Hannah, daughter of Daniel and Barbara Wilkinson was born in Hamilton County, Ohio, August 31, 1855 and departed this life December 3, 1920, age 65 years, 3 months, and 2 days.
One the 31st day of July, 1873, she was united in marriage to John Harter to whom were born seven children, five of whom are living. Willie, son of one year and a daughter, Mrs. Leona Crabill, have preceded their mother to the better land. She was of a family of fourteen children, seven brothers and seven sisters. On this family there still remains the seven brothers. Thomas, Henry, Harrison, George, Amos, Lorenze, Norman, and Alva and one sister, Mrs. C. P. Durrah of Anderson.
When quite small she with her parents moved to Henry county, Indiana, where she has always made her home. After her marriage she with her husband moved to Stony Creek township, near Blountsville. From there they moved to Pairie township, near Mt. Summit. There she toiled with great energy, building a model home for her family. After living there for twenty-six years, where she spent the remainder of her life.
She with her husband united with the United Brethen Church under the pastorate of Rev. Anna Lawrence in the spring of 1898, at the Walnut hill church near their home. Soon afterwards they were baptized by Rev. Lawrence Thornburg. To this church she has always been loyal and was always ready at any time to aid in any way she could.
In the late years, health would not permit her to attend the church of Walnut Hill, so in the summer of 1920 she with her husband moved their membership to the U.B. Church at Messick where it was more convenient.
She was always interested in her own family, both children and grandchildren, and never was she more happy than when she was with them all together, nor did she ever tire of doing or giving on any occasion. Not only to her own immediate family but to brothers, sisters and neighbors she always lent a willing hand, dloing all with in her power at any bedsied to which she was called.
Her kind words and acts will long live in the lives of her children, Norman, Orville, Elmer, Claude and Mrs. Clara Rogers, all whome reside in Henry County.
Grandma was always a great favorite with the nine grandchildren. They all enjoyed a visit with her in her home, where she put forth a great effort to make them welcome. The smiling face which always greeted them at the door will be sadly missed by all.
Besides the children, grandchildren, brothers and sisters, a host of neighbors and friends, she leaves to mourn her departure a kind and loving husband, who was certainly true and faithful from early wedlock until death claimed his companion.
"Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me--
And may there be no moaning at the bar
When I put out to set.
Twilight and evening tells
And after that the dark--
And may there he no sadness of farewells.
When I embark."
