I am the 4th great granddaughter to Axel Axelson, from his daughter Dorothea.
I know that his father was Cornelius Axelson. I don't have a lot of information
regarding the Axelsons history, where they were from, where they ended up. I
do have copies of some family photos my aunt has. I would love to talk with you and
exchange information. I believe we are cousins of some kind. Please respond and lets
swap information. I'm just so excited to have found your message board.

Hi Rebecca,

I have a lot of information on this family, even old letters from Germany dated during 1860s. I got most of the information from an elderly cousin, Ella Rinderknecht of Atkins, IA in several years of correspondence. She passed away about 2 years ago in her 90s. I got a lot of records from the church in Germany & also visited there in 1980. One of the other things she gave me was a notebook that Axel Peter kept from 1823 forward. It has remedies, solutions, etc. Some of it is in his handwriting which I can read fairly well.
Sometimes he others write down things and they are very hard to decipher.

Let me know where you live or you phone # - I have free long distance for 8 states in the midwest and the other states on weekends.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Sorry it took me a little while to return your message.
I have been making hits on several different family members
and have had a lot of corresponding to do. I would love to
speak with you and get copies of information you have
regarding Axel and his family. It is a branch of the family
tree I know very little about.

Please e-mail me at and I will give you my
address and phone number so that we can exchange information.

I am interested in knowing if you have a record of any Axelsen's from Schleswig-Holstein who immigrated to the USA (Portland, ME via NYC) and had any children - one son, in particular, by the name of Charles Philip Axelsen? Also, I'm looking for Charles' mother's name & where she's from. Charles was my grandfather & I know nothing about my great-grandparents, so it would be helpful if anyone might have any geneology that had Charles in it, so I can backtrack & obtain information on my great-grandparents. Thank you! :)

I am doing my family tree/ history and while I was looking in the message board I came
across yours. The name of Cornelius Axelson caught my attention. My
GG-Grandmothers' sister Julia was the widow of a Cornelius Axelson. I
was just wondering if this is the same person. Please let me know.
