LIFE SKETCH OF HANS ALFRED HANSEN AND ELIZABETH LOURENE WEBB Jorgen Peter Hansen was born July 11, 1850 in Osterlarsker, Bornholm, Denmark to Hans Jorgen Jensen and Karen Marie Mortensen. He was baptized January 20, 1878 by N. R. Peterson, and was confirmed the same day. He was rebaptized on July 31, 1881 by E. F. Granting, and confirmed the same day. He was ordained a Seventy on April 23 1884 by John Clark. He moved into the Draper Ward on October 12, 1884. Jorgen took for his third wife Annie Margrethe Matilda Jocumsen on August 4, 1887 in the Salt Lake Endowment House. Annie was the daughter of Hans Jocumsen and Maren Petersdatter Christensen. Annie was born on August 17, 1867 in Falster, Lolland, Denmark or Westerborg, Maribo, Denmark. She was baptized on February 25, 1878 in Osterholt, Denmark in the icy water. A hole had to be cut in the ice to baptize her. She was rebaptized August 5, 1886. In 1884, she came to Utah and it was there that she married Jorgen Peter. Later she became a Midwife. Hans Alfred was born on December 12, 1890 in Draper, Utah. He was blessed on January 1, 1891 by Willard Jensen. He was the second child and first son of Jorgen Peter and Annie Matilda. Hans Alfred was baptized by Elder George P. Garff and confirmed by P. P. Sorensen on August 13, 1899 in Draper, Utah. He was ordained a Teacher in December 1906 by P. C. Rasmussen. He had one brother, who died young, and three sisters. They are: Agnes Matilda May 31, 1888; Myrtle Olivia May 26, 1896; Lawrence Martin October 7, 1898; Lenora Margaret September 10, 1903. On March 1, 1909, Jorgen Peter died and left Annie to raise her family by herself. Alfred, at 18, ran the small farm they lived on. In 1915 or December 15, 1918, they moved to American Fork, Utah at 217 South Center Street. George Henry Webb was born on April 12, 1865 to William Rawlings Webb and Martha Careless in London, England. He was baptized on June 24, 1873 and married Mary Elizabeth Spratley in the Logan Temple on December 10, 1890. Mary Elizabeth Spratley was born July 10, 1868 to James Spratley and Mary Elizabeth Okey in American Fork, Utah. She was baptized August 26, 1874. Elizabeth Lourene was their first child. She was born on March 15, 1892 in American Fork, Utah, and was blessed May 2, 1892 by William Rawlings Webb. She had one brother and two sisters. They are as follows: Martha Luella February 25, 1894; Ethel June 14, 1899 she died in August of the same year, John Henry September 30, 1909. Lourene was baptized on July 10, 1900 by Steven L. Chipman in the Old Science Hall in American Fork, Utah. She was confirmed by her father, George Henry Webb. She attended American Fork City schools to the eighth grade. Her mother was a midwife so Lourene always took care of her brother and sisters. Her parents were quite strict so they were raised knowing what they could and couldn't do. They were taught to be hard workers; Lourene demonstrated this when she was married. Lourene's father, George Henry, died on February 9, 1944. Her mother, Mary Elizabeth, died on August 12, 1950. When Alfred proposed to Lourene, they were on a date up American Fork Canyon, and they were both sitting on a limb over the river. Now isn't that romantic? They were endowed, married, and sealed for time and all eternity,in the Salt Lake Temple on December 9, 1914 by Alvin F. Smith. After they were married, Alfred sold insurance and did odd jobs as a handyman to support his family. He worked on the bridge gang on the inter-urban railroad going from Salt Lake to Payson. He also worked on the old cement highway 91 around Mona. He lived in Draper when he was courting Lourene. He later became a Building Contractor and owned his business along with his sons. He was a very good carpenter and fixed a lot of things around the house to make it more comfortable. They moved in with Annie Matilda Jocumsen Hansen on 217 South Center Street, after they had been married for a while. They took care of Annie Matilda for many years until she died on November 16, 1955. They had five children all in American Fork. There are four sons and one daughter. They are as follows: Howard Webb November 29, 1917; Lawrence "W" October 9, 1921; Earl "W" April 16, 1925; Arthur "W" (my dad) November 10, 1928; and Mary LaPriel July 26, 1932. Alfred and Lourene loved their children very much and they gave all the time and love they could to them. Alfred was mild-natured and loved to tell stories. He was always happy and loved to play basketball. He liked having the grandchildren around and always had candy in his dresser drawer to give them. He was also an avid lover of roses and grew a lot of them in his flower garden; he also loved to hunt and was quite good at it. Lourene taught a third grade Primary class for awhile. She has been a Relief Society Visiting Teacher to the different districts for over 14 years. She took a class in genealogy and she has been to the Archives in Little Cottonwood Canyon . She has done some work for the dead in the Salt Lake Temple and she also did work in the Manti Temple with Brother and Sister Don Bean, and Brother and Sister Shumway of American Fork. Lourene was a quiet woman but she loved to tell stories about Herself, Alfred, and their children; she also love having her grandchildren stay over for the night or longer. She was always kind to the people that came to her door and would always try to help them in some way. She always kept her house looking very neat, and clean. She was always sewing on something, usually quilts, and has made many beautiful quilts and other handmade articles, including crocheting and embroidery. She was a great cook and always bottled delicious fruits and vegetables, jams and jellies, and she always made pies and cakes. Both her and Alfred loved a good big breakfast. I don't know how they ate all that they would fix. I certainly couldn't eat all they put before me at breakfast, it was so much! Alfred and Lourene loved to grow things, they had a nice big flower garden, and behind that there was a big fruit and vegetable garden. They liked animals, and always had plenty of cats around the house (outside of course!) I loved going over there and always found a new batch of kittens, because I love kittens. They also liked to tease the grandchildren a lot. Sometimes they would clack their false teeth at the kids to scare them.. I remember one time they scared Vickie half out of her wits. She ran screaming down the hall and into the bedroom. It was so funny and I laughed so hard. They have lived in Draper, Mona, Salt Lake City, Provo, Park City, and American Fork, not necessarily in that order. When they lived in Mona, Howard was five years old and Lawrence was one year old. They liked to camp in their trailer house and have traveled to different states in the United States and to Old Mexico. One of their favorite pastimes was playing Canasta with Fern and Elmer Chipman; Oh, how they loved to play that game! They would let us kids join in too! Another favorite pastime was watching TV, their most favorite program being "Lawrence Welk", which was an hour of music. They both were lovers of music. They also enjoyed watching "Gunsmoke", which is a western program. They loved the Church very much and went as much as they could. Lourene once had an organ which she loved to play, but her father gave the organ to the church, because they were in need of one. Just before Lourene died, she was ill for some time and was operated on (we were never told what the illness was), but she died soon after Congestive Heart Failure, Pneumonia, and Cancer. She died on April 22, 1969 in American Fork and was buried on April 26, 1969 in the American Fork Cemetery. Alfred and Lourene argued all the time (the trademark of the Hansen Brothers!) and when she died. he missed her tremendously. One night while he was staying at Lawrence and Marilyn's he was talking to someone for a long time in the middle of the night. The next morning he told Marilyn that Lourene had come and talked to him for quite a while. He must have started arguing with her about something, because she said she didn't want him and wouldn't come for him if he didn't stop arguing with her. He was just heartbroken to think Lourene didn't want him if he argued and tears just rolled down his face because he felt so bad. From then on, he started going downhill. and before he died, he had gangrene in his legs and possibly elsewhere and he had to have part of his legs amputated. He was ill for about a year and finally died on December 6, 1971 in American Fork and was buried December 9 1971 in the American Fork Cemetery.

