71. JOHN A. HANSBROUGH: (36 William) Born January 31, 1847; married Laura L. Davis, born April 29, 1849, in IN. They were married at Poseyville, IN, on February 1, 1870, Father John Schrader, officiating. He died at Enfield, IL, and is buried with his wife and mother in St. Patrick's Catholic Cemetery at Enfield. They had nine children. John Alexander Hansbrough is the author's grandfather. However, I know very little about my grandparents except through stories told by my father and his sisters. My grandmother died before I was born. Although I was born in the house next door to my grandfather's house and store, my mother took me to Texas when I was about six weeks old. My memory of my grandfather is limited to two short visits when I was about five and nine years old. My grandfather was born January 31, 1847, in Kentucky; moved to Enfield, IL, sometime before 1880. In Enfield, he built a small general store with his home adjoining and connected to the store building. The second floor of the store building contained a number of small bedrooms (unheated) where his many children slept. My grandmother died sometime before 1900 after a lingering illness. After her death, my great- grandmother looked after her large brood of grandchildren until her death in 1900. (For data on the Davis Family, my grandmother's family, and the Wathen Family, my great-grandmother's family, see Chapter V).
