Hello Sandy:
Yes, it would be fine with me to be added to your book. What info do you want? How much details do you need? Here is how I think I go in the CANTRELL family line:

My line goes: G/F is Darby Cantrell VANNOY; b. 10 Nov 1860, ,Sumner Co TN; d.15 Oct 1902, Chicago IL.

G/GM is Carolyn C.CANTRELL, b. 30 Aug 1832 d. 7 Nov. 1918, Chicago IL. m. George Briscoe VANNOY

GG/GF is Darby Henley CANTRELL, b. 25 Dec. 1801, d. 2 Mar 1883, Sumner Co, TN m. Elmira L. GILLESPIE.

GGG/GF is Stephen CANTRELL b. 28 Jul 1758; d. 5 Feb. 1827, Sumner Co. TN m. Mary S. BLAKEMORE.

Here is my dilemma. Most CANTRELL lines, I've seen, show Zebulon CANTRELL/Mary Montgomery, son of Joseph CANTRILL/Catherina [HEATH?] is the father of Stephen CANTRELL.

Do you have any evidence who the father of my Stephen CANTRELL is?

Also, do you have any info on a Fanny SHY? Her death is c. 1816-1817. She is the dau of Martha CANTRELL/Jesse SHY and Martha is the dau. of Jacob CANTRELL. [The irony is, she could have been my GG/GM and a cousin b/w/o of the CANTRELL line. She married Mason VANNOY in 1816, then he married Jane Ward in 1818--I'm a descendant of them. No one knows what happened to her but it's been suggested she died in childbirth or killed by Indians.]

Thanks for any help and let me know what you need.
Harry Van Noy
