1869 Jun. 17 Thursday Vol. I 1866-1872 Terrell Co. News. Wheareas, our venerable and esteemed
father and brother Joshua Cannon, long a true and faithful member of the M.E. Church, and a
zealous Mason, has fallen in our midst, and now lies in the cold embrace of relentless death, it
becomes our duty and privilege, as his surviving brethren, to give expression of our appreciation of
his many virtues, and to our feeling some of the great and imparable losses, which the church,
fraternity, and community have sustained. (Terrell County, Nespaper Clippings pg. 141-2)
