married my 2nd Great Grandmother Emily Almira Messenger Horner Hanna who was the widow of Robert Horner and she had one son with Robert Horner, whose name is Robert Messenger Horner, my great grandfather.
Here is his obituary in the Epworth paper: DEATH CLAIMED HIM Epworth Loses one of its Most Respected Citizens Alexander F. Hanna departed this life early Friday morning, July 13, 1900. He was born in Trumbull co., Ohio, in 1824 and was married in 1858. He has been a resident of Epworth about nineteen years, and a devoted member of the M. E. church for twenty-five or thirty years. His wife, three sons and one daughter survive him. His death was the result of a valvular lesion of the heart. He was confined to the house only three or four weeks, was not confined to his bed at all, and walked about the house the morning of his death which, though sudden, was expected at any time. The funeral services conducted by his paster were held in the M.E. church Saturday, July 14, at 2 o'clock P.M.
