Brig. General James R. Cantey, CSA Alabam,a had a slave named Winter who saved his master's life and refused his freedom to stay with the family. It is my understanding he took the Cantey last name and used the Canty spelling. To this day most people with that spelling are African American. Teige Cantey was from Cork County, Ireland. I'm sure my signature will explain my geneological interest. I will gladly share any information I have on the Cantey family.
