CANNON & RELATED FAMILY

BURIAL RECORDS

Ascension Parish, Louisiana

Note!  This is not comprehensive!  This is just what I could find!!!

***NOTE: Not all of these Cannons descend from Lorence and Judith Canon of Galway, Ireland (my line). There is another Cannon family in and near Ascension Parish, with related surnames ARCENAUX, SLOTTER/SLAUGHTER, CROSSAN/CROSSEN and some of their CANNON family members are listed here, for the sake of making the information available. It is unknown whether or not there is some tie between these two Cannon families, perhaps back in Ireland. Martin Ansil Cannon, Sr. may have migrated to Ascension Parish because the other Cannon family was long established in the area (see St. Joseph's Church records, Baton Rouge Diocese), but this is pure speculation.

Note:  THOMAS NICOLAS CANNON, son of Martin M. Cannon & Eliska Melancon is buried in Garden of Memory Cemetery (in Norco, Louisiana?)

 

I have been unable to locate the burial site of SARAH CANNON, daughter of Martin M. Cannon & Eliska Melancon, though her husband (Paul Petite) and son (Algae) are buried together at New River Baptist Cemetery, in St. Amant, Louisiana.


These burial listings are those collected by family members and cross-referenced with the book, Cemeteries of East Ascension Parish, Louisiana and with Baton Rouge Diocese records. Additionally, information about the individuals was graciously provided by family members, including Erna Mae Cannon Streetman and Brenda Cannon Quave.
