HISTORY OF PORTER COUNTY INDIANA

The Hannon's I am working on came to LaPorte County after being married in Ireland in 1842 and then moved to Porter County, Indiana in 1847 -- would love to know where they were before that in Ireland, but haven't found that information as of January 2013.

In 1836, Porter County was formed, including the territory now comprising both Porter and Lake Counties, with Portersville as the county seat. In 1837, at the suggestion of local residents, the Indiana General Assembly changed the name of the county seat to Valparaiso, which is Spanish for "Vale of Paradise", to symbolize the beauty and wealth of the lakes and beaches and rich agricultural land surrounding it. Porter County is located in northwestern Indiana with Lake Michigan at its northern border.

Porter County was named in honor of Commodore David Porter of the U.S. Navy, whose famous battle during the War of 1812, while in command of the Essex, was fought near the harbor of Valparaiso, Chile. Commodore Porter captured seven British ships and took possession of the Marquesas Islands during this great exploit. Eventually, the Essex was blockaded by British ships in the harbor at Valparaiso and Porter was taken prisoner. He was released later and when Porter County was named after him in 1836, he was serving as American charge d'affairs at Constantinople. Commodore Porter died in 1843.

Early Irish Names in Porter County: Anderson, Barry, Bartholomew, Best, Biggart, Burke, Callahan, Cannon, Casey, Clark, Dwyer, Griffith, Hannon, Maxwell, McCarthy, McNeff, O’Brien, Quirk, Ryan, Smith, Walsh and Welsh. 

Matthew Hannon and Mary <Meehan>


Matthew and Mary <Meehan> Hannon are the first known Hannon ancestors, although they have remained elusive in all the years that people have been trying to find documentation on them. Have seen that Mary’s maiden name was Meehan, but not enough corroborating evidence at this point to make a firm committment.

There are varying accounts of the number of children from this pair, but the range is from eleven to thirteen. As you can see below, I only have information on one child. If you know any of the additional children, please let me know.

Matthew Hannon was born in Ireland and based on information discovered thus far his birth date is approximately 1780. At this time, his parents remain unknown. He married Mary, approximately 1800. Matthew’s youngest child, Michael, was born in Ireland in October of 1812. (Have also seen 1810 as birth year for Michael. Both dates have supporting evidence.)

Michael Hannon and Eleanor "Nell" Milligan


Michael was born Ireland May 1810 or possibly October of 1812. By all records available thus far, he is the youngest of a family of eleven to thirteen children. (Michael Hannon has also been seen in documentation as Michael O’Hannon and Michael Hannan. Remember that spelling of names is not a constant.) At this time, there is no information on Michael’s siblings.

Michael married one time, in Ireland in the spring of 1842 to Eleanor Milligan. Eleanor was born circa 1810 in Ireland. (Her first name has also shown up in documentation as Ella and Elinor. Her last name has also shown up in documentation as Mulehon.) Eleanor went by the nickname of “Nell.”

Michael and Nell Hannon had ten children. Five of those children died in infancy, oral history suggests they are buried on the Hannon farm. The five children that lived are as follows:

Michael and Nell emigrated from Ireland to the United States in 1843. The ship and ports are unknown at this writing. Michael and Nell lived in LaPorte, Indiana from 1843 to 1847. In 1847, they moved to Porter County, Indiana. They bought the family farm located at: north half of the south half (S 1/2) of section thirty-four (34) in township thirty-four (34) north, of range five (5) west in 1850. That farmstead is still in the Hannon family.

From the History of Porter County 1912  Michael Hannon was born in Ireland October 1814; he was the youngest of a family of thirteen children born to Matthew and Mary Hannon. Our subject was married in Ireland in the spring of 1842, to Ella Mulehon, who was born in the year 1812. In the year 1843, Mr. Hannon moved to LaPorte County, Indiana, remaining about four years; he then moved to Porter County, Indiana, and in 1850, purchased the farm where he now lives; he now owns 489 acres of land. Has a family of five children - Matthew, Mary, David, John and Thomas. He and his wife are members of the Catholic Church. {History of Porter County 1912}

Michael Hannon died 14 November 1900. He was 88 years old. He is buried at St. Paul’s Catholic Cemetery in Valparaiso, Porter County, Indiana. The  grave site is located at East Circle, row 3. There is a statue of Jesus near the monument. St. Paul’s Cemetery is located on Sturdy Road about 3/4 miles South of Highway 30.  There are 3 large cemeteries in a row down Sturdy Road. Graceland, Maplewood, and St. Paul’s. St. Paul’s Catholic Cemetery is located just before the railroad tracks. Michael and Eleanor appear to have been influential in the Catholic Church based on their burial location and the markers.

