During the 1800's, the name "Hanna," reportedly Scotch-Irish, appeared in many states throughout the U.S. But the name was an uncommon one in early Mississippi. According to the U. S. Census of 1820, there were two individuals with the name "Hanna" living in Mississippi. James Hanna was enumerated in Amite County, Mississippi, and Josiah Hanna was counted in Warren County. By 1930, Hanna family members living in Mississippi numbered over 300.
