I found Anton and Alvida on a New York Passenger list from September
7, 1948, arriving on Gripsholm.
It says Anton Sandell, 53 Godfrey St, Groton, Connecticut, age 60,
born in Sweden
Alvida, same adress, age 66, born in Sweden
On his WW2 registration card he is born in Maine
As you say, census 1920 shows Antone B born in Sweden and immigrated
1901 snd naturalized in 1913.
In census 1930, I find Alvida and two children in Mobile, Alabama.

Anton is also in Alabama, but on a US Coast Guard Cutter. He states
to be born in Maine, father's place of birth unknown and mother from
In census 1910 is a Alvida Lund(Lound)found as servant/laundress New
London, Connecticut. Born in Sweden and immigrated 1901.
This is her record on CD Emibas

Ägardotter (unmarried woman)
b. 4/11/1882 in Stavnäs, Värmlands län (Värmland)
from Fjöle Norra, Stavnäs, Värmlands län (Värmland)
