J Olaf Lein

Mr. and Mrs. J. Olaf Lein

The family of J. Olaf Lein moved to Roseglen, North Dakota from Parshall in the spring of 1927. Mr. Lein was employed by Ole Olness to manage the store in Roseglen. Formerly, he had worked in a store in Parshall.

The family consisted of three daughters: Helen, Gladys and Shirley, as well as a son, Ray. While in Roseglen, another son was born, who was named Lindy, after the nationally famous flyer, Charles Lindbergh who, the previous week, has flown over the Atlantic Ocean.

The Leins spent an enjoyable year in Roseglen, but left there to operate a store in Wing, North Dakota.

Helen, their oldest child, passed away at the age of twenty-one, in 1934. Mr. Lein died in 1960. In 1967, when the Golden Jubilee book was published, Mrs. Lein was living in Bismarck.
