[Click on photos at right for larger images.] Harry was the husband of Agnes Stansbury Cann. Harry founded the Harry P. Cann & Bros. Co. which was located in downtown Baltimore on W. Redwood St. (and later, 25th. Street) for many years, dealing in wholesale sales of toys and other items. One of the things they sold were linen postcards of various local area sites and vacation spots. When I visited my Aunt Agnes with my parents years ago, she lived in a big duplex home in the Roland Park section of Baltimore, on the west side of Roland Ave. a few homes north of the intersection of Roland Ave. and Cold Spring Lane. I would have to presume that this was the family home. To the best of my knowledge, they had four children, Charles Stansbury Cann, Alice Virginia Cann, Ethel Cann, and Mary Cann Moore. Harry and Samuel's sister, Emily Cann, never married, and worked at the family business for her entire career. I have since learned from daughter Ethel that Harry passed away from a condition known as progressive bulbar palsy, and even today, according to Wikipedia, the prognosis is poor for those who have this disorder. For more details, see Samuel Cann's FindaGrave entry from this same cemetery.
