Mary Ann's parents were BARTHOLOMEW CANNON and Margaret Sweeney. Her siblings were John (m. Catherine Gannon), James (m. Anne Green), Daniel, Patsy, William, Thomas and Martin (m. Eliz. Hickey).

Emilie Bertha Schultz, was the daughter of GUSTUV SCHULTZ (with our without the "t"), and Wilhamina Kiestge (sp?) or Nitchke (sp?). Her siblings were Wilhamina (m. John Rahn), Albert, and Martha. Gustuv (1881-1936) and his wife came from Germany.
