Note that Hannah died less than a year after her youngest son, Elvin, was born. Children Effie and Elvin were then reared in the home of Hannah's brother, Thomas Hinshaw.9,10
Son Elvin was described in a biography of Hannah's brother Thomas and his wife Mary Barker Hinshaw:9,10
Unfortunately, Elvin Bean failed to grow normally. His height never exceeded three and a half feet. This handicap did not affect his mental capacities, and he lived a full, active life. He married a woman of similar stature, and they lived together many happy years. Far and near he was known as "Little Bean."
Alson remarried after Hannah died - he married a total of three times. His third wife was Margaret Hammel.8 Alson resided at 1002 W. Lee Street in Greensboro, N.C.8
Alson died Jul 5 1921, Greensboro, Guilford County, North Carolina; buried Holly Spring Meeting Cemetery.8
Family folklore is that Alson's third wife, Margaret Hammel, was from New York and she died on the train when returning there after the death of Alson.4
