Carolina J. Hanson, (Caroline), is first noted in the 1860 census in the area of Flint Hill in northeast Talbot County, Georgia. At the time she was just 5 years old and living with her family there. Others in her family at the time were her father, John J. Cook 32, mother Emily Cook 25, and young siblings, Robert Cook 3 and Woodson Cook 1. The family owned the land and her father John was farming. He mother Emily (Grant) Cooke was said to be born in South Carolina, all others in Georgia.
In 1870, in spite of the earlier Civil War, the family was still in tact and farming in the same area. They had not lost their farm to the war. They had grown considerably by this time with the birth of three other children. Now the family consisted of Caroline, aged 16, her parents Jefferson 42, and Emily 38, Robert Cooke 12, Woodson Cooke 11, Louis Cooke 9, John Cooke 7, Ida Cooke 4 and Wilkinson Cooke 2. They also had a former slave black worker living with them on the farm, Simon Terry, aged 25.
Five years later in December of 1975, Caroline married Abner Hanson there in Talbot County, and their family life began.
