Colonel Nicholas Romanoff served with the White Russian Cossack forces in the Transbaikal region in the far-east under Admiral Alexander Kolchak and Ataman Grigory Semyonov. There he met American General (then colonel) David Prescott Barrows on the Special Military Mission to Manchuria and Siberia. Barrows later sponsored the relocation of Colonel Romanoff and his family to California. Worthy of further research.
