Sympathy Saturday – Theresa Assmann Hanson

Theresa Assmann Hanson died November 20, 1914.  Her married name of “Hanson” has been spelled a variety of ways so I am unsure of the proper spelling.  Theresa was the last of her family to die.  After she married Peter they moved to the upper peninsula of Michigan and seemed to move about a lot.  Peter died first in 1890.  Theresa moved to St. Ignace, Mackinac, Michigan where she remained until she died.  Her maiden name is spelled “Ossman” though I am sure that is how it was pronounced.  (3rd great-grandaunt)
