Letter from the 26th Ind Volunteers Prarie Grove, 10 Miles from Fayetteville, Arkansas, December 10 1862
Kind Uncle:. . . The gallant 26 fought like heroes, and suffered severely, nineteen were wounded and two killed in our company. William J. Cannon and William H Hoover were killed dead on the field. Michael Barnett and Henry Hazen were mortally wounded... A woman came in yesterday to see if she could find any of her kindred among the killed. She found her father, her brother, and her husband, all killed! O, she just tore about all day. One of our boys found his brother killed on the field! The brother was a secesh [sic], and our soldier buried him and never shed a tear! O, it looks horrible to see the dead pilled up like wood! They begin to smell rather strong, and the men they sent back to bury them are going to join our army, and let them lie there and rot! The hogs are eating many of them up.
Yours truly, M A Collins, P.B. Wever, Esq
The two remaining brothers survived the war. They were Joseph Curtis Cannon (Co E 87 volunteer Infantry) and Isaac H Cannon (Co E 42 Regiment). Isaac was wounded in the right leg and his wife later filed disability papers due to his injury. Isaac was wounded near Atlanta on General Shermans march to the sea. While both men married only Joseph had children. Isaacs pension papers were closed by his adopted daughter Helen Cannon Brelsford.
Letter from Capt. Troutman. Camp 87th Ind Vols, Near Atlanta, Georgia, August 15, 1864.
Friend Fuller - Dear Sir: . . . To sum up, the fighting of the 87th during the present campaign amounts to but very little.

Company E's casualties are as follows: Sergt. Samuel Leavitt, wounded in the shoulder, slightly, June 10; Alfred Hiser, in scrotum, severe, July 20, from which he died at Kingston, Ga., Aug 9th; Jesse Oldham, in foot, contusion, Aug 5; Isaac H. Cannon, in shin, slight, Aug 13 . . . Company E left Ringgold with forty- one men, and now has thirty-eight; nine having been sent back sick as follows: E. M. Rans, Wm. E. Dukes, H. S. Ross, Sergt. Richie, Daniel Herald, Martin Brunson, John Anderson, James Hurst and A. Hiser, wounded. Gained from hospitals, Corporals Bennet and J. W. Rush; J. R. Smith, J. G.

