# Note:
Cannon Family History on file with the Delaware County Historical Society
# Note:
Joseph Cannon and his wife Abigail Dexter moved to Cannonsville sometime after 1796. I located Joseph Cannon, Clark, Cannon, Blossom Cannon and Wait Cannon on the 1800 Census for Delaware County NY. They had a son Wait that came to Cannonsville in 1796. This was ten years after Jesse Dickinson first ascended the Delaware,(River). The following is the Cannon Family History written about 1892, and on file with the Delaware Historical Society, Delaware County, NY. Wait Cannon brought his wife from Sharon, CT. all the way on horseback to this then wild and dreary wilderness of pines, much the way with no road but the Indian trail. wait Cannon put up the house where Samuel Hathaway now lives, and lived there until hi s death in 1804. His age was about 24 years. Wait Cannon left three children, Wait, Eliza and Persis. Wait Cannon had a brother Joseph to came to Pinefield. His homestead was on the farm now owned by G.L. Hoag (for many years owned by John Fletcher.)Wait Cannon, son of Wait and Persis Cannon married Sarah Jones. He was at one time in the mercantile business in Masonville. He went from there to Wilkes-Barre, PA and died there leaving a large family
of children. Eliza, Daughter of Persis, daughter of Wait and Persis Cannon, married Abram G. Miller. She left two children,Hariet and Helen. Harriet Miller is Mrs. D.C. Smith of Delhi. Helen died two years ago.
# Note:
Mr and Mrs Miller spent most of their lives in Cannonsville, (kept the hotel many years.) She died past 70 years and he was past 90 at the time of his death. He came from New Berlin when a small child with his father and family, who settled on the farm on the east side of the
Delaware, opposite Speedwell mountain, now owned by Henry Squires. Abram was the only one of the family who remained here. He was a soldier in the was of 1812.
# Note:
Joseph Cannon (brother to Wait) was married twice, his first wife, Harty(?) died in 1810, aged 21. She left 2 Children Roxy and Elisha. Roxy married William Underwood. They moved to New Berlin and both died there. Elisha married Catharine Huyck, daughter of Andrew Huyck. Later he married Mrs. Betsy fuller. Elisha Cannon had two sons in the war of War of the Rebellion. (Civil War) Clark the oldest died in the service, and Joseph the youngest, was seriously wounded. (I believe that the Joseph Cannon in the Revolution was Joseph Cannon #1, listed by the DAR. Elisha would have been too young to have sons in the Revolution.)
# Note:
On a tombstone in the cemetery is this inscription: "Here lies Harty, wife of Joseph Cannon, died March 1810, at 21." "Ebenezer C., Joseph C., and Rachel C. by her side."
# Note:
Joseph Cannon's second wife was Rachel Huyck a Sister to Andrew Huyck. And the children of the second wife were (living) Ephriam, Betsy, and Joseph Cannon. Joseph and his family went west and was living in Wisconsin a few years ago. Wait and Joseph Cannon had a brother, Blossom and a sister Abigail.. Blossom died leaving a daughter, Abigail, whom her
grandmother brought up. She married James Gauley and she died leaving 3 sons, one of whom is now living.
# Note:
Besides the children of Joseph and Abigail Cannon there were two nephews, their names being Benjamin and Nathaniel. 17 Sept 1817, Benjamin Cannon married Persis, the widow of his cousin, Wait Cannon. They had three children. Benjamin, Eliza and George B. Benjamin Cannon,
Sr., was Justice of the Peace. He was the first postmaster in the first post office at Teedville, now called Trout Creek. The name Pinefield, and Mr. Teed was its first postmaster. The great Espous Turnpike passed through Trout Creek which extended from Kingston to Ithaca and was a
stage route. It is possible that that was the first highway laid out within the limits of the town.
# Note:
Benjamin Cannon built the hotel now owned by Henry Durfee, in 1813 or 1814. In 1817 he gave a deed of the land where the old schoolhouse used to stand, and where the Babtist church now stands, also a deed for the land for a cemetery with the road leading thereto; to 2 trustees,
Martin Lane and Caleb Smith. If the land where the schoolhouse was built was ever used for any other purpose than for a school the land reverted to the heirs of the said Benjamin Cannon. Also if the land where the cemetery now is, is ever used for any other purpose than a cemetery, it shall revert to the heirs of the donor. The deed is recorded in the county clerk's office in Delhi.
# Note:
According to the conditions of the deed, when the first schoolhouse was no longer used as a school building, Benjamin Cannon, son of the giver, bought the old building he owning the lands. He sold the property to the Baptist society who used the old school building for meetings
until they built the church now occupying the same site.
# Note:
Benjamin Cannon was a very generous man, kind to the poor and thoughtful for the welfare of others. His house was a refuge for many who needed comfort and aid. His wife carried the same spirit of kindness. He died in 1839, aged 63, His wife, Persis Cannon died in 1859, aged 81 years.
# Note:
Benjamin Cannon, son of Benjamin and Persis Cannon, was a lawyer, graduated from Union College in 1840. He married Ann Miller, A Daughter of Epaphras Miller of Oxford. He was County Clerk of Delaware County. He built the house and laid out the beautiful grounds of "Chester Point" now owned by E.W. Owens. He was Justice of the Peace for many years.
He was interested in the public's welfare and all the good causes. He moved to Oxford in 1873 and died there. (must have been written about 1890) He left 3 children, Robert M, who lives in Buffalo, and Elizabeth B. who is Mrs. Archibald of Scranton,(NY) and Charles B, in Norwich, who
now resides in Oneonta.
# Note:
Eliza, daughter of Benjamin and Persis Cannon, married Erastus Edgerton, of Franklin, who has been for may years a prominent banker of St. Paul, MN.
# Note:
George B, the youngest son of Benjamin and Persis Cannon married Ann Eliza, daughter of Eligah White, of Franklin. They had two sons, one of whom has been comptroller of the currency. George Cannon resided in New York City.
# Note:
Nathanial Cannon, Brother of Benjamin Cannon, Sr, was a blacksmith. He built a house where M.W. Owens house now stands. He was four times married, the first three wives each dying in the 40th year of her age. first wife's children were Asahel, Benjamin Tracy, N. Stowell, Carriel and John. Benjamin T. Married for his first wife Huldah Smith, Daughter of Caleb Smith. The second wife was Louisa Howland. M. Stowell married Geanette Rogers, a daughter of Dr. Thomas Rodgers. They are now living in Chicago. Passed the fiftyith anniversary of their marriage last November. Mariel married Belinda Owens who died many years ago. The
other sons left Cannonvillle when young. Nathaniel Cannon's second wife was Mrs. Susan Wiest, a sister of Deacon William Hawley of Deposit, and she left three Cannon children, Fanny Eliza, William and Susan. And Susan went west, married and was accidently killed many years go.
Nathaniel Cannon's third and fourth wife left no children. Mr. Cannon sold his home and business to Rev. David W. Nichols and Allen Tinker more than 40 years ago, then moved to the northern part of the county where he died soon after. In 1835 Joseph Cannon moved to Chicago, Illinois,
while others went west. (Idon't know to whom "others" refers to. This ends the History of the Cannon Family by an unknown author.)

