According to Aunt Ila:  Adrian's (her father, my grandfather) parents died when he was very young.  His sisters Johanna and Marie brought him up.  They ran a grocery store but times were very difficult so he decided to come to America and join other relatives.  His sisters pleaded with him not to leave.  He told his children years later that he could hear his sisters calling after him as he walked away, to "come back".  He came over on a crude ship.  It was a difficult sailing and he became very sick.  He never wanted to cross the ocean again.
