A.P. Hanna is a native of Fairfield County, Ohio where he was born November 16, 1831. His parents were John and Elizabeth Hanna, the former a native of Cumberland County, Md., and the later of Virginia; the former of Scotch-Irish, and the latter of German descent. Our subject was reared on a farm and adopted farming as his life profession. At the age of twenty-two he left home and began to work out by the month and year. On March 16, 1854, he was married to Sarah A. Gundy, daughter of Noah and Anna (Line) Gundy. She was born in Fairfield County, Ohio, in 1830, where she was reared. This union was blessed with two children, Elida J. and Wallace G., both of whom are married and living in this county. Mr. Hanna located in this township March 31, 1860, and settled on the farm Mr.Gundy lives on now. In August 1861, he purchased the farm on which he now resides, which was then almost all in the woods. Since his arrival, he has developed one of the best farms in this section. It consists of 120 acres, and his improvements are first-class. He began life a poor boy, and when he was married he only had $55, but can now be classed among Jefferson’s most successful farmers. He is a staunch Republican, and firmly believes in the principles of his party. He and his wife are members of the United Brethren Church, with which they have been connected thirty-one years.
