    • Hans fought in the war between Denmark and Austria. When the other two brothers, Christian and Lars, were nearing the age of 21 according to the laws of Denmark, would automatically be drafted into the army. They did not wish to go into the army so with their brother Hans they skipped over to America with a group of Latter-day Saint immigrants.

    • Not much is known of his early life except he was taught to work and be honest in his dealings. He was a storekeeper at an early age, but as the law required all young men to join the army, he enlisted. During 1848 to 1850, Hans served in the war between Denmark and Germany and received a medal from King Frederick III for his outstanding service.
      When the other two brothers, Christian and Lars, were nearing the age of 21 according to the laws of Denmark, would automatically be drafted into the army. They did not wish to go into the army so with their brother Hans they skipped over to America with a group of Latter-day Saint immigrants.

      On 16 May 1861 (Hans Olsen and Martha Mortensen) sailed from Liverpool with 955 members of the Church bound for America on the ship “Monarch of the Sea.” Preparatory for the voyage, three members were placed in charge: Hans O. Hansen, Jabez Woodward, and Niels Wilhelmsen. Their ship arrived in New York 19(16 is the correct date) June 1861 having spent 31 days on the ocean. In the fall of the same year, Hans and Martha crossed the plains under the leadership of Bishop Woolley, both walking all the way. They remained in Little Cottonwood only a short time as they were advised by President Brigham Young to move to South Bend, Sanpete County. In 1864 they joined twelve other families and moved to Richfield, driving an ox team and were among the first to settle there. Their first child, Hans Peter Hanse, was born 4 Jan 1866. On account of trouble with the Indians, they came back to Little Cottonwood and remained for four years. Another son, David Hansen, was born 21 July 1870. In the fall of 1870, President Brigham Young advised them to return to Richfield.
      Under the leadership of Joseph A. Young, the people were given the privilege to take up land. The men worked hard to get the irrigation system started to water their crops, digging canals and ditches with only pick and shovels. The crops looked fine, but hordes of grasshoppers moved in on the field and consumed every living spear of grain. The people did everything they could to combat this enemy, but they were helpless. The crops were a total loss and the settlers were reduced to near starvation. It was this winter that the Hansen family lived entirely on potatoes and molasses. Hans in a joking way would say, “Well, what’s for supper?” knowing full well it would be potatoes and molasses. The story is told that they were so hungry for meat that Hans traded his wife’s wedding ring for a piece of pork the size of his two hands.
      Martha would rather accompany Hans into the field and help grub brush than stay at home in their little dugout, as she was fearful of the Indians. In 1874 they drove an ox team to Salt Lake City, Utah to get their citizenship papers which were important to them. The trip took them three weeks.
      Hans was not prominent in civic affairs, but was always ready to do his part. He was honest in his dealings and enjoyed the respect and esteem of his family and friends. He died 3 July 1912 at the age of 84 years, in Richfield, Sevier, Utah.
