151 He was a farmhard. He left home in 1860 and moved to Ed. In 1861 he moved from Ed to Locknevi to join his parents. In 1864 he came from Locknevi with his parents to Vimmerby. In 1864/65 there is a note regarding him: "Approberad. Burst. V. Ofm. 65o66". He moved 17 November 1865 with his parents from Vimmerby to Frederiksfors in Doderhult. When his father and younger sisters moved to Sund in 1866 he remained in Frederiksfors. He moved from Doderhult with his sister Christina 30 October 1868 to Ed. Fyrstén, Carl Johan (I1713)
 
152 He was a grenadier. He served in Tjust Company of the Andra Livgrenadjärregementet. When he enrolled in the army, he chose the soldier's name Ögrim, and was assigned to live at Fågelmossen, No. 81 Överum, Lofta. From 1859 to 1865 he had his sister Christina Carolina Svanström as a maid in his household. After his retirement in 1875 he moved to Boda under Löckerum in Gamleby, the farm of Jonas Reinhold Jonasson (not the same Jonas Reinhold Jönsson who married his sister Christina Carolina Svanström). He owned a 5/72 share of the estate. Perhaps coincidentally, Löckerum was the same place his cousin's daughter Johanna Carolina Fyrsten got pregnant 10 years earlier. In 1881 he and his wife moved to Toletorp, where they became foster parents to that same cousin's daughter. They owned 1/12 of the estate.

In addition to his nephew Adolf Ferdinand Svanström, who came to work for him 1884, he also hired his wife's sister Clara Mathilda Tillberg and her husband Nils August Skoglund. 
Ögrim, Sven August (I123)
 
153 He was a Hammersmith (Upfatharen), Master Sven, and Master Smith. The 1816 christening record of his daughter Anna Stina calls him Daniel Pehrson. He adopted the surname Fyrstén before the 1828 christening of his son Johan.

In 1819 he was a factory worker (bruksarbet) at Ofverum in Lofta. In 1822 he was an Upfatharen at Ofverum. The 1822-28 household rolls for Lofta call him a Master Sven. In 1826 he and his family moved from Lofta to Forstaströms Bruk in Gärdserum. Between 1838 and 1835 he was described as a Master Smith, and between 1836 and 1840 as an Assistant Smith. 
Fyrstén, Daniel (I715)
 
154 He was a hammersmith. His godparents were the farmer (bonde) Jaen Samuelsson and Stina Larsdotter of Faflad, and Worker Carl Stenkholm and Maid Cajsa Axelsdotter of Overum.

He left home about 1837 and lived with various families as a worker in Forsaström. From 1841-1843 he was a worker in the household of hammersmith Per Georg Kohler in Forsaströms Bruk in Gärdserum, Kalmar. In 1843 he married Christina Svanström. In 1844 and 1845 he was a mastargils and they lived in the household of Gustav Lindberg, a factory worker (bruksarbetet) at Gärdserum. On the clerical survey 1846-1850 his occupation was changed from Worker to Master Smith. From 1849 to 1850 his brother Johan lived with the family, and in 1850 his wife's sister Hedda came to live with them as a maid, and stayed until about 1855. In 1851 he was still living at Forsaströms Bruk as a mastarsven. In 1856 he was a räckaren there. In 1861 they moved to Locknevi, where he worked as a räckaren at Toverums Bruk, but sometime after 1863 his occupation changed from räckaren to smeden. On 24 October 1864 they left Locknevi and went to Vimmerby, where he worked as a hammarsmed. On 17 November 1865 they left Vimmerby and moved to Frederiksfors in Döderhult, about 5 miles from the coastal city of Oskarshamn, where he worked as a smeden. His wife died there.

He moved with his children Christina, Emma, Maria and Hedda from Döderhult 24 October 1866 to Sund. In 1867 he remarried. In 1868, during the Famine of 1867-68, Nils, his wife and his daughter Hedda left Döderhult and emigrated to North America.

I have not found him on the 1870 census, but it seems likely he was in Chicago, Illinois, where his daughters married. Chicago was then the second largest Swedish city in the world, and the destination of many Swedish immigrants.

