with one of the richest and sweetest of the P.salms — the
I9tli — by reading the 4th verse: 'Their line is gone out
through all the earth, and their words to the end of the
world.* Some of us memorized the beautiful words of
the entire P.salm, and many times, as we have traveled
by the side of the telegraph wire, we have rei:)eated the.se
words and recalled the suggestive thoughts of that day.
So she fed us with manna, 'Sweeter than honey in the
honey-comb,* and we laid it by in store that shall never
grow old while we tarr^- in the wilderness of life.**

Mrs. Hanna said of herself: "I l>egan teaching in
1824. I taught for more than nine years district and se-
lect .schools, in the different town.ships of Hebron, Salem,
Argyle and Fort Edward, in my native county. The
only education I had received was in the district schools,
and as I contiiuied teaching, I felt the necessity of obtain-
ing further instruction and acquiring more thorough
knowledge, to enable me to do what I desired. * * i
made up my mind to enter some seminary of learning, if
I could obtain the consent of my parents. I brought ihe
.subject before them, but they o[)|x)sed my wishes, .saying
that I could now conunand as high a salary as any lady
in the county and with this I ought to l)e satisfied.'*
This opposition seems to have been overcome, for in

1833 Miss Foster entered Troy Female Seniinary, tlitii
under the care and management of Emma Willard, the
foremost female educator in our country. Miss Foster
conceived a great admiration for Miss Willard, and in
her hiter years spoke affectionately of her and ranked
her among the best women who had ever done a public
service, and was always ready to pay her the tribute of a
pupil's gratitude.

After leaving Troy Seminary Miss Foster was called
to Cadiz, Ohio, where she established and successfully
conducted a Seminary for young ladies until 1840, when
she was elected Principal of the Female Seniinary at
Washington, Pennsylvania. In 1848 she married the
Rev. Thomas Hanna, pastor of the Associate Church in
Cadiz, Ohio. He nMuoved to Washington, Pennsylva-
nia, and was chosen pastor of the Associate Church at
that place, of which Church Mrs. Hanna was also a
member.

Mrs. Hannahs influence in the community was great-
er, perhaps, than that of any other citizen. This was
due not solely to lier jM)sition, but to her character and
strong |)ersonality. She made herself felt upon the
people. She made her home in the Seniinary a place of
social power as well as of mental instruction. Mrs. Han-
na's graduates are living in all parts of the country and
many of them are missionaries in foreign lands. Miss
Isabella Thobmn, of Lucknow, India, was one of these.
Wherever they reside they remember her with the affec-
tion of children. U|x>n all of them she left the impres-
sion of her noble life. As time went on the infirmities
of age gathered upon her, and on the 28th of March,
1874, she re.signed her position as Principal and retired
to private life. Taken all in all, .she was one or the most
u.seful an<l successful of the eminent women of the first
half of the nineteenth centUM-.

Skktch of Thomas Bevkridge Hanna.

Thomas Beveridge Hanna was horn near Cadiz,
Ohio, March 27, 1828. His father, Rev. Thomas Han-
na, D. D., was, at that time. Pastor of the Associate
Presbyterian Congregation of that place. His mother
was Jemima Patterson, eldest daughter of Robert Pat-
terson, of Mount Pleasant, Ohio.

His connnon school education was obtained in Cadiz,
under different teachers. He commenced the Latin
grammar when nine years old, and although he did not
pursue his studies regularly from that time, he entered
the Freshman class in Franklin College, Ohio, in the
Autumn of 1840, at the age of twelve, and continued
there till August, 1844, when he completed his course
and received the first degree in the Arts.

The highest honors of his class were awarded to
him, and the Valedictory was delivered by him on Com-
mencement day.

He was a member of the Jefferson Literary Society,
and was twice chosen by his fellow members to represent
them in literary contests.

Among his paj^rs have been found a number of
essays and addresses on various subjects, wTitteii during
his collegiate course — essays and orations on **The Pro-
gress of Truth;" "The Influence of Ambition;'* **The
March of Mind;" an excellent one on "The Beiiefits of
Christianity as Contrasted with Infidelity;" one on "The
Bible;" and an address delivered to the Graduates of the
Jefferson Literary Society. He was admitted to the
study of Theology, by the Presbytery of Muskingum, in
the Autumn of 1844. In Noveml>er he went to the The-
ological Seminary at Canonsburg and conunenced attend-
ance on the lectures of Rev. Drs. Martin and Beveridge. •
As the session only extended from the beginning of No-
vember till the last of March, he had the intervening

seven montlis to himself. This time he s|)ent in pursuing
his studies, in general reaih'ng, in preparing discourses
for Presbytery, and, during a part of the time, in teach-
ing a district school, and also a few Latin scholais, in a
school on his father's farm.

