Mary Olga Hoffman was born Olga Hanson on May 30, 1869 in Norway. She came to the States with her mother and sister Anna Hanson after her father's death. Her mother had to put the two girls in the Home for the Friendless in Chicago, IL while she worked on a merchant ship. It is thought that Mary Olga's mother died in a fire aboard that merchant ship. Whatever happened to her mother she never returned and Olga Hanson was adopted from the Home for the Friendless in May of 1877 by Joseph Hoffman and Anna Mary Cappellen; she became Mary Olga Hoffman. She never saw her mother or sister again. She married Peter Remark on November 17, 1885 in Kewanee, IL.
