Howard, I have not searched for Kanes at all. My connection is that Mary and Eva, daughters of David Kane, married John Appleton Brewer. Had no knowledge of Ann Kane prior to your email. Sorry that I am no help. Good luck Davis Brewer

   Subject: KANE FAMILY
   I am a descendant of  Ann Kane, born 29 May 1815 in New Jersey.  She married John Weydemeyer in abt 1832.
   Ann's brother was David Kane, born 5 Oct 1810 in NJ; died 15 Dec 1892, in Texas and was married to Sarah B. Voorhies, 6 Aug 1836.
   I have been unable to find the mother and father of David and Ann.  Have either of you had any luck with this?
