Territorial Women's Memorial Rose Garden
HANNAH ROBERTS HARTIN
Hannah was born in Wales on July 8, 1857, the daughter of Edward Isaac Roberts. The family moved away to other countries a few years later.

From Australia, she came to Arizona with the Grizzly Callen party. On December 13, 1877, in Prescott, she married John Hartin, who had a blacksmith shop on Walnut Creek. Their home and business on the southeast corner of Gurley and McCormick streets were centers of hospitality and always open for meals and lodging to any needy person.

In 1893, the home and part of the blacksmith shop were destroyed by fire.

Hannah's and John's children were Henry (1878), Mattie Haggott (1880), Edward (1882), Robert (1885), Jennie (1886), Maggie (1888), John (1891), Nancy (1893), Homer (1895) and Joseph.

Her stepmother, Jane Roberts, is also represented in the Rose Garden.

Hannah died on February 17, 1922, and was buried in the Citizens Cemetery.
