Andrew was born 21 Mar 1864 and came to the U.S in about 1881. He settled in Joliet, IL. Believe he was from Sweden or possibly Denmark.

Yep, that's my family. Guess I should have been more specific in my question. I lose the trail prior to 1910. The 1900 census records are not the ones I'm looking for and the 1890 census is non-existant. Thanks, Frank.

The name and year of birth but not the month is correct.  Maybe you will recognize the names of his siblings/cousins - to rule in or rule out?
