I do not know if this is your CANNON line or not, but places and dates indicate there is a possibility. Clarendon, Claremont and another county were combined in 1800 to form Sumter District in SC. In 1855, Clarendon County was re-established out of Sumter County. Gemima BROUGHTON CANNON had three brothers: Edward BROUGHTON that remained in SC (on Santee River right around the present day Sumter/Clarendon County line); John H. BROUGHTON that migrated to Greene County, GA 1800/1810; and Nathaniel BROUGHTON that migrated to Monroe County, AL in 1816/17 (the party of emigrants stopped in Greene County, GA in Dec. of 1816 to take on supplies). (They also had at least two sisters that remained in the Sumter/Clarendon area). Gemima married a Mr. RUNNELS before 1810 and had at least one child (a daughter) by him. I do not know if Gemima BROUGHTON CANNON RUNNELS migrated to Alabama with her brother, Nathaniel BROUGHTON, in 1816/17, but she is listed on the 1830 census of Monroe County, AL (there is no 1820 census available for this county). Records indicate that at least two of Gemima's children were in the wagon party of 1816/1817 that passed thru Greene County, GA on their way to Monroe County, AL. They were : Nathaniel CANNON and Sarah CANNON KEARLEY, wife of Josiah KEARLY. More of her children (David CANNON and Flora CANNON NETTLES, wife of Joseph M. NETTLES) were later verified to be in Monroe County in future records (records of 1830 and later). There are two CANNONs found on the 1820 census of Greene County, GA that I suspect to be sons of Gemima. They are Edward CANNON listed with a wife and male child under 5; and Joshua CANNON listed with a wife and no chilren. Edward CANNON died in Greene County, GA in 1827. Joshua CANNON was named Administrator of his Estate and John H. BROUGHTON was one of the ones that signed his Administration Bond. Greene County records indicate that the personal property was sold, but I have found no further record of the probate of this estate. I have not been able to ascertain what became of Edward CANNON's wife and child that was enumerated on the 1820 census or possible other children born between 1820 and 1827 (if any). I have been in touch with a descendent of Joshua CANNON and obtained a great deal of info on his wife and children. Joshua CANNON later moved in 1830s to Merriwether County, GA. I found this interesting since John H. BROUGHTON's eldest son, Edward BROUGHTON moved to the adjoining Troupe County about the same time. However, there appears to have been a lot of visiting between the relatives of Greene County, GA and Sumter County, SC since three of Edward BROUGHTON's childen of SC married three of John H. BROUGHTON's children of GA. One other note of interest. There is a John E. CANNON (born ca 1804 SC)that shows up on the Monroe County, AL census of 1850. All his older children are listed as being born in SC with his two younger children listed as being born in AL. The ages of these children indicate that he came to Alabama ca. 1847. While I have not verified it yet, I am led to believe that he was also a son of John and Gemima BROUGHTON CANNON that remained in SC. I am of the opinion that Gemima's children (like her siblings) were scattered between Sumter, SC, Greene County, GA and Monroe County, AL. I hope this information does not lead you down a blind path. If you find a connection to this CANNON family, please let me know since I am trying to gather info on the BROUGHTONs and their descendents. Good Luck!

While this area was beginning to be settled in 1800-1812, most of the settlement took place after Andrew Jackson defeated the Creek Indians at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in 1814. The Creek Indians were forced to give up their rights to most of the lands in Alabama. Andrew Jackson then went on to Mobile and New Orleans where he defeated the British in January of 1815. The biggest influx of people into the county was between 1816 and 1820. Alabama became a state in 1819 (Claiborne narrowly missed becoming the state Capitol).
Monroe County, AL is bounded on the East by Conecuh County. The main road to this area in the early 1800s was the “Federal Road” or “Old Stage Road” that ran from Augusta, GA to New Orleans, LA. This road makes up almost the entire boundary between Monroe and Conecuh. Burnt Corn was a major town on this road (part in Conecuh and part in Monroe).
Monroe County is bounded on the South by Baldwin and Escambia counties. Escambia was formed from Baldwin and Conecuh after the Civil War.
Monroe County is bounded on the West by Clarke County. The Alabama River constitutes a major portion of this boundary line. Claiborne, located on the Alabama River, was the largest and most important town in the county during the 1800s. The County government was located there until 1832, when it was moved to Monroeville (a more centrally located site). While Monroeville became the seat of the county government and court, Claiborne remained the seat of the other courts (Chancery, etc.). Note: Clarke County extends farther north than Monroe County and also borders Wilcox on the West.
Monroe County is bounded on the North by Wilcox County. Most of the early settlement was in the northern part of the county. The “Ridge” is the high ground between Flat and Limestone creeks (both located north of Monroeville) that flow east to west across the county to the Alabama River.
