I´m looking for descendants of KARL GUSTAF RYDELL (Carl Gusty Rydell) and his wife JOHANNA JOSEFINA PETERSDOTTER (Hannah Josephine).

They emigrated from Sweden in the 1880s, together with their two children, Fritz (Fred) Ambrosius and Hulda (Huldah) Carolina.

They lived in PAXTON, IL. They had another child in 1889; Esther, born in Clarence, IL.

Karl Gusty was born in 1850 in Malmbäck, Sweden. He died in 1936 in Paxton, IL.
Hannah was born in 1845 in Bergstena, Sweden. She died in 1945.


Fred was born in 1878 in Toarp, Sweden. He died in 1970 in Gibson City, IL. He was married to Maude Phillips (born 1886, died 1966) They hade at least three children; Charles, Dorothy and Everett Eugene. Dorothy married a Bert Vernon Hill.

Huldah was born in 1876 in Toarp, Sweden. She died in 1962. She was married to John A Swanfelt (born 1870, died 1953) They had at least two children; Earle and John Russell.

Esther V was born in 1889 in Clarence, IL. She died in 1973 in Paxton, IL. She was married to Carl August Elmer Kjellstrand (born 1888, died 1967) They had at least two children; Mary and Amelita Mae.

I´m trying to find living descendants of this family! Any information would be appreciated!
