Cantrell descendants gather in Cedartown
Editor’s note: There were some misspellings of names in our last article about the Cantrell reunion, so we have decided to re-run it in this edition with the errors corrected. -KM
The annual CantrellDavidson reunion for descendants of Waddie Thomas Cantrell and Lillia Davidson Cantrell was held on Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017, at the Cedartown Women’s Building on Wissahickon Ave., in Cedartown. Approximately 67 descendants attended. Everyone gathered around the fire place at 12 p.m. for a group picture, followed by blessing of the food and a Bible scripture read by Sammy White.
After lunch Sammy and Janice White addressed family members about the loss of Lynn Cantrell Smith, and family friend Bruce Hackney. Chris, Sierra and Colt Cantrell came from Scottsdale, Ariz., and Martin and Nancy Thompson from Adrian, Michigan, were recognized.
Each family member introduced their family and updated everyone on recent happenings. Door prizes were drawn by Jaxon Long, and he enjoyed passing out the gifts with Sammy White. Family members enjoyed the walk to the Big Springs, some had not visited there in many years. A great time was had by all.
