Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from the WSGS Blog.

This is a postcard to my grandmother Anna (Dillingham) Hansen from Allie. Allie is Alice Costello (DeRemer) Hansen, wife of Peter Hansen, the older brother to my grandfather Anton Hansen. Peter was the first of five Hansen brothers to come to Austin Minnesota from Denmark in the 1880s. Four of the brothers never left Minnesota, but my grandfather was the one that went west, first to Columbus Montana and then to Blanchard Idaho.

Anna’s Dillingham family came to New England in 1632, and they were Quakers. They later married into six Mayflower families, Alden, Cooke, Doty, Hopkins, Mullins, and Soule.

    What a wonderful gift to have an old post card from your ancestors!

    I just received an email from a cousin in Bratislava. It is a recipe from her grandmother for poppy seed cake. Can’t wait to try it.

    May you have a wonderful day!
