W.C. Cantwell was the son of James Cantwell (b; in or around 1795 South Carolina - d; possibly before the 1860 Census) and his wife the former Matilda Crane
James Cantwell probably migrated from South Carolina through Alabama and Tennessee. We know that they were in Arkansas from at least 1828 through 1841 because of the records of the children who were born there. There is a James Cantwell listed in tax records for Crawford County Arkansas in 1829, in Cnesus records of 1830 there was a James Cantwell listed in Pope County, Arkansas which is the source for children being born at certain years, but as of 1990 the names of these children were unknown. It is assumed that James Cantwell moved the family to Texas around 1845/1846? after Texas was annedx on 29 December 1845 making it the 28th State of the Union. In 1850 the family is located in Fannin County, Texas. In 1860 Matilda and 6 children are recorded at Pilot Point, Denton County, Texas. It is assumed that James died in the prior ten years withier on the way to Missouri or on the way back. As of 1990 no later records of Matilda had been found.
These are the children of James and Matilda (Crane) Cantwell.

Nola Sirena (b; 10 December 1901 -14 Sept 1978) was my grandmother. She married Jerome Kirby (J.K.) Burns (10 Feb 1898 - 30 April 1966). They had four children, the youngest of which is their only surviving child, he is also mmy father. William Montgomery Burns (29 November 1933) He married Barbara Ann (Gundlach) and they had four daughters, of which I am the oldest surviving child.
I know a lot about my family because I sat at my grandmother's feet as a child and I listened. I have a wonderful source in my grandmother's youngest sister, and when I get stuck I look to the "Cantwell and Allied Families of Ark, Az, N.M. Okla. & Tx."
