Name Variation Paulina Maud Cannon is also known as Paulina Maud Canning.1 
Birth*She was born in 1873 in New Brunswick.2 
She was the daughter of Otis Cannon Jr. and Almira Smith.1 
Alt-Birth DateAn alternate recorded birth date is circa February 1881 in New Horton, Albert County, New Brunswick, Canada; this birth date is probably incorrect due to a typo in her obituary. There was a Maud, age 8 years, in the 1881 census.1 
Death*Paulina Maud Cannon died on 13 November 1881, in New Horton, Albert County, New Brunswick, Canada;
Obituary: "Died New Horton (Albert Co.) 13th inst., of spinal disease, Paulina Maud Canning youngest daughter of Otis Canning and Almira Canning, age 9 mos." It is my feeling that there is a typo in the obituary, that it should have read 9 years, as there is a Maud, age 8 years, in the 1881 census.1
 
(Witness) Census HeadHouseholdShe was enumerated on the census of 1881 in the household of Otis Cannon Jr. in Harvey, Albert County, New Brunswick, Canada; included in the household with Otis (age 46) were his wife Elmira (age 48), their children Edgar (age 19), Avery (age 14), Ada (age 12), Minnie (age 10), Maud (age 8) and Cassie (age 17). Otis and Edgar were farmers. The family religion was Baptist.2
