George Emil Olsen1

M, #14666, b. 16 September 1905, d. 2 February 1989
     George Emil Olsen was born on 16 September 1905 at MT.2,1 He married Alice May Krogh, daughter of Charles W. Krogh and Nina L. Nielsen, on 29 June 1966.3 George Emil Olsen died on 2 February 1989 at Junction City, Trinity Co., CA, at age 83; California records say 2 July 1989.2,1
     From an article written in The Trinity Journal by Phil Nelson:
“I first met Alice back in 1977. I had just moved up to Trinity County and a neighbor asked if I would be willing to help him milk a couple of cows for the Olsens downriver. It seems that George Olsen of Junction City had broken his leg and was bedridden. I said sure. (George broke his leg kicking the cow) Now it had been a long, long time since I had milked a cow and even then I never could get the hang of it. There's nothing to milking a cow using a milking machine, but when it came time to strip the critter by hand I’ll be darned if I could get any milk to come out. That's when I met Alice. Alice was a slender white haired lady of 70 who proceeded to show me how it was done. It took a while, but I eventually was able to get milk from those cows. After straining and putting the milk in the cooler, I was invited in for coffee where I met George. It soon became a routine: after milking we would sit at the kitchen table drinking coffee and talking. Alice would usually get up and busy herself in the kitchen leaving George to continue our conversation. Sometimes I would stay and have breakfast. Alice May Ball Olsen is originally from Salt Lake City. Actually she lived a mile from the streetcar line out in the 'boonies'. They lived next to the railroad tracks and that's where she met her first husband, Leslie Ball. Leslie and his friend were walking down the tracks past Alice's house. Alice's step sister, who was a 'little bit forward,' according to Alice, called Leslie and his friend over to the front gate and made a date to meet at the schoolhouse. The schoolhouse was located across the track from Leslie's home, which was a mile down the track from Alice's house. Alice was 14 at the time and refused to go. Well, Leslie didn't give up. He phoned Alice and started coming over and the two started dating. A year later, 1922, Alice was 15 and Leslie 18, they were married. A year after the wedding they moved to California. Leslie went to California a couple of months ahead of Alice to find a job. Then, while Alice worked for the Creamery, Leslie went to Barber College. Leslie, then in turn, worked at several barbershops putting Alice through Beauty School. In 1930 they moved to Oxnard where Leslie opened up a barbershop in 1937 of his own after working for Mr. Winters’ OK Barber Shop. Alice then opened up her own beauty shop (Alice May Beauty Room). When Alice was working for the telephone company in Oxnard she worked with and was a friend with Lottie Morgan, who later moved to Junction City and whose husband was a justice court judge for Junction City. Leslie and Alice would visit the Morgans and it wasn't long before they bought their place in Junction City. It was 1950 and they bought 42 acres on Dutch Creek Road. It was to be their vacation home only. 'But Leslie wanted to move up so bad', says Alice. So in 1955 Leslie and Alice sold their businesses and home in Oxnard and moved to Junction City. 'I hated it that first year,' says Alice, 'I had a large beautiful home in Oxnard and our house here was just a shell.' Alice continues: 'we had to hand pump and bucket water from the spring: no electricity; there were no conveniences; I was used to the city.' After the first year of Leslie 'just hunting and fishing', he went to work for Dean Davenport's barbershop in Weaverville. (The shop was located in what is now the Gold Rush Jewelry store.) Alice opened her beauty shop in their home in Junction City also a year after moving up to Junction City. And that's the way it was for the next eight years. One year Leslie became ill and after a year of sickness, in 1965, passed away from cancer. Well, Alice put the place up for sale and one day a man came to the door to inquire about buying the place. His name was George Olsen. 'I couldn't get rid of him,' Alice said. George, a 60 year old bachelor who had never been married, started hanging around. George, who in his heyday was an Oakland Bay Bridge painter who hung 500 feet in the air above the Bay in a boatswains chair; a high rise riveter and a farmer in Montana, was retired and living in Alameda. But not for long. He started coming up and visiting Alice quite often and on June 29, 1966 George and Alice were married. It was with George that the place became a mini-farm. They put in a large garden, built out buildings and bought two cows - Alice's first experience with a cow. 'It was a pleasant experience,' says Alice, 'I taught myself to milk and with George's help learned to make cheese and butter.' They also grew vegetable for the senior citizens through the Green Thumb Program. Over the years my visits with the Olsens became less frequent. One year I photographed Alice in their huge garden for the newspaper, but generally we only saw one another picking up our mail at the post office where we would stop and chat for a while. George became more stooped as the years passed, but Alice never seemed to grow older. In February 1989 George's heart stopped and he passed away. He was 83. Again the property was put on the market for sale and this July Alice moved to Weaverville. 'Its a smaller and easier place to take care of,' said Alice. At 83 Alice still belongs to the North Fork Grange. She is very active in the canasta club that years ago started with ladies and now has 12. 'I'm the only old timer left,' Alice said. Only this last year Alice didn't renew her beautician’s license. I drive by George and Alice's old place just about every day to and from town. There used to be a sign at the entrance to their driveway that said, 'The Olsens, George and Alice.' (Before that the sign use to read 'The Balls Breezeway') The signs are down now and I feel a little sad for the change. That's the way it goes, I guess, nothing ever stays the same. So, welcome to the new people and Alice May Ball Olsen. I hope to see you around.”.3
