Coming to Onondaga Valley at the age of two with his parents, he later settled in Syracuse. He associated with his father and brother John in the drug business and later practiced dentistry in the office of Dr. Amos Westcott.

He was engaged in the manufacture of dentifrice and was known as a fire underwriter. He patented an improved dental chair and the tone sustaining pedal found in all first class pianos. He also made and copyrighted designed for the coinage of the country, but they have never been adapted.

He was a member of the Syracuse Musical Union and organist of the First Ward Presbyterian, of St. Pauls, of Plymouth and of the Fourth Presbyterian churches. He also acted as choirmaster and sometimes tenor soloist. He was a director of the Franklin Institute and twice president of the YMCA. He was also vice president of the New York State Banking Company.

He possessed architectural and mechanical gifts which helped enlarge the Plymouth Church twice without adding any land to the church.

He married Martha Anna Huntington of Owego, Tioga county in 1848 and they had two daughters and a son, Dr. Henry C. Hanchett of New York City. Mr. Hanchett had been a confirmed invalid for several years, but retained his mental faculties in full vigor to the very last. Interment will be in Oakwood.
