language is not just a dialect of English; it is a language with an older pedigree, and a distinct one. Isaac Cantrell would have to have been fluent in the Welsh language to have been a member of this church in the 1700s.

    Following information from notes compiled through the CantrellCousin Project.......... First, NOTES from Warren G. Cantrell ..........

    "One of Isaac's descendants stated in 1928 that Isaac married first, Talitha Cloud, and that she was a granddaughter of William Cloud, of County of Wilts, England, who bought 500 acres of land from William Penn, came over in 1682, landed at Philadelphia, and after tarrying awhile in or near that city went far into the woods, settling at length, in what is now the town of Concord, in Delaware County, PA. His house was just across the state line from New Castle Co. As the eldest child of Isaac was born in 1751, we can assume that the marriage was about 1750 and it would indicate that if Talitha was a Cloud, then her parents had also lived in the big valley of VA.
    We know that Isaac became an ordained Minister of the Baptist Church. There is no doubt that the last 60 years of Isaac and John Cantrell's lives, they devoted much of their energy to God's work and they became part of God's design for America. Hundreds of descendants have followed in their footsteps."

    Isaac is first located in the county records of Old Orange Co., NC 14 Dec. 1756, when he purchased 200 acres of land from the Earl of Granville and the deed was witnessed by Wm. Churton. In the Caswell Co. land grants, we find where Isaac was granted 202 acres of land on a ridge between the waters of County Line Creek and Jordon Creek. He sold this same land to his brother, John, 13 March 1759, and the sale was witnessed by James Watson. On the 10th of Nov. 1761, he purchased 280 acres of land from Robert Cate, Sr. and the deed was witnessed by Robert Cate, Jr. A purchase of 115 acres on the Northeast side of Haw River below Collins Creek is recorded 30 July 1760 in Caswell Co. land records and 13 Aug. 1765 in Orange Co., as a purchase from the Earl of Granville.

    On the 26th of April 1768, he sold 300 acres to Henry Pickett Jr. and the deed was witnessed by Thomas Cate. In the Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of Orange Co. in the Province of No. Carolina, Court of Aug. 1764 at Childsburg which was then the name of the county seat, changed to Hillsboro in 1766, Isaac was appointed to a Grand Jury that was called and sworn. In the same Court, Isaac and other neighbors were appointed to a Road Jury to lay out a road to Tinnigs Mill, thense to Crow's Ford, thense to Cape Fare Road and to make a report to next Court.

    A church, Wolf Island Primitive Baptist Church, was formed by Isaac Cantrell and he was pastor of the Church for over twenty years. The Rockingham County Court Minutes indicate that the Church was locally known as "Cantrell's Meeting House" as early as 1785 and as late as 1807. It is noted that the first known pastors of Wolf Island Church owned and lived on the same farm. The land was first owned by Isaac Cantrell who sold the property to Clement Whittemore in 1798. In 1803 Whittemore sold the land to Thomas Moore, who deeded part of the farm to his son-in-law Robert Shreve in 1831. Robert Shreve was a step-son of Robert Cantrell, grandson of Isaac Cantrell. There are many purchases, sales and witnesses of deeds by Isaac Cantrell until he migrated to the old 96th District of SC.

    Isaac Cantrell Estate Papers--File 736, Spartanburg County, S.C. & Court of Common Pleas, Judgement Roll #302

    According to Annette Pirkle Starr, Isaac Cantrell died in Spartanburg SC and left a will dated Aug.23, 1805. She also stated that he had (at least rwp) two wives, Talitha CLOUD and Mary LINDER. Mary is shown as the widow in the following documents. John Pirtle, George Purtle, Sarah Pirtle, and Isaac Pirtle- "grandson of the said Isaac Cantrell" attended the proceedings. It's likely that John Pirtle is John Pirkle of Rockingham Co. NC, George - John's son. Sarah Pirtle is probably John's daughter-in-law, Sarah Cantrell Pirkle, wife of William Sr., in attendance with her son, Isaac K. Isaac Cantrell was born about 1733 according to Lawrence Bankston's testimony ,"He was about 72 years old."

    Isaac Cantrell Estate Papers--File 736, Spartanburg County, S.C. 17th February of 1806.

    Court of Ordinary met at Spartanburg Court House to try the protest of Peter Cantrell of Isaac Cantrell will as requested--the same to be proven in due form of Law.

