Hannah Shannon


Hannah Shannon is the last of the 2x great (great, great) grandparents I’ll be writing about this year. After this, comes all the great grandparents.

Hannah has been the trickiest one to write about as I have the least amount of information for her. She was the mother of James Watters. In my research on Hannah’s husband, Samuel Watters, I came up with the possibility that they came from the Carnteel parish.

My notes for the Watters family mention the ‘Stewart settlers’ (from family lore) who left County Tyrone in Ireland for New Zealand in the 19th century. The area in Tyrone they came from is in the same region as the Watters that I found in Carnteel Parish. I can see that more research is needed.
