Andrew is not a Swedish name. He was probably Anders or Andreas in Sweden. He probably didn't leave Sweden with a surname such as Ecklund. (Eklund is the Swedish spelling.) He probably left with a patronymic last name (one ending with son or -- for females -- daughter.)

Try to find a FULL birthdate for Andrew. As you can see from the above information, "born about 1860" is not as specific as the June 1858 birthdate found in the 1900 census. Look at his death certificate.

Also try to find if he had other given names.
