  • Notes 
    • Appears living with Leroy Jackson in 1900 DeKalb Census.
    • ------

      The Connie Magness Cantrell family was the largest of the twelve families and
      not the least in interest. She had seventeen children, and two of her
      daughters had the same number, so it can be seen how the six-hundred living
      descendants of Perry Green Magness at the time of his death came about. She
      was a woman of great strength of body and soul, a miracle woman to the mothers
      of today. She not only reared seventeen children of her own, but she
      was the midwife for the most of the mothers of her section. Horseback on a
      sidesaddle with long flowing riding skirt, she rode the highways and byways of
      DeKalb and Warren Counties, delivering the young hopefuls and starting them
      on their careers.While the midwife has since become obsolete and discredited
      by modern medicine, she rendered a great and needed service to her day and
      generation , and is deserving of a greater tribute that I am able to pay her
      here. All praise and honor to "Aunt Connie" and her like, who knew little
      science but loved and served much."
