Daughter of Sylvanus and Annie Hall

Married Richard Alton Cowing on 5 October 1887 in Marion, MA (also registered in Northampton where he was a salesman). Richard died in 1921 in Northampton.

The Cowings moved to Northampton immediately after their marriage as Mr Cowing was a member of the firm of Hadley, Cowing and Drury. They lived on Paradise Road until Smith College bought their property. When they moved to Washington Avenue, the Cables on Dryads Green were abutters.

Hannah married George on 15 December 1923 by Rev Luke White at St Lukes Church, Montclair NJ, where his daughter, Louise Chard, lived. According to a front page article in the Daily Hampshire Gazette (Monday 17 December 1923), the marriage came as a surprise to their Northampton friends. Mrs. Cowing had left Northampton the previous week to join George & another daughter, Dorothea Hawes, on a trip to Florida.
The wedding announcements also appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, Biloxi Mississippi Daily Herald, and New Orleans Times Picayune.