It soon became evident that he iHissessed more than
ordinary gifts for preaching. This was known not only
to the professors and students, but also to the citizens of
the place. The}' were always anxious to know when his
turn would come tu deliver a discourse in the Chapel of
the Seminary, and by their presence and fixed attention,
on these occasions, manifested their high estimation of
his ability.

In June, 1848, he was licensed by the Presbytery of
Muskingum to preach the Gospel. He supplied three
months in the Presbytery of Muskingum and Chart iers,
and then, about the loth of September, proceeded to
Wisconsin, to which field he had been set apart by the
Board of Home Missions.

When he arrived in Wisconsin he found that his
home was to be at Waterville, Waukesha County. The
people were generally poor, and as they possessed few
acconuiiodations he took boarding at the village tavern,
and, by the kindness of a young physician of the place,
was permitted to occupy his office as a study room. He
had four regular preaching places: Ottawa, three miles
from Waterville; Achei)en, eighteen miles north; Lis-
bon, fifteen miles northeast; and Warren, thirteen miles
north. These were his regular preaching places, but
Neenah and Fond du Lac, the former one hundred miles
north and the latter seventy, required a part of his time.

In May, 1849, Mr. Hanna returned to Washington,
and at the meeting of the Synod at Allegheny, calls were
presented to him from Cambridge, Ohio, and \{< connec-
tions, and from the Associate Congregation of Clinton,

197

Allegheny Count)', Pennsylvania, under the care of the
Presbytery of Chartjers. The latter of these he accept-
ed, hut decided to labor for five months as a missionary
in New York City, l)efore entering on his duties as a
pastor. He went to New York City and remained there
from June until the end of Octol)er, laboring in what was
called the Mission Church. Alx)Ut the first of Noveni-
l>er, 1849, Mr. Hanna l)egan preaching at Clinton. Penn-
sylvania. He was ordained and installed on December
I3tli; the charge to him, as pa.stor, being delivered by
his father, the Rev. Thomas Hanna, Sr. From this
time until the date of his death, February 5, 1852, Mr.
Hanna kept a diary, which has been preserved and which
contains mateiial of great interest. We wish it might
be given, in full, in this volume. This being impractica-
ble it is sufficient to say that it is his .simple narrative,
not of the deeds of a warrior or statesman, but chroni-
cles the deeds and aims of a higher life and a nobler place,
showing evidences of great talent and remarkable intelli-
gence. This gifted and brilliant meml)er of the Hanna
family was a follower of the meek and lowly Jesus, a
soldier of the cross — called, chosen and faithful.

On Tuesday, January 20, 1855, Mr. Hanna had a
severe attack such as he had several times previou.sly
been afflicted with, but which was not regarded as seri-
ous. On Friday he became worse; the disea.se was now
changed to enteritis, or what would now be known as ap-
pendicitis. On Wednesday the 4tli of February he sank
rapidly and died at 8 o'clock on Thursday morning.

In the character of Mr. Hanna were blended many
excellencies not usually combined in the same person.
His personal appearance was prepoSvSessing. He was
rather tall and slender, and easy and graceful in his man-
ners. He had a bright, intelligent and expressive eye,
and his winning countenance was a true index to the
goo<lness of his heart. There will not be found in the

of the firiii the business was extended so as to include
the manufacture of rolling-mill, steamboat and other
machinery, and agricultural machinery and implements.
For a long time Mr. Sweeney was Mayor of the City of
Wheeling, beginning in 1855; ^^^ was afterwards elected
in 1861, 1862, 1865, 1867 and 1875, serving from the last
date till 1881, and in all, serving nine terms in this ca-
pacity.

In 1876 President Grant appointed him Commis-
sioner .for West Virginia to the Centennial Exposition at
Philadelphia. He was also appointed, in 1873, by Pres-
ident Grant, a Commissioner to the Vienna Exposition,
and in 1878 to the French P^xi)osition at Paris; serving
acceptably in all of these responsible positions.

During the war of the Rebellion he was a Colonel of
Militia and served in the field during the famous Morgan
and Jones raids. While Mayor of Wheeling Colonel
Sweeney performed the first great act towards .severing
West Virginia fro::i Virginia. Three days after the
passage of the Ordinance of Secession, John Letcher,
Governor of Virginia, telegraphed the Mayor:



"Richmond, April 20, 1861.

''Andkew Sweeney, Mayc^ of Wheeling."



