The Hanson Family

Submitted on 25 February 2009 by Freda Hanson Sago

This photo shows Abraham Hanson, his wife Margaret Smalley and her sister, Elizabeth Smalley Hanson, widow of Isaac Hanson who was a brother to Abram.  The children are children of Abraham & Margaret and Issaac & Elizabeth.  The small boy standing beside Margaret is Joe Rawlings whom the Hansons raised as a small boy.  My grandfataher was John Hanson, second boy on back row.  He married Virginia Sitton.

Abraham (1827-1878) and his brother, Isaac (1833-1861), married sisters, Margaret (1824-1880) and Elizabeth Smalley (1833-1921) in England.  Abraham & Margaret started their family in England, then set sail for the United States along with his brother Isaac and his wife on March 22, 1853.  It took them six weeks to sail across the Atlantic Ocean in a sail boat (City of Glascow) to reach America.  Port of entry was Philadelphia, PA.
Both brothers, with their families lived jointly during the time of the Civil War on what is known as the Clonts farm in Crawford County.  They are buried in the Gibbs Cemetery, Crawford County.
