Hannah was nineteen when she met James CASE. They were married,
December 12, 1815, and made their home in Austinburg, where James farmed.
Their first two children died soon after birth.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was active in their
area, and on April 29, 1839, Hannah was baptized a member. James was
baptized later, in 1846, when they were living in Nauvoo, Illinois.

They left Nauvoo with the other members of the church, and at Winter
Quarters, James left Hannah to find work at a government station, on the
Lower Platte River. He farmed for the government, but when they learned
he was a Mormon, they dismissed him and he returned to Winter Quarters.

James left Winter Quarter with Brigham Young's first company and
Hannah remained with her son, Solomon. Just seven days before their
wagon train was to leave, Solomon married Emily Richey. The three of
them Hannah, Solomon, and Emily, left Winter Quarters, June 17, 1847, in
the Thomas Thurston Company. They joined James.

They spent that first hard winter in the area now known a "Pioneer
Park," remaining in the Salt Lake Valley until the Spring of 1850, they
then moved to Manti, in Sanpete County.
Hannah's time in Sanpete was short-lived. She died of consumption,
October 15, 1850, at fifty-four years of age.

Hannah had lived her short life as wife, mother, faithful church
member, and pioneer.