He settled in LaPorte, Indiana. He appears on the 1880 census as Peter Fiersten (58), a farmer, and wife Johana (56). They were living next door to Andrew and Josephine Nelson, his son-in-law and daughter. He appears in the 1896 directory of LaPorte County, Indiana as Nils P. Firsten.

He appears on the 1900 census in the household of his son-in-law: August Nelson (58), wife Matilda (51) and father-in-law Peter Fyrsten (78). In 1910 he reported his age as 88. He was living with his daughter Josephine Johnson.

In Cook County, Illinois there are marriages for three women who might have been his daughters: Hattie Fyrsten married 14 December 1878 to Charles Edward Scouton.

He seems to have left no descendants in the male line. No Fyrstens were found in a 1992 search of all United States phone directories. 
Fyrstén, Nils Peter (I54493)
 
155 He was a homeowner (hemmansägaren) with 1/8 interest in Löckerum. Jacobsson, Anders Peter (I1801)
 
156 He was a judge (rådman) in Arboga. Wintrosius, Daniel Jöransson (I144580)
 
157 He was a korpralen and rusthållaren.

Hans Trybom var liksom fadern ryttare och som sådan sist korpral. Han blev också rusthållare med hemman i Åsebo och efter faderns död övertog han hemmanet i Tingetorp. Brodern Alexander var ute i krig och blev fånge i Ryssland efter slagetvid Poltava 1709. Hans hade nog inte räknat med att Alexander skulle återvända vilket han dock gjorde. Bröderna var långt ifrån ense om Tingetorp och 1724 möttes de båda vid tinget. Upprinnelsen till oenigheterna var en differens iinventariumet efter deras far och Alexander påstod att Hans hade något att dölja för honom. Hans påstod att Alexander gjort intrång i rusthållet Tingetorp, använt skällsord, brukat övervåld samt tagit ett skåp där han förvarade sinamest angelägna dokument angående deras arv. Alexander stämde samtidigt Hans för innestående arv och betalning för den silverschaminerade klädning han låtit tillverka i Kurland. Hans svarade att vad gällde de pargagrafer Alexanders stämthonom för så kunde han inte svara förrän han fick skåpet tillbaka och alla de dokument som låg däruti.Rätten fann skäligt att i denna punkt förordna länsman jämte två nämndemän att bröderna emellan jämka och likvidera det sombevisligen kunde vara utelämnat i arvskiftet. Angående de andra tvistigheterna lämnade Hans en räkning där han krävde 294 dlr 24 öre kmt som han påkostat brodern och hans hustru under tiden Alexander suttit fången i Ryssland.

Det förlorade skåpet orsakade också en annan stämning för Hans räkning. Han var förmyndare för dottersonen Salomon Tingstedt, bosatt i Grebo socken i Östergötland. 1724 vid Tjust härads vårting stämde Salomon sin morbror Hans:

1. att uppvisa bytesintrumentet efter hans sahl. föräldrar.
2. ang dess sahl moders del i rusthållet Tingetorp.
3. för skuldfordran 9 daler kopparmynt för dess sahl. moders kläder.
4. för 10 daler kopparmynt efter dess sahl. farfarder Jon Botvidsson.
5. för dess sahlig faders sadel som han tagit och nu återfodras.

Vid samma ting 1724 tilltalade Nils Jonsson i Månestad, Vårdsbergs socken sin förmyndare korp. Hans Trybom att uppvisa inventatiumet som upprättades på hans sahl. föräldrars egendom som Hans mottagit och nu påstods måtte kvittera ochutlämna.Hans påstod sig inte ha något inventarium utan allenast mottagit 3 st kor för 10 dlr styck. Nils Jonsson uppvisade en uppsats på sina sahl. föräldrars kvarlåtenskap där det uppfördes för 3 kor 15 dlr styck och för en hop andrasaker 23 dlr kmt, tillsammans 68 dlr. Hans Trybom nekade sig mottagit annat än korna och sa att Nils Jonsson själv i en kista mottagit sakerna, dock utan bevis och vittnade styvmodern hustru Christina Olsdotter i Västervik att korpralen tagitalla sakerna i sitt förvar då Nils varit ett litet barn.

