Axel Peter Akerberg

Birth: Jan. 6, 1882, Sweden
Death: Oct. 4, 1929
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA

According to Axel's son Charles, it was believed that he was born in Pennsylvania and this appears to be Axel's understanding as well. Later records corroborate this thought; however, he is listed as an infant of Caroline Akerberg, who along with his siblings Carl (Charley) & Johan (John) as having arrived at New York City in 1882.

According to the manifest of the S.S. Republic (of the White Star Line), their trip originated from Denmark. At Liverpool, the family embarked on the Republic and landed at New York on 28 JUL 1882.

The origin of the passengers being Denmark is unlikely as Swedish emigration records indicate that the family sailed from Göteborg on July 14, 1882. Unless the family boarded another ship in Denmark (which is possible), then this is a mistake.

It would be unlikely that this was a return trip from Sweden due to Axel's infancy. With this in mind, it is extremely doubtful that he was born in the US and this earlier evidence highly suggests he, like his older siblings, was born in Sweden.

Married to Edith Blanch Feltenberger and Susan Elizabeth (Lib) Schlapich.
