Toi be more accurate, your grandparents came to the US in 1905, according to
what they told the enumerator in the 1920 US census. That may or may not be
the same thing. In the case of my own grandfather, it isn't, for example.
I've always appreciated Stan's knowledge and clarifications, such as
above, over the years. So, respectfully, I'd like to suggest that to
be even more accurate, the grandparents came to the US in 1905
according to what is written on their entry in the 1920 US Census.
How it got there is unknown... although we might assume either that's
what they told the enumerator, or they weren't home and a neighbor
told that to the enumerator. Other possibilities do exist.

Whether they actually arrived in 1905 is another issue.