1728 var det dags för ännu en stämning. Systern Maria Nilsdotter i Öjantorp, Gärdserum stämde sin bror rusthållare Hans Nilsson Trybom för att han inte gett henne betalt de 77 daler kopparmynt han efter egenhändig obligation lovat henneför hennes arvsrätt 1/9 i rusthållet Tingetorp. Obligationen var skriven den 11/12 1708 däruti han vid första tillfälle lovat henne betala samma penningar för hennes andel i munderingen. Som svar på stämingen lämnade Hans en skrift, atthan varit tvungen att avge sedeln till henne såväl som till sin svåger Boman och som han sedermera 1709 då varken häst eller mundering var för detta rusthåll måst uppsätta nu mundering och häst så förmodade han att systern inte lär hanågot att fordra då rusthållet var krono. Rätten fann att obligationen var ovillkorlig och Hans dömdes betala sin syster. 
Trybom, Hans (I12415)
 
158 He was a lawyer, Supreme Court advocate and politician. He was a district attorney for cases of treason from 1945-1947. As a politician he represented (with the nickname "Sitting Bull") the Norwegian Labour Party for a number of years as deputy mayor and mayor in Oslo in 1951-1955, 1960-1961, and 1964-1975. He was also Chairman of the Labor Court, and first Chairman of the Oslo Concert Hall. He received the St. Halvard medal, Oslo's highest honor, in 1976. Brynjulf Bull's square in Oslo is named after him. Bull, Brynjulf Friis (I1688)
 
159 He was a lecturer (lektor) in Strangnas, vicar (kyrkoherde) in Aspö and Överselö, and dean (prost) of Jäder and Barfva. Grubb, Per (I144582)
 
160 He was a lieutenant. Falkengren, Anders (I20308)
 
161 He was a lumber foreman. In 1910 he was 18, a farm laborer living at Burlingame, Kansas in the household of his brother-in-law James Shipley. He moved to Big Piney, and in 1914 married Esther Swanstrom. He registered for the World War I draft: Albert Russell Porter, age 25, ranch hand employed by Claude Daniels at Big Piney, Wyoming, married with a wife and child. He and his wife moved to Denver before 1920. The 1920 census shows him as Albert R. Porter, age 28, a railway clerk, with wife Esther (25), daughter Margaret (5), and son John (11/12). They owned their house at 4108 Sheridan Boulevard. They were at the same house in 1930: Albert R. Porter, age 37, a foreman at Newton Lumber, wife Ester F. (34), daughter Margrette J. (15), Jack R. (11), June A. (9), Betty Jane (7), Iris E. (6) and Richard P. (4). Their house was valued at $3,500. Porter, Albert Russell (I58342)
 
162 He was a machinist. He married his former teacher, Hildur Swanstrom. They made their first home on his father's ranch outside Big Piney. After some time Frank decided to go to machinist's school in Detroit, and financed the project by selling some land his father had given him. After he completed his training, the couple returned briefly to Wyoming (about 1928) before moving to Phoenix, Arizona, and ultimately to Stockton, California, where Frank owned a Buick dealership and had an automobile repair shop. Frank had a stroke when he was 62, so he retired early. He and Hildur moved back to her childhood home, Chetek, after her retirement, but Frank became ill with cancer and they returned to California. Luce, Wilford Frank (I95)
 
163 He was a master gardener (trägårdsmästare) at the mansion in Odesviholms, Odensvi when he married Agneta Rising. By 1774 he was at Kleva, where he died in 1791 at the age of 75. Wistedt, Magnus (I11159)

170 He was a rancher, and a mechanic for the U.S. Soil Conservation Service. His birth certificate says that his name was Henry William Swanstrom, although he does not appear to have ever used that name. He was always called Harry. He was baptized in 1907 at the Stotler Church in Burlingame, Kansas, a Swedish Church. His baptismal certificate, in the care of his daughter Jeanne Swanstrom, was printed and written in Swedish. The pastor's name on the certificate is Peter Persson. His godparents were Mr and Mrs E. E. Olson and Mr and Mrs Gust Olson. The Olsons were brothers, and step-brothers to the lay minister Peter Persson.

