  • Notes 
    • John was baptised on Sunday 19 Jan 1879 (see copy of entry). On Monday 27 Jan 1879 his mother Mary registered his birth as Thursday 23 Jan 1879. (similar delay with Patrick in 1876).

      Moved to Scotland (audio recording Bridie Doherty/Hagan & Georgie Hannaway). No record so far of when John moved to Scotland. We know he joined "Royal Horse Artillery & R Field Artillery" Glasgow Depot on 8 October 1900 aged 21yrs 8mths; reported to Woolwich Barracks two days later. Posted as a Driver on 25 October 1900; his Regimental No.12785 - see copy of Attestation.
      John Hannaway deserted 16 December 1900 and appeared on the British Army Deserters list in the Police Gazette. (Source: Ancestry.com. UK, Military Deserters, 1812-1927 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2016.)

      In the 1901 census John is boarding with his cousin Peter Hannaway (Hughie's son) at 15 Buchanan St., Coatbridge, Scotland.

      John emigrated to USA and married Annie Agnew in Nov 1902 in Lynn, Massachusetts.

      In 1904 John became a US citizen, his address: 94 Cottage St., Lynn, Mass. On his application he entered he was born "1 Feb 1880" (he was born 23 Jan 1879) in "Leavanniore, Armagh, Ireland" (he was born in Levallymore/Levelamore, Armagh, Ireland-his birth registration.) There is no townland in Ireland commencing "Leav" - source: http://www.dippam.ac.uk/eppi/documents/14424/page/373305. Was John covering his tracks as a deserter?
      Six years later in the 1910 census John is shown with his family at 71 Cottage St., Lynn, Mass. From here onwards his entries record his correct age.
      Annie Agnew died of influenza in Feb1920, however John goes on to marry Lillian Rogers in 1922.
