Ellen Jane (Jennie) Cannon, 1862-1930, and Mary Harietta (Mate) Cannon, 1867-1933, were daughters of Anastasia Murphy and Cornelius Cannon of Caledonia, Waupaca Co., Wisconsin. This tintype in a paper frame shows both girls with long hair, suggesting that that they were not yet “of age.” Jennie married Orin Homer McLaughlin in 1884 and Mate married William C. Heuer in 1886. Both women spent their lives in Wisconsin, Jennie in Rhinelander and Mate in Oshkosh.
