Etta Luella Gibbons Coe Williams remembered her mother as Hannah Maria, "pronounced like the wind Mariah" not the other way, as she was interviewed by her great-granddaughter. Hannah Maria Norton was the daughter of Benjamin Copley Norton and Mary Billings Norton of Suffield, Connecticut. A certified copy of her birth record obtained from the Registrar of Vital Statistics dated Mar. 6, 1974, Town of Suffield, gave her date of birth as Dec. 24, 1849. She married Phineas Lyman Gibbons of Granville, Massachusetts, and they had three children listed in the 1880 United States Census. They lived in Feeding Hills, a section of the Town of Agawam, Hampden County, Massachusetts, United States, when Etta was born. Later, they moved to a large house on Pochassic Street in Westfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts. When Etta was left a widow with four children, her parents helped out. She learned to appreciate traditional family values. Hannah Maria Norton Gibbons was left a widow for only two years after her husband died at their home on Jefferson Street, Westfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts. At that time three children survived with 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
