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.
