The Gann Family  

Gann Relationship
My Gann line of descent, down through my mother, Faye (Gann) Reynolds:
    Samuel  Adam  Thomas Sr  John "Jack"   Cornelius  Thomas  James Samuel "Sam"  George Allen   Hilda Faye Gann

Ganns in the American Revolution
Adam and his son, Thomas Sr, are recognized as Patriots of the American Revolution by both the Sons of the American Revolution and the Daughters of the American Revolution. Gann descendants interested in joining the SAR can reference my membership (NSSAR # 513383) if connecting up via my line of descent, or Paul Thurman Butler's membership (NSSAR # 121633), if connecting via his line of descent, which goes through a different son of Cornelius Gann (James Madison Gann, and his daughter, Missouri Alice (Gann) Thurman).

Oregon Gann Information
I have transcripted a large amount of Gann material from Oregon Vital Records, as well as Gann obituaries from Oregon newspapers. This is an older set of pages which I need to go through and re-organize at some point, but the information is correct. Please see The Gann Family in Oregon.

Social Security Death Benefits Index
I abstracted all of the Gann entries I could for those Ganns born before 1900. There are two versions of the information available, one sorted by birth date, and the other sorted by name.
