Swedish parish records show his name as "Anders Hjalmar" "Anders Petter" or "Anders Peter H". After emigration he uses the name "Axel Hjalmar Enberg". Born December 13, 1853, according to his baptism and emigration records.
Axel married Augusta Andersdotter 1879 or 1880, in Sweden. Axel, Augusta and son left Sundsvall parish, Sweden, to emigrate to the United States in October 1881. Augusta's sister, Emma, and son Gustaf accompanied them.
His Intent of Declaration to become a United States citizen shows they entered the United States at the port of Chicago in November 1881. (Document is dated November 7, 1882 at Crow Wing Co., Minnesota.)
They traveled to Minnesota, living for two years in Brainerd, Crow Wing Co., then purchased a farm in Farm Island Twp., Aitkin Co., Minnesota where he lived the remainder of his life.
Eleven more children were born to Axel and Augusta while they were living in Minnesota.
Axel became a naturalized citizen on October 15, 1889, in Aitkin Co., Minnesota.
Axel was a farmer, and his farm in rural Aitkin Co. is still owned by his descendants. His granddaughter Jessie Enberg Langton took a great interest in preserving the farm and caring for it.
Axel, and his family, attended the Maria Chapel, and was active in it's outreach to the community. It is reported he was a charter member, organized on March 14, 1888; and was instrumental in the building of the chapel there. The Diamond Lake Cemetery (earlier known as Mud Lake Cemetery) adjoins the church.
