Desperately searching for a Ben or Tom CANTEY who was living in North Dakota maybe 1920....Could be earlier or later.
Need information or descendents from these lines to complete family genealogy on my end. Please respond. Thank you.
LORRAINE ANDERSON, SOUTH CAROLINA
I believe the Ben you're referring to is my great-grandfather. His daughter Myra Belle Cantey Cannon is my grandmother. Please contact me--I'm having a hard time researching him, too!
Benjamin Franklin Cantey had a brother named Tom, possibly another named Willie. Or maybe that's his father's name. (My grandmother had a photo of the 3 of them, and there was some confusion as to the names. I have that picture posted here.)
Interesting that you say Jasper's first wife was a Shuman. On Benjamin's death certificate, it says his mother's maiden name is "Sherman."