    1. James Ezell and John Pirtle desposed that they signed the will of Isaac Cantrell at the testators request in his presence. They did not see him sign the Will nor did they sign at the same time.


    2. Lawrence Bankston He knoweth the testator about 50 years, The decíd had a ver bad pain in his head & he the decíd told him he thought it made him dull. He was about 72 years old. He done little by business but trusted to his wife or generally asked his wife, when a person came to settle, if it was not so and so.


    3. Isaac Young deposeth he was not in his riight senses in regard to the Church, He never agreed to anything to as to stand to it.



    4. Esq._____Turner

    He knew him for 10 years and did not think he was in proper senses. He only knew him in the Church and thought him childish in that respect and that it was common talk in the neighborhood that he was
    in his dotage, that he lay on a sick bed 2 years ond one month before he died.

    5. Capt. J. Turner

    deposeth he very often saw him and thought he was possessed of as strong a mind as the nature of his infirmanent and age would admit. The decíd asked him to be Executor and he refused because
    the children were not all equal.

    6. John Pirtle,

    cross examined deposeth that about 14 years ago he thought was out of his senses but at the time he signed the will he was in his proper senses.

    7. James Ezell,

    cross examined says he was in his proper mind when he signed as a witness

    8. Rev. John Bankston

    He had known the decíd from a boy. He Drew the Will contested. He signed his name as a witness and was named an Executor.. He requested the deceased to take his name out as an Executor. That he did believe that he was of disposing mind and memory, at least it was so to the last he knew and he thinks this to be same.

    9. William Garrot

    Deposeth he the decíd was of a right mind and could do his business. That he was an industrious man, never kept an overseer and he thinks he directed his farm and he thinks he was in his proper mind. Some years ago he did not seem submissive to the church and he thought he might not be right.

    (Conclusion of protest Inquiry)

    Decided:

    That the Will as far as respects the personal property is valid and sufficiently proved. But it is not sufficient to convey the landed property.

    "John Cantrell, Sr., was a miller and Baptist Minester. He helped establish the Buck Creek Baptist Chruch in Buck Creek, Sportanburg Co., South Carolina. He served as Pastor from 1800 to 1803. John is burried in Cantrell Family Cemetery. John had a brother by the name of Isaac Cantrell who was also a Baptist preacher at Buck Creek Baptist Church.

    JOHN3 CANTRELL (JOSEPH2 CANTRILL, RICHARD1) was born October 1724 in New Castle, DE, and died 1803 in Spartanburg Co, SC. He married (1) ?? BRITTAIN. He married (2) JANE.

    John was in Rockingham Co NC before the Revolution. He later moved to Spartanburg Co SC, where he owned over 800 acres on Buck Creek in the 96th District. One of the first members of the Buck Creek Baptist Church, son Isaac was a messenger there. Sons Abraham, Stephen and Moses administered his estate. His first 17 sons were by his first wife, four sons and two daughters by his second. There were supposedly a number of twins in the family, and for the sake of his first wife, let us fervently hope so.

    According to the Cantrell family file folder in the Georgia Archives, "Aaron, Simon and Peter were captured during the Revolution and were condemned to be shot. Tradition says Peter was shot, and Aaron & Peter [sic] escaped." The three were also supposedly scouts in Gen. Marion's army.

    Incidentally, I'm told there is no name John Miller Cantrell. Rather, "Old" John Cantrell who m. Miss Brittain had a son who was known as "Miller" John Cantrell because he owned a mill in SC. That's the John who m. Elizabeth Cantrell. Since my husband apparently doesn't have that line, I'm not getting excited about it but it is a point of interest and clarification if true.

    The Cantrell name orginated in France, and was spelled CHANTELLE. The first Cantrell to be recorded in England was during the rain of King John 1199, AD. He was William Cantrell. The first Cantrell to be married in America was also a William Cantrell, the nineth in line fron the first William Cantrell. William Cantrell arrived on the Ship Phenix, at Jamestown, Vergnine 1608. This William Cantrell is known as the Progenitor of most of the Cantrell's in America.

    From the area of Philadelphia, Pa., the Cantrell's Migroated as "Mishionaries of the Mother Baptist Church" south to North and South Carolines. John Centrell Sr. after service in the Rev. War from N. C. settled in a place called Bucks Creek.

    The Bucks Creek Baptist Church is still standing. The Cantrell family Cemetery is a stort destance away. John Cantrell Sr. is beruied in this cemetery.

