Hello: Edwin Grenfell(my grandfather)was a child of Sarah Jane Semmens and Edwin Grenfell.My grandfather was born in Bollowall St. Just, Penzance, Cornwall England, on Aug 25,1884. He came to America with his mother Sarah Jane in 1895 along with his siblings. They joined my great grandfather, Edwin Grenfell, in Butte, Montana, USA. My greatgrandfather, Edwin died shortly after of typhoid.Sarah Jane married Frank Olson,and they all moved to Seattle, Washington.Sarah Jane died Aug.24, 1944 in Seattle, Washington.My grandfather, Edwin died Oct.18,1958 in Seattle, Washington. My father's name was also Edwin. He was born in Butte, Montana on Feb. 16, 1906, and he died on Aug.10,1952 in Seattle, Washington. He had four children.
If you visit the Ellis Island website, you can look up Sarah Jane's and her children's arrival.It is very interesting.
