  • Notes 
    • Hannah was orphaned as an infant and raised by her uncle, Mr. Tyson, in Bridgeport, Ontario, Canada. She married John Wissler on December 22, 1835.

      They had eight children:
      Sarah Ann (1837-1837)
      Franklin H. (b. 1838)
      Jacob (b. 1841)
      Levi (b. 1843)
      Aaron (b. 1847)
      Hannah (b. 1852)
      Anna (1855-1856)
      Angeline (b. 1856)

      A year after the birth of their youngest, the family moved to Columbia Furnace, Virginia. During the Civil War they returned first to Canada and then to Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania, as they had been warned that they were not safe in Shenandoah County.

      After the war, however, the family once again made their home at Columbia Furnace. As a widow, Hannah continued to reside in the family home there with her daughter, Angeline. In winter 1888, however, the home burnt, and in the transition to a new residence, Hannah took cold. She died of complications not long after.

      Hannah was described as the kindest of women, of small stature and quiet, but a power in her own house.
