In the obit for Böret Segolsdotter, does it say that after her mother
died she went to live with Brynte in Rusgården? What else does it
--- Year 1725
Rusgården - Böret Segolsdotter born in Nedre Elgestad by father Segol
Knutsson and mother Elin Gunnarsdotter. After the mothers death she has
come to Brynte in Rusgården, who took her up as his own to raise her,
and started to teach her to read, and accustom her to virtue and
diligence in work. Been for 14 days ill, died the 19th November about
mid-day, lived 10 years, buried th 28th November.
I haven't found a Böret for these parents, but here is a Britta on 23
Jan 1716. Was that the same name?

--- 25 Jan (1716)... Segol Knutsson's and wife Elin Gunnarsdotter's
child in Elgestad... called Britta.
This is perhaps the same girl, Britta/Böret was perhaps seen as variants
of the same name.
