Bartholomew M. Cannon and his son Isaac Thomas Cannon are my great great grandfather and great grandfather on my dad's side. One Sussex Cannon suggested the M. as a middle initial is for Manlove but that has not been confirmed.
Bartholomew was married to Margaret A. Cannon of a second Cannon line. The Panic of 1893 hit the whole U.S. and B.M. Cannon moved his family to Philadelphia and started a butter and eggs business that existed in Philly under the name of B.M. Cannon & Son. It had several locations inclding on Front Street in Philly in a warehouse building.
Bartholomew later died and desired to be buried in Seaford and his grave stone is a taller vertical rectangle about 4-5 feet high in a burial plot that once had metal bars cording off the burial plot. Looking at the photo of the cemetery shown on this page, the burial plot I believe was in the front right as you look into the cemetery.
His son Isaac Thomas Cannon later took over the business. Died ? and was cremated. Edwin Noble Cannon was one of Isaac's sons b. 1898 and d. 1983 (cremated) both in Philly, and had a son Thomas Cannon (given name from Isaac's middle name), and my dad was b. 1926 Philly and d. 2004 in OH (buried in Western Reserve Cemetery as a veteran). I am Thomas Cannon Jr., b. in Philly in 1954 and presently living in Riverview, FL.
