    1146. JOHN H. CANTRELL (Thomas W., Jacob, Thomas, John, Joseph, Richard) was born in McMinn county, Tenn. Married Louie Christie, only daughter of Harlan Page and Susan C. Christie, at Brooklyn, N.Y., Jan. 9, 1908. He graduated from the University of Tennessee in the class of 1885. Studied law in the office of Judge James Burch Cooke and was admitted to the Bar in 1887. He is a prominent and successful lawyer of Chattanooga, Tenn., where he is identified with many public institutions. Without solicitation on his part he was elected to the office of city attorney, which position he filled very acceptably for two terms. He modestly disclaims any special power as a writer, but his friends assert that articles emanating from his pen have materially assisted in improving both city ordinances and laws for better government in the state. He was secretary of the Cantrell Reunion Committee, and was unanimously elected president of the Cantrell Family Association, which was organized at the meeting held Sept. 5, 1907, at the Jamestown Exposition.
