William & Nancy Withroe CANNING Family
This is the father and mother of Civil War veteran William Canning who came from Burwick, Maine to volunteer for the Wisconsin Brigade, returned to marry and establish a family in Adams, Wisconsin with his wife Mary Etta, moved to Nebraska, and later homesteaded NE of Guthrie after the Land Run of 1889. William's parents are William Canning (b.1793) and Nancy Withroe Canning (b.1792) who moved from Canada to Burwick, Maine. In addition to being the parents of William Canning who made the Land Run with his wife Mary Etta Swartout Canning and ten children, the elder William and Nancy also had three other children, one who was James Canning (b.March 1842) who after a questionable killing in Logan County, Oklahoma moved to Iowa, married Diadamia Wheeler in Utah and moved to Mexico under a new identity James Harlow Carlton. The marriage produced 10 children in Mexico under the name of Carlton, never to use the Canning name again.
My appreciation again to Don Conant for this tidbit of Canning and Logan County history which he has compiled from our family historian, Aunt Della Canning who maintained written and photographic records on the family until her death in 1977.
