Thank you, Bo. Were both husbands named Oluf Nilsson? I thought the
second one looked like Nils Olufsson.
--- Yes, my error, Dordi Börjesdotter's first husband was named Oluf
Nilsson, and the second Nils Olufsson.
If the Dordi Börjesdotter, born in 1618, was the mother of Abbelo,
born 1663, she was fairly old but possible. She died in 1698, making
her fit the mother of Oluf Nilsson on the HFL for Nedre Elgestad.
--- It's always possible there are some errors in the records, for
example the priest COULD have confused which Dordi Börjesdotter was born
1618, so perhaps your Dordi was actually younger than 80 at her death.
In the HFL she is recorded as 70 years old in 1794, of course that could
be an error instead. Or both be errors...
There seems to be no birth records older than 1669, so perhaps the birth
year was just calculated from an assumed age of 80 at her death.
I couldn't find a death record for Nils Olsson around 1695, but then
the handwriting was just too difficult for me to read. I think I'll
have to be satisfied with finding Dordi.
--- To complicate matters, i noticed a 3rd Dordi Börjesdotter, this one
from Gruvan(?), buried 1 Mar 1796, age 50 and 6 years.

But the one you found was from Elgestad, but not the other two...
Plus in 1794 there is 40-years-old maid at Nedre Elgestad named Dordi
Börjesdotter. Perhaps this is the one who died at Ånebohl(?) in 1795?
I followed Olof Nilsson of Nedre Elgestad and found his death record.
It lists the same parents as those for Abbelo Nilsdotter.
Köla F:2 (1719-1747) Image 80 / page 153 (AID: v6161.b80.s153, NAD: SE/VA/13309)
--- He is recorded as age 76 in 1742, which would make his birth 1766, a
little late for a woman born 1618 (but not impossible).
But he is recorded as 24 years old in 1795, so perhaps the ages in the
HFL are a little in doubt?
There was a Börje Nilsson listed next to Abbelo in 1711 and on
Elgestad in 1703-1709 and again in 1712. I lost him after that. He
may be the third of Dordi's sons.
Thanks so much for all your help.
