Biography of Adam Leins, pages 805/806. History of DeKalb County, Indiana; B. F. Bowen & Company, Inc., Indianapolis, 1914.

In examining the life records of self-made men it will invariably be found that indefatigable industry has constituted the basis of their success. True, there are other elements, which enter in and conserve the advancement of personal interest, perseverance, discrimination and mastering of expedients, but the foundation of all achievement is earnest, persistent labor. At the outset of his career the subject of this review recognized this fact and did not seek any royal road to the goal of prosperity and independence, and the result is that he is now numbered among the progressive, successful men of DeKalb county. Adam Leins was born October 19, 1875, the son of John G. and Rosena (Miller) Leins, both natives of Germany, the subject first seeing the light of day in Noble county, Indiana. John G. Leins arrived in America when he was a young man and after locating in DeKalb County endured the struggles and hardships of home-making, he finally being successful and earning the respect and admiration of his fellowmen. To the father and his faithful helpmate were born twelve children: Mrs. Roseta Schurr lives in Richland township; Mrs. Mary Hovarter is deceased; Mrs. Kathren Schoup lives in Richland township; George F. and Henry also live in Richland township; William lives in Fairfield; John F. lives in Richland township; Manda is deceased; David lives in Fairfield; Adam; two children died in infancy. The subject of this sketch secured his education in the common schools of DeKalb county and followed framing in his younger days. He served two terms as township assessor in Richland township, having been elected to that responsible office on the Democratic ticket. On January 6, 1898, occurred the marriage of Mr. Leins to Myrtle A. Rohm, she being the daughter of Simon and Lydia (Treesh) Rohm, he a native of Knox county, Pennsylvania, and she of Stark county, Ohio. To Simon and Lydia Rohm were born five children. Mr. and Mrs. Leins have been blessed by the birth of three children; Audrey A., who was born February 2, 1899; Ralph A., born March 11, 1903, and Roy C. born September 23, 1913. Mr. Leins is at present the owner of eighty acres of land, which he has brought to a high state of cultivation. The place has been improved by the erection of convenient and substantial buildings and the general appearance of the farm indicates that an up-to-date and progressive man is at its head. The Lutheran church receives the active encouragement and support of the subject and family. Politically, he is allied with the Democratic party.