    John CANTRELL Sr. was a miller and Baptist Minester. He helped establish the Bucks Creek Baptist Church in Buck Creek, [Sportanburg Co.] S. C. Served as Pastor from 1800 to 1803. John is burried in Cantrell Family Cemetery. John had a brother by the name of Isaac Cantrell. Isaac also was pastor of the Bucks Creek Baptist Church. The Cantrell Cemetery is near the Bucks Creek Baptist Church.



    Notes from Carl D. Cantrell:

    He was married twice. He had seventeen sons by his first wife _______ Brittian and four sons and two daughters by his second wife Jane ______. We have heard from several that there were a number of twins in this large family. He died in 1803 and his sons Abraham, Stephen and Moses administered upon his estate.

    There are may traditions in the family regarding John Cantrell and his family and their moving to the Carolinas, but the exact date of his leaving New Castle county is not known. It is known, however, that he was living in Rockingham county, or what is now that county, North Carolina, before the Revolutionary War, and shortly after the war he moved to Ninety Six District, now Spartanburg county, SC, where he owned over eight hundred acres of land on Buck creek, waters of the Pacolet river. John Cantrell and his family were devoted and active members in the Buck creek Baptist church and some of his descendants still attend this old church. There is not reliable authority for a correct tabulation for any but the first three of the children of John Cantrell and we have endeavored to make the list correct from records, rather than from lists furnished from memory by his descendants. His father moved to the big valley of Virginia before John reached his teens. In 1738, his father was living in Orange county, Virginia. He spent all of his life as a farmer. We don't know what education he had but he probably received what ever was available to frontier lads. The family genealogist stated that he married two times and, from the ages of the children, this is probably true. She stated that his 1st wife was a Miss Brittain. She was probably a sister of Joseph Brittain, who lived near John in North Carolina and who is mentioned in the records of his brother, Joseph, in 1759, in Rowan county. The marriage was probably somewhere in the valley of Virginia. In the 18th century, families from Pennsylvania filtered down through the Great Valley of Virginia to the Piedmont Plateau of the Carolinas.

    The family had become associated with the Baptist Church and Isaac, John's brother, was ordained a minister. The family settled in the "Land of Eden," Granville county, North Carolina, which became Orange county in September, 1752. John is first located on a tax list submitted by the Sheriff in 1754. The list was for two white polls. His brother Isaac received a land grant for 202 acres of land in Orange county, November 13, 1756. He sold this land to John on March 13, 1759. The deed was witnessed by James Watson. The land was on a ridge between the waters of County Line Creek and Jordons Creek. The land was about seven miles north of the Upper Branch of the Haw River, on the waters of Wolf Island Creek which was a branch of the Dan River to the north. It is about two miles north of the present town of Reidsville, Rockingham county, North Carolina. After the tax list of 1754, the next time we find John is in the Minutes of the Orange County Records, when he is sued by James Cary Jr. on a debt in the December court of 1758. In the Court of September, 1759, he and his brother Joseph were on a road jury to lay out a road from Hogna's Creek to the county courthouse. He and William Savage were appointed Overseers of the road. In August, 1760, they were appointed to another road jury to lay out a road from Daniel McGullon's plantation to Taylors road leading to the court house. He was appointed overseer to the lower section. In August, 1763, Henry Cobb was appointed to replace John on the Lower town road, and in May, 1765, John Morrow was appointed Overseer in place of John on the other road. In May, 1766, John was appointed Overseer of a road in place of William Laughlin. On November 12, 1765, John sold his 202 acres of land to William Jones. No record of his having purchased other land are found in Orange county records. Guilford county, North Carolina, was formed in 1771 from the western part of Orange county. John and his family lived in the northern part of this new county, and this area became Rockingham county in 1785. But, by this time John and his family and many others in the area had moved south westward down the Piedmont Plateau to the 96th District of South Carolina. When this move was made has not been firmly established but it appears to have been shortly after the close of the Revolutionary War. His 1st wife died and he married Jane________.

