By Peter Liliequist.

The Kindblade family has nearly the same origin as The Chilberg Family.

By Swain Charles Kindblade - Dated 22 June 1894, at Yates Center, Kansas, USA.

About the year 1780 in the little hamlet of Kaphult(Kåphult), Halland County, Sweden, was born to Sven Svensson and wife, a son. Under the customs then prevailing, this child grew up under the name Svensson, but, on reaching military age he was, for reasons unknown, given by his King, the name of KINDBLADE. He being the first person to bear that name, and leaving a number of children who in their turn left a numerous posterity which is still increasing, and believing that it would be a pleasure to them to know the names and whereabouts of as many of his descendants as could be found, this task has been undertaken by one of them. Of our common progenitor but little is known, more than that he married Elsa Killberg in 1809, of which union was born five sons and three daughters, that he lived and died in the village where he was born, his death occuring in 1836. His widow remarried and lived to extreme old age, dying in 1866 on the estates which had been her home for the full portion of her life.(1)(21)(29)

II.a) CARL CHRISTIAN KINDBLADE, born 1813 in Sweden. Died 1851 in Glastonbury, Connecticut. The first born of these eight children was a son who was born in 1813 and who was named Carl Christian, married to CHRISTINA MUNSON(born 1811 in Sweden) in 1835 by whom he became the father of seven children and named: Christina, Swen Carl, John Frederic, Gustavus Adolphus, Isaac, Samuel Harry and Charles Christian, Jr.(1)(5)(6)

III.2) S W A I N CHARLES(SWEN CARL)KINDBLADE, born 5 October 1838 in Sweden, died 1918 in Yates Center, Woodson County, Kansas. The second, a son, and named Sven Carl, americanized his name to Swain Charles. He was born in Farhultsbyget, Sweden, October 5, 1838 and came with his parents to America in 1847. He went to school one year in New York City, moving with the family to Glastonbury, Connecticut. Here, owing to the illness of his father, he was bound out for five years to Reuben Stevens where he remained until the death of his father. Then in what was then a wilderness, with his widowed mother and four younger children, began his struggle for subsistance for self and mother and family. By dint of hard toil by every member of his family according to capacity, he grew up to early manhood with the satisfaction of seeing them all provided with at least the necessities of life. In 1856 he visited his uncles, Benedic and F. G. Kindblade and aunt Lena in Geneva, Illinois and worked in that neighborhood as a farm hand for about a year, returning to Iowa. Hhe then went to Knox County, Missouri where he worked at various employments until 1861 when he returned to Iowa and in December of that year enlisted in Company G., Fourth Iowa Volunteer Infantry and was mustered into the army at Davenport, Iowa March 1, 1862. Before he joined his regiment he was detailed to clerk in General Halleck´s office in St. Louis, Mo. where he remained about two months, finally reaching his regiment at Batesville, Arkansas in the summer of 1862. Following the vicisitudes of the regiment, he was in the engagements of Chickasaw Bbayou and Arkansas Post and was while laying at Young´s Point, sent to St. Louis on the hospital boat "City Of Memphis" in February 1863. Returning to his regiment in June he was present at the siege and fall of Vicksburg, second battle of the Jackson, Mississippi and Brandon, Mississippi. Tthe regiment going with General Sherman east. He was in the battles of Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge, after which he reenlisted, and with the regiment, went home on Veteran furlough. While at home he was detained by a severe attack of pleuro pneumonia and did not rejoin the regiment until it was on the Atlanta Campaign. He was on hand at all the battles of that memorable campaign, except the battle of Resecca Georgia. After the fall of Atlanta he was appointed Seargent Major of the regiment in which capacity he acted on that grand march of Sherman´s to the Sea, and was present at the capture of Savannah, Georgia. From there the march led to Goldsboro, Georgia and Columbia, South Carolina, hence to Bentonville, North Carolina where was fought the last battle of the war by his regiment in which he took a part. From there he marched to Washington, D. C. and took his position with the regiment in the Grand Review. Next we find him at Louisville, Kentucky where he and his comrads were discharged August 25, 1865, having served his adopted country nearly four years and having been engaged in 20 important battles, besides numerous skirmishes, having been wounded twice and marched a distance of 12,000 miles, traversing every state in the southern Confederacy except Texas and Florida. After the war he bought land in Ringgold County, Iowa, but before doing anything at farming he took a trip to the Rocky Mountains, returning in 1866 when on August 8, 1867 he married R A C H E L ANN HOPKINS(born 8 August 1845 in Iowa, died 1927 in Kansas), in Ringgold County, Iowa. To this union have been born five children: Charles Hopkins, Oscar Rawlings, Mary Alice, Harriet Christina and Walter Swain. After his marriage, he settled on his land and began farming on his own account. In 1872 he sold out and moved to McPherson County, Kansas where he took a Government Homestead. Here he made himself a fine home near the city of McPherson. In 1881 he sold out and moved to Toronto, Woodson County, Kansas where he engaged in the Carpenter trade which he had learned while still a boy. After a few years his health failed and he was forced to quit hard work and in 1889 he traded for a home in Iola, Allen County, Kansas where he remained until 1891 when he traded for a home in Yates Center, Woodson County, Kansas where he now lives on what little earnings and the pension he draws from the Government.(1)(13)(14)(25)(28)