Harry started school in Marbleton, Wyoming, and completed the 8th grade. He long remembered the truck farm his brother Hugo had at Marbleton. Chickens were one of the main crops and it was Harry's job to take care of them, cleaning the coops and plucking them. Throughout his adult life he would never eat chicken.

Harry left home to join the circus when he was 14 (1917), when his family was living "on the Muddy Creek" near Big Piney. He must have returned, because he appears on the 1920 census in his brother Hugo's household, although he was not in school and had no occupation. The Swanstroms were living "near" the family of Harry's future wife, Vivian Luce. They appear on the same page of the census. The Luces lived on New Fork. They were enumerated on January 30. The Swanstroms lived at Marbleton. They were enumerated the next day, on January 31.

Harry spent two years in the army (about 1925-1927) and was stationed in the Philippines. He returned home to Rock Springs after his discharge in 1927 and married Vivian Luce that fall. They appear on the 1930 census at 602 B Street in Rock Springs. He was working as a tractor driver for the State Highway Department; she was working as a nurse. They were renting rooms and reported their rent as $27.

"The following Daniel people got their elk during the past special opening of the season: Alec Price, Elden Hibben, Ward Blackmon, Bernie Payne, L. W. Sargent, Bill Sargent, and Harry Swanstrom" (Pinedale Roundup, Pinedale, Wyo., Thurs. Jan. 4, 1934).

Harry worked for a while in the Park City, Utah coal mines, then for Woodward Construction, then six years for the Highway Department, first in Rock Springs, then in Daniels. In 1934 he and his wife were living in a trailer next door to his wife's best friend Mabel Eberle, at Daniels, Wyoming.

They later moved to Farson, where they had a farm (Sections 8 and 17, T25N, R105W, 6th P. M.). They appear on the 1940 census in Farson: Harry Swanstrom (36), born in Wisconsin; wife Vivian (37), born in Wyoming; daughter Betty Jo (5), born in Wyoming; daughter Jean (3), born in Wyoming; and son Wallace (7/12), born in Wyoming. Harry was listed as a Farmer with his Own Farm. He and his wife were living in the same house where they had lived in 1935.

On 19 January 1946 Harry recorded the H Lazy S brand. Harry lived here until his death in 1957, except for one winter that the family lived in Tooele, Utah.

Somewhere along the way, he learned to play the saxophone. He was raised Lutheran, but did not affiliate with any particular church as an adult. Harry had a single superstition: he would not work on Friday the 13th. He was a Republican.

Warned by doctors that he had a heart condition, Harry continued to live life to the fullest. He died of a heart attack on the farm in Farson. He is remembered as a laughing, easy-going man, whom all the local children knew and loved.

171 He was a seaman. He might have been the Magnus Pehrsson, seaman, age 48, who died 19 June and was buried 22 June 1762 at Västervik. Holmström, Magnus (I623)

Vedberg, Jonas (I5255)
 
174 He was a soldier under Sweden's allotment system. He enlisted 7 October 1846 in Sevede Company, Royal Kalmar Regiment, and was assigned to Sundet (No. 16 Ekevik), a soldier's croft in Ukna. The enrollment record shows his height as 6'1'. In 1847 he came from Gärdserum to Ukna. He married Anna Jaensdotter the same year.

He was discharged from the army 1 January 1877 due to sickness and moved to a new house near Sundet, which he called Strömsborg (Stream Castle). The soldier who succeeded him at Sundet was Carl Oskar Johansson Svanström, who was not a relative, but who, like many soldiers, took the surname of his predecessor as more convenient for the military authorities.

