A-1.I-1. Carl Axel Qvarnstrom/Quanstrom  was born 19 October 1849 in Ludvika Nyhammar-Bruk Parrish, Kopparberg County, Dalarna Province, Sweden.  He was the illegitimate son of Maria Gorling. In the christening book from 1849, as well as in three "Household Examination Rolls" (or shorter "Clerical Surveys") between 1849 and 1872 he is said to have "father unknown". The emigration register of 1872 also says "father unknown". Carl came to America  02 Aug. 1872.  He took the ship Orlando to Hull England. Some of the family settled near Chicago, Illinois, USA. Carl and his brother Charles came to Altona, Knox County, Illinois, USA.   Carl Axel married Elizabeth Christine Skogue or Skog near Randall or East Galesburg, Illinois, USA in 8 Nov. 1873 and his brother Charles married her sister Scedia in 1880.

Elizabeth Christine Skogue/Skog was born 18 May 1849 (new information says 15 May 1849) in Halsingborg Parish (also references Halsingland), Malmohus County, Skane Province, Sweden. I have conflicting information about her birthplace, I also have Tomsjo, Gavleborg, Sweden from Dick Swanson.  Her parents were Jonas(John) Skogue/Skog born in 14 April 1815 and Christine Peterson or Pehrsdotter was born in 15 September 1827. Jonas died in 1894 and Elizabeth died in 1922.   For Elizabeth Christine Skogue's ascendants click here.

Carl and Elizabeth had a large family of at least eight children. Elizabeth died 24 August 1906 in Altona, Illinois, USA and Carl died 28 March 1917 in Altona, Illinois, USA. Both are buried in Altona, Illinois, USA. Their children were:
