Mr. Hannah died 23 years ago. Since then Mrs. Hannah was made her home with her children most of the time at the home of her son, Will Hannah, on south Hewett Street.
Mrs. Hannah was a lady of keen intelligence, active in mind and body and took an interest in the affairs of the world even in her later age. She was a woman of the primitive virtues, developed by the experiences of pioneer life. She was long connected with the Presbyterian church.
