    LIVED UNDER SIX MONARCHS
    BRANTFORD WOMAN NOW 101

    Mrs. Hanning Came to Canada in 1860 From Tipperary

    IS STILL HALE

    Special to The Star


    Brantford, April 14 — Mrs. Catherine Hanning, a warm-hearted Irish woman who has entered her second century, and to use her own words, has never had a quarrel with anyone in her life, to-morrow attains the age of 101 years. She is quite sure that a never-failing sense of humor has aided her longevity. Mrs. Hanning will be at home to friends at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Harvey Hunter, Brock St.

    Although her sight has failed and her hearing has lost its former keenness, Mrs. Hanning enjoys health unusual for one of her years, and this winter when all members of the Hunter family suffered from influenza, the centenarian member escaped. Her appetite for good "man-sized" meals would surprise many a younger woman, and to that factor she attributes her good health.

    Mrs. Hanning was born on April 15, 1836, in Tipperary, Ireland. As Catherine Quinlan she came to Canada in 1860.

    Members of her family have endeavored without success to obtain from Ireland an official record of the birth of Mrs. Hanning in 1836. Evidence of her age is that she arrived in this country in 1860, and was at that time known to be 24 years of age.

    Mrs. Hanning recalls clearly her arrival in New York and her trip to Brantford, making the last stage by boat up the Erie canal. The locks opened to let the boats through and horses on the tow paths assisted. At that time Brantford was "not much to look at."

    She recalls the moulding of tallow candles and the knotting of the wick, and paints many an interesting picture of homely groups. She herself used to set the spinning-wheel humming. Quilting "bees" were the social events of early days, and soap-making an important task.

    Mrs. Hanning has lived in the reign of six British monarchs; William IV, Queen Victoria, Edward VII, George V, Edward VIII and George VI.

    Brantford's oldest citizen is the last surviving member of her family. A sister, 87, died two years ago. She has one daughter, Mrs. Hunter, and three granddaughters; Misses Mildred, Nora and Yvonne Hunter, all of Brantford.
  • Catherine was featured again in a newspaper article published on page 22 of The Toronto Daily Star on 15 April 1940 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

    BRANTFORD WOMAN IS HALE AT AGE 104

    Mrs. Catherine Hanning Has Seen "Far Worse Depressions" Than Recent Years

    LAUDS HARD WORK

    Special to The Star


    Brantford, April 15 — "People complain too much about hard times nowadays," said Mrs. Catherine Hanning, Brantford's oldest citizen, who today celebrated her 104th birthday. "I have seen far worse depressions than we have had in recent years. When I first came to Brantford 80 years ago, I did housework for $1.25 a month. But, of course, money went a great deal farther in those days than it does now.

    "Hard work never hurts anyone. For 50 years I combined the duties of market gardening and housework. Many a time I have walked five miles to market, carrying a basket of eggs over one arm and a basket of butter over the other and have walked home again with my arms full of groceries, in time to prepare the noon meal."

    "If I had my life to live over again, I would certainly go out and enjoy myself," Mrs. Hanning remarked with a smile. "I think young people should go to movies, parties and entertainments and have a good time."

    Bright and cheerful, although hard of hearing, the centenarian has not known illness in recent years and is up every day. She was an ardent knitter and took great pride in her work until her eyesight failed 10 years ago. During the last war, she knitted many pairs of socks for Canadian soldiers.

    "I was married in Brantford to Peter Hanning, November 29, 1879," she recalled. "We didn't go on a wedding trip. We just went home." "We didn't pay much attention to changing styles in those days. If a woman had a flannel or cashmere dress, she thought a great deal more of it than she would of a silk or satin gown today." she said.

    Mrs. Hanning has always been keenly interested in politics and long before women obtained a vote, she made a hobby of collecting newspaper reports of elections. "I went out to cast my vote in this election," she remarked. "I was afraid this would be my last opportunity to vote and I did not want to miss it."

    Born in Tipperary, Ireland, Catherine Quinlan came to Canada with her brother Michael, when she was 24. "The journey on the sailing ship "Orient" took six weeks and some of those on the boat thought they would never see land again." she related. "The best way to look at life is with a little humor," is her philosophy. She has one daughter, Mrs. Harvey Hunter, with whom she resides; three granddaughters, Mrs. William Mooney, Toronto, and Mrs. Joseph Emery and Margaret Yvonne Hunter, Brantford, and one great-grandchild.
