The following is an attempt to consolidate all of the known facts about the Cannon family. Isaac Cannon is the earliest known ancestor on this Cannon line. He is reported to have been born in Sussex Co, Delaware near the town of Smyra around 1800. His age has been confirmed by several census (1850-1870). His age has also been confirmed by the Rochester Sentinel. Isaac's birthplace is also listed as Delaware on his sons' civil war enlistment papers.

Isaac does not appear in the 1840 Fulton Co Census nor as far as we can determine does he appear in the 1810, 1820, or 1830 DE census. The 1790 and 1800 census of the county he claims to have been born in show a large concentration of Cannons. Many of those listed have first names of Isaac and Clement. It is unknown how many may be related, if any.

Isaac was a farmer and a blacksmith. His wife Nancy Thomas was also born in Delaware as confirmed by several census. However, Isaac Cannon Jr. listed his mothers birthplace as Jersey in the 1880 census. It is unknown when or where Isaac and Nancy married. Neither of their parents have been identified too date. In 1832, Isaac and Nancy had a son, Clement, in Delaware. Clements birth is also proven by numerous census records and a biography of Clement written in about 1883.

On March 2, 1831, Congress granted land for the Wabash and Erie Canal. The canal was a joint undertaking of Indiana, Ohio, and the federal government. Construction started at Fort Wayne and spread both directions. It took ten years for the canal to reach Toledo in the east and Lafayette in the west. It reached Terre Haute by 1849 and Evansville by 1853. The canal took 22 years to complete and for every six feet of length cost the life of one employee. The construction cost at the time was 15 Million dollars. Although the canal was abandoned after a few decades pieces of it still exist in Indiana. In 1835, Isaac Cannon is reported to have moved to Attica, Indiana while the Wabash and Erie Canal was being constructed. This was the longest canal in the United States. In addition the Wabash and Erie Canal connected to the Miami Canal which stretched another 181 miles. Useage of the canal ended in 1875.

Interestingly enough Isaac and Nancys' second son (Joseph Curtis) listed Tippecanoe Co, Indiana as his birthplace in 1870 and Delaware in 1880. The birthplace of Isaac and Nancys' second child Sarah has now been identified as Atica, IN.

Per the US Government office of land Management, Isaac purchased land in Fountain Co on January 1 1835. The legal description of the land is "lot number two of the subdivision of fractional section 32 in township 22 north of Range 7 W." This land is near the town of Attica, IN.

In 1883 the "Combination Atlas map of Fulton County, Indiana had the following words about the early history of Fulton Co. "Prior to the year 1837, the territory now constituting this township remained in the possession of the Indians, and no white man had come to invade their hunting grounds, or sound with ax or maul the keynote of an advancing army whose purpose was the improvement of the country, the cultivation of the soil, and the up building of homes and farms in a region peopled by a race to whom industry and progress are unknown. That year, however ushered in the dawn of civilization and with it began the era that has borne its fruit in the intervening years, in fine farms and happy homes. John Troutman was the leader of the pioneer forces. He purchased a tract of Government land in Section 28, on the 25 of October, 1836, and on the 28th of September, 1837 came with his family to occupy his land and began the labor of converting it into a farm. He was accompanied hither by his elder brother, Michael Troutman, and Thomas Barnet and Isaac Cannon. All located on land near each other, forming a little neighborhood, and bending their energies unanimously toward the accomplishment of the purpose that had lured them hither. Then there were others who came immediately afterward to join hands with them, or at least to unite with them in a common cause, though quite unaware, at the time of the presence of those we have mentioned. There were Stephen Bruce, Sr., and his sons, Abraham, Bruca and Stephen bruce Jr with their families. Later in 1837, frederick Mohler located nearby. It is believed these were all who came in 1837 and of this number all are now deceased save Isaac Cannon, who at a recent date, was living in the State of Delaware."

On 10 August 1837, "Isaac Cannon of Fountain Co" purchased 160 acres in Fulton Co, Indiana from the office of Land Management. The legal description of the land is "the north west quarter of section thirty three, in township thirty north of Range one East, in the district of Lands subject to sale at La Porte, Indiana containing one hundred and sixty acres."

