  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Cana 
  reedy,  a  town  of  Galilee,  near  Capernaum.  Here  our  Lord  wrought 
  his  first  miracle,  the  turning  of  water  into  wine  (John  2:1-11; 
  4:46).  It  is  also  mentioned  as  the  birth-place  of  Nathanael 
  (21:2).  It  is  not  mentioned  in  the  Old  Testament.  It  has  been 
  identified  with  the  modern  Kana  el-Jelil,  also  called  Khurbet 
  Kana,  a  place  8  or  9  miles  north  of  Nazareth.  Others  have 
  identified  it  with  Kefr  Kenna,  which  lies  on  the  direct  road  to 
  the  Sea  of  Galilee,  about  5  miles  north-east  of  Nazareth,  and  12 
  in  a  direct  course  from  Tiberias.  It  is  called  "Cana  of 
  Galilee,"  to  distinguish  it  from  Cana  of  Asher  (Josh.  19:28). 
 
 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]:
