He was my grandfather. I believe he was an orphan. He came to the U.S. around 1900 with
his brother. He later married Cecile Jensen, who came to the states from Denmark around
1905 with her sister. They had 8 children, the youngest, Noel is my father. I believe he
was a merchant marine before he came to the U.S. In the U.S. he was an electrictian and
an auto mechanic. He died around 1935.
