      In July of 1794 he bought 200 acres of land. After a few years he sold this land to Charles Cantrell. In 1800 he bought another farm and was on the census for that year.

      He moved his young family to Smith County, Tennessee in the fall of 1801.

      About 1816 they moved to Orange County, Indiana, with most of their children and with Constance's younger brother and sister Cloud Bethel and Talitha Floyd. The 1820, 1830 and 1840 censuses show Constance and Richard Cantrell living in Franklin Co., Illinois.
