The Cannon County, Tennessee Genealogy Project

~ They Moved To...  ~

Many times a person or family that we are researching is found one year, and missing the next. In many cases, and for various different reasons many Cannon County folks decided to move on to different areas of the county to make a living. This page is a attempt to put together a listing of Cannon County natives who relocated prior to 1900, and where they went to. If you know of other Cannon County residents that moved on that are not included in this list and would like to add them to it, please send the information to us and we will be more than happy to include it.