Nell died 2 Mar 1896. She was 85 years old. She is buried beside Michael at St. Paul’s Catholic Cemetery.

From the History of Porter County 1912

Michael and Elinor (Milligan) Hannon, both natives of Ireland, immigrated to America in 1843. Michael was a farmer and passed his life in that occupation.

Ten children came to them, five of whom died in infancy, those surviving being Matthew, Mary, David, John and Thomas, the latter of whom being the youngest born.

When the Hannon family settled in Porter County the community was in a most primitive condition. The prairie was in a state of pristine wilderness, and wild game of all the varieties peculiar to this section of the country abounded.

There were few settlers, with not more than six cabins between Kouts and the now thriving Valparaiso, then a mere hamlet.

The Hannon children attended such schools as the county provided in those early days, and of the five who lived to grow up in years of maturity Thomas J. and John were the only ones who remained in the family home -- a fact which may be accounted for in view of their being the youngest of children.

Both passed away some years ago, the mother (Elinor) in 1896 and the father (Michael) following in 1900.

Some interesting tidbits:

Michael's wife, Nell, wouldn't let him keep whisky in the house. That seems to imply that he may have been a heavy drinker. Have heard stories from family members that he then kept the whiskey in the barn so she wouldn't bother him about drinking.

Michael would ride by the Rising Sun one room schoolhouse. (Was located just south of Gannon's just over their south boundary.) He liked to "sniff the cork" and was often a bit looped up. The teachers and children were afraid of him, but he came with apples, oranges and candy for all. He would call them all outside, line them up and pass out the treats.

Michael was riding a horse and went down into a sink hole on the road just east of the house. He was unable to get the horse up to continue on home. Aunt Mollie (Mollie Maxwell) said they helped him on his way.

Michael would ride into town on one horse and return with an entirely different horse.

At one time, there was an argument and a shooting by Crooked Creek. Michael, so the story goes, did not want to be involved, so turned his head to avoid actually seeing what happened.
 


Matthew Hannon and Julia Callahan


Matthew was born Ireland 1842, the first son of Michael and Ella “Nell” Hannon. He married Julia Callahan in LaPorte County, Indiana 13 Apr 1868. Julia Callahan, was the daughter of Mrs. Catherine Callahan. Julia Callahan became a naturalized citizen in 1880.

Based on Census information, it appears that Matthew died before 1920. Julia (Callahan) Hannon was still living in 1920 and is recorded on the 1920 Census as residing in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, living with her bachelor sons Michael, David, John and Thomas. Also listed is daughter, Ellen. Julia Callahan Hannon died 21 Jan 1920. Illinois Death Certificate #6002861.

In 1883, Mike O'Brien and family moved to Kouts from Valparaiso and opened a grocery store on the present site of the Town Hall. John Welsh of Marshall Grove helped finance the two story building. The first floor was a grocery store. Coffee, sugar, flour, cereals, salt, crackers, etc. were measured out of the barrels and sold to customers in desired poundage. The candy in pails and store cookies in bug boxes with isingglass windows were so tempting to farm children who got to town rarely. But the most fascinating thing in the O'Brien store was the cuckoo clock and happy was the child who could linger there until the noon hour. Our modern noon whistle has no such charm.

The O'Brien family lived in the home now occupied by the Floyd Kerlinska family. A son, Frank, succeeded his father in business. He and his wife, the former Mayme Hannon of Marshall Grove, built and resided in a home back of the store now occupied by Laura and Emil Pulaski. They graciously served satisfied customers until 1916 when they sold their business to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Luers of Rensselear. The second floor of the building known as O'Brien's Hall, served as a meeting place for the lodges, social functions, high school classes and was for a period of time as a Methodist Church. The hall was reached by an outside stairs on the west side of the building, while the land west of the building was taken up with hitching racks.

A son, James (Jim) O'Brien built the store now owned by Hiatt and for a time ran a grocery store. Later he became the Kouts postmaster. The surviving O'Briens, Agnes Merry, Bertha Rennebaum, Sophia Cotton and the O'Brien twins, Leo and Louis, now live in California.

