Other? Notes

The Anno family(s) moved to Kentucky prior to 1797. Ebenezer Zane requested permission and was authorized by Congress in 1796 to open a 'road' accross the Ohio country from Wheeling to a point on the Ohio River opposite Limestone, Kentucky. Thus, Zane's trace was blazed through the wilderness during the summers of 1796 and 1797. This provided a trail between Virginia and Pennsylvania with Kentucky. This may have been the route the Anno's used to reach Kentucky.

John Anno was one of the five Annos married in Mason County, Kentucky between 1795 and 1803. John Anno was most likely born in Maryland,and his parents were probably Joseph and Esther Anno. However, I have found no records to confirm these facts. The first record of John Anno is his marriage to Hannah Arrowsmith on December 27, 1796 in Mason County, Kentucky. Hannah was the daughter of Samual Arrowsmith and Mary Millard. Henry Anno, most likely John's brother, married Elizabeth Arrowsmith sister to Hannah. If John was at least 20 years of age he was born before 1776. John Anno was a farmer all of his life, and he was among the early pioneers of Kentucky and Ohio. He and his family moved from Mason County, Kentucky to Ross County, Ohio and finally Wyandot County, Ohio. In the late 1790's, SamuelArrowsmith, John's father-in-law, and Henry Anno moved from Kentucky to Pickaway Plains East of the Scioto River.

The Arrowsmith-Kenton Family Record states that Samuel Arrowsmith moved from Mason County to Ohio about 1798, and to Ross County about1801.

The Scioto river was used to move north into Ross County, Ohio from the Ohio river. This was one of the main trails north into Ohio. Henry Anno and John Anno are listed on the Ross CO., Ohio tax lists for 1807 to 1818.

A list of letters left at the Cillicothe, Ohio post office in April1806 includes a John Anno.

The 1820 US census for Green Township, Ross County, Ohio list a Henry Anno (4 family members) and John Anno (6 family members).

The 1830 US census for Ohio lists both Henry and John as living in the same place. There are two people living in the Henry Anno household and four people living in John Anno household. The 1830 US Census also lists a Thomas Anno with a household of four people. Among the early settlers of Green Township, Ross County, Ohio was Samuel Little who came about 1800 and settled on section 35. John Anno settle on the southwest corner of section 27, about 1810, and improved a lot, which he later sold, and with family moved North. (Clermont Co., Ohio) Henry Anno settled next north of John Anno, where he made a clearing, which afterwards he sold, and with family moved to Illinois about 1840. Samual Arrowsmith joined Henry Anno on the east. He remained on the properity until 1840 when he sold and moved to Illinois. John Ritter settled at the same time in the same section. John stayed on the farm until his death. His son Richard bought the land, and he also died there.

The obituary of Elisabeth (Arrowsmith) Anno wife of Henry Anno was published in the Western Christian Advocate on December 31, 1847. The article states that Elizabeth moved to Kentucky with her parents in1788, to Ohio with her husband in 1798, and to Illinois in 1835. There is a strong probability that John Anno and family also moved to Ohio in 1798. By 1804 the Annos were living in Ross County, Ohio. The Scioto River runs from the Ohio river through Ross County, Ohio. GreenTownship where they lived is close to Chillicothe. Both John and Henry Anno are listed in the 1807 tax list for Green Township, Ross County, Ohio. John Anno and family may have lived elsewhere in Ohio from 1798 to 1804. It is approximately 70 miles from Mason County, Kentucky to Ross County, Ohio. John Anno of Ross County purchased 85 acres of land in section 27 of Green Township from Samuel Arrowsmith of Champaign County, Ohio on April 11, 1810 for $200. On the same date, ...

Please verify all records. I have made mistakes and there is no doubt more mistakes will be made in the future. A very large part of this file is taken from others and hopefully credit has been given to them. If you find that is not the case please infor