Times were hard during the depression years and he took whatever jobs were available to help care for his family. About the beginning of World War II he and his boys began sub-contracting on shingling roofs, later they formed their own company, H. Alfred Hansen and Sons, and began building homes. He enjoyed hunting and fishing. After he retired he and Lourene traveled a great deal, especially in the winter months to Arizona, California and Mexico where he enjoyed deep sea fishing. His grandchildren looked forward to going to Grandpa's home to see him because he always made such a fuss over them and he always had candy for them which he kept in his dresser drawer and whenever the grandchildren went to his home they would stand by the dresser waiting for grandpa to come and give them some candy.

Rhubarb Days

Contributor: rhonda.lou.002 Created: 11 months ago Updated: 5 months ago

Looking out in the corner of our little garden, I see the elephant ears of a rhubarb plant. Rhubarb brings back memories of long ago and both sets of my grandparents. It reminds me of luscious pies and rhubarb stewed with generous amounts of sugar eaten plain or over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. When I was in my pre-teen years, my Grandma and Grandpa Hansen would let me pick the rhubarb from their plentiful garden. My mother would help me clean and tie it into bundles with string. Then I would load it into my wagon and take it door to door in our neighborhood and sell it for my own spending money. My Grandma and Grandpa Johnson who lived on a small farm in Springville, Utah also grew rhubarb. My grandma made the most delicious rhubarb pies. Her recipe has been passed down several generations until my daughter, Tamma and her husband, Glen now make the rhubarb pies for Mother’s Day gatherings. My rhubarb comes from a start from my Grandpa Johnson’s plants on the ditch bank of his home in American Fork, which came from his garden in Springville. It’s my Heritage Rhubarb.

Life timeline of H. Alfred Hansen

H. Alfred Hansen was born on 12 Dec 1890
H. Alfred Hansen was 13 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
H. Alfred Hansen was 21 years old when The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two hours and forty minutes after hitting an iceberg. Only 710 of 2,227 passengers and crew on board survive. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
H. Alfred Hansen was 39 years old when The New York Stock Exchange crashes in what will be called the Crash of '29 or "Black Tuesday", ending the Great Bull Market of the 1920s and beginning the Great Depression. The New York Stock Exchange, is an American stock exchange located at 11 Wall Street, Lower Manhattan, New York City, New York. It is by far the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies at US$21.3 trillion as of June 2017. The average daily trading value was approximately US$169 billion in 2013. The NYSE trading floor is located at 11 Wall Street and is composed of 21 rooms used for the facilitation of trading. A fifth trading room, located at 30 Broad Street, was closed in February 2007. The main building and the 11 Wall Street building were designated National Historic Landmarks in 1978.
H. Alfred Hansen was 49 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.
H. Alfred Hansen was 55 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
H. Alfred Hansen was 65 years old when Disneyland Hotel opens to the public in Anaheim, California. The Disneyland Hotel is a resort hotel located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, owned by the Walt Disney Company and operated through its Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products division. Opened on October 5, 1955, as a motor inn owned and operated by Jack Wrather under an agreement with Walt Disney, the hotel was the first to officially bear the Disney name. Under Wrather's ownership, the hotel underwent several expansions and renovations over the years before being acquired by Disney in 1988. The hotel was downsized to its present capacity in 1999 as part of the Disneyland Resort expansion.
H. Alfred Hansen was 79 years old when During the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.
H. Alfred Hansen died on 6 Dec 1971 at the age of 81
