English with a Swedish Accent?

Grandpa Moses spoke English with a Swedish accent, so related his son Peter.  The reason?
When he first came to this country, he lived with a Swedish family, and taught himself English -- first from speaking with them, then he taught himself to read and write in English.  So strange to think of a recent immigrant from Armenian Marash speaking English with a Swedish accent!
