    Notes 
    • Names are a bit difficult to follow in old Sweden, but Per became known as Per Caritzson-Ekman, and married Hanna Olsdotter (in America would be Olson). His occupation was "Rusthalleren" (whatever that is), and he worked in the factory in his town. The town was well-known for industry or something that was made in this factory, it is difficult to tell from the translation. This industry seemed to deteriorate in the early 1800's and things were not interesting or challenging for an able, ambitious man. Evidently, the whole family worked there, and when the slump came along, they gathered together and decided that either they would quit, or only continue if the management were handed over to them.
      Per Caritzson-Ekman at first joined in this, but then decided to leave and settle somewhere else. In those days, in order to move anywhere, one had to have a sort of 'passport' made up by the Lutheran Church district head. In October 1826, the churchman J. W. Sundias made out a report which contained the following information:
      "Per and Hanna moved to 4 1/8 mtl Önneköp in Langaröds. They had a good grasp on religious teachings and a good understanding of book learning. The children all had a good understanding of religion and education according to their ages, and all had been vaccinated!"
      Their oldest son, Nils, did not move with them. Evidently he had a good position there in Gärds. [1]
