Cannon Family Genealogy Forum
I am looking for information on the ancestors of Robert Cannon of North Carolina. His father was named Henry Cannon, but I have no other information on Henry Cannon. Robert was born in Pitt County, NC, 7 March 1780. He married Ann T. Hill on 2 May 1810 (She was born in Franklin County, NC on 18 November 1793, daughter of Jordan and Mary Hill.) Robert died in Wake County, NC 9 July 1833. Ann died there 29 March 1843.
A son of Robert Cannon and Ann Hill was Henry Jordan Cannon, born in wake County 9 October 1811. He married Sarah Susan Peebles on 22 February 1837. (She was born in Northampton County, NC on 14 February 1815, the daughter of John Peebles and Grizelda Hill Peebles.) Henry Jordan Cannon moved with his wife and children to Fayette County, Tennessee in 1843. A brother had moved there earlier. Henry Jordan Cannon's children were Robert J. Cannon (born 1833), Henry Etheldred Cannon (born 1840), William D. Cannon (born 1842), and Atlas P. Cannon (born 1845).
Henry Etheldred Cannon was the father of Thomas Watkins Cannon, who was the father of Devereaux Dunlap Cannon, who was my father.
