Did you notice that the date inscribed on the front of the Hanna sarcophagus is 1895? Did you wonder why? I did.
So I took advantage of the online burial records on www.springgrove.org to check the death dates of the Hanna sons.
I am thinking that 1895 represents the date the monument was set in place and that it corresponds to the death of the Hanna sons who died in 1895: Thomas (died May 25, 1895) and Ellison (died November 17, 1895). Their brother Charles died in 1894.