On 19 July 1838, Isaac purchased two lots numbers 21 and 22 in Pleasant Grove, Indiana for $3503.

"The first name given this small town was Pinhook, this being due to a "hairpin" curve in the road at its edge. Later the name was changed to Pleasant Grove. The town of Pleasant Grove was platted in June, 1845 consisting of two blocks lying south of main street. The block on the east side of Logan street was platted by Eli Troutman and the block on the west side by John Troutman. When the post office was created Feb 18, 1847, it was named Kewanna because there was already another post office named Pleasant Grove in Jasper County....The first settlers came to the Kewanna area September 28, 1837, led by John Troutman. John's elder brother, Michael Troutman, Thomas Barnett and Isaac Cannon brought their families also, and a little neighborhood was formed. "
[Kewanna, The Pleasant Grove, Fulton Co Folks, Vol 2, Willard]

The name Kewanna was adopted in 1871 when the town was incorporated. The city was named for Kee-Wau-Nay whose Potawatomi band lived near 1837 when they were conducted to Kansas by George Proffit.

Union Township is situated in the western part of Fulton County and contains an area of 42 square miles. On account of the level character of the land much of it was originally classed as swamp land and a large amount of artificial drainage has been necessary to save and render fertile and valuable thousands of acres of land. Prior to the year 1837 the territory now constiting Union Township remained in the possession of the Indians and Chief Kewanna was one of the 30 Indian chiefs as frontiersmen in Union Township and no white man had come to invade their hunting grounds. Pioneers John Troutman, Michael Troutman, Thomas Barnett and Isaac Cannon purchased tracts of government land in this township in 1836 and brought their families in 1837 for permanent occupancy and to begin the labor of converting the land into farms. There were others who came immediately afterward to unite with them in this common cause. For several years after the first white settlers came to Union Township their only roads were Indian trails. One of these (now State Road 17) branched off from the Michigan Road at a point about eight miles from north of Logansport and led in a northwesterly direction to the shores of Kewanna Lake, a favorite camping ground and trading post used by the early French and Indian traders. Located in the extreme northwestern part of the township this was the location where a treaty was signed with the Indians and Chief Kewanna in 1837 removing the Potawatomi Indians from the district. Now known as Lake Bruce, it received its name from the Stephen Bruce family that settled there in 1837 and made the first improvements.
[FCHS Quarterly No. 49, pp 54-56 and pp 68-69]

Clement claimed, in his biography, that his father, Isaac, built the second house in Union township.

During the period of 1832-1849s a total of eight children were born to Isaac and Nancy. Two of the three girls all died in their childhood. Sarah was listed in the 1850 census as 13 years old she is not listed with the other Cannons in the 1860 census. Since the two youngest girls died in their youth, it was presumed that she might have died as well. Until recently nothing was known about her. The children of Isaac and Nancy were:

Clement H.b 17 September 1832 Smyrna, DE d 13 June 1912
Sarah E.b 23 January 1837 Atica, INd 5 March 1920
Joseph Curtisb 1837 Tippecanoe, INd 6 Feb 1918

Further evidence that in the early days paupers, both men and women, were bound out to defray the cost of their upkeep, was found today by Harley Kochenderfer while working on a project at the court house in which old records are being revised. Several months ago another man working on the same project, found where the services of a man by the name of Collins, were advertised for sale by the Fulton county commissioners in 1850. Collins was sold into bondage on three different occasions, the records disclosed. In the case uncovered by Mr. Kochenderfer, at the June session of the Fulton county board of commidssioners [sic] in 1850, Rhoda Vincent, a resident of Union township, was bound out to Isaac Cannon at the rate of $1.75 per week to cover the cost of her clothing and medical attention, Cannon to provide her with board and room. The record shows that the services of the Vincent woman were advertised for sale in the newspapers and also by public notices and that Cannon was the only one to bid for the services of the woman, who had been adjudged a pauper. The full record in this case can be found in Record B, page 356 of the Fulton county commissioners' reports. The county commissioners who signed the Vincent report were the late John W. Ingram and Benville Stern.
[The News-Sentinel, Thursday, June 22, 1939]

Of Isaac and Nancy's sons only Clement, Sarah and Joseph Curtis are known to have had children. Isaac Cannon Jr. and his wife adopted.

