Miss Hannah Green was born June 17th, 1833 , in the state of Delaware, and moved with her parents to the west in 1844. She gave her heart and her hand to the M.E. church in her 18th year. She was married to Mr. A. S. Atkinson, in Dubuque, Iowa Sept 20, 1854. They moved to Anamosa in 1856. She had been an invalid for twelve years, and for nine and a half years confined to her room, ever suffering but never complaning. Wonderful exhibition of the peace and blessings of christian faith and experience. She has passed away from suffering and trial to the realms of unsullied blessings in the paradise of God.
