Alexander Hanna & Mary ?Warren
Home ] Up ]

 

I believe it is highly likely that Alexander Hanna's wife was Mary Warren, daughter of Thomas Warren and his 2nd wife Jane (?Harris or Duley).  According to Probate Proceedings https://www.ancestry.com/wiki/index.php?title=Probate "bondsmen were usually relatives or family friends until recently, when bonding companies replaced personal sureties. If the wife is executrix, the bondsmen will usually be her relatives...Bondsmen are usually relatives who are willing to stand the risks and who have some some leverage over the persons they guarantee. Where her maiden surname is unknown, look carefully at the names of the bondsmen."

According to https://www.reference.com/family/immediate-family-8b7b536e2043e962 Next of Kin also known as Immediate Family is "usually defined as one's spouse, parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, siblings and immediate in-laws (mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law and sister-in-law)."

In the case of Alexander Hanna's estate his wife was the executrix, and  the bondsmen (sureties) and next of kin were Humphrey Warren, his brother Thomas Warren, their brother Barton Warren, and their brother-in-law George Scoggins who married their sister Elizabeth Warren. The Warrens listed in this document were the children of Thomas Warren and his second wife Jane. Thomas Warren wrote his will 3 years before he died - the unborn child mentioned in his will was son Humphrey Warren and there was sufficient time during those 3 years for another child to be born or for at least the wife to be pregnant again before Thomas Warren died.

The names of the 4 under age children in the Inventory of ALEXANDER HANNA have not been established, but one possibility is John  Hannon/Hannan who named a son Walter Warren Hannon and who also had ties to the Scroggins family. This John's son John named a daughter Mary Warren Hannon so the name Warren was carried down through my line for some reason.
