bullet   FamilySearch ID: LTJ4-FP7.


bullet  General Notes:

She is the youngest child of Moses - named after her deceased sister. Her published marriage announcement names her as the daughter of Moses and Hanna Thurston of Hollis New Hampshire. At the time of her marriage, her listed residence was Haverhill, New Hampshire - where her sister Shuah was living. (Life Sketch FS LTJ4-FP7)


Hannah married John Wheeler after 21 Sep 1788.307 (John Wheeler was born 31 Oct 1768 in Charleston, Sullivan Co., NH 307 and died 12 May 1813 in Granville, Licking Co., OH 307.)

bullet  Marriage Notes:

She married John Wheeler not long after September 21, 1788 perhaps in Charlestown, Sullivan Co., New Hampshire 32 (He was born on October 31, 1768 in Charlestown, Sullivan Co., New Hampshire 32 and died on May 12, 1813 in Granville, Licking Co., Ohio 14. He is buried in the Old Colony Burial Ground, Granville, Licking Co., Ohio.)

It has usually been accepted that the Hannah Thurston who married John Wheeler was the daughter born in 1744 5. Yet that daughter died unmarried in 1758; not to mention that the age of the older Hannah would have made the scenario virtually impossible. This Hannah was probably the youngest child of her parents, named after her deceased older sister 32.

Hannah Thurston and John Wheeler filed intentions to wed in 1788 in Charlestown, New Hampshire, and Hannah was listed as a resident of Haverhill, New Hampshire (where her sister Shuah was then living). It is not known where the marriage actually occurred. They moved soon after to Littleton, New Hampshire, where they remained until about 1800, when they moved to Fletcher, Vermont. Between 1803-1810, they had moved to nearby Fairfield, Vermont. In about 1813, they moved to Granville, Ohio, where her husband and son John died soon after. Hannah appears to have been living in the household of her son Wilder in 1820. It is not known what happened to her after this date, and she is not buried next to her husband in the Old Colony Burial Ground in Granville. Hannah and her family are also supposed to have lived at Lake Memphremagog (which is in southern Quebec and northern Vermont) before moving to Ohio 5, yet no other sources seem to corroborated that. If that is true, they only lived there for a brief period of time (this would have been in or near the town of Newport, in Orleans County, Vermont, unless of course they went to Canada.) 307
