Ingerid was born on October 13, 1726, on the farm Ängsnäs in Nedre Ulleruds parish, Värmlands county. Her parents were the farmer Olof Svensson and his wife Anna Nilsdotter. She was baptized on October 16.
She grew up on the farm Ängsnäs and she was still living there when, on October 27, 1751, she married the farmhand Anders Gustavsson from the farm Valtorp in the same parish. Most likely Anders moved in with Ingerid at Ängsnäs after the wedding but soon after that they moved to the farm Valtorp where Anders had grown up.
She lived in Valtorp in Nedre Ulleruds parish for the rest of her life. She died on March 30, 1779, 53 years of age.
