Lee County Biography
Norman Hausen: Nine years old when he came to Lee County in 1840. His advantages of education were very limited, being only such as the old subscription schools of those days afforded, but the school of experience, from which may be learned lessons of industry and thrift, was sufficient, and he was an apt scholar, as is proved by the success which has attended his busiiness affairs so far through life.
He began life for himself by working out by the month, and is now the owner of a good farm of 160 acres in Sec. 9, T. 21, R. 10, well improved and well stocked, besides a farm of 160 acres in Meriden, La Salle county, IL.
