Jan Cannam. she says she changed her name to Cannam to prevent it dying
out. I am pleased to be able to tell her that there are hundred or so
widely scattered in the west of north America. the story is that Jerimiah
Cannam appeared in Illinois in 1826 he had five sons who drifted west and
north . It is a very rare name here.
