The Pike Family History book states that Hannah's married name was Ratliff. This appears to be an error.

Jesse Ratcliff, brother to Joel who married Hannah's sister Rachel, is said to have married a Hannah Adamson, 15 Jan 1830, Highland Co Ohio. Some databases online have placed this Hannah in Ohio as the daughter of Jonathan. Seems highly unlikely that a lady named Hannah Adamson would be married in two different states on such similar days, although they are seven months apart, but that seems to be the case they are attempting to make. Hannah's father Jonathan was living in Wayne Co IN as early as 1820 so it seems improbable she would be getting married in Ohio.
The Indiana marriage database does have a marriage of Hannah to Josiah Pugh on 15 Aug 1830, in Wayne County.
