Albert Hansen was born in July 1751. He was a younger son of Albany natives Isaac and Maria Bradt Hansen. His father died in 1758 and his mother raised a large family their modest third ward home. Two brothers also became Albany residents. Widow Hansen died in 1790.
We seek information on his work record.
Even though his name did not appear in the minutes of Albany's wartime organizations, we expect to find Revolutionary war-related information for this individual. Afterward, he was alotted a land bounty right in conjunction with the Albany militia regiment.
In 1787, he served as chimney viewer for the second ward.
These Hansens lived on Pearl Street either with or near Albert's mother and brothers. In 1788, Albert's second ward home was valued moderately on the assessment roll. In 1790, his household included five people. A decade later, three men and a young woman were living in his home.
Albert Hansen probably died shortly thereafter.
