Photo of my great grandmother, Carrie Cassel Jacobson

Carrie Cassel was the youngest daughter of Peter Cassel, who in 1845 established the first Swedish settlement in Iowa. She was also the only daughter of Peter Cassel born in America. Peter Cassel was born in 1790, so he was 61 years old when his daughter Carrie was born.
