My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wyoming, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Wealthy M. Hanna

Wealthy M. Hanna, widow of John F. Hanna, formerly of Momence, Ill.,
but who has for the last three years resided with her sons, Herbert and Henry
Hanna, one mile east of Moscow, died early Tuesday morning, Oct., 6th.,
from decease of the heart and old age.

Deceased has been in poor health for about two years, but was not confined
to her bed until recently.

Mrs. Hanna, whose maiden name was Scramlin, was born on Aug. 13,
1833, in Canada. When but four years old she moved with her parents to
Battle Creek, Mich. In 1850 they moved to Kankakee Co., Ill., and settled upon a homestead near which now is the city of Momence.

In 1853 she was united in marriage to John F. Hanna, to which union was born six children Namely: Cother F., Henry S., Arther Eugene, Herbert E., Grant G., and Franklin A. Hanna, of whom but three survive her, Henry, Herbert and Frank Hanna of Moscow.

As a wife, she was ever kind and considerate, and a most devoted mother, always sacrificing for her loved ones.

She was self-denying, kind and patient which qualities attracted many friends, all, who knew her, will remember her bright smiling face.

She passed away with the light of love shining on her face, which showed she was at rest with God, her Maker.

The funeral services were held at the home of her son, Herbert E. Hanna one mile east of Moscow on Thursday Oct., 8th, at 10 o'clock and were conducted by the Rev. Koontz of the Methodist church. The remains were laid to rest in the Moscow cemetery.
