About Hannah Terry

Biographical Summary:

Hannah Terry was born October 08, 1785 in Goshen, Ulster, Orange, New York, and died October 04, 1877 in Rockville, Washington, Utah. She married Parshall Terry, March 16, 1802 in Palmyra, Wayne, New York, son of Parshall Terry and Amy Stevens. He was born September 30, 1778 in Fort Niagara, Ontario, New York36, and died October 08, 1861 in Terry Mound, Draper, Salt Lake, Utah. She was burred October 1877, Rockville Cemetery, Washington, Utah.

She was 10 years younger than Lucy Smith but their children overlapped in age and they knew each other after the Smith's moved to Palmyra. The Terry's moved to Canada around 1820 so were isolated from the early events of the Restoration in Palmyra. But knowing the Smiths, they were open and receptive to the missionaries when they came to Canada around 1838. By that time many of the children were grown and married, but many of these families joined the church and moved together to Illinois just as Nauvoo was being founded and the exodus from Missouri was underway. Hannah received her patriarchal blessing from Hyrum Smith. Eventually the families moved west from Nauvoo and settled in Southern Utah. Hannah passed away at Rockville Utah in 1877, just 4 days before she would have turned 92.
