Hi I was fooling around on my computer and decided to type Ekwall in a search engine and was pleased to find this message board. I recognize some of the names that have signed on from some letters and a family tree that my half sister Rose Cita Ekwall put together many years ago. I can give as much information as I know beginning with my great great grandfather Peter Ekwall, my great grandfather Fred Simon Ekwall, my grandfather Ellis Ekwall, and his children Robert, Roy, Eileen, George, and Raymond Ekwall. Of course there are my 3 brothers, and my sister and numerous cousins. Can anyone tell me if we are related to the Ekwalls that I see being named in some of your messages. I would like to be able to bridge the gap here possibly. If someone has a diagram with these names I would be interested in seeing some of it. Sounds like the family started somewhere in Iowa. I know that my grandfather grew up somewhere in Nebraska before moving to Wyoming. That's about all I know.
