    Notes 
    • William left Virginia for Georgia, a move that his father did not approve. The sea air wasn't good for his wife's health, and the climate of the Deep South seemed a welcome change. Georgia and a whole new life lay ahead of the Hanson's, but they paid a price for the move. When William left Virginia, his father disinherited him. William and Ann spent their remaining years on their son's Monroe County farm. It is unknown whether they ever saw Virginia again.

      William Hanson's will was written on february 27 1842. It reads as follows:In the name of God Amen. I William Hanson of the State of Georgia and the County of Monroe, considering myself to be fast on the decline of life, though in perfect mind and memory and calling to mind the mortality of my body, knowing that it is once appointed that all men should die, and as touching such things as wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me with, do give, demise, and dispose of the same in the following wit: First of all I recommend my soul into the hands of Almighty God who gave it and my body to the groundto be buried in Christian like manner by my executors hereinafter named.Secondly, do I make and ordain my loving son, Enoch Hanson my legal executor revoking all others, It is my desire that my executor pay all legal debts.
