"Hovslagarege" = farrier or blacksmith at marriage 1809 and at births 1810 and 1815.

At birth 1812, however, he is residing in Sofia parish and is identified as a "Tyggårdssmed" = ??

In the original (microfilmed) death records of the 1834 cholera epidemic, "Tractör [innkeeper] Peter Billman" -- could be Hillman, transcribed in Jönköping web site as "Biltman" -- is listed immediately above that of Dorothea Adrian. Age is given as 54 (possibly 64). Most interestingly, the order of the list is changed in the on-line transcription, therefore omitting the most powerful clue that this is the husband of Anna Dorothea. Further tests could include searching the website for any other Biltmans (is it a real name?), or finding Peter Billman's birth record, or household examination records that would confirm his change of occupation.

    The online Jönköping web site distorts the meaning of this entry in two ways: it transcribes his last name as "Biltman" and it separates his listing from his wife's (Anna Dorothea). In the original record she follows him.
