John Rawlins Dann and Elizabeth Moore were married June 11 1871. Their children include Alfred, Bert, Nida, Margery, Ray and Viola.
John R & Elizabeth (Moore) Dann family: Alfred is on the right back, John R and Elizabeth sitting, I don't know the identities of the other young people but their children were Bert, Margery, Ray, Nida, Viola and Alfred.
Margery Anne Anderson was born in 1822. She married James Bell Moore and was the Mother of Louise, Anna Marie and Elizabeth Moore as well as four brothers. I am familiar with the girls because I know second cousins of their descendants. The first two married Beamish brothers John and Edward, and Elizabeth married John Rawlins Dann. All were believed to be from London Township, Middlesex Co., Ontario, Canada. They immigrated to Shiawasse County Michigan together in a sleigh, then traded their sleigh for a wagon when the snow was gone.

Marsha Adams Poor thing! Where we used to live, before we moved there about 1950, a little girl drowned in the cow's watering trough. :(
