Just an avenue to check on. The only John ANSON found in NJ was 1806 & 1816 Randolph Twp, Morris Co NJ Tax Lists.He is not there 1820, which would line up with him being in Clinton Co OH 1820.When he sold his NJ property Hannah would have to give consent, so you would at least know if this is the right John. I know this doesn't help locate Hanna's maiden name, but perhaps the Morris Co Gen Soc can assist.If you know the names of all the children, you might want to locate biographies [for all] in Co. history books. Use GOOGLE BOOK ADVANCED SEARCH. No mention in Clinton Co History, or Wabash Co IN Also avail yourself of familysearch.org....great site.
