BRANSON, CANNON, WATSON posted by Dale Cannon on Thursday, March 12, 1998

Interested in learning more about my G. Grandmother Sallie BRANSON, who married William CANNON on 2 apr 1874. I recently found out that Cynthia BRANSON and her brother John BRANSON were listed in the 1870 census for Athens township but don't know if there are related. She died in 1881 and was buried in the Old Methodist Cemetary, New Athens, Harrison County. Her name (Sallie CANNON) is inscribed on the stone in front of the Methodist Church along with several CANNON's. Also would like any history on the CANNON's who came to New Athens and Harrision County in the early 1800's. I understand there are still CANNON descendants in New Athens area. Gussie CANNON WATSON lived in New Athens until sometime after 1988.

CARR, MCFADDEN posted by Patricia on Thursday, March 19, 1998

I am wondering if the following MCFADDEN family can be found in Harrison County. They emigrated from Co. Cavan, Ireland and I haven't been able to trace them to any place in the USA. However, another family member did live in Cadiz, and so I thought I'd give it a try: McFADDEN, John; born c. 1795 in Co. Cavan, Ireland CARR, Jane; born c. 1800 in Co. Cavan, Ireland John and Jane were married in Co. Cavan and had the following children there: Margaret Ann; b. c. 1827 Hugh b. 1829 Elizabeth b. 1832 They all probably emigrated c. 1832 as did other family members who went ports in Philadelphia and New York. I believe he had a brother, Alexander. This family was Presbyterian.
