This blog is essentially no more. Though I have left posts here, in most cases just for the sake of genealogy, there will be no more updates. Those posts I chose to move can now be found between two of my other blogs:

Hannah was a wife and mother for a little over twenty years. During that time she had ten children. Though several of them went on to marry and have children of their own, it does not appear that Hannah was able to witness any of it.

I chose not to include any additional historical facts that might have impacted Hannah. This is because I get the feeling Hannah spent her days working her home, her farm, and her children. It seems Hannah was put on this earth to give life, whether that be in the literal form of giving birth to her children or taking on the important day-to-day job of raising them. Until her untimely death, that is.
