    3. Hello folks, and welcome back to RootsWeb's newly upgraded list system. If you are receiving this post it is because you are still a subscriber to this list, even though things have been pretty quiet due to a number of issues lately. The lists are back now, and I believe you will like the improvements that have been made. The most obvious improvement is a new RootsWeb login system, which you will find at the following link: http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/setupmail Only one account per person is needed, and once you have created it you will be able to organize and manage all of your list subscriptions in one handy location. Like anything new there will be something of a learning curve in the beginning, but I really think you will like it for the new security and personalization features for your list subscriptions. And last but not least, please note my email address as List Owner immediately below this message and following my name. Also note the "List information" link below that, which will take you to the information page for this list, where you will find information to help you subscribe, unsubscribe, and some other things based on the current status of your new log in account. I welcome you back to the list, and look forward to working with you in the future tracking down our elusive ancestors. David E. Cann cann-owner@rootsweb.com List Owner of the Cann mailing list on RootsWeb List information: https://lists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/postorius/lists/cann.rootsweb.com/

Author: cutler30815 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.cann/468.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: This one is a stumper! I've done a lot Cann family research in South Carolina ( my grandmother is a Cann ) and just a small possibility since this William Cann was born about 1857 in Alabama which tells me that he comes through Duncan Cann since I do know he lived in Alabama and some of his children moved West to Texas, Oklahoma & Arkansas. That 1880 census shows Williams parents were born in South Carolina and the mother is Mary. At the moment, I'm thinking but not 100% William's are William F. Cann 1827-1900 & Mary Jane Simmons both buried at the Akers Cemetery, Callisburg, Cooke County, Texas and yes both were born in South Carolina. William F Cann's parents is Duncan Cann and his father is Obediah Cann and Isabelle Campbell. I come through Duncan's brother, Obediah L. Cann Sr. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

Between the date I posted question and your answer, I found all of that info. Ebemezer Cann amd Sarah Martha M. Nelson were married in 1861 and had one son, John William Cann. She then married my Great grandfather, Richard Johnathan Whitten in Arkansas in 1872. The famly story was John William was named after his father and I searched for years for that name until I found a little book in the Clayton Library in Houston that contained the marriage date for Ebenezer Cann and Sarah Martha Nelson. That just shows you should not believe family stories.until you have proof. LOL Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

    1. [Cann] FROM THE ADMIN: Digest subscribers please note
    2. David E. Cann
    3. Please DO NOT reply to this on the list I'm the Admin of this list, and I would like to ask for your help if I may. This pertains to digest subscribers ONLY, so folks subscribed in list mode please completely disregard it. The current default format on this list for digest posts is called "MIME," which means you will receive each digest as a single post usually once a day with each individual post for that day appearing as an attachment. This is the one exception to what you may have heard about no attachments on RW lists, but these are quite safe to open. To read or reply to one of the attached posts, you simply double-click it to open it, after which you can reply to it if you choose to. Generally, replying to it will require little or no editing or trimming as was needed with previous digests here. I have recently become aware that reportedly A FEW service providers do not receive this type of digests very well, although the large majority of them do. If you are not able to double-click on an attachment and read it properly, then it is possible that your service provider may be one of the very few unable to receive and deliver them correctly. If so, please drop me a line OFF LIST AT MY ADMIN ADDRESS BELOW, and I will return your subscription to what is called "plain text" format as before. Likewise, if you are able to use these digests without difficulty but simply prefer the plain text format used before, then drop me a line OFF LIST using the same address below and ask me to return your digest to "plain text" format. If you are having no difficulty reading or using the current digests this way, then there is no need to reply or let me know. I try very hard to reply to all correspondence from subscribers, but sometimes replying to everyone is simply not always feasible. David E. Cann List Admin cann-admin@rootsweb.com
