Rasmus Hansen was born in the farming town of Knudstrup, Denmark, on the Island of Seland. It appears he lived all his life as a farmer. His farm was called Stubbegaarden, located in Alsted-Flinterup. He married not once, but twice, marrying again two years after his first wife died. He and his second wife, Maren Sofie had six children together, the eldest of which was born the year after they were married. In early 1895, when their youngest child was only three years of age, Rasmus took ill and died, leaving Maren on their farm to raise their children the best she could. Their eldest was only twelve years old.

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
