Regarding your posting for Sarah Cantrell's marriage to John Foster in Lawrence County Mo in 1854.
Joseph Chastain, Min. Gospel, performed ceremony which was recorded on page 113 of Marriage Records, Lawrence County, MO.

I have Marriage Records, (1839-1845 Barry) 1845-1870 and 1871-1924 for Lawrence County. I found where John Foster married a Salinda Boucher, 4 Oct 1860, by John J Spilman, JP, pg 234 of County Records. Salinda Boucher is descended from Boucher Family that came to Barry-Lawrence County from Allen County Ky in the late 1830's. Bouchers and Spilmans are known as 2 of 12 Pioneer families that settled the area from Allen, Warren, Hopkins Counties, Ky and hold a Reunion in September since 1934 in Monet. Could your Sarah Cantrell have died in childbirth?? or the marriage ended in divorce?

Other Cantrell marriages listing Grooms are:
Canteral/Cantrell, Hiram L to Lucinda Ruckman, 14 No 1850, by B A M Chastain, JP pg 56
Cantrell, Benjamin to Sliveary Jane Roberson, 25 Oct 1860, by George Long, Min. Gospel, pg 239
Cantrell, Isaac, to Sarah A Rickman, 16 June 1864, by J R Robertson, JP, pg 285
Cantrell, Washington, to Sarah T Brackins, 24 Dec 1863, by J B Robertson, JP, pg 272.

Lawrence County was formed from Dade and Barry County May 1845. Checking an Appendix for Early Barry County Marriages is found 1 more Cantrell:
Cantrell, D. D. to Polly A Davis, 14 March 1844, Elias Oldham, JP, pg 25

Another marriage of interest which may reflect brother/sister marrying siblings:
Ruckmon, Joseph to Anney Cantell/Cantrell, 31 August 1856, by Joseph Chastain, MG pg 146.

Clayton, Newton, to Mary E Cantrell, 2 Jun 1853, by E E Cooper, MG pg 93.
Garrett, William to Louisa E Cantrell, 7 Jan 1864, by J B Robertson, JP, Pg 272.

1871 Marriages show these Cantrell Grooms:
Canteral, Elijah (Dade Co) to Amanda E Rundals, 25 Mar 1877, C/26
Cantrell, Hiram to Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Richmond, 28 Dec 1879, C/136.
Cantrell, John to Lucinda Brackens, 17 May 1870, Wm Waterson, D/7
Cantrell, Leroy to Mary M Cox, 15 August 1875, E C Davis, JP, D/87
Cantrell, Ozias, to Maretta Wilson, 25 July 1872, P F Clark, JP, D/41

This should be of some benefit to you!
