The only information known of the parents of John Cannon, Daguerreotypist & Glass Cutter of Cambridge, MA is that according to his death record in Cambridge, MA, he was born Nov 26, 1809 [Calculated date] in New York, son of Michael Cannon & Ann, presumably of New York at some point (NEHGS). Further it states he was 53y10m10d; married; Consumption; Glass Cutter; No birthplaces listed for parents; buried in Cambridge Cemetery.
We cannot say at this point if the parents listed are accurate. We also cannot say if they are accurate, specifically who this Michael & Ann Cannon are. Below is simply a collection of notes to consider in the search.
o Ann 56 a1794 B: Ireland
o Thomas 16 a1834 B: Ireland Irone cutter?
o Matthew 14 a1836 B: Ireland
There are others in NC & IL
Additional Hints – if we consider the possibility that the parents noted on his death record are incorrect…….