1837 his building site was listed as being the Town Wharf property. He established this shipbuilding dynasty in 1792 and continuing until the formation of the Mattapoisett Wharf co., in 1834. The Vessels built here were mostly small merchantmen, one of the first of which was advertised in "the Medley", New Bedford's first newspaper. Ebenezer had 10 Children and two of them were named Ebenezer after their father. Apparently both wives wanted their first born male child to be named after their father.

The following has been taken from the Mayflower Web.
The traditional date that has been ascribed to John Howland's birth
is "about 1592", and this has never really been questioned. However, a
birth about 1599 is clearly a better estimate for the following reasons:
John Howland is called a "manservant" in William Bradford's
passenger list. Servants were contracted out until the age of 25. thus,
Howland must have been under 25 in 1620, meaning he had to have been born
after 1595. Since Howland signed the Mayflower compact, he must have
been born sometime before 1600 to have been legally old enough to sign.
John Howland's wife was born in 1607, and it is most unlikely that
he, at the age of 32, married a 17 year old girl as his first wife. Most
men married about age 25, and since his marriage occurred about 1624,
this would place his likely birth at 1599.
John Howland's last child was born in 1649. If the 1592 date were
accepted, he would have fathered a child at the age of 57, a most
unlikely circumstance.
William Bradford writes that Joh Howland was a "lusty young man" in
1620. It is unlikely that Bradford would call a 28-year old a "young
man". the only other person Bradford called a "young man" in 1620 was
John Alden, who was born in 1599.
# Note: ANCESTRAL SUMMARY
# Note:
The ancestry of John Howland is discussed in John Howld of the
Mayflower through Desire Howland for Five Generation", by Elizabeth
Pearson White. John Howld is the son of Henry and Margaret Howland of
Fenstanton, Huntingdon, England. Henry died on 17 May 1635 in
Fenstanton, and Margaret was buried on 31 July 1629. Besides son John,
who came on the Mayflower, they also had Humphrey, Arthur, Henry, George,
and Margaret. Henry came to Plymouth sometime before 1633, and Arthur
came sometime before 1640.
John Howland is an ancestor toPresident George Bush, and to First
Lady Edith (Carrow) Roosevelt (Mrs. Theordore Roosevelt). Presidents
Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford are descendants of John Howland's brother
Henry. Winstoon Churchill is descended from John Howland's brother
Arthur.

