Biography
Born 19 May 1840 in Horn (E).
Died 8 April 1910 in Södra Vi (H).
Karolina Josefina was born in Horn (E) in 1840. In 1856 when she was 16 years old, she took a job at Norrgården in Bjerkeryd in Kisa (E). She changed to another farm in Bjerkeryd in 1857 and the next year she moved to Sörgården in Bjerkeryd and after that in 1860 she moved to Ennebo in Kisa. In 1861 Karolina Josefina left Östergötland and took a job as a maid in Kållemåla, Södra Vi (E). The next year she moved back to Östergötland to Tidersrum (E). There's something special with Karolina Josefina - she always did very well at the parish catechetical meetings and got high marks, like her mother and some of her sisters too. The wedding between her and Magnus Vilhelm took place in the parish church 1864-10-22 and the newly-married settled down at the cottage Spingan, which was an old soldier cottage, belonging to a grenadier regiment. Their son Nils Johan was born on the 20th of June 1865 and his sister Anna Lovisa was born there on the 23rd of August 1867. From Spingan in Söderhult Karolina with her family in 1868 moved to Horva in Tidersrum (E) and then the family in 1873 moved to the farm Lindefall in Södra Vi (H). In 1910 Karolina Josefina died in Södra Vi (H).

Magnus Vilhelm Nilsson. Pedigree chart Born 7 April 1840 in Kättestorp, Kisa (E).
Died 10 April 1927 in Södra Vi (H).

Magnus Vilhelm was born in Kättestorp in Kisa (E) in 1840. The date seems to vary: 1/5, 7/5 and 7/4.This latter date is found in the church book registering births and can therefore be the right one. According to Linnea Carlsson, who is a grandchild of Magnus Vilhelm, he was christened to Vilhelm because he was born on the Vilhelm day, which is the sixth of April. His father was Nils Magnus Månsson and his mother Anna Lena Persdotter. Godfathers and godmothers were Sven Månsson in Misterfall, the farmhand Sven Isak Jonsson in Vimantorp, the wife Karolina Karlsdotter ibid. and the maid Stina Sofia Persdotter in Misterfall. The Månsson family moved from Kättestorp to Havredalen, Vimantorp, the same year that his son was born. In 1843 the family moved again - this time to Boås Utjord in Kisa, where Magnus Vilhelm's father died 1844-05-06, barely 33 years old. Magnus Vilhem was four years of age at that time. The same year Magnus Vilhem and his mother moved to Sven Månsson in Misterhult (mentioned above), where Anna Lena Persdotter's sister, Greta Lisa Persdotter, was wife and mistress of the household. In the book of the parish catechetical meeting of Kisa (E) 1841-45 you can find Magnus Vilhem together with his mother, who is named the widow Anna Lena Persdotter. Magnus Vilhem moved from Kisa (E) to Tidersrum (E) in 1861. He married Karolina Josefina 1864-10-22. Their son Nils Johan was born on the 2nd of May the next year. Magnus Vilhem moved with his family to Horva in Tidersrum socken in 1868. In March 1873 Magnus Vilhem rented the farm Lindefall in the parish of Södra Vi in Småland, where the family now had moved. Later Magnus Vilhem bought Hagstugan near Trångrössle, Södra Vi. According to Linnea Carlson her brothers and sisters used to pick wood anemones and hepaticas to congratulate their grandfather on his birthday. It was important that the flowers did grow in time so the children used to take the snow away so that the plants would be ready to pick. In 1927 Magnus Vilhem died at Hagstugan in Södra Vi.

Johan's parents moved in 1868 from the crofter's holding Spingan number 48 in Söderhult, which was a soldier's small-holding, to Horva, and Johan was three years old at that time and his sister Anna Lovisa was one year old. Horva in the parish of Tidersrum (Tirserum) included 1/4 assessment unit of land and is said to be a homestead of state tax. In 1873 the family moved to Lindefall in Södra Vi, Småland. Johan was almost eight years of age at that time and another sister had been born in Horva 1871-03-19 : Karolina Matilda. Later the family Nils Johan's father (Magnus Vilhelm) bought a farm called Hagstugan near Trångrössle, Södra Vi (H), where his future wife, Hilma, spent her time growing up. When Nils Johan was going to begin school, he was sent to a village called Ramsefall about 2 miles from Lindefall. He was board and lodge a school pupil there. As time went by Johan and Hilma met and they married 1898-05-05 in Trångrössle. They moved to Örsåsa, where Hanna Linnea was born. Then they left and went to Låxbo and later on to Trångrössle.

In March 1924 Nils Johan and his family moved to the farm Djurkälla near Motala. The farm had good tilled land and a good deal of wooded ground.
