The information is incorrect about JOHN MILLEDGE CANNADY being born at Moniac, Ga. He was born in Bryan County Georgia to JOHN and SARAH(Last name unknown) CANNADY. JOHN CANNADY(The father of JOHN MILLEDGE CANNADY) was born in South Carolina c. 1796 to STEPHEN and MARY CANNADY, who relocated to Bryan Co Ga. c. 1801. If you will check the Bryan County Georgia gen web site, you can read about this family. Also on Rootsweb of Baker Co Fla., I have posted numerous records on this family. JOHN CANNADY was NOT born in Ireland. This is what happens when people post information without Documentation. JOHN MILLEDGE CANNADY and his wife SARAH ANN did live in Moniac after they were married.
1820 Bryan Co Ga. Census list
1830 BRYAN CO GA. Census list
JOHN CANNADY (Relocated to Fla, mid 1830's)
1840 Columbia Co Fla. Census list
JOHN KENNEDY (CANNADY
1850 COLUMBIA CO Fla Census list
JOHN KENNEDY (CANNADY)
1860 New River Census list
JOHN CANNADY (KENNEDY)
So you can see by the census that JOHN CANNADY(KENNEDY) never lived in Moniac. He died in the 1860's and his wife, SARAH lived with their son, FRANCIS MARION CANADA in Orange Co Fla. She died in Orange Co Fla. The Grave Stones that have been placed in the Moniac Cemetery of Sir JOHN CANNADY and SARAH MISSOURI POWELL CANNADY have been placed there by "Others" These stones are NOT original, and the information about this family has some mis-information and mis-documentation. Remember, DOCUMENTS are very important...
I descend from JOHN CANNADY'S(Born c. 1796) sister, ELIZABETH, who married JAMES WEST.
