Birth: Jul. 1, 1852
Hordaland fylke, Norway
Death: Mar. 24, 1938
Hyde County
South Dakota, USA

Hans Peder Aasby, one of the pioneer homesteaders of Hyde County, South Dakota, was born July 1, 1852 in Bergen, Norway to Peder O. Aasby and his first wife, Brita. Hans had completed his military obligation and had gone through an unsuccessful business venture before deciding to come to America. He, along with his future wife, Helga Olson and two of her sisters had sailed together, arriving at Port Huron, Michigan, May 29, 1881.

Family bio in Hyde Heritage states that he and Helga were married in Minneapolis April 17, 1886. Afterwards, Helga remained in Minnesota with her sisters, while Hans continued west to Loomis Twp., Hyde County, South Dakota, and built a sod house for his new wife.

Their first five children were born in the sod house. In 1894, the family moved to a tree claim, less than a mile west of their sod house. In 1898, they moved just a little farther north because of a better well. This is where they reared the rest of their family and spent their years prior to moving to Highmore in 1928.

Nine children reached adulthood. *No mention of who or how many did not.

Helga died in July of 1935, and Hans died March 24, 1938.
