I would like to get in touch with a male Cannon direct descendant of Charles Cannon, son of John James Cannon and Elizabeth Holland. Charles was born Dec 1826 in (probably Trigg Co.), Kentucky, and he died 20 Aug 1925 in Cherokee Co., Texas. He married Mary Ann Wilborn (born about 1836 in Mississippi) on 23 Dec 1856 in Cherokee Co., TX. Mary Ann's mother was named Clarissa, born in Georgia about 1807, whose second husband was A. H. Irby, b c1810 Kentucky.I don't know the first name of Clarissa's first husband.Clarissa, A. H., and Mary Ann were in the 1850 Cherokee Co. census.Charles Cannon's second wife was Frances Wilkins, and they married about 1891 probably in Cherokee Co.
