Comments: The story is based on information from Annelie Häggkvist from the city of Sala, who also is related to Nils Hansson. Her information is based on the story of the Vicar Magnus Petris family by A. G. Holmkvist from 1933. More information about Annelie Häggkvists branch on the page about Karin Andersdotter, born 1682.
