Cantwell Family Heraldry

Ind01bar

The Cantwell family of Ohio are descendants of William Cantwell and Margaret O'Brien, both originally of County Cork, Ireland.  They came to America in about 1770 to marry, against the wishes of their parents.  William and Margaret were married in Baltimore, Maryland and settled in the far western part of Virginia, later known as West Virginia.  They had at least four sons: John, William, Edward, and James.
