    • John and Annie appears to have adopted or fostered other children throughout the years of their marriage. Family records show them as the parents of only five children born to them. Other children are listed on various census records as either "adopted son" or "daughter", when no indication exists that any of them were born to this couple.

      In an email dated September 4, 2006, Ron Hanks states that: the "5 children / 3 living" would account for; living, Alvin Roscoe, James Arvil and Perry and dead; Wiley & Zola Faye. As for the other mystery children my best guess is that they are all adopted. We know that a 3 year old Phillip Hanks is listed as adopted in 1920. I had overlooked the 7 year old Rosalie Dagley in 1910. Between the fact that John & Annie married in 1889 and their oldest son was only 19, this could not be a grand-daughter (unless John had a daughter from a previous marriage, but I've seen nothing to indicate that. Even so, she is listed as a daughter, not grand daughter) I had always assumed that Dora Jones was a daughter based on the 1930 census (but had wondered where she was in the earlier census.) Dora, Rosalie and Phillip are not listed as children in SueAnna's info. That information stated 5 children, 2 that died young in IL which is consistant with the 1910 census data. The only thing that seems to make sense would be that they were all adopted children (perhaps orphans?). Considering John's father died when he was 5 and his mother died when he was 7 he may have been inclined to help orphaned children.
