Julius Hanson, one of the leading young farmers of Hawk Creek township, was born on a farm which he now owns and operates, July 3, 1875, son of Christopher and Mary (Hegna) Hanson. He attended the district schools of the neighborhood, grew to manhood in the parental home, and learned the business of successful farming from his father. In 1901 he bought the interests of the other heirs in the old homestead of 160 acres and at once started making extensive improvements. He bought eighty acres more, thus making a splendid tract of 240 acres which he has fenced and developed in many ways. His new barn is his especial pride. Mr. Hanson is energetic, progressive and hard-working, and is one of the coming men of the community. He makes a special study of modern methods and carries on his agricultural operations along the latest approved lines. Aside from his farm interests he is a stockholder in the Granite Falls Telephone Co. Since 1910 he has ably served the township as a member of the board of supervisors. Julius Hanson was married Jan. 28, 1912, to Mrs. Hilda (Frederickson) Corbel, daughter of Martin Frederickson and the widow of Mr. Corbel, by whom she had one child, Henry, born Sept. 27, 1909.
