Hannah Pamelia Grigg was born June 20, 1889 in Loa, Wayne, Utah to Parley Mormon Grigg and Amanda Catherine Oyler. When thirteen years old, her family moved to Union County, Oregon, and six years later, she met and married Orin Harrison McClellan. In 1910, they moved to Nampa, Canyon County, Idaho, where they farmed. In 1915, they acquired an eighty-acre homestead in Dubois, Clark County, Idaho, where they lived for five years. In 1920, they returned to Oregon, only to move back to Nampa in 1921, where they kept bees, and Orin worked for U.P.R.R. Hannah nursed her aging mother for two years, until her mother's death. In 1943, Hannah and Orin took up eighty acres of sagebrush land in Vale, Oregon. Hannah died April 14, 1984.
This short one-page biography is part of Cleo Grigg Johnson Gilchrist's first book of remembrance and appears to be an excerpt from a book or magazine. Hannah is described as being a 'delicate, fair-skinned, blue-eyed blonde.' She was a patient and understanding wife and mother, who worked as a homemaker and gardener.