III.3) J O H N FREDERIC KINDBLADE, born 13 February 1840 in Sweden, died 28 November 1908. The third child, a son, named John Frederick was born February 13, 1840 in Farhultsbyget, Halland County, Sweden, came with his parents to America in 1847. He went to school in New York City about a year, when they moved to Glastonbury, Connecticut. Here, he like his elder brother, bound out to a man named Elezer Slew, with whom he lived until the death of his father, and the removal of his Mother to Wappelo County, Iowa in 1852. Here, at the age of 12 years he, with his Mother and Brother, endured the hardships incidental to a life of poverty in the far west. But, with the blessing of good health and an indomitable perseverance, he had the gratification of seeing his mother and younger brother placed beyond absolute want. In 1856 he went with his elder brother to visit his uncles and aunt at Geneva, Illinois where he remained until the next summer, when he had the misfortune to be struck by lightening which disabled him from work. He then went back to Iowa. In 1858 he, with his brother, went to Missouri where he worked on a farm until the next spring when he went to Pikes Peak in search of gold. Meeting with indifferent success, he came back to Iowa and in December of the year 1861, enlisted in the Army for the preservation of the Union. He joined the same time his brothers did and in the same company and regiment, Co. G, Fourth Iowa Infantry. He was in all the engagements of the regiment in the Vicksburg Campaign, including Fort Gibson, Jackson, Champion Hills, Black River Bridge, and the seige of Vicksburg, when, owing to failure of health, he was, in 1863, discharged on account of disability for which he now draws a pension. Going back to Iowa, he was on the 25th day of December 1863, married to CINDERELLA MILNETTA SOLES(born 4 November 1843 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, died 6 October 1931 in McPherson, Kansas, lived 1928 in Fort Cobb, Oklahoma), in Ringgold County, Iowa. Of this union were born two sons and four daughters: Ethel Christina, Harry, Eva Luella, Frederick Elmer, Clara Elizabeth and Stella Belle. About the time of his marriage, he bought land in Ringgold County, Iowa and engaged in farming. In 1873 he moved to McPherson, McPherson County, Kansas where he soon got possesions of 320 acres of land on which he made himself a comfortable home, and where he still lives in the enjoyment of the results of a life of hard labor and judicious saving.

III.4) G U S T A V U S ADOLPHUS KINDBLADE, born 19 November 1841 in Halland, Sweden, died 21 February 1921 in McPherson, Kansas. Gustavus family took the long boat ride over to the Promised Land and arrived in New York where they settled in 1846. How large was their family? We know of at least three boys, mother and father. Surely they were not the only ones to leave Sweden at that time. They probably travelled with friends or other relatives. A year after their arrival, little brother Samuel Kindblade is born in New York. The father, who is working as a tailor, moves the family to Gastonburg in Connecticut in 1847. Here the youngest son Charles is born. The father lives and works there until his death in 1852 at which point the mother decides to move west to Wapello County in Iowa. She has her five boys ages 13, 12, 8, 3 and 1 years old with her. Seven years later the boys move again, this time to their final destination - Ringgold County. Was their mother with them, or had she passed away? No grave records are found for her in Ringgold County. Did Gustavus attend American school, did he speak English well when he met Elisabeth? 21 March 1867 he married ELISABETH HAGANS(born 1848 in Illinois; died 10 October 1927 in McPherson, Kansas; She was the daughter of James Conrad Hagans, born 8 October 1809 in Kentucky, & Tabitha Bandfield, born 1826 in Tennessee.), in Ringgold County, Iowa. Elisabeth and Gustavus had four children, three boys and one girl. Poor Elisabeth and Gustavus had to bury three of their four children. Everyone knows that that is the hardest test to be put through! They must have sat together with her brother Bird and his wife Jane many evenings to console each other as the same fate had struck their young families. This explains why a lot of couples decided to have large families back in those times. Through hardship and then incurable illnesses many families never saw their children turn into healthy adults. Gustavus fought alongside his friends and brothers-in-law in the civil war with G Company, 4th Iowa Infantry Volunteers. In 1870 they are living next door to Elisabeth´s stepmother, Tabitha Hagans. Gustave´s age is listed as 26 - his profession that of a farmer. Living in the household are Elisabeth, age 22, and their baby boy George B., age 1.(1)(7)(8)(9)(10)(11)(25)(26)(28)

