A line connects Meda to Elmer.

3a.  1920 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Elmer, and I really looked.  My guess is he's a widower, otherwise we wouldn't find his daughter living with his parents (see next source).

Elmer had no sister, Edna, so there's no obvious (or apparent) connection here between our subject and the CANNONs.  Winifred appears to be Elmer's daughter, but if so, Elmer must have married again and been widowed a second time.
