Andrew Grandall came from Russia/Sweden abt 1880. His wife was Sophia Johnson.Their son George was born 4 apr 1888 in Brainerd. I find them on the 1885 census in Crow Wing County. By 1900 they have moved to Tacoma,Washington. According to Sophia's death certificate her father was John Wickbeck. So far I have not found any naturalization papers.A story came down from family that someone Andrew? or someone else was a guard to the Czar. Could they have immigrated illegally? Andrew died 9 Mar 1900 in Tacoma,WA. His obituary said Johnson instead of Grandall. The 1900 Census list the family as Johnson then in 1910 it lists them as Grandall.
