John Milton Cannon
This website is dedicated to the
family of John Milton Cannon and Ellender Malinda Rich Cannon of
Gordon County, Georgia.
Some of their letters from the U. S. Civil War era have been preserved, and these letters give this family's views of those troubled times. There are also letters involving other members of this extended family, including the Rich and Powell families. In addition to family members, there are mentions of friends, business associates, and military men.
The original letters were photocopied about 1970, and these copies have been scanned for display on this website. The letters have been transcribed with the original spellings and grammar, and "translated" versions have also been prepared for ease of reading. Some letters have explanatory footnotes. There are plans for more background information about the family, their ancestry, and the events of the times.
