Cannon Cemetery, Indian Camp Creek Park

Inside Indian Camp Creek Park, part of the St. Charles County parks system, is the Cannon Family Cemetery.

Secured from the public now with a tall fence, it has numerous graves of the Cannon family, who first settled 180 acres that make up part of the park in 1811.

I was particularly intrigued by the fence which had been swallowed up by a tree that obviously is quite old.

It pops out the other side, as well.

    The Sitton intermarried and came with the Gibson family in 1810. A lot of their family history spills into the Warren and Lincoln County history. Big in the War of 1812.
