Biography

Sarah Login Olarsch was born Chaie Lagovsky in 1891 in the Russian town of Slutsk in the old Lithuanian province of Minsk in what was then known as the Pale of Settlement and now is called Belarus. Her parents were Abraham Lagovsky born in 1858 and Libe Goodseit born in 1859. At the time of her birth she had two sisters: Gittlja born in 1876 and Chisha born in 1881 and two brothers: Golulie born in 1885 and Max born in 1886. A sister Esther followed in 1893.

At age 16 Sarah immigrated to America aboard the ship Noordam. She arrived in New York on May 19, 1906 and joined her father Abraham who had immigrated in late 1899 or early 1900, her brother Max who immigrated in 1903, her brother Charles who immigrated in 1904 and her mother Libe and sister Esther who immigrated in 1905. Two other sisters came later: Anna and her son Harry in 1907 (they joined Anna's husband Samuel Lewow who had immigrated in 1904); Gertrude (Gussie) and her children Dora, Sadie, Herman and Rose in 1913 (they joined Gertrude's husband, Louis and son Max who had immigrated in 1904). This staggered pattern of immigration was not unusual for Jewish families immigrating from the Pale during this time period. Money for passage was scarce and husbands and older sons usually went first to raise money for the rest of the family to immigrate.

In another move common to many immigrants during this period, especially those from eastern Europe. the four younger Lagovsky siblings changed their names: Motil Lagovsky became Max Login, Golulie Lagovsky became Charles Login, Chaie Lagovsky became Sarah Login and Esther Lagovsky became Esther Login. They wanted their names to sound more American so they changed it to one they thought sounded Irish. However they didn't know how to Logan correctly so they spelled it Login instead!

Sarah married David Olarsch about 1911 in New York.

David Olarsch was born 23 May 1888 in the Polish territory of Russia. The names of his parents are unknown but he had a brother, Louis, who also immigrated to America. Louis and his wife Rifka had three sons: Abraham (had a son Marvin), Irving (had a son Howard) and Benjamin (had a son Leonard). Louis was a shoemaker and had a shop in Harlem until he passed away in June 1948.

Sarah and David had two sons while living in New York: Morris born in 1912 and Louis born in 1916. After they moved to Montana, Anna was born in 1919.

In 1920 census Davis and Sarah are living in Lewistown, Montana where David's occupation is given as common laborer. After their return to the east coast, David ran a dry goods store in Elizabeth, New Jersey.

Sarah died in 1935 and in 1940 David remarried a woman named Bertha. Bertha's last name is unknown. David died in 1957.