An obituary found in the Mount Ayr Record News reveals that he grew up in Ringgold County where he obtained his early education, going later to Creston where he attended business college and prepared for the teaching profession. He served as teacher for the public schools in his home county for twelve years. On November 23, 1894, he was married to Miss ELLA FRANCES SACKETT(born 15 February 1875 in Henry County, Iowa, died 16 Dec 1951 in Omaha, Douglas, Nebraska, daughter of Alfred M.

Source (5) = Christina Munson, born 1811 in Sweden, died 24 Jan 1882 in Ringgold County, Iowa. Burial: Oakdale Cemetery, Lotts Creek TWP, Ringgold County, IA. What an admirable woman Christina must have been to be able to stay strong for her children despite all the hardship she had to endure. She was married at the age of 23 years old in 1835 in Sweden to her husband Carl Christian. Not long after - in 1836 - she gave birth to their little baby girl who was lovingly named for her mother - Christina. Bbut the good lord did not let her keep her bundle of joy for long. Little Christina passed away in infancy. WWhile the mother must have been beside herself with grief it made her nonetheless happy to discover that once again she was carrying a child under her heart. In October 1838 she gave birth to their first son Sven who would later change his name to Swain. Over the next eight years she was blessed with three more boys whom they named John, Gustavus and Isaac. But times were not easy in Sweden in the 1840´s and her husband Carl was looking across the big ocean and dreaming of joining the many who had taken the long and treachurous journey to the promised land - AMERICA. He must have planned everything very carefully and weighted his options when he decided to take on the challenge and leave. According to later notes by his oldest son Swain, in 1847 he emigrated to America, landing in New York City on the 22 of June. They had made it - Carl, 34 years of age, his pregnant wife Christina, 35, and their boys Swain - 8 years, John - 7 years, Gustavus - 5 years, and little Isaac who was about 3 years old. Poor little Isaac had not fared very well and the long journey had taken it´s toll on his health. His parents put his little body to rest just a few short weeks later. But Christina didn´t have the time or the strength to grieve a lot for she delivered her 6th child, another son whom they named Samuel, on 12 October, 1847. Tthe first child of theirs born on American soil. But Isaac wasn´t the only one to had suffered coming across the ocean. Father Carl´s health started deteriorating at a rapid pace. Christina must have been worried. The Kindblades decided to stay in New York City, where the three oldest sons, Swain, John and Gustavus, were enrolled in school, until the following spring, when upon the advice of physicians Carl was induced on account of his health, to move to Glastonbury, Connecticut. When a lingering disease finally brought him to a bed of sickness, which resulted in his death by consumption in the spring of 1851, he left a very pregnant widow and four young children. In August of 1852 she gave birth to her last child whom she named in honor of the father this boy would never know: Charles Christian, Jr. Things had been rough for the Kindblades in Connecticut and it had been impossible for father Carl to keep the family together. The oldest son Swain was bound out for five years to Reuben Stevens where he remained until the death of his father. Like their elder brother, son John was bound out to a man named Elezer Slew, and son Gustavus was placed to live away from home with a man named Andrew Hale. Here they lived until the death of their father. The promised land hadn´t brought yet what they had expected but there was no rest for the weary. In the same year, Christina decided to move on with her five young children and the destination was Wappelo County, Iowa which was then a wilderness. Here, poor Gustavus was again compelled to live away from his mother and among strangers that those at home might be the more able to provide for the rest. On the remarriage of his Mother in 1855 to a man by the name of Barber, he came home to live. In 1859 he moved with the family to Ringgold County, Iowa and in June 1861, enlisted in Co., G, Fourth Iowa Infantry and went to the front. But the family was not meant to live together it seems. In 1856, the oldest son Swain who was now 18 years old, along with his 16 year old brother John, visited uncles. Benedic and F. G. Kindblade and Aunt Lena in Geneva, Illinois and worked in that neighborhood as a farm hand for about a year, before returning to Iowa. They then went to Knox County, Missouri where they worked at various employments until 1861 when they returned to Iowa and in December of that year enlisted in Company G, Ffourth Iowa Volunteer Infantry and were mustered into the army at Davenport, Iowa March 1, 1862. Mr. and Mrs. Barber were left with only the two youngest children, Samuel and Charles, after the older boys had gone off to fight in the war. And in the year 1870 we find Christina alone with the two boys which leads us to believe that Mr. Barber had passed away. But Christina was a strong woman and carried on. She finally died in her 71st year in 1882. When the census taker came around in 1880, Christina Barber was livingt with her son Samuel and his wife Susan in Lotts Creek TWP, Ringgold County, IA.