James T. Hannon. (Born 22 Apr 1881, Indiana.) Married Elizabeth English (Born 19 Feb 1891. Died 23 Mar 1986.) Circa 1901.

Michael Hannon. (Born May 1883, Indiana.) Married Elizabeth Schraff (Born 28 Oct 1884. ) Circa 1903.

BIOGRAPHICAL TEXT [History of Porter County. 1912.]

Thomas J. Hannon, of Kouts, Porter County, Indiana, one of the prominent farmers and stock-raisers in this community, was born in Porter County 15 June 1855, and all his life has lived within its borders. He is the son of Michael and Elinor (Milligan) Hannon, both natives of Ireland, who immigrated to America in 1848. (See Text for Michael) Michael Hannon was a farmer and passed his life in that occupation. Ten children came to them, five of whom died in infancy, those who survive being Matthew, Mary, David, John and Thomas, the latter of whom was the youngest born. When the Hannon family settled in Porter County, the community was in a most primitive condition. The prairie was in a state of pristine wilderness, and wild game of all the varieties peculiar to this section of the country abounded. There were few settlers, with not more than six cabins between Kouts and the now thriving city of Valparaiso, then a mere hamlet. The Hannon children attended such schools as the county provided in those early days, and of the five who lived to grow up to years of maturity, Thomas J. and John were the only ones who remained in the family home, -- a fact which might be accounted for in view of their being the youngest children.

In 1886, when Thomas Hannon was thirty-two years old, he married and built a little home on the old family homestead, and there continued in the operation of the farm with his father. The parents passed away some years ago -- the mother in 1896 and the father following in 1900. Upon their death, the old home passed into the ownership of Thomas and John Hannon, and Thomas has since continued in the worthy work, which his pioneer father began so many years ago, and in which the son gave valuable assistance from his boyhood days. The farm has increased in production and value worth every passing year, and is now regarded as one of the finest agricultural spots in Porter County. Under the able management of Mr. Hannon nothing has been left undone that might conduce to the general productiveness of the place, and it is a splendid example of what may be accomplished by the application of a generous portion of thrift and energy. The home is one of the finest to be found in this section, and is entirely in keeping with the strictly modern method which Mr. Hannon endorses and applies in the management of his farm.

As previously mentioned, Mr. Hannon was married 15 June 1886, his wife being Miss Ellen O'Donahue. She was born in Valparaiso, Indiana, in 1859, and is the daughter of Florence and Mary (Hurley) O'Donahue, both natives of the Emerald Isle, as were Mr. Hannon's parents. The O'Donahue's were farming people also, and Mrs. Hannon was the youngest of their ten children. Two bright and promising children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Hannon --  a son and a daughter, who are named John and Mary.

Mr. and Mrs. Hannon are communicants of the Roman Catholic Church, the faith in which they were reared by their parents, and are faithful and generous in their adherence to that church. They are among the most highly esteemed residents of the town and county, and have a large circle of friends in the community who have known them practically all their lives, and who are appreciative of the high order of citizenship represented by the family.


THE TORNADO -- From Kouts Centennial Book (1965)

Tornado 1917
1917 Tornado
Tornado Before - After
1917 Tornado - Before and After
 Catholic Church Kouts Tornado
Catholic Church Ruins - 1917 Tornado

The longest officially recorded tornado traveled 293 miles in Illinois and Indiana on May 26, 1917 and lasted 7 hours and 20 minutes. Its forward speed was 40 mph, which is about average. But tornado speed had varied from 5 to 139 mph, and this tornado found Kouts.

It was a hot May Saturday becoming sultry in the afternoon, the storm clouds began to gather, and the winds rumbled faintly in the west and steadily grew more audible. The black clouds gathered to the northwest and hung heavy. As the thunder became ominous, the strong southeast wind stopped blowing and not a leaf moved. An observer noted that the black clouds had two funnels as they roared in from the west after devastating Hebron and countryside. It then struck a bewildered townspeople most of whom were gathered for supper for the hour was 6 p.m.

In the town it dipped and rose and on one dip it completely destroyed the Christian Church and on another dip the Catholic Church, creamery and roller mills. Not a business building nor home in town escaped undamaged. Accompanying the furious wind was a hail storm with some stones as large as hen’s eggs and a torrential rain. The once beautiful trees in the Pennsylvania Park were felled or sheared off or were wrapped in corrugated metal roofing from the coal docks two miles west of town. Other trees throughout the town were uprooted, twisted and snapped off.

