Mr. Hanes has a farm of seventy acres where he lives, on which, and on another farm of fifty-three acres close by, he has made such improvements as to cause him to be regarded as one of the representative farmers of his township. He and his family are members of the German Reformed Church. In politics he is a Democrat.
