My great-grandfather married Anna Lovisa Abrahamsdotter. She was born on May 24, 1857 on the Södra Backen Farm, Härjevad Parish, Skaraborg Län, Sweden. She married Wilhelm Carlsson on March 7, 1880 in Hällum Parish, Skaraborg, Sweden. Anna died 6/29/1909 and is buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Lake City, MN. Anna's parents were Abraham Andersson and Stina Jonsdotter.
She had two brothers that I know of that came to the Lake City, MN. Anders Johan Abrahamsson (who changed his name to John Kardell)was born April 19, 1878 in Skarstad Parish, Skaraborg, Sweden, and died April 9, 1918 in Lake City, MN. He is buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Lake City, MN. He married Kristina Jonasdotter. The other brother, Frans Abrahamsson (who later changed his name to Frank Kardell/Cardell) was born on October 4, 1854 - same place as Anna, and died in Lake City, MN. He is also buried at Oakwood Cemetery. He married Anna Lovisa Andersdotter. They had three children: Victor Axtell Cardell, Elmer John Cardell, and Ida A. Cardell. Ida and Elmer share a home in Lake City, MN. Victor (also known as Axel V. or in Lake City as Ole) married a Grace ? and had a daughter Millicent who at the time of his death lived in Faribault.
Anna, Frank and John had other brothers and sisters: Maya, Svante, August, and Karl. I don't know anything about them. Do you have any information about these Kardells/Cardells? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
