Born about 1875, Illinois.1  (Mar - 1877).2  

Viola was shown in the 1900 census (Jun 18 1900), living in the household of her aunt (or sister) Sarah Jane (Hancher) Carson in Oregon Township, Washington County, Iowa:2

Henshaw, Viola, niece, age 23, born Mar 1877 in Illinois; parents born in Ohio; single.

It is uncertain if Viola was actually the daughter of Robert & Catherine Hancher or if she might have been a granddaughter.  She was shown in the 1880 census living with Robert & Catherine Hancher, listed as "daughter".1  However Catherine would have been well past age 50 when Viola was born; additionally, Viola was shown in the 1900 census with the family of Sarah Jane Hancher, listed as "niece"2 (which would make her a granddaughter of Robert & Catherine Hancher).  She might have been the daughter of Daniel S. Hancher.3