The allotment system remained in use up until 1901, when mandatory conscription, with 8-9 months of military service, was introduced. The allotment system was finally abolished in 1904. 
Svanström, Karl Johan (I117)
 
175 He was a soldier. Filipsson, Erik (I138929)
 
176 He was a soldier. He might have been the Sven Jonsson, born 20 December 1719 at Kullstugan in Dalhem, and christened 27 December 1719, son of Jonas Svensson and Kerstin Svensdotter. He came to Kullstugan from Westansjö at the time of his marriage in 1744. The earliest reference I find for the surname Wåhlstrand is the 1749 christening record for his son Anders.

-----

"I believe, from everything I have learned, that Sven Jonsson Höckert was in the military and took the name Höckert. I can't find or figure out where the name Wåhlstrand comes from though. Sven Jonsson Wåhlstrand was born December 20, 1719 in Westansjö, Dalhem, Kalmar, Sweden. He was christened December 27, 1719, son of Jonas Svensson and Kerstin Svensdotter. He came to Kullstugan from Westansjö at the time of his marriage in 1744. The earliest reference found for the surname Wåhlstrand is the 1749 christening record for his son Anders. (Taken from geni.com on 4/4/11)

they reside in Litter in Dalhem and the children are

1.Chierstin 18/9 1745
2.Jonas 4/6 1747
3.Anders 23/12 1749
4.Anna 22/8 1751
5.Elisabeth 12/10 1755

2.Jonas is served o befallningsman on Tyllinge. He married Helen Persdtr o the children Sven 22 / 6 1781 Buttorp Dalhem
Anna 17/8 1782 Tyllinge Dalhem
Sven 9/3 1785 Tyllinge
Catharina 27/10 1788 Tyllinge
Carl Petter 6/5 1790 Tyllinge - married to Christina
1.Lisa Eriksdtr
2.Anna Sofia Strid and had 10 children.
Fredrika Helena 4/12 1793 Tyllinge
Jonas Fredrik 25/4 1797 Tyllinge

Wåhlstrand is most definitely a military name which Sven acquired when joining the army sometime around 1740. Before that he was just known as Sven Jonsson (=Jon's son). His father's name must have been Jon or Jonas. There was a Sven born in Dalhem parish on Dec 20, 1719 - son of Jonas Svensson in Domra and his wife Kerstin Svensdotter. This might be our Sven, but there is no real evidence so this is just my assumption.

From http://www.swanstrom.org/macdowell.html

Duwall Family in Sweden

The Macdowalls of Makerston descend from Sir Dougal MacDowall, younger son of Sir Dougal, 2nd of Garthland. Of this line, Tobias Albert Macdowall of Makerston (abt 1541-1641) emigrated from Scotland to Mecklenburg, and much later, about 1594, settled in Sweden. In 1626 he was Baliff of Örbyhus and Tierp in Uppsala län. He died in 1641, nearly 100 years old, having outlived seven of his nine sons - all of whom were officers in the Swedish army. His son Jakob Albrektsson Duwall (1589-1634) had a distinguished military career and was posthumously created a Baron in 1674.

Baron Sven Johan Duwall (1746-1819), a descendant of Jakob Duwall, had an estate at Tyllinge in Dalhem. His bailiff (befallningsman or betjänt) was Jonas Svensson Wåhlstrand (1747-1800), an ancestor of the Svanström family.

1. Sven Jonsson Wåhlstrand (1719-1778), Soldier at Kullstugan in Dalhem. He married Anna Andersdotter.

2. Jonas Svensson Wåhlstrand (1747-1800), Baliff of Tyllinge in Dalhem. He married Helena (Lena) Persdotter.

3. Anna Ingrid Wåhlstrand (1782-1850). She married Peder Jönsson Honnett (1780-1831), a cavalry soldier at Börsebo in Gärdserum. He fought in the Napoleonic Wars, was taken prisoner in 1805 and never returned. He is thought to have died at a prison camp in Russia, with others of his unit.

4. Inga Lena Honnett (1803-1870). She married Jonas Svanström (1794-1881), a tailor at Landsberg u Broddebo in Gärdserum.

