      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 his 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 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 fifieth 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. (I don't know to whom "others" refers to. This
      ends the History of the Cannon Family by an unknown author.)
