"Pinkney Cantrell was born in Tennessee, October 26, 1822. He married (1) Jane Rowland, by whom he had three sons and one daughter; she died and he married (2) Jane Samuels, by whom he had four daughters and one son. Names of daughters not given. Pinkney and his family moved to Missouri, where he died August 1901." (THE CANTRILL - CANTRELL GENEALOGY, 1908, by Susan Cantrill Christie, page 32.) (NOTE FROM RALPH TERRY: The birth year of 1822 was a statement from the author of the book, differing from the birth year on the tombstone.)

"Pinkney lived in Fayetteville, Arkansas prior to the Civil War. He made the mistake of saying he voted for Lincoln, he was pro-South, but anti-slavery. Some men came and burned his house down and tried to kill his family. It was winter time, Jane went to live with relatives, Pinkney walked over the mountains in the snow, all the way to to Christian County, Missouri. He took Gan with him, the other two boys I think were with Jane. She died shortly after the war started." (Louis Adamic's book.)
