I have a half cousin that traces back to my great great great Grandfather Peter Cantrell. Her name is Derrellyn Yates. You should e-mail her at derrellyn@hotmail.com. She has posted a couple of messages to this Genforum under the surname of Mealer. You might go to those first. See her topic "Re: Peter Cantrell & Margaret? Our story about Peter Cantrell is posted there. She is a descendant from Margaret Mealer who was the second wife of Peter Cantrell. I am looking for a descendant of that marriage who knows what happened to the son Memory Jefferson Davis Cantrell. That child, born in 1863, was sent to live with an in-law named Robert Mealer, according to family lore. What has been lost is why Jefferson Davis Cantrell was sent to live with the Mealer family and what happened to Margaret Mealer Cantrell after Peter was killed near the end of the civil war.
