Olaf arrived from Varmland, Sweden around 1881 and first came to Kandiyohi County. They arrived in Kittson County in 1884. Based on his declaration of intention to become a U.S. citizen, he arrived in the U.S. at New York in July 1881. According to family myth, his Swedish name was not Lilliquist. He is said to have been told "there are too many of the name _______", so he chose Lilliquist stating, "We will be a small branch of the family". Although this can not be verified, it was a common practice for some to acquire a new name.
