Sandstrum, John, a native of Sweden, was born at Onslunda, June 20, 1843, and at twelve years of age immigrated to America. He had served his apprenticeship at the stone mason's trade in his native town and from 1855 to 1887 he followed that trade, traveling through the United States and Canada as a journeyman. In 1887 he settled at Niagara Falls, N. Y., where he has ever since remained and has built up a large and paying business. In 1867 Mr. Sandstrum married Johanna Mortonson of Sweden, and they had eight children, seven of whom survive.
