Mrs. Alice Hahn is widely and favorably known in Garner and throughout Hancock county, where she has spent her entire life. She was born in Garner in 1883 and is a daughter of William Crawford and Eliza (Fitch) Wells, who were early settlers of Hancock county, having removed from Wisconsin to Garner in 1870. From that time forward representatives of the family have taken an active and helpful part in promoting the work of general progress and improvement in this section.
Spending her girlhood days under the parental roof, Alice Wells attended, the public schools and passed through consecutive grades to her graduation from the high school of Garner with the class of 1899. She afterward entered the Oberlin College and Conservatory at Oberlin, Ohio, where she studied for two years. In September, 1903, she became the wife of George William Hahn, who five years later passed away.
Mrs. Hahn is a member of the Congregational church and the nature of her interests is further indicated in her membership with the Daughters of the American Revolution and in the Recital Club, which is a literary organization. She is a lady of refined taste and liberal culture, who has always occupied an enviable position in the social circles of the city in which her entire life has been passed.
