Re: SAMSONOFF any data Wellcomed
My grandfather was Boris Samsonoff, of Saratov.He emigrated to the US after being on the losing side of the Russian Civil War.He earlier served in the Russian army during WWI, according to his diary (which I have), he served in East Prussia, and later with the Czars bodyguards (I believe), up until 1917. He ended up settling in Connecticut, where he operated a riding stables. He died in the early 1960's. Our family is now widely scattered all over the US and Great Britain. He was the last full blooded Russian in our family, but we still carry the name.Hope this helps.Incidently,I have never personally met any other Samsonoff's or Samsonov's other than my own family members.
