The Official Sylvester Q. Cannon & Winnifred Irene Saville
Family History Collection

Syvester Q. Cannon

This is the Official Sylvester Q. and Winnifred S. Cannon family website. The collection of photos, documents, video and audio clips available here represent undoubtedly the most comprehensive collection of their family history in existence.

We express our deepest appreciation to all the family members who made the effort to look for that old box of photos, letters, etc. that was probably stashed in a closet or basement somewhere and so willingly shared what they found to make this collection available for all to enjoy.

Please consider sharing copies of family history treasures you may have.
