Andrew immigrated to the US in 1906 and came to Tripp, SD where he met and married my grandmother Christina.  They left the Dakota territory by covered wagon and came to the "settlement' in Bethune.  They subsequently moved to Loveland, CO, where Andrew had a small piece of acreage on W 10th St on which he grew and sold raspberries.  He and Christina sold this property in about 1936 and moved to E 10th St.  He then went to work for the Great Western Sugar Mill and worked there until his retirement.  Andrew and Christina were originally members of the Lutheran Church, but from about 1935 until their deaths they were members of the First Congregational Church of Loveland.   Source E.
