In your email of 5 Mar 2002 you indicated that there were stories that the name was originally Hanna not Hannan. I would doubt that you would get verification. From the information I have gathered James Hannan (b1785) who married Lucretia Packard came from Montgomery county in 1810 with Lovejoy Cady. He was the son of James Hanna and Rachel Rambough. He was born in Florida of Montgomery County 1 Jun 1785. James Hanna and Rachael Rambough had James baptised by Rev. James Dempster 2 Jul 1786. They also had another son, William baptised by Dempster. I believe that Rachael died and James married her sister Susanna Rambough. If one looks in the 1790 census for Montgomery County there no Hannans but three Hannas. Early in the development of this country, particularly at census time, names were changed or misunderstood and written as the federal marshall unterstood it to be. Jacob Hannan and David Cady, Jr. originally owned the land where James Hannan and Lucretia Packard did their farming. In 1818 Jacob Hannan and his wife Lucretia Ellis sold their interest in the land to James Hannan. That fact is one of reasons that I believe that the James and Jacob are related. Also Jacob in the naming of his ten children uses the male names of William, Alexander, and James, all found as Hanna in the 1790 census of Florida in Montgomery County. I would appreciate hearing of any family stories or seeing any of the family obits.
