The fourth of ten children born to Angus Munn Cannon and Ann Mousley Cannon, Lewis Mousley Cannon was born in St. George, Utah, on April 1, 1866. Following his father--s release from mission leadership in St. George, the family moved to Salt Lake County. After attending the University of Deseret, Lewis attended Brigham Young Academy in 1886. He later served an LDS mission to Europe, proselytizing in England, Germany, Switzerland, and Bohemia. Following his mission, Lewis married Mary Alice Hoagland on October 1, 1890, in Logan, Utah. He also married Lillian Hamlin and Annie Nielsen. Lewis was the father of many children, at least seven with Mary and at least one with Lillian. Lewis was a successful businessman, working both for the Salt Lake County government and for Zion--s Savings Bank and Trust Company. Additionally, he began his own business and real estate ventures in Salt Lake City. During this time, he also served as the first bishop of the Cannon Ward, which was organized by his uncle, prominent church leader George Q. Cannon. After a long illness, Lewis passed away on June 7, 1924, in Salt Lake City, Utah. The majority of his children were present when he died, though he preceded his wives in death. ; Series I: --œMission Journal, 1889,-- includes one (1) bound journal, 1889; 6 Â½ x 8 Â½ inches; 179 pages. The Lewis M. Cannon Mission Journal covers March 8, 1889 -- October 20, 1889, the final months of Cannon--s mission. Although much of the journal describes his activities in Hamburg and Berlin, Lewis traveled frequently around Germany and Bohemia during this time, proselytizing in more than 22 cities. The journal concludes with his sea journey through England and Ireland en route to the United States aboard the ship Nevada. The title page to the Lewis M. Cannon Journal states that the Journal begins on March 8, 1889 and concludes on March 16, 1890. The first date is correct; Cannon does begin his Journal on March 8, 1889. The second date, however, is not accurate; Cannon--s last entry is dated October 20, 1889.
