Oconee County, South Carolina
One of our oldest and most respected citizens, Mr. John R. M. Cannon, died on Tuesday morning last, 20th instant, aged seventy seven years. Mr. Cannon had been a great sufferer for years from disease, (weakness of the lungs) which in the end proved incurable. He leaves a large family and many friends to mourn their irreparable loss.
Thank you to E. Holmes for finding this obit.
