Notes:  Hans Nielsen Møller was born 11 Aug 1872 in Jordrup, Anst, Ribe, Denmark.  He was christened on 27 Sep 1872, in Jordrup.  He was the second of seven children of Hans Christian and Christine Møller, all boys until the youngest, Martha Marie, was born in 1885.  Three of his brothers died in infancy, and only he, his brother Hans Christian, who was a year older, his brother Rasmus Christian, and his sister Martha Marie, grew to adulthood.

In the 1880 Danish census, the family was living in Jordrup.  His father was a daglejer, or day laborer.  Christian was 10, Hans Nielsen, 7, and Peter Christian, 2 years.

Christian's mother, Kristine, died 25 Jan 1887.  His father immigrated to the United States 6 months after her death, arriving 21 Jul 1887.  A year later, Hans followed.  He was scheduled to sail from Copenhagen on 20 Jun 1888 aboard the S.S. Island, with stops in Christiania and Christiansand, Norway.  He arrived in New York on 7 Jul 1888, not quite 16 years old.  His older brother Christian immigrated to the United States in 1889.  His younger brother Rasmus and sister Marie stayed in Denmark.

Hans became a naturalized citizen in 1895, and married Karen Cathrine Abrahamsen on 14 Dec 1895 in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.  Known as Kathrine, she had also immigrated from Denmark.  Their daughter Nellia Maria was born in 1898, followed by Hans August in 1900.  In the 1900 U.S. census, the family was living at 192 Hall Street in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.  Hans was a milkman.  Their last daughter, Dorothy, was born in 1902.

In the 1910 U.S. cnesus, the family was living at 401 Hall Avenue, and Hans was now a milk retailer.  His nephew Alfred Miller was living with the family, and was driving a milk truck for his uncle.  In the 1920 U.S. census, Hans was still in the milk business, and all three children were still at home.  Hans August was a bookkeeper for a clay company, and Dorothy was a stenographer for a terra cotta company.

On 21 April 1923 Hans attested to the identification of, and the naturalization documents of, Waldemar L. Hoyer and his wife Elna, when they applied for a U.S. Passport.  The Hoyers were the parents of Waldemar Hoyer who married his daughter Nellie.  He had known them for 20 years.  Hans listed his address as 71 Rose Street, Metuchen, New Jersey, and his occupation as a retail coffee dealer.

In the 1930 U.S. census, Hans and Katherine were living alone at 343 Layeffete Road in Raritan Twp., Middlesex, New Jersey.  Hans was again listed as a dairy milkman.  Hans died 26 January 1933 at the age of 60.  He is buried in Alpine Cemetery, Perth Amboy, New Jersey.
