<<Would anyone have a death record of Elijah Cantrell, son of George S.
I don't have much on the gentleman that was murdered and what a story that
must be, right? But, I have that his name was Miller "Elijah" Cantrell.
Born in Alabama on January 26, 1859 and died on December 01, 1883.
Like yourself, I caught that first name for his daughter,
If I had to guess where this Elijah Cantrell is buried............I would
bet on Spring Creek. I have that his parents were buried there,
also............George Solomon Cantrell and Catherine Jane Taylor. I
remember way back when the List was discussing the William Cantrells - in an
attempt to find out which one was connected to the George S. family. Seems
that there was another William Cantrell that was born about the same time
period as the one that was a brother to Miller Elijah Cantrell?
Linns did him in, you say?
