If you look close at that census there's space for another initial. I think M. is a middle initial. I looked at that census because you didn't give name for his wife. With that information I went to the TX Dth Idx thru 1976 for someone whose parents were father last name Cannon, mother given name of Julia and came up with this match. Since Emma was born in January of 1870 sure seemed like the family would still be in MS on the 1870 census. Needed something to hang our hat on as Gus is probably a nickname.

TX Dth Idx thru 1976:

name: Emma Arada Mcclung
death date: 01 Dec 1963
death place: El Paso, El Paso, Texas, United States
gender: Female
race: White
death age: 93 years
estimated birth date:
birth date: 18 Jan 1870
birthplace: Mississippi
marital status:
spouse's name:
father's name: Cannon
father's birthplace:
mother's name: Julia Smith
mother's birthplace:
place of residence:
burial place:
burial date:
additional relatives:
film number: 2117355
digital film number: 4137705
image number: 01388
reference number: 76119

1870 census Calhoun Co, MS:

Cannon, Elisha, 50, b AL - land 1200/personal 600
" Julia, 38, b SC
" John, 18, b MS
" Martha, 16, b MS
" Mary, 13, b MS
" Lula, 11, b MS
" Gustavo, 3, b MS ***** your Gus
" Emma, 4/12, b MS ***** Emma
" Lydia, 21, b MS
" Columbus, 29, b MS
" James, 17, b MS
" Elisha, 15, b MS
" Charles, 11, b MS
" John, 8, b MS
[too bad relationships aren't shown on this census, looks like two families in same household, maybe children from prvious marriage???]

Next door:

Cannon, Alexander, 24, b MS - no land shown/personal 150
" Elisabeth, 21, b MS
" Phebia 4, b MS

Next door, this couple married in DEC:

Cannon, Harvey, 21, b MS, - no land shown/personal 150
" Elisabeth, 18, b MS
" Phebia, 55, b SC - land 400/personal 100

On the 1850 census Elisha has a differnt wife, Sarah.

I went lookking at Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- -- I entered Cannon, Elisha, spouse Julia. Someone else is working on this line. They have his middle name as Martin, sure fits. Names of both wives, and takes the line back some more. They only show one child, Simon Gus Cannon. I would get in touch with the submitter, share what you know and find out sources for her information.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
