Emmord Hanson of Edgewood, Maryland

Updated August 26, 2008

About Our Family Research


Family life is full of major and minor crises -- the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce -- and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul.
- Thomas Moore

The history of Emmord Hanson and his ancestors and decendants is both ordinary and remarkable. It began with courageous immigrants who took the bold step of leaving everything they knew for a new and am uncertain life. It was punctuated by war, epidemic, the Great Depression, and every other event that shaped the 20th century. Through it all Emmord Hanson remained a calm, hardworking, and determined farmer. He never expected a life of ease and he never got one. He used to say he'd rather wear out than rust out. In the end he wore out but only after a long and honorable life. This research is a tribute to a fine man whose good name meant more to him than riches and to his children who honored him with the lives they led.
