    • Notes for HANNAH ELIZABETH JOHNSON:
      Hannah Elizabeth Johnson Huffman Wheaton Staley, Original Pioneer of
      1852, by Kara Seager-Segalla, updated July 2004, a descendent of Sarah
      Ann Huffman
      Hannah Elizabeth Johnson was born on July 31, 1806, near Albany,
      New York. She was the daughter of Abraham Johnson and Hannah Vanhusen
      Wheeler. It is believed that both of her parents were born in the
      state of New York in the early 1780's. Abraham Johnson and Hannah
      Wheeler had eight children, John, Hannah, Peter, Jacob, Joseph,
      William, Serenen or Cyrenius, and Richard. All of these children were
      born in the state of New York. It is known that Hannah's brothers,
      John, William, Cyrenius, and Richard, all settled in Canada and that
      many of their descendants still live their today.
      Little is written about Hannah's early life. It is known,
      however, that the Johnson family's household water came from a canal
      and the children were obliged to do the carrying. One day little
      Hannah put her pail into the swift stream and the current pulled her
      in. Her cries brought two workmen from a nearby field, so she was
      rescued. The early pioneers of this time were never wholly free from
      fear of Indians. It is reported that the Indians stole Hannah when
      she was young. Through her courage, she waited until the Indians
      were asleep and escaped.
      One history states that the Johnson family with three children,
      including Hannah, moved to Canada, because of their Tory thinking,
      settling near Bertie Township in Ontario. Hannah grew up to be young
      dark-haired women. She met a man by the name of George Ransier
      Huffman, whose family was living nearby. Mr. Huffman was about 8
      years older then Hannah Johnson. She would have been about 16 years
      of age.
      George Huffman was born in Bertie, Ontario, Canada on Nov. 22,
      1798, to Jacob Huffman and Nancy Ransier. The earliest history of a
      Huffman is of Jacob, born of German stock in Pennsylvania about 1765.
      The name was originally spelled Hoffman. The family had royalist
      sympathies, and so migrated to Canada at the time of the Revolutionary
      War, settling at Bertie in the province of Ontario. Jacob grew up to
      marry Nancy Ransier, who was born in Pennsylvania about 1770. Ten
      children were born to the marriage: Jacob, Rebecca, Catherine,
      William, George Ransier, Abigail, Nancy Ann, Betsie, Mary, and
      Margaret. All of these children were born in Canada.
      After their marriage, Hannah and George Huffman lived in
      Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. It was in West Waterloo, on August 28,
      1823, that their first child, Jacob Huffman, was born. Some records
      show a child, Hannah, who was born about 1825, but died as an infant.
      Sarah Ann Huffman was born July 5, 1827, in Bertie, Ontario, Canada.
      George Ransier Huffman died Jan. 25, 1830, of mountain fever in
      Canada. George was 31 years old and left a family of two, the
      youngest, Sarah Ann, just 2
