Thomas Walter Cantey, born Barnwell, SC and lived in Augusta GA, joined the Army in Columbus, Ohio where his Aunt on his maternal side lived with her family (Laura Beard Witt). Both his parents died at a young age. He became a buglar in the US Army living in New London, CT and at Ft. Wright, NY. The last known info I can find on him is that he was discharged from the Army at Ft. Moultrie, Charleston, SC in 1913. He had a family in New London (which included my mother Nellie Cantey) but I don't know if he returned there. He seems to have disappeared in thin air. He may have died before 1920 as his wife (Fannie Enos Cantey) remarried by that time. They could have divorced also?
