Birth: 1826, Germany
Death: Feb. 17, 1887
Sac County
Iowa, USA

Hans and his family immigrated to America in 1870. In 1874 he purchased land in Wall Lake township from the Northwestern Railway Co for $5.60 per acre. This farm has been owned and operated by member of the Wollesen family ever since.

Hans combined his ability as a farmer with a skill in repairing clocks for neighbors and friends. In return he was paid with a bottle of wine or food. The services of a jeweler were hard to come by in those days.

Hans and his wife, Maria Claussen, had 4 children: Peter, John, Nicholas, and Catherine.
