Franklin Hahn

(1809-1866). Physician of Canandaigua, New York, president of the village corporation, and secretary of the Ontario County Medical Society, and a Millerite. As a good Bible student he joined Crosier and Edson in intensive study of the sanctuary doctrine in the winter of 1844-1845. It was at his house that Crosier wrote out their joint findings on the subject. Hahn published the Day-Dawn (which Crosier edited) in 1845, and in 1846, with Edson, financed the Day-Star Extra containing Crosier’s article. He accepted the Sabbath with Edson, but by 1851 he had apparently reverted to the Sundaykeeping majority.
