Martha Elizabeth Tatum Hanna's Family Bible


Written by Mrs. Mattie (Martha ) E. ( Tatum ) Hanna sometime in
1936 to 1938.

My grandfather Tatum was always called Uncle Billy Tatum & his
wife Aunt Phoebe. He was a Baptist Minister. My father was Wm.
Barham Tatum the Barham being his mothers maiden name. 
brothers - John, Ned, Lewis, Seth, Tom. - Sisters, Prudence,
Jemima, Mary, Martha, Rebecca & Mildred. Southern. Pa was born
in Kentucky. My Grandmother was Appy Folden. My Grandfather
was John Johnson. My mother was Emily Johnson born in 
Tennesse. brothers, Garland, Isaac, Cyrus & Wm.( you may 
remember Uncle Wm. W Little). Uncle Seth live a bachelor & spend
many years in Honey Valley Calif. in gold mining with a Partner by
the name of Prichett. Some believe he was wealthy, but none of it
came our way which may have been due to the fact that my fathers
alligiance to the flag seriously injured his place in a family of rebel
leanings. all of his brothers being in Confederate forces. also my
mothers brother Garland Johnson was in rebel army while Uncle
Cyrus Johnson was captain in northern army. I see that I left out the
fact that my grandmother Johnson was a Clay aunt to Henry Clay
that making H.C. my second cousin. Blanche tells me uncle Bert told
her the Hanna's came from Virginia, I believe they claim kinship with
Andy Jackson. We are of the Mark Hanna branch of the family.