John Howland came on the Mayflower as a servant to John Carver. He
is best remembered for having fallen off the Mayflower during a mighty
storm, as recorded by Bradford.
# Note:
In sundry of these storms the winds were so fierce and the seas so
high, as they could not bear a knot of sail, but were forced to hull for
divers days together. And in one of them, as they thus lay at hull in a
mighty storm, a lusty young man called John Howland, coming upon some
occasion above the gratings was, with a Seele of the ship, thrown into
the sea; but it pleased God that he caught hold of the topsail halyards
which hung overboard and ran out at length. Yet he held his hold (though
he was sundry fathoms under water) till be was hauled up by the same rope
to the brim of the water, and then with boat hook and other means got
into the ship again and his life saved. An though he was something ill
with it, yet he lived many years after and became a profitable member
both in church and commonwealth.

2. Here ended the Pilgrimage of John Howland and Elizabeth his wife. She
was the dan'tr of Gov. Carver They arrived in the Mayflower Dec. 1620 ;
they had 4 Sons & 6 dan'trs from whom are descended a numerous posterity
"1672 Feb'y 23th John Howland of Plymouth deceased, he lived to the age
of 80 yr's. He was the last man that was left of those that came over in
the Ship called the Mayflo- wer that lived in Plymouth ."--[Plymouth
Records.]
There is a painted sign bcard at the side of this gravestone containing
the following inscription:--
The grave of John Howland died Feb. 25, 1672 .
It has been frequently published that Mr. Howland married a daughter of
Governor Carver . This we think is a mistake. In Bradford's History we
find that John Howland married Elizabeth , the daughter of John Tillie .
Mr. Howland was a distinguished man, and devoted to the interests of the
Colony, both in relation to its civil and religious institutions. He was
Deputy and Assistant for several years. His early residence was on Summer
street, but afterwards removed to Rocky Nook , where he died. The remains
of his cellar are visible a short distance north of the residence of the
late Hezekiah Ripley .
The colonial records say, "He was a godly man and an ancient professor in
the ways of Christ, and proved a useful instrument of good in his place."
His descendants are quite numerous. The late Reverend John Howland of
Carver, Mass. , was grandson of Mr. Howland . He was the last man of them
that came over in the Mayflower, who settled in Plymouth . On the passage
to this country in the Mayflower the weather was tempestuous, and in a
severe storm Mr. Howland fell overboard and came near losing his life.
The following is a record of the accident in Bradford's own words.:--
"And in one of them as they thus lay at hull, in a mighty storme, a
lustie yonge man (called John Howland ) coming upon some occasion above
ye grattings, was, with a seele of ye shipe throwne into [ye] sea; but it
pleased God yt he caught hould of ye tope-saile halliards, which hunge
over board, & rane out at length; yet he held his hould (though he was
sundrie fadomes under water) till he was hald up by ye same rope to ye
brime of ye water, and then with a boat hooke & other means got into ye
shipe againe, & his life saved; and though he was something ill with it,
yet he lived many years after, and became a profitable member both in
church and comone wealthe."

According to "The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635," Vol. I, A-B, p. 358, Sarah was the daughter of Robert and Bridget (?) Botfish. NEHGS' Great Migrations Project is probably the most reliable and up-to-date information available for the earliest New England settlers, so you can feel comfortable with its accuracy. According to "The Essex Antiquarian" 10:187, Robert Botfish was a freeman of Lynn, MA 06 May 1635, but removed to Sandwich 1637. The GM book says he was born c1614, English ancestry unknown; he migrated in 1634, married Bridget c1639, and died in Sandwich 19 Nov 165-. In addition to Sarah, b. c1643, he had Mary, b. c1639, m. John Crocker Barnstable, Nov 1659; and Joseph, b. Sandwich 03 Apr 1651, m. by 1674, Elizabeth Besse, daughter of Anthony.

