Shelby Co. Ohio
Hello Betty, Pleasure to hear from you. The CANNON / CANAAN name has gone thru many changes, for many causes, however most perhaps all are decendents of King Rory O'CANNON High King of Ireland, and King of TirConnel. So certainly the name has been interchangeable. I was looking for Catherine Ruth CaNNON born in Bell city , Ohio. who had married Charles PRETTYMAN, The PRETTYMAN families had her name spelled as CONNON. I ordered her marriage aplication and found that she speeled and signed it as CANAAN , from that I found two Census records that listed her with her Family James CANAAN & Rebecca & Siblings. So PLEASE believe that these can be the same families, This Group of CANAAN's Arrived from Ohio at Same Time in Starke Co. Indiana as another Family of CANNON's Did who's Ebenezer CANNON married Sally J. PRETTYMAN, and both these families arrived from there at same time as My CANNON Family from Shelby & Miami Counties of Ohio did, and These all came from PA, DE, MA. So what CANAAN Family do you have information on. I would love to exchange info with you.
