Hannah Ingledew Janney
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 9, 1725
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Feb. 23, 1818
Loudoun County
Virginia, USA

Daughter of Blackstone and Margaret Pattison Ingledew. At 16 years of age, she married Jacob Janney, son of Joseph and Rebecca Biles Janney on March 20, 1742, Falls Meeting, PA.
They moved to Goose Creek (now Lincoln), VA, in 1743. Hannah found a place to worship in the forest, sitting alone on a log for an hour each First Day, thus founding the Goose Creek Meeting. As more Quakers settled in the area, meetings for worship were held in homes until a log meeting house was built in 1750.