He was a soldier. He might have been the Sven Jonsson, born 20 December 1719 at Kullstugan in Dalhem, and christened 27 December 1719, son of Jonas Svensson and Kerstin Svensdotter. He came to Kullstugan from Westansjö at the time of his marriage in 1744. The earliest reference I find for the surname Wåhlstrand is the 1749 christening record for his son Anders.

-----

I believe, from everything I have learned, that Sven Jonsson Höckert was in the military and took the name Höckert. I can't find or figure out where the name Wåhlstrand comes from though. Sven Jonsson Wåhlstrand was born December 20, 1719 in Westansjö, Dalhem, Kalmar, Sweden. He was christened December 27, 1719, son of Jonas Svensson and Kerstin Svensdotter. He came to Kullstugan from Westansjö at the time of his marriage in 1744. The earliest reference found for the surname Wåhlstrand is the 1749 christening record for his son Anders.

Sven 9/3 1785 Tyllinge
Catharina 27/10 1788 Tyllinge
Carl Petter 6/5 1790 Tyllinge - married to Christina
1.Lisa Eriksdtr
2.Anna Sofia Strid and had 10 children.
Fredrika Helena 4/12 1793 Tyllinge
Jonas Fredrik 25/4 1797 Tyllinge

Wåhlstrand is most definitely a military name which Sven acquired when joining the army sometime around 1740. Before that he was just known as Sven Jonsson (=Jon's son). His father's name must have been Jon or Jonas. There was a Sven born in Dalhem parish on Dec 20, 1719 - son of Jonas Svensson in Domra and his wife Kerstin Svensdotter. This might be our Sven, but there is no real evidence so this is just my assumption.

Duwall Family in Sweden

The Macdowalls of Makerston descend from Sir Dougal MacDowall, younger son of Sir Dougal, 2nd of Garthland. Of this line, Tobias Albert Macdowall of Makerston (abt 1541-1641) emigrated from Scotland to Mecklenburg, and much later, about 1594, settled in Sweden. In 1626 he was Baliff of Örbyhus and Tierp in Uppsala län. He died in 1641, nearly 100 years old, having outlived seven of his nine sons - all of whom were officers in the Swedish army. His son Jakob Albrektsson Duwall (1589-1634) had a distinguished military career and was posthumously created a Baron in 1674.

Baron Sven Johan Duwall (1746-1819), a descendant of Jakob Duwall, had an estate at Tyllinge in Dalhem. His bailiff (befallningsman or betjänt) was Jonas Svensson Wåhlstrand (1747-1800), an ancestor of the Svanström family.

1. Sven Jonsson Wåhlstrand (1719-1778), Soldier at Kullstugan in Dalhem. He married Anna Andersdotter.

2. Jonas Svensson Wåhlstrand (1747-1800), Baliff of Tyllinge in Dalhem. He married Helena (Lena) Persdotter.

3. Anna Ingrid Wåhlstrand (1782-1850). She married Peder Jönsson Honnett (1780-1831), a cavalry soldier at Börsebo in Gärdserum. He fought in the Napoleonic Wars, was taken prisoner in 1805 and never returned. He is thought to have died at a prison camp in Russia, with others of his unit.

4. Inga Lena Honnett (1803-1870). She married Jonas Svanström (1794-1881), a tailor at Landsberg u Broddebo in Gärdserum. 
Wåhlstrand, Sven (I4600)
 
177 He was a soldier. In 1752 he joined the army and took the military surname Cavat, which means "plucky" or "brave". He served in the Sevedes Company of the Royal Kalmar Regiment (Infantry). The regiment consisted of 1,184 men in two battalions of four companies. Each company had 137 privates and 11 officers, NCOs and musicians.

Peter was assigned to live at Kamdalen (No. 9 Svenserum), a soldier's croft about seven miles southwest of Gärdserum, on the shore of a small lake, Hemgöl. The rusthållare, or man responsible for equipping him as a soldier, was farmer Erik Gerdeman (1710-1779), of Svenserum. Prior to enlisting, Peter Cavat was probably a tenant of Gerdeman's, perhaps a relative.

