I was just looking around this site and noticed your entry. I too have Kardell relatives, although I think they came from Germany and settled in Missouri and Illinois. I'm going to call my mother and then I'll let you know if we're related!

Wendy, my grandparents were Ernst Rueben and Anna Matilda Kardell and they lived in St. Louis. They had 8 children. My mother, Florence is one of them. They came from Sweden around 1910. Wonder if we're related? Kathy

To Ken Kardell: My father Carl Kardell also was born in Sweeden.I think it was the early 1900's when he came over here, followed later by his mom and dad, brothers and sister. He stayed in Ma. for a few years while the rest of the family moved to Ca.He married Ellen Adamson and moved to Me. a little later. That's where I was born. I know there was a name change. Their name used to be Anderson. His dad was Andes. I don't know the reson for the change,But I know I seldon see another Kardell.Now I am70 and maybe their are relatives out there that I don't know about.Let me know whatever sounds probable. Eleanor Kardell Michael

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
