Bartholomew M. Cannon

Birth: Mar. 10, 1845
Sussex County
Delaware, USA
Death: Feb. 24, 1924
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA

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.
