Looking for parents of Jesse Gannon married to Elizabeth Fields in Lawrence County. Jesse served in Civil War. I believe his parents may have been from Pike County, KY. Any information or links would be appreciated.

Brenda: I have some Gannon's in my family tree in Lawrence Co. Oh. They too came from the Pike Co. Ky area. There is also supposed to be a "Gannon Cemetery in Perry Twp. someplace I believe. My "ROWE" web site is listed below.

Yes, James you are correct. The Gannon family cemetery is located in Perry Township, I was there this past spring. It was overgrown but the markers were in pretty good shape. Are there Rowe's buried in that plot? During that visit we also saw the cabin that Jesse Gannon had built for his family after he returned from the civil war. Quite a remarkable feat considering he lost an arm in the war! We are getting a sizable data base of Gannon relatives, please email me so we can chat. I also have a connection to Worleys. Hope to talk soon! bwilson9@columbus.rr.com

I am curious, even though none of the "individual" names sound familiar, (haven't gone back that far yet). The fact that you mention MOORE'S from VA and a WORLEY.... Do you show an A.B. Moore marrying an Ann WORLEY and residing in AR?

I am a bit stumped at this point, with varying information from elderly relatives to my husband (his line), but the concensus is that the family came from KY, previously from VA. If those two people show up in your line(s), please let me know, I'd love to get over this little hump. Other names are: Lafayette (Fate) Moore, and A.B. (Abraham Bingham), William Carlee.... Look forward to possibly matching info.

Yes, there is a John Robert Rowe buried there with his first wife, Olive Williams. John's grave doesn't have a marker, but my father (John's son) told me where it was. I am not sure of the connection between Olive and Rachel Gannon. Would love to exchange info.
