She is the wife of Valentine Colby 1728-1812, that “assisted in establishing American Independence, while acting in the capacity of Lieutenant in the Army.”  Hannah is the  mother of Hezekiah (1757-1817), Joseph, and Levi. I’m still researching Hannah and her ancestors and descendants.

She is my 6th great-grandmother from her son, Hezekiah to his son, Chellis; his son, James M; to his daughter, Kate E [who married Alonzo Chase;] to her daughter. Clara J Chase [who married William F Nelson;] to her daughter, Lillian Mae Nelson [who married Nathan A Stearns;] to her son, Nelson William Stearns-my father.
