My Great Grandfather

Updated: Jun 16

Eric Karl Johnson

He immigrated here from Sweden. Our families last name was Johansson and he changed his last name to Johnson to Americanize our family. His Wife actually came to America on the Titanics sister ship. My Great Grandfather died when my Grandpa was 8. If you named what Eric Karl Johnson's American occupation was, he worked in a Hotel. He made my Grandfathers first language Swedish. Sweden is Neutral Country which is an interesting fact because what Grandpa did to make adult money was he was a Sergeant in the Army Airforce. His group was in India to keep China in check.

My neighbor when I was a kid was from China. He was a grade above me. He actually went to Yale and graduated.