From 1756 to 1763 Europe was disrupted by the Seven Years War with Sweden, Austria, France, Russia and Spain on one side, against England and Prussia on the other. In the North American colonies this conflict was called the French and Indian War. The Swedish name for the war was Pommerska kriget (the Pomeranian War).

A military roll dated 1757 says Petter Cavat was 23-1/2 years old and had served 4-3/4 years in the army. Peter's regiment remained in Sweden at the outbreak of the war, but in 1758 six companies (900 men) were sent to Pomerania as reinforcements against the Prussians, probably when Count Gustav David Hamilton took command on June 27. There are few details. On 18 November 1758 some elements of the regiment were present at the Battle of Güstow. On 25 November 1758, 160 men from the regiment were occupying a redoubt outside Werbelow, when a party of 40 men from another regiment took refuge there. The 200 men held off a Prussian assault until reinforcements arrived. Petter Cavat might have been involved in one or both these battles.

Gen. Hamilton resigned on 23 November 1758. Jacob Albrecht von Lantinghausen was appointed commander on 19 December. The Swedish forces wintered in Pomerania. On 9 January 1759 Gen. Lantinghausen and the Swedish army retired to Stralsund. The Prussians immediately surrounded Demmin and laid siege to the Swedish garrison there. On 17 January the Prussian battery made a gap in the Swedish defenses around Demmin. The Prussians then launched an amphibious attacked and drove the Swedes out of the outpost on the Meyenkebs side of the Peene. On 18 January, short of ammunition, Col. Lillienberg surrendered the town of Demmin. His troops were allowed to march out of the town with their colors, fifers and drummers before becoming prisoners of war.

In 1759 Peter Cavat was taken prisoner by the Prussians at Demmin, probably on 17 January, when the Prussian army captured the town, but perhaps on 22 October when the Prussians surprised the town (which had been re-taken by the Swedes), seized the Swedish war chest, and retired to Malchin. That morning, when the gates of Demmin were opened, the Prussians launched a surprise attack. The town was defended by only 60 men of the Posseska Infantry under the command of Capt. Kjull Kristoffer Baron Barnekow and Lt. Ehrencrona. The Posseska regiment was raised in 1743 at Stralsund, and consisted mostly of Germans. The small garrison threw itself into houses and bravely defended itself for an hour, losing 25 men dead or wounded, and was finally forced to surrender. The Swedish hussar who should have warned the garrison of the Prussian approach had gotten drunk on his way and had been captured by the Prussians.

Peter Cavat never returned. The Prussians had a tremendous hatred for the Swedes and he was probably killed by them. He was deleted from military rolls on 30 June 1764.

Ancestry

DNA testing shows the Svanström family are relatively close relatives of a Briese family in Prussia and Poland, and closer still to a Kruse family from Schleswig-Holstein.

Michael Briese, born about 1738 was a property owner (Eigenthümer) at Potzymowo in what is now Poland. Many German families settled in this area in the mid-1700s at the request of the local Polish nobility, who wanted to re-build estates that had been decimated by cholera and war. At the Second Partition of Poland in 1793, this area became part of Prussia.

Peter Cavat was not the Per Jonasson, born 14 November 1732 in Kvarntorp, son of Jonas Presser (Behrendtz 2007). He might have been a nephew of the Ingeborg Persdotter Svanström of Åtvid, who was born about 1713, married Nils Vedberg in 1741, and died in 1781 at Sjöbacka, Åtvid.

Cavat seems to have been the name used for soldiers at Gårdveda in Målilla in the Royal Kalmar Regiment. The four Cavats listed in the Centrala Soldatregistret all came from that unit. None were named Johan or Jonas, so none would have been father of Petter Jönsson Cavat:

- Pehr Pehrsson Cavat, born 1698
- Sune Amundsson Cavat, born 19 September 1705, died 5 july 1742
- Magnus Sunesson Cavat, born 1728 (perhaps son of his predecessor)
- Pär Nilsson Cavat, died 19 July 1743

Peter Cavat was not the Peter Johansson, born 21 July 1732 at Målilla to Johan Samuelsson and Christina Jonsdotter (FamilySearch.org). That Peter died 14 Aug 1801 at Målilla.

