[Click on photos at right for larger images.] I always knew her as "Aunt Agnes." Wife of Harry Pennington Cann; mother of son Charles, and daughters Ethel and Alice. I know very little about her other than occasional visits to her large house on Roland Ave., in the Roland Park section of Baltimore, MD, when I was a boy. There is a vague recollection that I must have heard talk among adults that she was a strong supporter of the temperance movement, which would fit with my grandmother Sara Cann's sentiments along this line. In asking my mother about her, she recalled that Aunt Agnes would say that she and her husband Harry got along so famously that they never had an argument. She had a bunch of old 78rpm records piled up which I noticed during one visit, and, being interesting in music and recordings even then, I went to take a look at what she had. She saw me and immediately said "Don't touch those!" In old age, she entered a home for the elderly in Emmitsburg. When in the process of getting ready to move out of the family home, she insisted that many of her possessions be sold, so much of the contents of her house was sold at auction. She passed away on January 3rd. 1979.
