Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 2, 1783
Death: Nov. 18, 1869

Hanna's parents emigrated to US from Wales. Hanna was born on the boat enroute. She became a Dr. of medicine with a wide practice, covering her area on horseback and would at times be gone several days. At the time of her death she was 86y9m16d.


Ref: Hannah's father, John John*, is listed on the Mason County tax records on 29 July 1796 as owning 140 acres of land on the North Fork Creek watercourse, entered by T. Marshall. The family had one male plus 21 years of age, two males between 16 and 21 years of age; 2 horses and 11 cattle.

DAR records indicate that John John was born in Wales and among the first to enlist in the Revolutionary War from Pennsylvania. He served from the siege of Boston to the surrender of Cornwallis. He was detailed by Washington to run a grist mill at Valley Forge for the starving troops. He gave valuable service in the Indian warfare under Logan. John John died in Mason Co., (prob. now Lewis Co), KY in 1820.

Ref: John John b. Wales ca 1740, d. ca 1820, joined the Continental Army and was placed in charge of the grist mills at Valley Forge. John John served from the seige of Boston to Yorktown. When the Army was at Valley Forge, a grist mill was seized by Washington troops who detailed him to run it for the standing troops. He was with Logan in the Western Division, a target for the indians being the largest soldier in the Army.

Ref: Major John O. Brown Hanna John's parents emigrated to U. S. from Wales. Hanna was born on boat enroute. She became a Dr. of medicine with wide practice, covering her area on horseback and would at times be gone several days. She is buried in cemetery at Blue Ridge, IN. At the time of her death, she was 86 years, 9 months and 16 days. Inscription on gravestone reads: "Her long life was a lesson of constant devotion to her conviction of right". The gravesite of George Brown, Rev. War Veteran was in a very deplorable condition, he being buried in a pasture on his home place and gravesite being over run by stock. During the month of September 1961, I, personally, had this condition corrected. The headstones one placed by the Quartermaster General U. S. Army, another by D. A. R. Chapter reset, grave filled in and gravesite enclosed by a fence. On the wall, main entrance of the Rush County, Indiana Courthouse is a plaque bearing the name of George Brown, together with 23 other veterans of the Rev. War buried in Rush County.

Ref: Mason Co., KY cemetery records indicate that John John, Sergeant, b. ca 1740, Pembroke, Wales, d. 23 Dec. 1815, Mason Co., KY; Barbara Evans, John John's wife, was b. ca 1764, Carnarvon, Wales, d. ca 1836/8, Mason Co., KY, 87 yrs.
