Mrs. Julia Hanson One of Few Great Great Grandmother in the State

A stroke, suffered on the 80th birthday, resulted in death to Mrs. Julia Anderson Hanson, one of Clay County's oldest pioneers in point of residence.
Mrs. Hanson passed away at her home on West Main Street at 10:30 Sunday evening from the effects of a stroke the preceding Thursday. Funeral services will be held at the home here at 1:00 o'clock Wednesday afternoon and at 2:00 o'clock at the Bergen Lutheran Church. The Elmore funeral
service will have charge of the interment at the cemetery, two miles north of the Bergen Lutheran Church.
Mrs. Hanson was a life-long member of the Bergen Lutheran Church and was a member of the first class to be confirmed there. Mrs. Hanson's death broke up one of the few families in the state, and the nation as well, in which there were five generations living. She had been a
great-great-grandmother for some time.
Julia Anderson was born October 29, 1856, at Lacrosse, Wisconsin, and came to what was then Dakota Territory with her parents when only four years old and had resided here ever since. When they first arrived here and settled
just west of Vermillion, they were one of the first families to settle in that section and suffered all the hardships usual to that day and age on the
unsettled prairie. At that time the Indians still considered themselves as the owners of this state and were frequent visitors, both friendly and otherwise, to the Anderson home.
In 1872 she was married to Elling Hanson, of this community, who passed away November 17, 1926. During the latter years of their lives they made their home on West Main Street. Since his death, Mrs. Hanson had made her home with her son, Oliver, on West Main here, and with a daughter at Centerville, Iowa. She had just returned from a visit with the daughter a week before her death.
There were 12 children born to Mr. and Mrs. Hanson, seven of whom passed away in infancy. Surviving are two daughters and three sons. They are Mrs. A. C. Anderson and Oliver Hanson, both of Vermillion, George, of Sioux
City, Alfred of Vermillion, and Mrs. Frank Vickrey, of Centerville, IA. Twenty-nine grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild also survive. Burial 2 miles North of Bergen Lutheran Church in
Vermillion, South Dakota, Meckling Cemetery.
