In Reply to: John Gannon/Cannon b. 1855 or 1863 Kentucky by elizabeth carle of 41034

My mother was a Gannon. Her father is Norman Gannon. His father was Luther Norman Gannon. At that point, I had easily found Luther and Clarence in another census with Minnie Naederhoff and her husband Odis. I do not believe Minnie is Luther and Clarence's biological mother, although John Gannon appears to be their biological father.

In the 1900 census, John Gannon was married to Eler Gannon and that marriage was 7 years old at the time John and Eler had Luther and Clarence. Luther was also 7 years old. John was much older than Eler, so I just assumed he had been married previously, but thus far I have not been able to find out who the first wife may have been. Minnie could have been a sister, an aunt, a family friend, really have no idea how she connects with the Gannon's.

The only information I have about John Gannon is what I was able to gather from that 1900 census in which he had both Luther and Clarence. In that census, he says he was born about 1855 in KENTUCKY. He also says his parents were born in TENNESSEE. The only person I found that had a John in the household in a 1860 census was Joseph F. Cannon--in that census, again, the name is Cannon, not Gannon and the birthdates match and Joseph F Cannon and Milberry are from Tennessee. I am basically stuck until I can locate more information about John Gannon because that's really all I have. I posted hoping someone on the messaging boards may have critical information that I am missing. Thank you for your time and help.
