Olof was born on September 16 1688, most likely in Brunskogs parish, Värmlands county.
Later he married Anna Nilsdotter and in 1726 they were living on the farm Ängsnäs in Nedre Ulleruds parish, Värmlands county.
From the church books for Nedre Ulleruds parish that starts in 1733 we know that his wife's parents Nils Larsson and Gunila Jonsdotter also were living with them on the farm Ängsnäs. They both died around 1735.
In July 1760 his wife died and he became a widower. His son Sven and daughter-in-law, Anna Göstasdotter, took over the farm about the same time.
Olof lived in Ängsnäs for the rest of his life and died on January 18 1762, 73 years and 4 months old. He was buried on January 28.