Clement married Elizabeth Kenton on December 6 1856.

The children of Clement and Eliza were:

Harvey Miller Cannon b 8 Mar 1858 Rennselaer, INd 23 Aug 1933
George W Cannonb 20 Feb 1862 Rennselaer, IN d 4 Jun 1881
Charles H. Cannonb 6 Dec 1859 INd 14 Mar 1886

In 1860 Elizebeth Kenton probably a neice (age 14) of Clements wife is living with Clement and Eliza (Kenton) Cannon.

On Aug 11 1862, Isaac and Nancy Cannon sold to Clement Cannon some land for the sum of $400.

Isaac's wife, Nancy, died on 6 May 1874. She was buried in the Shafer Cemetary in Kewana Indiana. The inscription on her tombstone reads " Nancy, wife of Isaac Cannon, died May 4 1874 age 73yr 4 mo 10da. Her obituary dated May 9 1874 in the Rochester Sentinel said:
"On the 4instl, Mrs. Nancy Cannon, aged 73 years. The deceased was one of the pioneers settlers of this county, living in this community over 37 years. Many relatives and friends are called to mourn their loss."

Then according to Clement's biography Isaac returned to Delaware and passed his remaining days. And while this appears to be the literal truth, the details that are emerging today are far more interesting.

The Rochester Sentinel, Saturday January 2, 1875 reported that; "Uncle Isaac Cannon after much traveling and tribulations, has succeeded in securing a better half. He has located in Rochester. Uncle Isaac is an old and respected citizen of this place, and we would gladly welcome him back again."

On Saturday March 3, 1877 the Rochester Sentinel reported some statistics from the enumeration of all the male inhabitants of Rochester township over the age of 21 years. Isaac Cannon was reported to be between the ages of 70 and 80. The newspaper concluded that: "Only one in a thousand adults reach 90, four that attains 80 years and twenty-three that reaches three score and ten."

The Rochester Sentinel reported in 1878 that J.M. Gorsline has sold his farm to Uncle Isaac Cannon. A copy of the deed reveals that Isaac purchased 68 acres on 6 April 1878 in the west half of SW quarter of Section 31 TWP 3D, Range 2 East in Fulton Co, Indiana.

Another letter from Isaac Cannon Jr to William Barnett who was living in Allen Co, Iola, Ks is interesting due to the information it provides and the evidence that the brothers Clement and Isaac Jr were not keeping in touch.

To: William T. Barnett

 Kewanna Indiana
 January (Blurred)1878

Dear old friend, You may be surprised at receiving a letter from me, but I have been thinking so often about old friends and of our school days that I have come to the conclusion that we were fast growing old and soon will be numbered with the dead, oh time flies so rapid it seems but as a yesterday that we were boys in our plays with thoughts upon what we would be when we grew to be men. 1855 just 23 years or 25 at most since we saw the last of our cherished old log school house, with the names of the school children then as they came up before my mind. I almost see them in their play. I could number them by the score that have passed away. Some in far off states, we are scattered all ore the union. Do you ever think of our good day's Billy. What a change time makes. You no doubt can picture the field of battle where some fell where their Bones are now reposing and will until the Bugle sounds by Gabriels Angel for them to rise.(then) and not till then will we all meet again. I often think of the song the boys sung so often (Just 20 years ago) I think it never can get to be an old song. For the word are so full of meaning and fills every one's mind with thoughts of their younger days and Recalls faces to memory that they cherished, and friendships ties, and they be DEAD. The names and memories of loved ones seems ever near. I expect I am growing tedious of this subject and will close.

I hope you are enjoying life health and the comforts of home, wife and children for what we have here in this life is all we get in this country.

