*CANNON OVERVIEW

Cannon Cemetery
Lincoln County,
Tennessee

This cemetery could no longer be found. Records show it was located by an old wagon road,which is no longer visible, running back in the hollow, and along a wet weather stream. Land work over many years has removed whatever evidence of burials may have existed. Long time residents of the area do not recall the cemetery. Two areas where the burials may have occurred are shown. The first area, shown with a barn in the background, is the most likely. The second area was identified by internet GPS info. It is typical of most areas on the farm which are too rocky to have served as likely burial locations. Graves of most of the Cannon children have been located in other various locations.
Some internet records show this as the Conner Cemetery. No records of Conners living in this area have been found. One census record is not clear and was apparently interpreted as Conner and is apparently the source of the mistake.