But the countryside near Kouts perhaps was the scene of the worst damage. The farm house of Joseph Cannon north of Kouts was twisted and torn away from the foundation, and the furnishings scattered to the four winds. All the members of the family were more or less injured.

South of the Joseph Cannon home, the John Dunkle home was destroyed and the son injured. And on the road running east, south of the Cannon home, the power of tornado seems to have bent all its energies. Here the homes were swept away completely. Since they had no basements, scarcely any mark of their whereabouts could be found. In this area the storm brought death to D.B. Resh, and aged farmer, and Julia Lane, fifteen, when their respective homes were swept away, and Wilbur Dunkle and the lane baby were hospitalized.

Dr. Dittmer’s home at Kouts was used as an emergency hospital. Here those suffering with minor injuries were treated and a comfortable home found for them.

The storm then proceeded northeastward toward Wanatah; here it turned and came back and struck Marshall Grove, causing heavy loss at the homes of John and Tom Hannon, John Welsh, George Koontz, Nelson Hughes and Jerome Bartholomew.

Few of those in the stricken district were protected by tornado insurance for the great majority had never believed this protection necessary in this part of the state. After the storm the agents had all they could do to attend to the demands upon them for policies.

And a tornado of much lesser proportion did strike Kouts on May 28, 1935.

From Agatha Ann HANNON Riley (2002)

The tornado that hit the Hannon farm tore down everything except the family home. There was a checkbook found in the yard from Chicago.

From Mary Margaret KELLY Christensen. (1977)

My Grandfather Thomas Hannon, was mostly a farmer. My Uncle John took over the farm when he got too old.

My Grandfather had the nicest place you could imagine. There were trees out back, which they called a grove. He had a buggy and a couple of horses. One horse was named "Old Bob." The KKK (Ku Klux Klan) spread yellow paint all over his red and white barn. When they had the driveway put in, it was cinders from burnt coal.

Ellen (O'Donahue) Hannon was my grandmother. She and my grandfather had two children, one boy and one girl.

I think she had a couple of brothers who never married. She had a sister whose married name was Stevenson. They had two daughters. My grandmother didn't exactly get along well with her family.

She was a grade school teacher. She was an immaculate housekeeper. She had our family and our cousins over on Sunday mornings, after Mass, for cake.

She and my Grandfather moved into the town of Kouts when they got older.

John Florence Hannon and Julia Bernadette Gannon  

John Florence Hannon was born Kouts, Porter, Indiana 9 June 1887. He is the son of Thomas J. Hannon and Ellen O’Donahue. John Florence Hannon married Julia Bernadette Gannon (Born 30 Dec 1894, Chicago, Cook, Illinois. Died 14 April 1958, Kouts, Porter, Indiana.) in Chicago, Cook, Illinois at Holy Name Cathedral on 14 Feb 1917.

John died 13 Nov 1949 as a result of spinal fluid leaking into his brain. He is buried in St. Mary’s Cemetery in Kouts, Porter, Indiana. Julia died 14 April 1958 in Kouts, Porter, Indiana. She had some type of vascular weakness that she was born with. The medical examiner said she should not have lived beyond having her first child. She is also buried at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Kouts.

BIOGRAPHICAL TEXT: From Mary Margaret (KELLY) Christensen 1997

Mary Cecelia (HANNON) Kelly was born at Kouts, Indiana. She grew up on a farm in Pleasant Township, Porter County, Indiana. She finished grade school at Pleasant Township, then she went to LaPorte and studied music, piano and English.

She worked in a local store. In the old days, they had groceries on one side and fabrics et cetera on the other. She was offered a job at Lowenstines in Valparaiso, but decided to work in Kouts, where her parents lived.

She met my father, James Thomas KELLY, at a wedding of the Lauer family, and married him on 6 January 1920. I was their first child, and was born at Riceville, Iowa. They had gone to Riceville to live after their wedding. After about three years, they moved to Kouts, Indiana. They had six children, three boys and three girls. My mother died of cancer at the age of 54.

From Richard Kelly (1997)

It seems that one night during a violent thunderstorm, Aunt Mary got out of bed and went to get Holy Water out of the cupboard and sprinkled all of the sleeping children. Only when they awoke in the morning did they realize she had grabbed the bottle of Blueing instead of the Holy Water -- that all had blue spots all over their faces.