Things in Fulton Co have changed somewhat since you was here. A great many strange people have come in and when I go to the town I scarcely see any one I know. The weather has changed for the colder and it is awful cold now. I am living on a farm now and have been for nearly two years. I find I like it better than making harness. I had a splendid crop last season and made some money. I have 320 acres here 150 in good cultivation and the rest is in pasture lands. It is a good stock farm. I want to feed a lot of cattle another winter. I have not been fixed so I could before, I find there is where the money is (in stock.) Do you know where Wm. S. Barnett is now and what his address, James Killmer is here from the west visiting his folks he leaves again soon. Do you know where Clem Cannon is I have lost all trace of him. He has not written to me for over a year, how do you like it down where you are, what is land worth both the improved and the unimproved, did the crops do well the last season. I have been thinking of going to Arkansas South of you and have written more than I had thought I would when I began and probably more than you will want to study out. For I know you can't hardly read the half of it so I will close for the present hoping to here from you soon.

 I remain your Friend 
 I. H. Cannon
 Kewanna, Ind.
 Giving respects to all.

In a letter from Thomas William Barnett to William and Mary Barnett dated 25 May 1874 from Kewanna to Iola Thomas Barnett said "Your Mother & Nan do not get along very smoothly. But I hope it will be smoother when Nan gets through clucking. Aunt Nancy Cannon died the 4th of this month complain old age."

In another letter from Thomas William Barnett to William and Mary Barnett dated 2 Feb 1880 Thomas Barnett lists those who have died since William and Mary Barnett had last been home which was probably 1874. In the letter Nancy Cannon {died 6 May 1874} and the second Mrs. Cannon are both listed.

In a third letter from Thomas William Barnett to William Barnett dated 21 Mar 1873 . "PS Troutman is quite poorly and has been ever since he got home from Indianapolis (which is about two week.) Uncle Ike Cannon is very sick with Arecipelas in the head. Clem Cannon has moved to Howard Co. Ks & is keeping store in Longton".

From the Fulton county courthouse (Nov 1, 1880) Isaac Cannon deeded that half of the southwest corner of section number 31 in township no thirty in range no 2 east 68 acres to his wife Harriet Cannon.

From a letter written Ground Hog Day 1881, Kewanna Fulton Co, Indiana from Thomas W Barnett to William Thomas Barnett, Iolla, Allen Co, KS

"A no 3-Old Isaac Cannon went to Delaware last spring and married an old girl, however she is not so mighty old, for she is younger than his Sarah. And he has deeded her his property. And reports says there is a prospect for an heir which may be the case. And she wants to go back to Delaware."

Since Sarah, Joseph Curtis, and Isaac Jr were still alive and in Fulton Co, IN at this time, I wonder what they thought about this younger women and their father......

From the Delaware Public Archives card index:
7 June 1880 to Hattie B. Walker (marriage bond 34:161) (he called Isaac Cannon Sr.) This document provides the only known copy of what I presume is Isaac's signature. All other documents such as land sales only have his mark.

It is not known if this is our Isaac but the name of the bride and the date of the marriage as well as the location of the marriage would lead one to believe that this is indeed our Isaac.

From the Fulton county courthouse on Oct 17 1881, Harriet Cannon sold that half of the southwest corner of section number 31 in township no. thirty in range no. 2 east 68 acres to Edwina Reckriev for $1200. Both Harriet and Isaac placed their seal on the deed. So Isaac is still alive in 1881.

From the Sussex Co Deeds K6:218 (5 Dec 1881) Isaac and Harriet Cannon for $100 buy 18,450 sq ft of land near Harrington, Mispillion on West side of Wiener St which runs by the M.S. Church, from James A. and Margaret J. Moore.

In 1883 the "Combination Atlas map of Fulton County, Indiana reported that Isaac Cannon was living at that time in Delaware.

Isaac Cannon is listed in an Index of the Hollywood Cemetery, Harrington, DE. The date of birth is listed as 6 July 1805. The date of death is listed as 14 November 1883. Harriet is also listed as dying on Dec 15 1920. It appears as if she re-married because a J.H. Willis is listed as husband in a plot near hers. His death is listed as April 23 1910. Two other people are buried in the plot which are perhaps Harriets parents. Nancy Walker d:21 August 1878 and James Walker d: November 14 1892.

