Hannah Cobb was born on 30 Jun 1794 in Pawlet, Rutland Co., Vermont.5,6,7 She was probably one of the two females under age 10 listed in the household of her father, Capt.

     Hannah and Stephen Lowing moved to Genesee Co., in western New York, by 1830, where her sister Drusilla and her husband were apparently already living.16 (See map.) She was probably the female age 30 to 40 listed in the household of her husband, Stephen, in the 1830 Federal Census of Gainesville, Genesee Co., New York.17
     Perhaps after living briefly in Vermont, where their daughter Emily was born, Stephen and Hannah moved to Crawford Co., in north-western Pennsylvania. Her sister Drusilla and her husband, who they had lived near in New York, had apparently already moved there.18,19 Hannah and Stephen appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Conneaut Twp., Crawford Co., Pennsylvania, enumerated 10 Sep 1850, reporting real estate valued at $1,600. Their children Henry, Wheeler and Emily were listed as living with them.20
