Azra Lee Joines Hanna - CT & SC

Azra Lee Joines was born June 7, 1934 in Chesterfield, SC to Layton Joines and Flonnie Geneva Burch Joines. Azra was about the 13th of 16 children. I just found out about Azra a few weeks ago through the NC death certificates. Azra was my grandfather’s sister.

Azra obtained her social security number about 1952/53 in New Jersey. She married Willie Hanna in New Haven Connecticut on August 8, 1964. Azra was 30 and Willie was 37. I do not know if this was the first marriage for the two of them.

Azra and Willie were on a highway in Durham, NC and were in a car accident. The death certificate states that they were passing a car and ran off the road. Azra was a passenger in the car. I do not know who else was in the car. Azra and Willie were living in New Have, CT at the time of the accident. Their address at the time was 62 Odgen St in New Haven. Azra suffered multiple fractures and died from cardiac arrest at Watts Hospital in Durham.

I do not know if Willie and Azra had children. I did not find Willie Hanna in the CT death index. Willie would be about 81 years old being born about 1927. I found a Willie Hanna in New Haven through one of the people search engines. I’m checking to see if I can find an address for that one. All the other Willie Hannas that I find are white.

Has anyone ever heard of a Hanna family from New Haven, CT? Does any of this story sound familiar to anyone? Please note that all the information that I have provided above came from records that include: NC Death certificates, CT Death Index, SSDI, CT marriages. I have all of the information from those records.

So, if there are any Hannas from CT with connections to SC, I would love to hear from you.
