It is proven that if $G$ is a $3$-connected claw-free graph which is also $Z_3$-free (where $Z_3$ is a triangle with a path of length $3$ attached), $P_6$-free (where $P_6$ is a path with $6$ vertices) or $H_1$-free (where $H_1$ consists of two disjoint triangles connected by an edge), then $G$ is Hamiltonian-connected. Also, examples will be described that determine a finite family of graphs $\cal{L}$ such that if a 3-connected graph being claw-free and $L$-free implies $G$ is Hamiltonian-connected, then $L\in\cal{L}$.