In 1865-1868 Clement lived in Kansas City Mo according to his biography.
In 1870, Clement lived in Burlington Ks, Coffey Co per the 1870 Census. The court records of Coffey Co show that Clement and Eliza were involved in a lawsuit with Charles Craft over the ownership of some land. The earliest dates are 1 Dec 1870 through 27 Dec 1871.
In 1872-1876 Clement lived in Longton, On 24 June 1875 Clement purchased the following lots 69, 71 in block number 27 in Longton Ks from Ferdanand Rischoff for $30.
On 14 Feb 1876 Clement and Eliza sell the the following lots 69 and 71 on 5th street and lot 152 in block 27 on Kansas Ave in Longton to Eitio Kendall for $475.
In between 1876 and 1881 Clement reportedly lived in Hutchinson, Reno Co., Ks.
In 1881-1885 Clement lived in Howard. On 31 August 1881 Clement leased a stable in Howard.
Clement was engaged in the Livery and transfer business under the firm name C.H. & E Cannon in Howard, Ks. It is interesting to note that the main street in Howard, Ks is named Wabash and that Clement's earliest experience would have been of his father working on the Wabash and Erie Canal in Indiana. So far all attempts at determining how the streets were named in Howard have been fruitless.
On Jun 9 1881, George Cannon (Clements youngest son) died in a fire that consumed the Cannon barn in Howard, Ks. It was the first fire in Howard according to newspaper accounts. Havey Miller (Clements oldest son) told his son that he suspected that Indians had set the fire because they had been admiring the horses in the stable and did not have enough money to buy them. Yet they milled around town all day. After the fire, neither the horses nor their remains could be found-- and the Indians were also gone.... Newspaper articles speculated that George had fallen asleep with a lit cigar but Harvey the brother of George did not believe the newspaper.
The Howard Courant reported the fire as follows:
"Howard had her first fire on Saturday morning of last week, and one too which will long be remember by those who witnessed the horrible results. About three o'clock in the morning while everybody was in bed and sleeping the soundest , Mr. C. H. Cannon's livery barn located just north of S. A. Brown & Co's lumber yard and fronting on Washington Street was discovered to be on fire, the flames first showing near the rear of the barn which was 140 feet deep and 30 feet wide and two stories high. The alarm was given as soon as possible, but before many people could be awakened and get there, almost the entire barn was in flames and the much dreaded fiend had nought to do but go on its wild fury until it had consumed everything within its reach. The people of Howard have heretofore escaped so well from the ravages of the fire fiend that no preparations have ever been made to battle with it and never until these large flames appeared did any one realize, apparently, that it was necessary to save the property of the town. However, our people rushed to the scene as soon as possible, and did all in their power to save what property they could although the amount save was small as compared with that lost. There were twenty five heard of horses in the barn, nineteen of which were burned up, only six escaping and they were the more inferior ones, seven buggies and one carriage harness, and a large amount of corn and other feed and a lot of furniture. The house in which Cannon lived, standing just across the alley, west of the barn was also burned. It was the property of Mr. N.B. Cartmell, insured for $800 and worth $1,000.00 or $1,200.00. By diligent work most of the household goods were saved. The stable was insured for $1000. But the saddest and most deplorable feature of the affair was the burning to death of George Cannon, the proprietor's youngest son, who was sleeping in the second story of the barn, and was no doubt smothered to death without ever waking up. He had been out to Mr Hughes' the evening before. The people of Howard and Elk county are doing a handsome thing by subscribing money to assist Mr. Cannon to rebuild his barn which was destroyed by fire last Saturday morning, something near a thousand dollars being already subscribed. For the accomplishment of this much credit is due to Mr N Momma who took the matter in hand and has given it his attention for a couple of days heaving the cares of his own business and his firm giving 4100.00 toward the amount. It is a notable fact worth mention that Fuller & Lambert who lost three horses and one buggy worth in the aggregate about $500.00 also subscribe $50.00 toward partly replacing Mr. Cannon's loss. There is another gentleman who is worth of assistance Mr. Dusinberre who carries the mail from there to the falls, he having lost his best team worth about $200.00 and is left in a condition that he is compelled to borrow a horse to continue his work. He is a poor man, not able "stand the loss, and we trust the people here and at the Falls will raise money enough to restore him at least a portion of his also."
On 31 August 1881 Clement leased a stable in Howard.
On 26 March 1883, Clement purchased a strip of land fifty feet wide and the length of lots 112,114, 116, 118, & 120 in Howard KS for $3,600.
On 6 July 1883 Clement and Eliza sell a strip of land fifty feet wide and the length of lots 112,114, 116, 118, & 120 in Howard KS for $1800.
In 1883-1886 Clement lived in Elk Falls
On 14 March 1886, Charles, middle son of Clement, dies in Elk Falls at age. Charles had married Dora or Madora Kasson (M 4 May 1879) and had one son. That son, Jess, is also named in Clements will. The obituary in the Elk Falls Democrat read "Charley Cannon, a former resident of Howard and an old settler in Elk County, died at Elk Falls on Friday last, aged twenty-eight years, six months and nine days. He was buried in Grace Lawn Cemetery on Saturday."
In 1887-1889 Clement lived in Arkansas City
In 1889- ? Clement lived in Guthrie OK Teritory
September 22, 1891 Clement and Harvey filed a claim in Lincoln Co, Oklahoma. In the fall of 1899 they sold out and relocated to Chandler.
On 8 Feb 1899, Clements only surviving son, Harvey Miller, marries Maude Israel. Maude was born in Canton, McPherson Co, Ks on 11 Sept 1879. Two sons were born to this marriage. George Israel Cannon (26 Jan 1904) and Howard Harvey Cannon (2 July 1909). Note Oklahoma became a state in 1907.
The 1910 Census recorded Clement & Eliza, Harvey & Maude & George and Howard.
Clements grandson Jess Cannon described his grandfather in a letter as follows:
"Well I lost my father when he was 26 and I was 4, so after a couple years my mother re-married, and I shuffled back & forth between my fathers parents (Clement & Eliza) & my mothers homes. My fathers father was a Scotch-Irishman & his wife a Pennsylvania Dutch gal, (one rainy day when I was about 8 or 9, I asked her, How come, such a union? Well she said those Irish boys from a settlement up in Indiana had heard that Dutch girls were good workers, I guess) That was near Rensselaer, Ind, They ran a store in K.C. Mo in the early 70s, then on to Howard Kan where they operated a hotel & livery stable, fire burned up 32 head of horses and 27 vehickles & one of their 3 sons, so they came to this town & operated a stone quary for a couple years, & studdied law at night. So when old Okla opened up, He got the appointment of Guthrie Oklas 1st City Atturney for 2 years. Then the Sac & fox country opented up, (Indian reservations) & he & remaining son took a homestead there 34 miles east of Guthrie. & he remained there for 8 or 9 years, sold & run a feed store in Chandler Okla till he died _oor 12 years later. He was teaching a country school when he met his future wife. Said he was a 2nd cousin of Uncle Joe Cannon & cousin of the Cannon Towel guns. So you can see why he was a hot republican.
Note the reference to Uncle Joe Cannon. Joe Cannon was a notoriously corrupt US Speaker of the House of Representatives (1903-1911) from Illinois. To his political enemies he was the "Tyrant from Illinois". An examination of Joe Cannons family, as published in his Memoirs, tends to disprove the link as claimed by Clement since Joe Cannon was born in North Carolina. His father was also born in North Carolina. Joes Grandfather was born in London. He emigrated to Montreal and then moved to North Carolina.

