  1. Samuel Cantley

    Have you ever found a link with the Cantley family listed to N. Ireland or Scotland.

    Thank you, Sam.

      Hi Sam – I have not yet found a documented link for this Cantley line to Scotland or Ireland or England. The earliest ancestor, John Cantley, is first noted on a 1758 militia list of Augusta County, VA. Researchers are still seeking his whereabouts before then.

      From what Cantley line do you descend? We may be cousins. šŸ™‚

    Thank you for all of your hard work. It is a joy to learn such details about the families past.
    My line goes Samuel Cantley1760,Alexander Cantley1794,George Cantley1830/Drucilla1831, James Henry Cantley, Ezra Cantley(my grandfather).
    I was wondering if a definite link had been found between Samuel Cantley1760 and John Cantley mentioned above. I have not found a document linking the two as father and son.

      Hi Chip – Thanks for visiting my blog. I try to post something new each week, so do come back. As for a definite link between Samuel and John, I will look at what I have as time permits and post a proof argument if I have the evidence. This won’t happen any time soon, though. I just got home from a week’s vacation and am absolutely buried in work. šŸ™‚ ~ Debora Wykle Kerr
