Joseph F. Hanis, who is farming two hundred acres of excellent land on section 36, Elk precinct, was born in
Bohemia on the 15th of July, 1866. He is a son of Joseph and Barbara Hanis, who came with their family to the United
States in 1875 and settled in Saunders county, Nebraska, where the father bought school land at seven dollars an
acre. He died in 1895.
Joseph F. Hanis was about nine years of age when the family home was established in this county and the greater
part of his education was acquired in the public schools of Elk precinct. During the summer months he aided his
father in the operation of the homestead and on reaching mature years decided to follow the occupation to which
he had been reared. As soon as he had accumulated sufficient capital he purchased eighty acres of land, which he
at once began cultivating, and in time he bought additional land so that he now has two hundred acres. He raises
a large number of hogs and cattle and also grows the usual crops and derives a good income from both branches of
his business. His farm is well improved and his residence is one of the attractive farm homes of the locality.
On the 11th of February, 1896, Mr. Hauls was married to Miss Agnes Jambor, a daughter of Joseph and Frances Jamboree,
and to this union have been born four children, all of whom are at home, Mary, Lumila, Gertrude and Joseph.
Mr. Hanis casts his ballot in support of the men and measures of the democratic party, whose policies he believes
to be based upon a thorough understanding of the needs of the country. The rules which guide his life are found
in the teachings of the Roman Catholic church, of which he is a communicant, and his personal qualities are such
that he has won both the respect and the warm regard of those who have been associated with him
