Catharina was born in 1773, on October 26, on Kaggbols properties in Dannemora parish, Uppsala county. She was the first child to the miner Eric Löf and his wife Maria Smedberg.

In the year 1797, Cathatina and her sister took places as maidservants in Ekeby in Lena parish. Catharina returned to Dannemora in September 1799. She had earlier in the summer married the minehand and widower Jan Gisselberg from Gisselby in Dannemora parish.

Catharina, who in the churchbooks is called Cajsa, moved to her husband in Gisselby, where their children were born. Their first child was a daughter, named Britta Stina, born in 1801. She died, only two years old, in 1803. Their second child was born in 1804 and named Eric. Eric, though, never had the chanse to see his father, because Jan Gisselberg died during the Fall in 1803.
