I don't know of a William L. but I know of a William Henry Cannedy, who married a Mary Melissa Luvina Faith of Fulton, Georgia in the late 1800s. William Henry was my greatgrandpa and reportedly is related to the Cannedys in Greene County, Illinois. I'm having trouble finding anything about the children of a William Cannedy who married an M. Allen on Rootsweb.com. They had a James Franklin Cannedy, tons of girls with Irish sounding names, a Thomas Cannedy but none of the childrens' kids are listed on all of the links I saw on www.rootsweb.com. William Henry's siblings were Clyde Cannedy and Sally Cannedy. The men reportedly all worked for the railroad or the Pony Express in west Texas. William Henry and Mary Melissa Faith lived in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida before moving to Texas and possibly in Kansas. I know Mary Melissa's dad was a judge, if that helps anyone looking up a William Henry Cannedy. If anyone knows anything on my greatgrandparents or great uncle or great niece please feel free to e-mail. Jean knows what she is talking about and has done lots of good research. Thank you for that Sincerely, Brandi Hart, McKinney, TX I'm not sure if all the Cannedys in Collin County, TX are related to all of the ones in Wichita Falls, TX but I'm sure we are somehow.
