There is a Hannah Calhoun, aged 72, living with Hannah’s brother Reuben Calhoun, during the 1850 census (actually 2 Hannah Calhouns since one is Hannah (Beers) Calhoun, his wife). No relationships are given. Did Hannah lie about her age and say she was 20 years younger? As far as is known, Hannah Calhoun died unmarried and without issue.
