Photo Number 340
Meet Fan’s sister Ida Hannant Barnes. She was born in 1851, she died in 1942 in Lincoln, Nebraska. She married John Beamont Barnes they had four sons; John Beaumont Jr., Augusta, Guy and Alfred.
The other children I have found in the Hannant family..the parents were Robert W. Hannant and Hanna Clarissa Franklin ( a descendant of Ben Franklin) Ok the kids : George N, Tamar ( here is her Obituary) , Curtis, Norrison, Fannie, Adaline, Ida, Clara, Edna Mae and Mary. The maternal grandfather of these children was very wealthy..he was a gold prospector and owned Lumber Mills in Iowa.
I left a phone message last night with Edna Mae’s Great Granddaughter Ruth who lives in Texas..we will see what happens. I do have her address too..thanks to Iggy..I can try that too.. I will print out this blog entry and mail it to her.
The day I purchased these photos I thought that Fan and Ida might be sisters..there is a strong resemblance. There was eight years separating these girls birth. I think that Ida is a stunning woman..she has a real presence and her gown and that jabot and the earrings just add to her confidence.
This is the back of Ida’s photo. From Florence’s Art Gallery Pearl Street Sioux City, Iowa. I could find no info for this gallery. All photos in this Aunt Fan Mystery series are CdV’s. I think we can safely date this CdV at about 1875, she would have been 24 years old that year.
Tomorrow we will get a look at Ida’s husband. Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Here is the connection to Ben Franklin..from Iggy..Thanks!
