I am researching my 2-g-grandfather, Nils Peter Thunqvist.
I had a researcher do work a few years ago, and was given
b. 16 Jul 1809, Misterhult, Småland, d. 7 Dec 1897, Oskarshamn,
Småland. I see the family in Fliseryd Household Examinations
1841-1853 (GID 27.7.97500).

OK, carpenter Nils Peter Thunqvist at number 122, born 1809-09-21, died
I was told she could not find his birth
on the given date in Misterhult, but saw a Nils Peter born on 16
Sep 1809 (I see him at GID 109.23.31800, right side of book).
I'm at a loss as to what it says, could someone please take a
look, and tell me if you think this is likely my Nils Peter,
and translate what the birth record says?

There is also a Nils Peter born 5 Feb 1809, parents Nils Nilsson and
Maria Persdotter at Vikerum(?) (GID 109.23.31600).
And a Nils Peter born 16 Sep(??) 1809, parents "torpare" Jonas Andersson
and Brita Nilsdotter of Jägersjömåla(?) (GID 109.23.31900).
You can try follow these boys forwards in the HFL books, or trace the
Nils P. from 1843 backwards, to see when and where he was really born.
For example, he is as son-in-law with wife, son and wife's parents and
siblings at Hälleforshult in GID 27.5.23200, [Kalmar] Fliseryd, AI.4,
Household examination, 1826-1835, page 220-320, Image 138.
He had come from "qvarnen" (the mill), and he is with his parents,
miller Jonas Andersson Thunqvist and Brita Nilsdotter at "Qvarnen" on
page 222/326 (GID 27.5.23500).
So it seems the boy born 16 Sep 1809 is your Nils Peter.
