Goodspeed's History of Madison County Tennessee

Robert H. Cartmell was born in Jackson, Tenn., July 27, 1828. His father, Martin Cartmell, was born in Virginia November 2, 1797, and came to Tennessee with his mother. At the age of eighteen he enlisted in Gen. Jackson's body guard, and served in the Georgia and Florida campaign against the Indians. He was married to Margaret Neill, of Wilson County, who died October 24, 1820, having borne two daughters, who are both dead. In 1827 the father married Miss J. A. Sharp, and the fruits of their union were three sons and two daughters, our subject being the eldest member of the family. The father was a saddler by trade and owned several large farms, one of which was the finest in the county. Besides this, lie owned a large number of slaves. He died at his home in Jackson July 4, 1864. The mother was born in Rutherford County in 1809, and is now living in Jackson. Robert H. Cartmell was raised in that town and graduated from the West Tennessee College. He served a short time in the Confederate Army, but was discharged, at Tupelo, Miss., on account of disability. March 27, 1850, he married Miss M. J. Baldwin, daughter of Alfred Baldwin, and their union resulted in the birth of eight children, four of whom are living: Lizzie, Gaston B., Robert H. and Harry Martin. Mrs. Cartmell was born in Richmond County, N.C., and died at her present home May 31, 1865. Our subject is an old line Jacksonian Democrat and a member of the K. of P. and old school Presbyterian Church. He owns 800 acres of land one mile from Jackson.
