In 1784, John Waller, Edward Waller and George Lewis erected ablockhouse at the mouth of Limestone Creek. Daniel Boone lived thereduring the year of 1786 . This was the beginning of the Settlement ofLimestone. Limestone was established as a town by the VirginiaLegislature in 1787. The name was changed to Maysville about 1790.Limestone was the principle point where immigrants landed, and throughwhich merchandise and supplies passed to the Kentucky interior.

The earliest reference I located to the family name in the colonieswas a Mary Ano located in Maryland 1663 to 1697. The father of JosephAnno is unknown. His father would have been born circa 1730. OnFebruary 14, 1716 a John Anno married an Elizabeth Smith in Suffolk, Boston,Massachusetts. Joseph Anno married Rebecca Hart December 26, 1716also in Boston. Either of these two Anno's could be Joseph's fatheror grandfather. On reference (The History of Champaign, Ohio ) listsJoseph and Esther as living in Coventry Parrish, Worchester County,Maryland in 1767.They had five children listed; Henry born 1775,Elizabeth, Sarah, William, born April 1781 and John.

Another source liststhe name as Joseph Anno, SO Great A nnamessex, page 93. He had noland listed.

The will of Stephen Milcah was written 29 September 1788, and probated5 February 1789. The witnesses were Nancy Anno, Elizabeth Anno andCatherine Maddux. If these Anno's were atleast 18 years old, theirbirth dates would be before 1771.
