HANSON, HANSEN, FREDRICKSEN
I am looking for information on the migration of the HANSON / FREDRICKSEN family of Denmark, who settled in Minnesota in 1860. Hans Jorge HANSON, b 1853, with his wife, Mary FREDRICKSEN, b 1851 moved to Potter County SD in about 1883 with 2 children. Other family members stayed in Lemond township area of Steele County, Minnesota. A brother Jens/James HANSON of Steele County may have married a JOHNSON girl during the mid 1880ís.  


 

If you can identify any of the people in the following photos, or help date or place them, please email webmaster and the information will be forwarded to the interested person.  

"I believe the family in these photos to have the same surname that we are searching. That surname is Zentner. However, I can't identify them or the age of the photo. My 2nd great-grandparents John M. Zentner (b. 1849, d. 1918) and Minnie Kerbach Zentner (b. 1847, d. 1894) moved to Madison in the late 1800s.
