Cabinet Photo, Elderly Hanna Macklin (Mechling) of Damascus & McClure, Henry Cty, Ohio

Cabinet photo by J. A. Armbruster of McClure, Ohio, of an elderly Hanna Macklin.

She inscribed the back of her photo to "Miss Mary Heeter, [from] Aunt Hanna Macklin, McClure, Ohio."

I believe Hanna was born in 1817 in Fairfield County, Ohio and died in Henry County, Ohio in 1906.  

Her father was Peter Mechling, born in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania in 1780.  His parents were DeWalt and Anna Maria (Rugh) Mechling.  

Hanna's mother was Mary Boyer, born in 1781 in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Michael and Margaret (Clapper) Boyer.

At some point, Peter or his children changed the spelling of Mechling to Macklin.

Hanna (or Hannah, as some online sources show) never married.  She lived in Pleasant, Damascus and possibly McClure, Ohio.

If you have any information on the life of Hanna Macklin or her family, please contact me.
