Hanna married Elmer E. King of Scottdale PA. abt. 1891. Hanna died after Gall Bladder surgery in May about 1923-25 and I believe she is buried in Greensburg, PA. Elmer remarried (?) and had another son, Richard that died after a work related accident. Hanna & Elmer had two children, my grandmother, Estella Pearl born on Aug. 13, 1892, died Feb. 18, 1982 in Bakersfield, CA., and a son Walter V. born in 1894. Walter passed in the 1950s and is buried in Penn Hills, PA.
Estella married Clayton Torrance of Scottdale, PA.
Estella and Clayton had one child, my mother, Monica Pricilla Torrance born Aug. 3,1908 died on Feb. 3, 1987 in Bakersfield, CA.
Mom married Samuel Stanley McClellan Adams who was born April 2, 1908, in Manor, PA.  My sister Nancy Torrance and myself Susan Carol are the children of this marriage.
I will send you more information on Elmer's parents and my Dads family if you want.
Now I will try to send the picture of Susan Rebecca S. Goswick and William Henry Goswick with Bruce and Carrie (Caroline Goswick) Hopper and Sammy Hodge. The picture of the lady and man is the wedding picture of Hanna and Elmer.
Nice to share with you.  I will send more pictures in a couple of days.
