Tombstone Tuesday - Ross & Beatrice Hannan

Now that I shared a little about my paternal grandmother, I will share with you about my mother's parents.

Ross Newell Hannon was born 29 Nov 1902 in Palermo, Maine.  He married Beatrice Natalie Hall on 3 Jan 1927.  Beatrice was born 17 Jun 1906 in Danforth, Maine, she died on 9 Jun 1976.  Ross died on 7 July 1992.  They are buried in Hannan Cemetery in Palermo, Maine.

Grammie and Gramps were great people.  As grandparents go, we could not have asked for more.  They were loving and caring and what us grandkids really appreciated - they never got upset with us, no matter what mess we made or what got accidently broken.

They were poor farmers.  They never had much but they shared what they had. 

They raised three beautiful daughters, my mother among them.

Rest in Peace.  Love, your granddaughter Kathy

  1. I see Ross' Middle name was Newell. I have a gg-gf named Almon Newhall which I have seen splelled Newell also. They lived in Washington Maine which is south of Palermo. Any connection?
    Also Thanks for your kind comment on my recent post.
