In 1890 he married Salome B. Budlong, daughter of Gideon Budlong, one of Lafargeville's most substantial and respected citizens. Mrs. Hansen's grandfather, Captain Peter P. Folts, was among the earliest settlers and was a soldier in the American army during 1812, and participated in the defense of the State of New York against the invasion of the British forces at Sacket Harbor sent to devastate this part of the country. Mrs. Hansen is related to many of the most prominent and wealthy families in Jefferson county. Mr. Hansen, besides the fine residence he occupies as a home, is also the owner of the Victhor House in Lafargeville, which he erected in 1894.