This concludes the known information about Isaac and Nancy Cannon.

Clement Cannon:

Clement Cannon was the oldest son of Isaac and Nancy Cannon. He was born in 1832 in Delaware. Clement graduated from the Logansport Seminary in Logansport, Cass Co. Indiana and taught school for four terms in Fulton Co. The school at Logansport first opened in 1829. The school was torn down and rebuilt in 1849. The new building was a three story brick building was opened for educational purposes in Sept 1849. The Reverend Martin M Post was principal. This building was always called "The Seminary" for upper grammar grades and high school. "Up to this period the school system was slowly, but surely developed to a standard warranting the introduction of more advanced methods of instruction. As a rule, the "school-master", according to their facilities, did good service after the "sledge -hammer" style, laying a solid foundation, perhaps for the more successful culture of advanced instructors." Per Thomas B. Helm's History of Cass County 1886 and letter from Harriet Mehaffie to George Cannon dated 1967.

After Clement moved to Jasper Co he continued to teach.

Sometime prior to August of 1854, Clement Cannon married Eliza Jane ???. Her last name is not known. In August of 1854, Eliza Jane filed for divorce in Fulton Co Court. The divorce was granted on grounds of "Misconduct". Eliza was granted custody of her unborn child. This child, I believe, became Emma Reynolds who was named in Clements will.

"Eliza Jane Cannon vs Clement Cannon; Petition for Divorce; Process served, deft called & defltd. Divorce granted & Alimony of $300. Payable in 6 and 12 months with interest. And she have custody of her child after its birth until the further order of this court."

August 1855, Elora J. Cannon-vs-Clement Cannon, Isaac Cannon & William Elston; Complt for detention of property; Find for the Defts Judgmt for defts for costs.

In 1 July 1856, Clement was back in court. This time the family of Margaret A. Riley sued him for Bastardy. Isaac and Clement were both named in the suit and Clement was named as the father. My own speculation was that Isaac was named because he had the money to pay off the mother's family. Isaac and Clement were to appear before the court on 4th Monday of August (1856) . The same Margaret A. Riley married Hirem Hale on August 21, 1856. The outcome of the court case and the pregnancy are not known. The 1860 census for Fulton Co, Ind does not list a Margaret or Hirem in Fulton County, Indiana.

Clement is then reported to have moved to Rensselaer, Indiana (2 counties west of Fulton) and on December 6 1856, he married Elizabeth Kenton. Elizebeth was the grand niece of Revolutionary War Hero Simon Kenton (sometimes referred to as General Simon Kenton). Simon was a contemporary of Daniel Boone a frontiersman and an Indian fighter.

Clement and Elizabeth had three sons Harvey Miller (b 6 March 1858), Charles (b. 6 Dec 1859), George (b. 20 Feb 1862). All three were born in Indiana presumably Jasper Co or Fulton Co. The records from Rensselaer for the wedding and the births are not available due to a courthouse fire in 1862.

The 1860 census lists Clement, Eliza, Charles and Harvey in Union Twp, Fulton County IN on 15 June 1860 right below Isaac, Nancy, Greenup, Isaac Jr, and Joseph. Sarah and her husband were living very close in Liberty Twp.

Land and court Records after 1862 in Rensselaer have not been checked.

However in August of 1862 Charges were filed against Clement Cannon for surety the Peace in Fulton Co. "Charges were dismissed for want of prosecution."

During the Civil War, Clement claimed, in his biography, that he served as the Postmaster of the postal department at Louisville, Ky. In 1864, he resigned and returned to Kewanna. This has not been validated.

However, the Fulton County Historical Files do list Clement H. Cannon as postmaster of Kewanna as of March 30, 1864.

Thomas W Barnett in his Diary had several entries concerning the Cannons

March 1864,

During the Ciivil War, four of Clements brothers fought for the Union Army. Two, William and Greenup, died. Greenup served with Co A 26 regiment and died in Lamine Mo and is buried in Kewana, Indiana. Greenup died in a Hospital. Cause of death was aploloxy of the heart. A Military marker was erected in the Kewana Indiana.