Kindblade: The fourth child, a son, was named Gustavus Adolphus and was born November 19, 1841 in Farhultsbyget, Sweden and came with his parents to America in 1847. He, like his two elder brothers, went to school about a year in New York City. Upon removal of the family to Glastonbury, Connecticut, he was placed to live away from home with a man named Andrew Hale. Here he lived until the death of his father and the removal of the bereaved family to Wappelo County, Iowa in 1852. Here he was again compelled to live away from his mother and among strangers that those at home might ne the more able to provide for the rest. On the remarriage of his Mother in 1855, he came home to live. In 1859 he moved with the family to Ringgold County, Iowa and in June 1861, enlisted in Cco. G, Fourth Iowa Infantry and went to the front. He was in all engagements of the war in which his regiment took a part - from Pea Ridge, Arkansas to Bentonville, North Carolina, embracing among others, the battles of Chickasaw Bayou, where he was severely wounded, and for which he now draws a pension, Arkansaw Post, Fort Gibson, Grand Gulf, Jackson, Champion Hills, Black River Bridge, Seige of Vvicksburg, Jackson the second time, Brandon, Tuscumbia, Cherokee Station, Lookout Mountain, Mission Ridge, Reseca, Dalton, Dallas, New Hope Church, Ezra Chapel, Peach Tree Creek, Kenesaw Mountain, Atlanta, Jonesboro, Columbia and Maury Skirmishes.

Coming back to Iowa, he took a trip with his elder brother to the Rocky Mountains and returned in the fall of 1866 and then married ELIZABETH HAGENS, March 21, 1867. Three sons and one daughter have been born to him: George Banfield, Leroy Jasper, Abbie Tabitha and William Henry. After opening a farm and making a good home, he rented it out and 1872 moved to Kansas and took a Government Claim. This he soon sold and moved back to his farm in Ringgold County, Iowa, where he now lives. The post office address is Poyneer, Iowa.

Harry Joe went to school at West Spring Valley from the 1st through 8th grade. it was a small country school where Harry Joe walked to school or rode his horse. He rode the school bus to Carnegie High School. During high school all he wanted to do was farm, so he bought Hampshire hogs and Hereford cattle while he was in school. He showed his hogs in FFA and in 1949 was awarded Star Farmer of Oklahoma, An Oklahoma Government Achievement Award. He was presented the award by Governor Roy Turner. He attended Oklahoma State University for two years, and was active in Alpha Gamma Rho, the ag fraternity. He then moved back to the ranch where he started a 1000 head sheep herd. In 1952 he was drafted into the United States Army. He sold his sheep herd and entered boot camp at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. He was in the 43rd Engineers Construction Battalion, and was stationed in Japan during the Korean War. He was released from the Army at Fort Carson, Colorado in 1954. He then returned to the Kindblade Ranch and began farming and ranching with sheep and cattle and built up a nice herd of livestock. He drew a homestead in Idaho. He married Carolyn Joyce Willis on January 13, 1957. They lived in a trailer house at the Kindblade Ranch. They went to Idaho in early summer, 1957, and selected their homestead from 90 available sites. Their first baby Jo Lynn, was born February 28, 1958, and two weeks later they began cleaning the sagebrush and planted their first crop of the Spring of 1958. On October 20, 1959, their second child, Stanley Joe, was born on November 10, 1961, their third child, Mary Luann, was born. The farm has been in continuous irrigated cultivation since 1958. It has produced potatoes, sugar beets, alfalfa hay, wheat, barley, peas and onions. He also started a sheep operation in those early years on the homestead. He and Carolyn were married for 11 years. He was very active as a white water rafting guide in the 70s and has always been an avid big game hunter. He really enjoyed hunting antelope in Wyoming and caribou in Alaska, also pheasants in Idaho.
