Hannah was born in Oslo, Norway possibly to Amund Hansen.
She had at least three other siblings that emigrated with her: Carrie Hanson whose daughter, May, married Eden T. Brekke (1893-1978); Ole C. Hanson (1870-?) who lived in Dallas, Barron County, Wisconsin and had several children; and a sister who lived in Seattle, Washington.
Hannah married Otto Olson (1858-1921) on September 04, 1884 in Chicago at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church at 138th Street and Wabash Avenue.
- Tille Olson (1885-1918) who married Norval Wintrone (1890-1918) and they both died along with their child in the influenza pandemic of 1918
- Harry Oliver Olson (1887-1964) who served as a Lieutenant in World War I, married a French woman named Germaine X (1900-1920) who died after two years of marriage in San Francisco, and they had no children
