Arabella Hunter Cann

Founders Cemetery, Marker #16

(1845 – 1846)

We do not know very much about Arabella, and would invite anyone with information to contact us about her (or any other resident in the cemeteries) by leaving a comment below.
Arabella was exactly one year old when she died in Beaver River on her first birthday, 20 September 1846. She is the daughter of Harvey Cann, who is buried in the Free Will Baptist cemetery, and Susannah Killam. Her brother Isaac is also buried there.

More information about Arabella and her family may be found in the Old Stones Family Group Sheet Index.

Arabella is a William Knowlton descendant, and we provide here her ahnantafel,which would also be her father’s ancestor’s list – except in this case there is also the information from the Killam line via Arabella’s mother.

[1] An ahnentafel (ancestor table) is a family tree without a chart. #1 is the source person, #2 is that person’s father, whose father is #4. To follow the father’s direct paternal ancestry double the number each time to #8, 16, 32 etc. The mother of the source person is #3 (the wife is always one number higher than the husband) whose father is #6, whose father is #12, again doubling in the same way as the father’s generations. #7 will be the source person’s her maternal grandmother whose father will be #14, whose father will be #28 and so on. With the exception of the source person, even numbers are male and uneven numbers are female. Uneven numbers usually introduce a new surname into the family tree.