The link to the founders of Cannon Towels has not been explored.
Clements Biography described his politics as follows: "In National affairs Mr. Cannon is an uncompromising Republican, though not a politician nor office-seeker. In the fraternities he is associated with the Odd Fellows only."
Eliza Kenton wife of Clement died in Chandler, Oklahoma on 27 July 1910. She was burried in Grace Lawn Cemetary, Howard Ks beside her sons.
Clement Cannons obituary in the June 21 1912 issue of the Chandler New-Publicist yields several interesting facts.
Strong>Passing of an eighty-niner
C.H. Cannon, senior member of the firm of Cannon & Son, died at the home of his son, Harvey M. Cannon, on Price Avenue, last Thursday evening, after an intermittent illness of several months. Funeral services, conducted by Rev. Thackeray of the M.E. church, was held at the home Friday afternoon and was largely attended by the many friends of the deceased. Music was furnished by the choir of the Presbyterian Church. The remains were taken to Howard, Kansas, Friday evening where they were interred beside those of the wife and a son. Clem H. Cannon was born in Maryland on September 17, 1832. Moved to Kewana, Ind., at an early age and later moved to Rensselaer, where on December 6, 1856 he was united in marriage to Eliza Kenton. They resided in Indiana until 1865 then emigrated to Kansas, remaining in that state until the opening of Oklahoma in 1889, when they came here and have resided at or near Chandler since.
Deceased is survived by a daughter by a first marriage, Mrs. Emma Reynolds of Chicago; a son Harvey M., of this city; a nephew J. C. Cannon of Arkansas City, Kan., and other relatives.
During the many years he had resided in Chandler Mr. Cannon has so lived his live that not a man in the community is more favorably known or respected. His death is a loss to our town. To the sorrowing relatives the sincere sympathy of all is extended.
What is interesting to note is J.C. Cannon of Arkansas was not a nephew but a grandson of Clement. J.C. would have been a nephew to Harvey who presumably supplied the facts for the article. It is also interesting to note that Clements birthplace is listed as Maryland not Delaware. Clement in his Biography said he was born in the vicinity of Symrna. Also in the 1850 and 1860 census his birth place is listed as DE. Perhaps Harvey was confused or maybe there is some truth....
Harvey Miller Cannon was the executer of Clements will. Clement bequeathed to his daughter Mrs. Charles E Reynolds of Chicago Illinois the sum of $150. He also bequeathed $250 to his grandson Jesse W Cannon who was the son of Clement's middle son Charles.
Clement Cannon died 13 June 1912 in Lincoln Co, Chandler, Oklahoma. He was buried in Grace Lawn Cemetary, Howard Ks. The tombstone is now gone but the city Clerk determined that Lot 47 of Section 6 had 5 Cannons.

Harvey Miller Cannon:
In Clement Cannons obituary from the Howard Newspaper in June 1912, there is a short biography of Harvey Cannon. "Harve was the bass drummer in the first Howard band, and afterward played snare drum. We have an old photo of the Howard Band taken in uniform showing Harve Cannon wish his snare drum. Harve was also a good baseball player and was catcher for the old Longton Grasshoppers before he was full grown. He afterwards was a good pitcher, and worked in the box for Howard in many games. He also played with Elk Falls after he left Howard, then went to Arkansas City and played professional ball there and at Guthrie for several years. He hasn't played now for many years but still retains a lively interest in the game. Harve didn't marry till he was about 40 years old--he is now about 55 and now has a wife and two children. He has been operating a feed store at Chandler, Okla for several years in partnership with his father, as Cannon & Son, and is prospering. He is the last remaining member of his immediate family. He had two brothers, George, who died here in the burning of the C.H. Cannon livery stable in 1881, and Charley who died at Elk Falls in 1886. His mother died about two years ago. His brother Charley left one son, Jesse Cannon, who came up with him last Saturday. He is a big, fine looking young man of 28, is married and is a tailor at Arkansas City. Jesses's Mother who was a daughter of Oris Kasson, now lives at Joplin, Mo.

Sarah E Cannon
Sarah is the oldest daughter of Isaac and Nancy Cannon. Sarah is also the only daughter to survive to adulthood. Sarah is referred to in a letter dated Ground Hog Day 1881. She is listed in the 1850 census. Sarah married Samuel W Sellers 26 Aug 1853 at the age of 18 in Fulton Co, Indiana. Knowing Sarah's married name made it possible to find her in the 1860 census. She is living in Liberty twp, Fulton Co, IN. Her husband Samuel Ward Sellers is a blacksmith.

KEWANNA PRODUCE CO. [Kewanna, Indiana]
The Kewanna Produce Co. closed its doors and retired from business Saturday night by a mutual agreement between the partners C. M. Snepp and W. T. Cannon. The reason for this voluntary withdrawal is that the local field is overcrowded and the business could not be made to yield sufficient profit to justify a continuance.
