WOW, This is so great!! Thankyou so much! In trying to connect the dots, so to speak, with my Cannon family, I have always kept in mind that my dad said his family came from England, not Ireland. It was a discussion he & my mom had since she was all proud of her Scottish/Wallace clan. Her mom was a Horlsey & I just scanned through & saw a Margaret Horsley that I believe is also in my line. My Horsley gr.grandfather married a Roberts whose mother was a Cannon!! That's from my mom's side. I know my dad was a George Robert Cannon, his dad was George Marshall Cannon, his dad was Iverson Marshall Cannon & his dad was a John Cannon married to an Ann ?. One Census shows John being from S.Carolina with a few brothers, one of which was Thomas. I'm still trying to make sure the line goes back from there correctly however, there were 2 John Cannon's so I'm having a bit of trouble. My maiden name is Cannon!!
