Descendants of Silas Daily

Generation No. 3

6. ELLINORE3 DAILEY (SILAS2, SILAS1 DAILY) was born March 22, 1833 in Dutch Co., New York, and died July 23, 1895 in Crawford Co. Ill.. She married HARRIS GANNON November 06, 1853 in Jennings Co., Indiana, son of THOMAS GANNON and MARY Ann RUNYON. He was born Abt. April 02, 1833 in Jennings Co., Ind., and died January 21, 1879 in Morea, Crawford Co., Ill..

Notes for E
Ellinore is buried just to the right as you first come into the Palestine cemetary, just a short distance past her daughter Elnora Cravens. Silas and Deborah Dailey are buried near the very back of the cemetary, next to Ellinore's husband, Harris Gannon. My great-aunt Pearl Fitts once told me that that area of the cemetary used to flood before a dike or something was built, so that's probably why Ellinore wasn't buried back there. Her gravestone proudly proclaims "Wife of Harris Gannon."
Silas is Ellinore's father but I have doubts about Deborah as Ellinore's mother, tho I beieve she is the mother of Ellinore's younger siblings. Their gravestones indicate: Deborah (wife of Silas) died Nov. 8, 1868-age 55 y, 9m, 13d (born abt Jan 1813) Silas Dailey- died April 15, 1892-age 82y, 8m (born abt August 1809)

Silas (Ellinore's father) and his brother Sylvester came to Jennings Co., IN after Ellinore was born. I had originally thought that the Gannon's and Dailey's met after they came to Indiana, but have since discovered that BOTH families were from New York, and almost PROOF POSITIVE Stueben Co. NY, in and around the small towns called Wayne, and Tyrone. Silas Dailey (grandfather to Ellinore) was living in Wayne in 1818 when he applied for his revolutionary pension and inTyrone when he died in 1841. His son Sylvester was living in Tyrone in 1835. In 1830 an Abraham Gannon was living in Wayne, and two Thomas Gannon's were living in Tyrone. Francis Runyan was there ans so, I believe, were his in-laws the Harris's's.  I have a lot more circumstantial proof, but you get the idea.

Harris' Gannons death cert. implies coming to Crawford Co. abt 1867, which fits with Harris and Ellinore, along with Ellinore's parents and siblings, 'disappearing' from Jennings Co about then. They almost certainly all came to Crawford Co, ILL together.

Elinorre was a fairly wealthy, at least very comfortable, woman at her time of herdeath in 1895. Her notes and accounts (people that owed her money) when she died were very extensive, and the value of her estate was estimated at $11,000. I would imagine that she had a business of some sort, begun after Harris died, but what? She owned lots ninety-one and ninety two in 'the original town now village of Palestine'. She willed the 'farm that I now reside on in the town of Montgomery' to her son Harlan., one hundred dollars to her daughter Mary Ann Peden, $6000. to her daughter Ella May (who predeceased Ellinore by one day), and to Orris, Mead S. and Elnora Cravens the remainder to be divided equally amongst them. A ??? Callahan was appointed by her as the executor. In October 1893 she added a codicil in which she requested if Harlan had no heirs that his part would go to Ella May. If Orris or his heirs (his whereabouts were unknown) didn't appear then Orris' share was to be divided betwwon Mead and Elnora.