In his career Mr. Sweeney saw many vicissitndes,
politically, in the comitry's history and in a bnsiness way,
and no man was ever more equal to an emergency than
he. Some of his official acts will long be remembered to
his credit, as they .showed promptness, firnniess and in-
telligence as well as independence. He was an inventor
of con.siderable renown, a number of valuable patents
having been granted him, and his intimac}' with all
forms of machinery and his knowledge of applied mechan-
ics was .second to that of no man in the country. For a
generation he was intimately connected with all that
went to benefit the City of Wheeling. His son is now
Mayor of that City. In 1861 Mr. Sweeney was married
to Maria E. Hanna, daughter of Rev. Thomas Hanna.

APPENDIX A.

NOTKS ON THK FAMILY OF HUGH HaNNA.

It has |)een iinix>.s.sil)le to obtain much information
regarding the descendants of Hugh, the fourth son of
Thomas and Klizabkth Henderson Hanna. While
the families of the other fonr children are thought to 1)e
given quite completely in this volitme, we find much
confusion of names and dates when we come to the fam-
ily of Hugh Hanna; and the chronology and names
here given cannot he said to be full and complete, or even
strictly reliable. Hugh Hanna was born in Ireland in
1756 and emigrated with his parents, brothers and sister
to America in 1763. After the death of his parents and
after having l>een apprenticed to a farmer in Bucks Coun-
ty, Peinisylvania, for some years, he went into Washing-
ton County, Pennsylvania, married Rel)ecca ?

and settled on Ten Mile Creek, Morris Township. This
was about or in the year 1790. We have no further rec-
ord of Hugh Hanna cxcejU that the manuscript notes of
Rol)ert Hanna, his brother, say that he died in 1820.
His tombstone, in Peter's Creek U. P. Graveyard, says
the date of his death was December 27, 1821.

Robert Hanna s manuscript gives the following list
of Hugh and Rel)ecca Hanna's children:

(i) John Vanck, niarrieil LvniA McCollum and had issue
six ohiKiren: (a) TIioiuhs; (b) Matilda, married John Bradeu;
(c) Margaret, married MaUhias Miiitoii; (d) (e) (f) died in in-
fancy.

(2) Jamks, married PuoKBh; Day; removed to Carrol It on,
Ohio, where he died, previous to 1835, probably leaving no de-
scendants.

(3) Ei.iZABKTM, or Betsy, married SAMUEL Cl^U'iTKR.

(4) Rkbhcca, died nnniarrie<l.

(5) Nancy, married Jacob Hathaway.

nia, for many years and afterwards devoted his time to
agricultural work in Peter's and Nottingham Townships
— same county.

He was an active worker in the Democratic party
and held various local and county offices. At the time
of his death (1842) he was a member of the U. P. Church
of Peter's Creek.

the Hugh Hanna branch of the Hanna fann'ly. It has
l)een impossible to obtain portraits of the older members

APPENDIX B.

Sketch of U. S. Senator Robert IIanna.

General Rol)ert Haniia, sometime Senator from Indi-
ana, was lK)rn in Scmtli Carolina, April 6, 1786. He was
the son of Robert Hanna, born in the state of Delaware,
Dec. 10, 1744 and a cousin of the original Thomas Hanna
who emigra ed in 1763. The senior Rol^ert Hanna was
an intimate friend of Thomas Jefferson. He removed to
South Carolina and later to Franklin County, Indiana, in
1802, where he died January 24, 1821, after having
brought into the world a number of sons, of whom Gen-
eral Robert Hanna, the subject of this sketch, was the
most prominent. Rol)ert Hanna, the younger, showed
an aptitude for politics at an early age and was a mem-
l)er of the Constitutional Convention in 1816, helping to
frame tlie Constitution under which the State was ad-
mitted to the Union later that same year. In 1826 he re-
moved from Brockville to Indianapolis to accept the office
of Registrar of the land office which he held luitil the
election of General Jackson displaced him in 1829. He
was very much interested in military matters and during
the administration of Governor Ray, was at the head of
the Militia organization of the State with the title of Ma-
jor- General. He had a deep-seated antipathy to .slavery
and was prominent in the agitation of the day against
the extension of slave territory. On the death of
Senator James Noble in February 1831, Governor Ray
apiK)inted General Hanna to the United States Senate.
His term was very brief, since the Legislature met two
weeks later and elected John Tipton to fill out Noble\s
unexpired term.

To Robert Hanna belongs the credit of first navigat-

steamboat, known as the General Hanna, which arrived
at the dock in Angust 1831 amid the shouts of the entire
population of the village, gathered to witness its advent.
After this General Hanna engaged in various enter-
prises, in the course of which he accumulated a very re-
spectable fortune. He met his death, November 19, 1858.
He was endeavoring to cross the tracks of the old Peru
and Indianapolis Railroad, near his home in the north-
eastern part of the City, when he was run down and
killed by an incoming passenger train.
