-Eighty-Eight Useful Years
Mrs. Rasmus Hanson Celebrates Birthday
To live in one place for fifty-five years and to be held throughout that time in affection and high esteem by an entire community, is a record which few may boast.
Grayling's Grand Old Lady, Mrs. Rasmus HANSON, reached her eighty-eighth birthday September seventh. Friends and relatives gathered at her home both afternoon and evening in celebration of the occasion.
Margrethe HANSON came to America from Denmark when she was nineteen years of age. She married Rasmus HANSON in Manistee where she lived until 1878, coming from there to Grayling.
Her guests last Thursday were much interested in her reminiscences of those early days. Nels MICHELSON described Grayling to her as "A hole in the woods" - as indeed it was, a small clearing in Michigan's magnificent tract of pine. Here she found the HARTWICKS, the ROBINSONS, the BABBITS, SHOPPENAGONS, and a few others. Shortly after came her brother John K. HANSON and her cousin Nels MICHELSON with their families.
The journey that she and her three children made to their new home required three days. The train that bore them into Grayling also carried "Aunt Becky" WIGHT, on her way to pioneer at Frederic.
All of Mrs. HANSON's five children reside in Grayling. she has seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Most of these and her god-child, Frances MICKELSON, were with her on her birthday.
Mrs. HANSON's chief interest outside her home is the Lutheran church. Enjoying good health, she still takes part in its activities.
Kindly and generous deeds have never been events in Mrs. HANSON's life. They are so much a part of her daily living that more often than not, these acts are unheralded. For the many fine things done by herself and her late husband, applause was neither invited nor expected.
Best known of their gifts is that of the michigan National Guard encampment ground, and the beautiful club house for officers. They gave the major portion of the building fund for Mercy Hospital, and their subsequent donations to this institution were many and liberal. They were the donors of Danebod. Many an unfortunate would have found life much more difficult but for the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. HANSON.
Many men now prominent in the lumber business in this and other states received their training under Mr. HANSON; and others were helped by him in acquiring education and in establishing their business.
During the war Mrs. HANSON did far more than her "bit". Her knitting needles were plied incessantly and scores of garments were sent by her to the "boys." And since that time knitting has been more than a pastime for her. Many needy, and occasionally others are made happy by her gifts of these warm things. On his recent visit to Grayling Judge Frank BELL proudly displayed a pair of fine woolen socks - the last pair to come off her needles.
During the depression when so many men have been forced to tramp the country. Mrs. HANSON has turned no one from her door. Extra food is kept in readiness for her kitchen callers. A day rarely passes that several do not ask for it. How splendid to so carry on at eighty-eight.
Many indeed are the friends and acquaintances who think of Mrs. HANSON with gratefulness in their hearts. The community is thankful for the years this good woman has spent in its midst, and all join in wishing her many more happy birthdays.
