Roscoe William Canter, Jr. Family Page
At this time, Thomas Canter is the oldest
link to our family--and we're not really sure about this. There is

Canters of southwestern VA and eastern TN. But we're working on it
If you have comments or additions to make to this genealogy of the
Canters, please let me know.
