Enoch Cantrell was the son of Reverend Isaac and Mary Linder Cantrell.

After serving that church for twenty years, Reverend Cantrell moved most of the members of his large family to upper Spartanburg District, South Carolina, where his brother, John, settled around 1782. There, he and his brother, John, established a new church, Buck Creek Baptist Church, in Chesnee, SC. Their descendants still attend the church.
