Biographical history

Lee is a descendent of Andrew Oilund came to Canada from Norway in 1927, and settled in the Buffalo Lakes area. In 1928 he was joined by his wife and four children. Another child was born in Buffalo Lakes. He purchased SW 20-74-7-W6 and NW 17-74-7-W6 where they lived and farmed for nearly 20 years.
