I was doing some research and found that William Cannon was born on Curles Plantation in Henrico, this Plantation belonged to his wife Judith Woodson's family. I was curious about that because it did not make sense. So I found a different avenue to dig in.
Williams father is named John Cannon and everybody assumes he is Sr and that his son John is a jr and that his Son would be the third. This is not the case. It appears that Williams father John Cannon is actually a Jr. he was married to Esther Pledge (a.k.a. Hester or Easter) John Cannon's father was also a John Cannon who migrated from England in 1622. It says he was born in 1612. Taking into consideration ages and stuff. I'm assuming that one of those dates is a typo.
Children of Judith WOODSON and William CANNON are:
5.i. Mary CANNON was born 1712 in Stokes, North Carolina, and died BEF 29 JUL 1766 in Charlotte County, Virginia. She married Joseph EAST ABT 1725 in Hanover County, Virginia, son of Edward EAST and Elizabeth WOODSON. He was born 1708 in Henrico County, Virginia, and died 1772 in Louisa County, Virginia. She married William EAST 1743 in Stokes, North Carolina, son of Edward EAST and Elizabeth WOODSON. He was born 1714 in Stokes, North Carolina, and died 9 SEP 1798 in Grayson, Henrico County, Virginia. ii. Martha CANNON. She married William BROWN ABT 1754 in Pickens County, South Carolina. iii. Benjamin CANNON was born ABT 1698 in , Stokes, NC. iv. Elizabeth CANNON was born ABT 1708. She married Abraham CHILDERS. He was born ABT 1681. v. John CANNON was born AFT 1709 in Buckingham County, Virgnia, and died 21 MAY 1757. He married Martha WOODSON ABT 1735, daughter of Joseph Richard WOODSON and Mary Jane WOODSON. She was born ABT 1716 in Goochland County, Virginia. He married Mary PRICE ABT 1740. She was born BET 1708 AND 1729, and died BEF 1733 in Probably Goochland Co, VA. vi. Russell Simcock CANNON was born ABT 1715 in Prince Edward, Henrico, VA, and died AFT 1800 in , Pickens, SC. He married Jane RUDD ABT 1743 in Pickens County, South Carolina. She was born ABT 1722 in Henrico, Henrico County, Virginia, and died BEF 1774.
I've seen reports on a John Simcock Cannon. I believe that the son of William may have that middle name, but without the birth year of this "JOHN SIMCOCK" it can not be confirmed. There is also another mention out there simply of a Simcock Cannon and his birth year falls on the same year as Russell's so he may have gone by Simcock.