The soldiers known to have served at Svenserum were:
- Olof Andersson, unknown
- Per Nilsson, unknown
- Per Persson, unknown
- Per Torsson, unknown
- Sven Nilsson Lustig, born 1685, died 10 January 1739
- Joel Broberg, born 1692
- Lars Gerdström, born 1721
- Petter Jönsson Cavat, died 1759
- Jonas Svanström, born 30 July 1754, died 1811
- Nils Andersson Nelli, born 1786
- Carl Berggren, born 1787
- Anders Blücker, born 1793, died 4 March 1850
- Lars Petter Larsson Sund, born 23 January 1821
- Anders Petter Johansson Spjut, born 29 April 1835, died 23 March 1919
- Gustaf Albin Finn, born 21 February 1866

He was also active in Mesa County Sheriff's Posse.

There are photos of him and of his first wife at the Illinois State Historical Library, donated by Justin C. S. Howery.

From a 12 February 2001 telephone conversation with William Fitch, a CPA in Grand Junction:

Fitch was able to tell me that he knew Carroll and Donna for about 21 or 22 years (since June 9, 1978, when they first moved next door to him). Fitch remembers the date because it was the day before his daughter was born, and Carroll died the day after the same daughter's birthday.

Donna and Carroll were married briefly many years ago, divorced because of his drinking, but remained close friends who sometimes lived together and sometimes didn't. Donna was a pharmacy clerk at Mesa Drug when they met, with two children from a previous marriage. Carroll and Donna moved to Dallas together, then to Idaho, then back to Grand Junction. The house in Grand Junction belonged to Donna, paid for with money from her previous marriage. Carroll and Donna talked about getting houses side-by-side, but never did. One of Donna's sons died in an airplane accident; the other was beaten and later died. Carroll and Donna took care of that son at the end. Since Carroll's death, Donna doesn't have anyone. Fitch looks after her.

Carroll worked as a superintendent for Green Tree, a home construction company in Grand Junction (and a client of Fitch). Green Tree built Donna's house. Carroll had a shoulder operation in early 2000, and after the operation complained that he couldn't breathe. The doctor diagnosed a rare lung disease and didn't think that Carroll would live past Easter. Because of Carroll's strong constitution, he lasted until June. They had to put him in a nursing home because Donna was too frail to take care of him. (She has MS.) The nursing home is one of the best. Fitch's own father was there and died five years ago. Donna visited Carroll every day, usually getting Fitch or Fitch's wife to drive her over there. Carroll had difficulty at the end because he couldn't breathe, but went fast and in relatively little pain. Carroll was cremated at his own request. He didn't want any kind of service, which is why he had no obituary. He particularly didn't want his brother involved. He never mentioned any of us to Fitch, so Fitch had no idea that Carroll had other family. Donna keeps Carroll's ashes in the garage, where she can go out and talk to him.

Carroll left everything to Donna, which wasn't much. Fitch has a copy of the will and offered to send me a copy. (I declined). Fitch arranged to get Carroll on Medicare at the end, and the state paid for the last two months in the nursing home. Donna paid for the rest and for the cremation.

Fitch remembers Carroll and Donna as being very devoted to each other, a nice old couple who walked around the neighborhood together. Carroll stored one of Fitch's antique cars in his garage, and groused about an oil leak, but was good- natured through it all -- although very feisty and, while he was in the nursing home, very demanding. Fitch remembers Carroll as being a very steady sort and a hard worker. Fitch invites any of us to call anytime (office 970-245-1520). He'd be glad to talk about Carroll if that will help, although he doesn't think he knows any more than what he's already told me. He asks that we don't call Donna, because it's been hard for her to lose Carroll and she can't take the emotional strain of talking about it.

Update June 2006: His ashes were apparently interred in Donna's plot at Orchard Mesa Cemetery in Grand Junction. Update April 2020: Nope, the Fitches don't remember what they did with the ashes. 
Place, Carroll Arthur (I337)
