Hana Glover Bennett
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 18, 1873
Nagasaki, Japan
Death: Aug. 3, 1937
Incheon Metropolitan City, South Korea

Wife of member of the English Consular Service.

Born Awajiya Hana to Awajiya Tsuru and industrialist Thomas Blake Glover, with whom Tsuru lived. Hana's adopted older brother (who had gone away to the University of Pennsylvania to study) returned and registered himself in a new koseki as Guraba Tomisaburo (which, in Japanese, is the closest phonetic of Glover). He then, in 1895, adopted Hana (the biological daughter of HIS adoptive mother) which gave her a registered Japanese father, made her name now Guraba Hana, and paved the way for her to legitimately marry in Japanese society.

In 1897 she did marry, but to Walter George Bennett, changing her name to Hana Guraba Bennett. Bennett became the British Consul to Korea. Her final name change would come when Walter buried her under the name "Hana Glover Bennett".

Together they were the parents of Thomas E. Bennett.
