Hans and Maren were natives of Vetterslev parish in Sorø County, where they married in November of 1884. After the birth of four children they decided to emigrate, arriving in the US on May 23, 1893, and coming directly to Blooming Prairie, Minnesota, where they spent the rest of their lives. Hans worked as a carpenter and farmed as well. Three more children were born to the couple, all living to adulthood.
