      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

      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.
