ID # 2931, (1804-1872)
|Birth||Hannah Kitchen was born on 1 October 1804 at Ancaster Twp.|
|Marriage||She married John Purvis Lawrason, son of Miller Lawrason and Elizabeth Purvis.|
|Death||She died on 21 December 1872 at Brantford Twp., Brant County, Ontario, at age 68.|
|Burial||She was buried at St. George Cemetery.|
|Note||When Amelia Lawrason Moe, the first wife of John Wesley Moe, died in 1850, she had a daughter Tressa Amelia Moe. Tressa is found in the care of John Wesley Moe's sister Clarissa Moe Parsons in Galt at the time of the 1851 census. It can't have been long thereafter that the child went to the care of her maternal grandfather John Purvis Lawrason and his second wife Hannah Kitchen. Certainly, Tressa, shown by her second given name Amelia, is found with John and Hannah in the 1861 census in South Dumfries. John died in 1865, but Amelia, by this time about 15, must have stayed with Hannah. Tressa married George Agnew about 1870 and Hannah is with them in Brantford Township at the time of the 1871 census. We must believe that she remained with them until her death the following year.|
