Oops! I said William Stephen Canty born 3/8/1787 was the only known LA Canty source. He wasn't. His father William Canty had first married Catherine Russ and had son James Canty born about 1775. James moved to Avoyelles Parish, married Susanna Wade and had sons James Canty, Jr. born July 1807 and George Canty born August 1809. So, ther are three Canty males possibly the ancestor of Cornelius Canty.
