Berthenia M. (Shook) Hanlon was born on the 7th of May 1842 in Green County, Wisconsin. She married John B. Hanlon (1842-1911) in 1868. Together they had seven children, and after moving several times, they eventually settled in Pittsburg, Kansas. Berthenia would pass away in 1904. There are some variations in the spelling of the last name Hanlon, some family members either changed the spelling of their last name or misspelled on the materials in the collection (Hanlen, Hanlin).
