Table of Contents

Family

He was the oldest of six children and Had only a grade school education.

His father died when he was about 14 years old, this was very hard for his mother and small children to be left without the support of a father. This put quite a responsibility on the oldest son. They had a small farm, horses, implements etc, and he did the best he could to carry on with the farm work, and wood hauling. It was hard for his mother. She took in washing and ironing -- any kind of work she could get to take care of her family. She did very well although it was sometimes hard to get food and clothes, they were always clothed pretty well. She could sew, mend and patch to perfection and her family looked as nice and well cared for as others blessed with more means. Her family grew up to be good and useful men and women.

Amasa worked for them until he married Minnie Olsen on May 31, 1899

Work

We had our family as this record shows. He was always a hard working man. He did all he could to provide for our large family.

The first years he had a big farm. He had some city work such as running the city sprinkler wagon and was city road supervisor. He also worked in the mines in Nevada. He worked for six or seven years as a blacksmith helper in the shops at McGill Nevada.

In 1927 we moved from Richfield to Salt Lake City. Then the depression came -- mines and mills closed down and he was thrown out of work as so many others were and he came home. He took what work he could get and with the help of the boys we got along quite well.

Through over lifting he got a hernia and wa advised to have an operation. It seemed successful and he was taken home from the hospital after ten days. After he was taken home he was stricken with a heart attack (blood clot). He died Oct 9th 1933.

This was a hard blow to us all. I was left with 10 children. Five were married and five were at home.

He was a good husband and father -- honest and hard working. All who knew him respected him, he had many friends. He had no bad habits and lived only for his family and they showed him love and respect and are trying to follow his good example. His father (Hans Hansen) was born Dec 10, 1851 --Died July 25, 1892. His mother Fanny Hunt Hansen was born Feb 28, 1860 --Died Dec 10, 1936.