    The 1st wife is probably buried at the Wolf Island Baptist Church Cemetery. The church was formed in 1777 by his brother, Isaac, on a part of his 770 acre farm. Isaac's 1st wife died in the area and she was probably buried on the ridge where the church was built. John's wife is probably buried at the same burial place. In the 1960s, the field markers were removed to facilitate mowing. It was estimated that there were probably one hundred unmarked graves in the cemetery. The family genealogist stated that he had seventeen sons by the 1st wife and four sons and two daughters by the 2nd wife. She admitted there was no reliable authority for a correct tabulation for the listed children of John except for the first three. She had heard the tradition of the Cantrell with twenty-one sons and though there was available evidence that Isaac was more likely to have had the twenty-one sons, she attributed them to John and preceded to compile a list of twenty-one. We now know that two of the listed sons were not Cantrells but Curtis. This was due to a misreading of the 1790 census. We know that at least three of the children listed were nephews, sons of brother Isaac. Two sons listed were never located on census reports or other records, but this does not mean that they did not exist, so we end up with a list of sixteen sons. Because two daughters of John were born during the years of the 1st marriage, we can assume there were at least four daughters.

    Soon after John arrived in the 96th District, later Spartanburg county, South Carolina, he acquired 800 acres of land on Buck Creek, waters of the Pacolet River. Later his brother Isaac and many of his sons and nephews also acquired land in the area.

    In 1790, John is listed as head of household in the census of the 96th District. He had one son under sixteen and two daughters at home. Many family names on this census were familiar names first located in the court records of Orange county, North Carolina. We have assumed that John and his brothers were the first to use the spelling of the family name as Cantrell, but now we find his father, Joseph used this spelling in 1758 in Virginia. The history of the South Carolina Baptist Church gives statistics for the Buck Creek Baptist Church for the period 1790-1800. This church claims to have been a constituted body since 1779. Situated near Pacolet River about twelve miles northeast of Spartanburg, it became a constituent of the Bethel Association in 1789. In 1790, the church had 78 members. When John's brother, Isaac moved south in 1795, he became the minister there from 1796 though 1798. John was a messenger to the Bethel Association from 1797 though 1799. In 1800, John is listed as the minister.

    The church building has been rebuilt several times in the past 200 years. At the present time, there is a new, large, red brick church building across the road from the old church location and the cemetery. It is located on a hill, about a quarter of a mile north of the mouth of Buck Creek, about 2 miles west of Mayo. Descendants of the family are still members of the church. John was not listed as the head of household in the 1800 census of South Carolina, but his was listed in the household of his son, Moses, age 36. The household listed a male and female over 45 years of age. We know that John owned three slaves and the listing for Moses had 3 slaves listed. John died February, 1803, and three sons, Abraham, Stephen, and Moses were appointed administrators of the estate. The probate was recorded in Deed book "L" page 193. His widow, Jane, received a dower settlement. In the last several years, a number of researchers have tried to locate this deed book without success. John is probably buried at the Buck Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. The center of the cemetery has at least one hundred graves marked by fieldstones with only graves since the 1850s containing information on the stones. Jane is not listed as head of household on the 1810 census. She was probably living in the household of a married daughter.

    Surname: Durham

    This name, with variant spelling Durram, is of English locational origin from the city thus called in the North East of England. Recorded variously as Dunholm circa 1000, as Dunhelme in "Historia Anglorum", dated 1122, and as Donelme in the 1191, Fine Court Rolls of that city. The name derives from the Old English "dun", a hill, plus the Old Scandinavian "holm(r)", (Northern Medieval "holm"), an island or piece of raised land partly surrounded by streams. The surname first appears on record in the mid 12th Century, (see below). One, William de Durham, witness, appears in the 1236, "Fine Court Rolls of Essex", and a Robertus de Durham was one of twelve Scots knights appointed to settle the laws of the marches in 1249, "Scottish Acts of Parliament". Walter Durham of Dumfriesshire rendered homage to Edward 1 in 1296, and Lawrence Durham was recorded in the 1400, London Assize Court Rolls. Sir Philip Charles Henderson Calerwood Durham (1763-1845), wounded at Trafalgar, 1805, became G.C.B. and admiral, 1830. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Osbert de Dunelm, which was dated 1163, in the "The Pipe Rolls of London", during the reign of King Henry 11, known as "The Builder of Churches", 1154 - 1189. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

    Read and absorb this opinion regarding Achilles' father... http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~donnykrun/Richard_Durham_Research.htm

    *

    The father of Charles A. Durham was Achilles Durham, Esquire, of Haw River, North Carolina, and was born about 1720. He was brought as an infant by his father, William, from England.

    He (Achilles) married Mrs. Catharine Hardin.

    His father, William, was lineally descended from William, 9th Laird of Grange. ( "Since I Was Born", written by a descendent of Achilles Durham, Robert L. Durham very clearly states that his ancestor came from Forfar, Dundee Scotland).
