Most of the Cantrells live in or near Grand Island, Nebraska. Some still remain in or near Cantrell, Illinois. Some as my mother are in the Quad City area. My great grandfather was a Cantrell so my grandmother's maiden name was Cantrell. The name originally was spelled several ways such as Cantrell, Cantral and of course Quantrill which was the original spelling from Wales. Most of the family at some point before the Civil War lived in Ohio and Pennsyvania if I remember correctly. I have a family lineage at home somewhere. I think during and close after the war the name Clark by marriage showed up. My mother of course remembers the older members of the family history much better than I. I know my great grandmother moved to Nebraska in a covered wagon as a child from Ohio.
