  • Notes 
    • Revolutionary Patriot, Private.

      Was born Jan. 23, 1761 twelfth of John Cantrell's 21 sons.

      About 1780 he married Elizabeth Norris, daughter of Thomas Norris, who served in the Rev. War from PA. After their marriage they first settled in Grenville District, SC, but later moved to TN. It has been said he was the first of the name to migrate to that state. He settled on Sink Creek, De Kalb CO, where he operated an iron forge, which is still called the "Old Forge,"

      War Records, at Washington, D.C., show that 'Thomas Cantrell served as a member, rank and company not stated, of Lieutenant Colonel Lytle's command, Caswell County, NC, Revolutionary War. 'His name has been found only on a list, not dated, of men 'enrolled for Captain Robert Moore, from Caswell County'.

      He was a deacon in the Baptist Church. [3]