Mr. John Carver, Kathrine his wife, Desire Minter; & 2 Man-servants
John Howland. Roger Wilder. William Latham, a boy, & a maid servant. & a
child yet was put to hime called, Jasper More.
These being aboute a hundred sowls came over in tis first ship: and
began these biginings. And that the great works of his providence are to
be observed. I have thought it not unworth my paines, t take a view of
the decreasings, & Increasigs of these persons, and such change as hath
pased over them, & theirs, in this thirty years. It may be of some use
to such as come after; but however I shall rest in my owne benefite.
I will therefore take them in order as they lye.
mr. Carver and his wife, dyed the first year, he in ye spring, she
in ye somer; also his man Roger, and ye lisle boy Jasper, dyed before
either of them, of ye commone infectio. Desire Minter, returned to her
friend & proved not very well, and dyed in England. His servant boy
Latham after more than .20. years stay in the counrty went into England;
and from thence to the Bajamy Ilands in ye west Indees; and ther with
some others was starved to want of food. His maid servant maried, & dyed
a year or two after her in this place. His servant John Howland maried
the doughter of John Tillie, Elizabeth and they are both now living; and
have .10. children now all living and their eldest doughter has .4.
children and ther .2. doughter, one, all living and other of their
children mariagable, so 15. are come of them.
Of these 200 persons which came first over, in this first
ship togeth; the greater halfe dyed in the general mortality; and Most of
them in .2. or .3. monthes time. And for those wich survifed though some
were ancient & past precreation; & others left ye place and cuntrie, yet
of those few remaining are sprunge up above. 160 persons; in this .30
year. And are now living in this present year. 1650. beside many of their
children which are dead and done not within this account.
And of the old stock, (of O e, & other) ther are yet living this
present year. 1650. nere .30. persons. Let the Lord have ye praise; who
is the High preserver of men.

# Note:
2. Here ended the Pilgrimage of John Howland and Elizabeth his wife. She
was the dan'tr of Gov. Carver They arrived in the Mayflower Dec. 1620 ;
they had 4 Sons & 6 dan'trs from whom are descended a numerous posterity
"1672 Feb'y 23th John Howland of Plymouth deceased, he lived to the age
of 80 yr's. He was the last man that was left of those that came over in
the Ship called the Mayflo- wer that lived in Plymouth ."--[Plymouth
Records.]
There is a painted sign bcard at the side of this gravestone containing
the following inscription:--
The grave of John Howland died Feb. 25, 1672 .
It has been frequently published that Mr. Howland married a daughter of
Governor Carver . This we think is a mistake. In Bradford's History we
find that John Howland married Elizabeth , the daughter of John Tillie .
Mr. Howland was a distinguished man, and devoted to the interests of the
Colony, both in relation to its civil and religious institutions. He was
Deputy and Assistant for several years. His early residence was on Summer
street, but afterwards removed to Rocky Nook , where he died. The remains
of his cellar are visible a short distance north of the residence of the
late Hezekiah Ripley .
The colonial records say, "He was a godly man and an ancient professor in
the ways of Christ, and proved a useful instrument of good in his place."
His descendants are quite numerous. The late Reverend John Howland of
Carver, Mass. , was grandson of Mr. Howland . He was the last man of them
that came over in the Mayflower, who settled in Plymouth . On the passage
to this country in the Mayflower the weather was tempestuous, and in a
severe storm Mr. Howland fell overboard and came near losing his life.
The following is a record of the accident in Bradford's own words.:--
"And in one of them as they thus lay at hull, in a mighty storme, a
lustie yonge man (called John Howland ) coming upon some occasion above
ye grattings, was, with a seele of ye shipe throwne into [ye] sea; but it
pleased God yt he caught hould of ye tope-saile halliards, which hunge
over board, & rane out at length; yet he held his hould (though he was
sundrie fadomes under water) till he was hald up by ye same rope to ye
brime of ye water, and then with a boat hooke & other means got into ye
shipe againe, & his life saved; and though he was something ill with it,
yet he lived many years after, and became a profitable member both in
church and comone wealthe."
