Birth: Mar. 10, 1877
Bern, Switzerland
Death: Aug. 31, 1953
Livingston County
Illinois, USA

One of thirteen children of Johannas and Maria Grodel Anliker, he came to America with his family in the summer of 1891.

He lived a year in Missouri and a year in Iowa. He returned to Sibley, Illinois where in February, 1902 he married Teba von Brethorst of Anchor, IL.

In 1904 the couple purchased a farm four miles east of Sibley where they spent their lives and raised five children.

In Dec. 1908 a disastrous fire destroyed their farm home and nearly killed Hans' mother. But Teba saved her and neighbors helped them rebuild the house and also a new crib and a barn.

Hans was an outstandng yodeler. As he trudged behind his horsedrawn implements planting or harvesting, his happy Swiss yodel could be heard across the fields and was enjoyed by all neighbors. He was a favorite caller for local weekly square dances.
