Jan P. Tonnessen from Norway sent this BEAUTIFUL family
portrait in for the website. He said that the photograph came from his
mother-in-law and up until recently, they didn't
have information on the identity of this family. Jan
believes this is the Peter Hanson
family. They came to America in from Nes Romerike to Oconto, Wisconsin in 1878.
In 1880 the family relocated to Green Valley Twp, Shawano County.
Back from left: Hilda 1882, Helmer 1885, Victor 1887 and
Ole Martin 1880
Front from left: Thea 1848, Charlotte 1890 and Peter 1853.
Can someone confirm
that this is right family?
And thanks Jan, for the gorgeous photograph for the site. You can contact
Jan directly with information at
