Lewis B. 1840- Lewis is last seen in 1870 living in Carson City Nevada. He is unmarried. No further information available at this time.

Susan born 1848. - no information available. We see Susan in the 1870 census living at home with parents. She does not appear after that. She may have died, though no record of her grave is available or she may have gotten married. This concludes our look at the Ganoung family. It is interesting to see that the Ganoungs are joined to our next family of interest through marriage. We turn our attention now to the Mekeel Family, also found in the Quaker cemetery in Jacksonville NY. Stay tuned.
