    • Hans Peter Hansen was born January 4, 1866 in Richfield, Sevier County, Utah. His arrival was an event for the city as well as for his parents, Hans Olsen Hansen and Martha Mortensen. He was the first baby born in this settlement and the first child of his parents. They had waited many years for him as his mother was 38 years old and his father 36 years old. A cellar was serving as a temporary abode for the family at the time and while his mother was still in bed (Hans was only three days old) a flood swept that section of town. Red thickened
      waters rushed into the cellar and lifted kettles and pans to its surface and rocked them about. The water reached the depth of the bed and had to be dipped out with buckets.

      Hans Peter went to Emma Johnson's school held in her home on Second West
      and Center Street. Later he went to Ustlen and Shotman in the Academy Hall between Center Street and First

      South on Second West. “In February, 1865, the first school house was built within the walls of the fort, on the southwest corner of the town square. It was a rock
      structure with a roof of willows and dirt. It faced west and had two windows and a door in the west side. Slab seats and a big fireplace were found inside. The pulpit was on the north side. As soon as it was completed, the building was opened with a two-day celebration, including a dance, program of speeches and music.” Golden Sheaves from a Rich Field, pg. 19.

      When he was just a young man he and a group were going Eastering. Hans was driving the team to be used for the trip. The team ran away and dashed into a fence. Hans jumped and broke his ankle. Due to unskilled medical aid he was bedfast for months and walked with a limp thereafter.

      This altered his life considerably. But most, I believe, he regretted having to be released from a mission to which he had been called. The injury made it impossible for him to do the necessary walking of a missionary in those days so he had to
      accept an honorable release from his call. As he was a serious-minded man and
      imbued with a religious sense, he served his church in other ways.

      His first trade was harness making. He learned this from O. P. Borg under whom he worked for some time without pay. As he was a conscientious worker, salary raises came to him as the years went by. He and his brother David started a shop of their own just east off Main on First South. Hans made and repaired harnesses and Dave worked with shoes. During dull seasons Hans worked for Chris Hansen at Elsinore, Utah. Due to difficulties they only kept the shop two years and then Hans went back with Mr. Borg. In A Chronological History of Humans and Their Relationship With the Horse, Chapter 4B, it states: “The harness maker was a valued member of the community in the 1800s. He was kept busy providing new harnesses to his many customers, as well as repairing and reconditioning used harnesses.Hans Peter married Maggie M. Christensen April 26, 1899 at the age of 33. She was 20. They were married in the Manti Temple. She was the daughter of Lars Peter Christensen and Ane Marie (Mary) Petersen. Hans’ parents and Maggie’s father and his first wife had all been on the same ship, the Monarch of the Sea, when they immigrated from Denmark and had also all been in the same Samuel Woolley handcart company.

      After they were married, Hans and Maggie moved to their home in the north eastern part of town which they had beforehand purchased and furnished. Later they purchased and moved to a home on Second South and Second East so he would be closer to his work.

      They became the parents of two daughters, Printha Verda, born May 7, 1900, and Elda, born two years later on June 21, 1902. They were the delight of his life. Often they would run up to the corner to meet him as he walked home from work. He would sit Printha on his
      shoulders and Elda in his arms and carry them home.

      He was particular in regards to his church
      duties. They went to church regularly and he was prompt in
      doing his ward teaching.

      Although traveling was a tedious task, during the six years of his married life, he and Maggie went to Manti twice to do work in the temple. The trips were made with a white topped buggy and a large black team. It was a long day's drive. They would work three days and then return home.

      Hans was fond of music. He played an "alto horn" in the band and a snare drum in the martial band with Jim Barlow. While recuperating from his broken ankle he learned to play
      an accordion and after played for many dances with Sam Wilkinson.

      He loved to dance, and although he was lame, he always rejoiced when others did.
