Occupations: "Bonde" = peasant or countryman in 1796; none given in 1799; "Torpare" = crofter in 1801; "Soldat" in 1802, 1804;

Residence 1788 is Hyltan, according to marriage record. Anders is identified as an "Ankling" = widower.

Residence 1790 is still Hyltan, according to son Erik's birth record.

Residence 1793 is Vastraby, according to son Jons's birth record. Same in 1796 and 1799, according to daughters Maria Lena's and Birgitta's birth records. (NOTE: transcription misidentifies Anders as "Enders" in 1796, making it easy to miss Maria Lena's existence.)

An Anders Eriksson said to be age 61y 1m 18d died 4 Jan 1822 in Flaskebo, Bankeryd, Jönköping. He is identified as a "Rusthallare" = the farmer who provided a cavalryman, horse, and uniform in exchange for a large tax reduction. (Information at||hogman/slsoldat_eng.htm) The inaccuracy as to birth, the absence of his soldier name of Gren, and his lack of prior connections to Bankeryd, all suggest that he is a different Anders Eriksson.

For some time, Rick and I thought Anders Eriksson married a third time and became a soldier. But the husband of Lisa Nilsdotter has no clear connection with our Anders, and comes from a different hamlet and acts like a younger man, e.g. by joining the army. I have disconnected Lisa and her children but left them in the database in case future knowledge clarifies matters.
