Hi - I was just reading your post. Have you been able to find any information on African American Cannady's from North Carolina? My grandfather was from N. Carolina and married a woman from Baltimore Maryland. They moved to Boston but she eventually came back to Baltimore after a divorce. Knowing this information- I think we may be able to help each other. I can only go as far back as my grandfather born abt 1913 - waiting for 1940 census to try to get more info.
