Miles S. Cantrell and Isabell Elizabeth (Betsy) Collier
Family History: MO, TX, NM

There are several sites that list Richard Cantrill and his descendants. Though the years, Cantrell has had many spellings: Cantril, Cantrall, Cantrail, Cantrell and even Cantwell. It seems the spelling depended on the literacy of the person writing the document. Who is to say that that they are not all from the same line? Good sites to visit: Cantrell Family Genealogy Forum. Ancestry changed this, you can read, but no new posting. / A free site. but you need to register. I use this. LDS Family Search. / Cantrell Family History: This is good, but not sure how much documented.

Aunt Clara Cantrell (of Liberty Hill, TX) had this postcard with no writing or postmark on the back. We do not know the people or exact date. Probably taken about 1900, looks like Main Street of Hope, NM. Miles S. Cantrell, his son Charlie and families all moved out to Hope, Eddy Co., New Mexico about 1900-1910. Also some Cox, Maples and more from the Uvalde, TX area. Charles Cantrell and family made several trips with cattle from south Texas to New Mexico.

Charlie Cantrell moved his family to Hope, New Mexico about 1900, later Miles followed.
