Coming from so many distinguished ancestors,
Genealogy was a natural attraction for Julie
One purpose of this web site is to create a place where Julie can post her genealogy research. She has worked for many years on the line of her great-grandmother, Martha Telle Cannon, who married George Q. Cannon (holding the flowers above). In doing this research, Julie has also worked on many collateral families, finding and writing histories of some of these people. These works are also posted below.

Biography of Martha Telle Cannon 1846-1928
by Julie C Markham
This biography was completed and posted in November 2020.
Using letters, photos, news articles and personal histories, I have written a biography of my grandfather, Collins Telle Cannon. I have researched the farm where he spent his youth. I have turned up a previously unknown occupation in mining. I have used his own letters and photos to open a window on his European mission between 1910-1913, and I've researched his family members and his adult life. I have had such a great experience with this biography, and I sincerely hope family members will enjoy this.

I have transcribed the missionary journal of my grandfather, Thomas William Innes, who served in Ireland between 1906-1908. As I worked through this journal, I added pictures and some commentary. I loved working on this journal, and I wish our lives had overlapped.

Below is the link to my biography of the Driver families. The research was complicated and lengthy, taking me over a year to complete. If you are interested in the endnotes, which I used to keep track of my research and to add information outside the biography, I recommend you open two browser windows so you can read the endnotes concurrently. This was a difficult biography to compile because of all the pictures. If you see typos or problems, please email me at juliemarkhamfamilyhistory at gmail.com.
