     Children:

The two children shown here are not well documented as the children of John and Hannah; the connection is based solely on children of surname Hallack being found in the households of friends and relatives in 1850, after the deaths of the parents. Based on the unknown children shown on the 1840 census, it appears that there may have been additional children as well.
