Thanks, Deborah, but I don't think this is my Cannon line. It's hard to tell, though, since you haven't given any dates.

The Cannons I'm looking for are the ancestors of Joseph Cannon, who was born in 1760 somewhere in North Carolina. I have reason to believe it may have been in Pitt County, since there seems to have been a concentration of Cannons there in the latter half of the 18th century.

I'm a little confused; you say your "Great Grand Father is William Cannon who married a Elizabeth Proctor." Did you mean to say "great grandfather," or perhaps, Great-great-great-great-grandfather? I rather doubt you're 200 years old or so. I take it that your William Cannon, then, is your earliest known Cannon ancestor, right? My Joseph was born 30 years earlier than your William, so, while there may not be a father/son connection, your William still might be related in some way. It's hard to say, at this point.
