I did figure out, shortly after sending the email that one of his parents
married a sibling of one of her parents. The great news is I may now be
able to find Eric Swillman's former name and maybe go back another generation
all due to your translation of that marriage record!
Thanks! Renée Ponto

I guess this means that Stina Ersdotter's, father or mother had a
named Jan, Johan, Jonas, or something similar? or that Lars
was related to Stina Ersdotter's father or mother?
Only first cousins are called cousins in Sweden, so one of his parents
was the sibling of one of her parents.
