FORMER LOCAL MAN PASSES IN ALASKA Hans Hanson Who Sailed on Sch. John Schuette Across Sea is Dead Hans Hanson, former Manitowoc man and a son of Jasper Hanson, Manitowoc's pioneer ship builder, died in Alaska December 6, according to word received from his brother, W. M. Hanson. The funeral was held at Ketchikan, Alaska, under the auspices of the local Igloo of the Pioneers of Alaska of which deceased was a member. Mr. Hanson was about seventy-five years of age when he was called to his final rest and only the old residents here will recollect him. He was a sailor on the lakes and when the Schooner John Schuette was taken to the ocean he was a member of the crew. On the first trip across Brooks, a captain from Racine, was in command with a man by the name of Johnson from this city as navigator. After the return to this country Brooks and Johnson both left the craft to return to their home and Hanson continued to sail the boat for many trips, making one trip to Gloucester with turpentine and another trip to London with rosin. Later he drifted to Alaska and it was there he was overtaken in his cabin near Niblack by a stroke of paralysis. He was discovered by a neighbor and rushed to the hospital at Ketchikan but died the next day. He is survived by two sisters and a brother, Mrs. Elizabeth Gregg of Anaheim, California and another sister whose name is not known here and the brother, W. M. Hanson at Butte, Montana. Mr. Hanson was never married. Manitowoc Herald News, pg. 1, 12-16-1927
