Chris Crawford Notes:
With Hannah at Early Sr.’s house in 1850 is a “Margaret Carson,” 22, born in Ireland. Suggestive that this may be Hannah’s sister.
And the 1897 Brooklyn Directory lists, GRANGER Anna M. wid. Jas. F. h 8 Utica Ave, suggesting that Mary Ann, Hannah, are the same persons.
Bob Granger Notes:
Found in the 1850 census when she was living with Early at 145 Carll Street, also living there was a 22 year-old named Margret Carson living with her . Not finding “Hannah” in other sources, I reasoned that as young she may have re-married. I did a search on 13 year old Mary A. and turned her up in 1860 living with her mother, this time listed as "Anne M.'. Her brother James F. was listed as Jas. Frances and was the right age. But surprise, surprise there was also listed a Wm R. Granger a 7 year old. That would mean he was born about three years after James death. I tried to connect him to some other member of the family, but couldn't. In the 1870 census the family is still together and this time Hannah is listed as Ann M. By 1880 Mary Ann has married Joseph Kelty and Ann and James are living with her at 959 Atlantic ave. William is gone.
A search on William, born in 1853, turns him up married to an Ellen and working as a BRICK MASON. A quick look at N.Y. vital records turned up a marriage certificate for Willam and Ellen Dowden, married on 28 Apr. 1874. Williams father is listed as James and his mother is listed as Maria Carson. I wasn't sure about the C in Carson but my wife pointed out the C in Catholic on the first page. Is the initial "M" for Maria? Was the Margret Carson in the 1850 census a younger sister? I found a Margaret Carson that arrived from Ireland on 10 May 1850. James died in Feb. and the actual census date for 1850 was July. Could she have been sent for and arrived in that period of time?
Anyway In 1900 Hannah is now Anna M. and caring for three of Mary Ann's children . I can find no further mention of William and indeed Anna states that all three of her children have passed. Anna herself passes in 1903 and is buried Green-Wood.
