  "BART HANSELMAN. A new flag has been added to those of our country during the past couple of years and it hung in the windows of homes all over the land while those whom the service stars represented  were serving in the different branches of the army and navy during the great war. Although the majority of these flags are now carefully stored away among the precious mementoes of the families to whom they belonged, the boys being happily so many of them back on our own shores, they will never be forgotten or what they represent held in light esteem. Steuben County sent the very flower of its young manhood to France to do battle against a common enemy, and its soldiers of this war rank with those of the old soldiers of the Civil war still answering to roll call in the flesh. One of the patriotic families who is proud of the fact that one went out from their home in response to the call of the Government is that bearing the name of Hanselman, of whom Bart Hanselman is one of the prosperous farmers of Otsego Township.
  Bart Hanselman was born in Pleasant Township, Steuben County, Indiana, in the City of Angola, September 25, 1865, a son of John Q. and Margaret (Kankamp) Hanselman, and grandson of Aaron and Christina (Read) Hanselman, natives of Pennsylvania, who became pioneers of Steuben County, locating in Steuben Township at a very early day and developing a valuable farm from the wilderness. Their children  were as follows: John Q., George, Lynn, Elizabeth, Eliza, David, Peter, Daniel and Lewis.
  John Q. Hanselman was born in Columbiana County, Ohio, January 25, 1836, and he died January 19, 1918, in Otsego Township. His wife was born at Bremen, Germany, April 4, 1841 and died in Otsego Township, June 17, 1907. She was a daughter of John and Lucile Kankamp. In young manhood John Q. Hanselman was engaged in teaming from Waterloo to Angola but later bought 140 acres of land on section 5, Otsego Township. After the death of his wife he lived at the home of his son Clarence Hanselman, but died at the home of his son Bart. Their children were as follows: Florence, who died in childhood; Bart, whose name heads this review; Lillie, who married Harvey Harman; Morton; and Clarence.
  Bart Hanselman attended the local schools of Otsego Township and grew up amid healthy surroundings, learning to be useful on his father's farm. On December 24, 1890, he was united in marriage wit Jennie McMillan, born in Scott Township, Steuben County, a daughter of George and Margaret Jane (Magers) McMillan, the former born in Livona, Cattaraugus County, New York, March 7, 1831, and the latter born in Marion County, Ohio, March 23, 1832. The paternal grandfather of Mrs. Hanselman, John McMillan, came to Steuben County, Indiana about 1836, and was one of the first settlers of Scott Township, there entering eighty acres of wild land, on which he spent the remainder of his life. His children were as follows: Jane, Mary, Annania, George and John. George McMillan became a farmer of Scott Township owning forty acres of land, on which he lived practically all of his life. He died in 1904, his widow surviving him until February 24, 1916. Their children were as follows: Elva, Melvin, Olive and Jennie. The mother of Mrs. Hanselman, Margaret Jane (Magers) McMillan, was the daughter of Peter and Elizabeth (Ramsey) Magers. Peter Magers located in Scott Township in 1836, there entering land but went back to Ohio for his family, and they spent the remainder of their lives in this township.
  After his marriage Mr. Hanselman began farming in Scott Township, remaining there for nine years, when he moved to Fremont Township and was engaged in farming for three years. In 1903 he bought his present farm of 144 1/2 acres of land in section 6, Otsego Township and Scott Township. This farm is one of the best improved in his locality, and his buildings are in fine condition. Here is engaged in general farming and stock raising. Mr. and Mrs. Hanselman have had the following children born to them. Nora M., is a graduate of the Angola High School, also attended the Tri-State College, of Angola for two terms, and then taught the school of district No. 5 in Otsego Township for one year. She was then married to Carl Henney, and they have a daughter Eileen Jeanette. Robert B. attended the Angola High School and the International Business college, of which he was a graduate, and entered the United States navy and saw service in England and France in the paymaster's department of the yeomen. The Hanselmans and all their connections are among the very early settlers of Steuben County, and to them and theirs is due the credit of developing much wild land and laying the foundations for the present prosperity and improvements which are such marked features of this rich agricultural region. These pioneers endured much in he way of hardships and privations, but they labored wisely and well, and their descendants are enjoying the fruits of their industry and foresight."
