Biographical Sketch


Hans L. Hansen        C. Sena Hansen
    Hans L. Hansen, who owns a splendid farm of two hundred and sixty acres in Fairplain township, Montcalm county, Michigan, was born in Denmark, December 28, 1858. He is the son of L. Hansen, who spent all of his life in Denmark. Hans L. Hansen was reared in his native country and educated in the public schools, which he attended until he was fourteen years of age. He worked on the farm for his father until he was twenty-three years old, when, having saved enough money, he came to the United States, locating in Greenville, Michigan, where he worked on farms in the summer and in lumber yards in the winter. After he had been in this country for five years he purchased a farm of eighty acres and, after his marriage, purchased the place where he now lives, to which he has added until he now owns one hundred and sixty acres. Mr. Hansen can very deservedly he called a self-made man, having accumulated all of his possessions since coming to this country. Hans L. Hansen was married to Cena Hudson, who was also born in Denmark, and to this union has been born five children, Mary, Carl, Alice, Elva and Florence. All of these children are still single and living at home with their parents, and all have excellent educations. Elva being a graduate of the Greenville high school and a teacher in the public schools. Politically, Mr. Hansen is a Republican, but has never cared to take an active part in politics, preferring to devote his time and attention to his extensive farming interests.
