Surname Saturday : Cantell

The CANTELL surname is in my maternal line.  The origins of the surname are unknown, and I have very little information on the family.

Stories and history:

Ahnentafel # 221 : Martha Cantell (bef1775-aft1820).  Mary was born before 1775.  She was married after 1800 to James Alderman (bef1775-bet1850-54).  James was born before 1775, probably in Virginia.  They had at least 8 children, born in Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois.  James died between 1850 and 1854 in Greenville, Bond County, Illinois.  Martha's date of death is unknown.
