Descendants of Silas Daily

Generation No. 4

7. ELNORA4 GANNON (ELLINORE3 DAILEY, SILAS2, SILAS1 DAILY) was born April 23, 1859 in Jennings Co., Ind., and died July 01, 1921 in Palestine, Ill.. She married JESSE P. CRAVENS January 30, 1880 in Crawford Co. Ill., son of JESSE CRAVENS and SCENA FUNK. He was born Abt. 1860 in Crawford Co. Ill., and died Aft. 1887 in unk.

Notes for E
LNORA GANNON:
She is buried fairly close to the road on the right side as you come into the graveyard. On my first trip looking for these graves my Mom (Betty Fasnacht DeVore) said that my Grandmother (Goldie Swanner DeVore) had always said that we had 'kin' buried in that area. I went looking, begrudgingly, and found almost the whole Gannon, Cravens and Dailey family. Even Andrew Winters and his mother my ggg-grandma Margaret Elisabeth Ivey Winters and her brother John Ivy!!

Notes for J
ESSE P. CRAVENS:
Jesse is not with Elnora and the children in the 1900 Census, nor is his name on the same gravestone with Elnora. I have not yet found death cert. or estate papers for him and this is unusual for this line. Jesse and Elnora seperated for a period of time, shortly after their marriage. She publicly accused him of infidelity (in very explicit language) and published in the Robinson Argus that she was seeking a divorce, see notes under Elnora. Did they reconcile thereafter (Andrew Jackson and Lulu Belle claimed he was their father and they were born long after these events)? It is a mystery whether he died or was seperated or divorced from Elnora by 1900. In Lulu's obit in 1920 it is listed that her mother is still alive but doesn't mention Jesse.

Goldia B. Swanner DeVore knew Lulu's mother's name and Noah's parents names, (they would have been Goldia's husbands grandparents) but she didn't know Jesse's name.....more mysteries.....
