I see that your Robert East is living in Rockingham Co., NC, Oregonville, in the June 1880 census, along with his mother and siblings. Also in that census is Lucey Kennon, age 19, keeping house in the G.A. Miller household.

Dwelling 3, 1880 census, Rockingham Co., NC, p. 1, Oregonville, June 1, 1880:
G. A. Miller, 67, physician
Mattie S. Miller, 41, wife
Lena Miller, 11, daughter
Insogene G. Miller, 4, daughter.
A. Perkins Miller, male, 32, son, merchant
Mollie Miller, wife (of A. Perkins), 26
Lucy KENNON, 19, keeping house, b. NC (is this YOUR LUCY?)

So Lucy and your Robert East were in the same county and town in 1880.

I also see a birth record in Catawba County, NC, for Albert Holland East, born June 12, 1900, to Robert Clifton East and Lucille Myrtle Cannon.

So, checking the CANNON spelling, I find who I think might be your "Lucy Kennon."

1870 US Census, Rockingham Co., NC, Oregonville:
Euriah (?) Cannon, 45, works tobacco factory, b. NC
Martha Cannon, 34, keeping house, b. NC
Martha A. Cannon, 15, at home, b. NC
William Cannon, 13, works tobacco factory, b. NC
Sallie Cannon, 12, works tobacco factory, b. NC
Lucinda (is this LUCY?) Cannon, 11, works tobacco fac., b. NC
Caroline Cannon, 10, at home, b. NC
Robert Cannon, 9, b. NC
Mollie Cannon, 8, b. NC

I think his name was actually Azariah Cannon(nicknamed Assey in the 1860 census). By the 1880 census for Rockingham Co., NC, Oregonville, p. 52, Asariah and Martha Cannon only have Caroline, Bertie, Robert, Mollie, Rosa, Nannie and John at home. Lucey Cannon is working out and keeping house for the Miller family in Rockingham, Oregonville. I wonder if one of Lucey's sisters married a Miller man?

So, you'll need to do some more research, but I'd make an educated guess that your Lucy Kennon is actually Lucinda Cannon of Rockingham Co., NC, daughter of Asaniah and Martha Cannon of the same county.

If Lucey was age 19 in the June 1880 census, and her first child was born August 1881 (John R. East), then I'd guess she and Robert East probably married about 1881 in Rockingham County, NC.

There is an Azeriah Cannon married Sallie Peckeral on Dec 31, 1847, in Rockingham Co., NC, so this might be the father of Azariah Cannon who married Martha and had a daughter Lucinda (Lucy) Cannon. It will take more research.

In the 1860 census, a Thomas Pickerel, age 65, has two young boys living with him named Pinkney B. Cannon, age 9, and Thos. R. Cannon, age 11, who might be grandsons to Thomas Pickerel. It will take more research.

I hope these clues are helpful. I believe your Lucy Kennon to be Lucy Cannon.

Good luck.
