Birth: Feb. 8, 1816 Jefferson County Ohio, USA

Death: Aug. 14, 1902 Hebron Washington County Utah, USA

Born in Wayne, OH. Died in Hebron, UT. Wife of James William Huntsman. Hannah was teaching school at fifteen when she met and was courted by James William Huntsman. They were both living in LaGrange County, Indiana, a sparsely settled wilderness, and decided to go to White Pigeon, Michigan to find a preacher to marry them in the proper way.

The school was one room, built of tamarack poles at a cost of $50.00. She taught the three "R's" and boarded around with the families and received $8.00 per month salary.

Hannah possessed all the homemaking skills necessary to make a good home. When they lived in Tooele County, Utah they had a ranch that sold produce and dairy to travelers going to California. She carded, cleaned and spun the wool from their little flock of sheep. "She won a wide reputation for her "tastewell" pies, bisquits and the good ranch butter, as well as her homemade cheese."
