Dear G. Hokans,
While reading your gatewayed email message about Gullans names, a couple of them sounded familiar: Karl Henrick Gabrielsson Gullans and his wife Vilhelmina Henriksdotter.

While I have not made any connection to them myself, I have a book titled "På den gamla goda tiden, Övermark 1989" which is a book of names, in table form, of the ancestors of residents in Övermark, which is the parish for Närpes.

I checked in this book and found tab. 326 (194), Carl Henrik Gabrielsson Ragvals, born 14.01.1828 on Ragvals farm. Married to Vilhelmina Henriksdotter Öjst, born 23.02.1828 on the Öjst farm. She is the daughter to Henrik Henriksson (Öjst) from Yttermark, born 22.06.1799 and his wife Maja Lisa Eriksdotter Öjst, born 19.10.1805 on the Öjst farm.

Now Tab.326 refers back to Tab.194 which reads:

Farmersdaughter Anna Greta Johansdotter Ragvals, born 11.12.1799 on Ragvals farm, d. 03.09.1868 on the Ragvals farm.
Married to Gabriel Hansson, born 12.01.1793 in Östermark, died 28.11.1871 on Ragvals farm.

Mickel Gabrielsson Ragvals, born 11.11.1841 Tab. 367
Petter Gabrielsson Ragvals, born 01.02.1844

Bear in mind I have typed the dates in the same order the Swedes do: day.month.year.

Write me back if you have any questions. One thing I will tell you is, do not consider the dates in this book as gospel truth...they are subject to error because they were transcribed by volunteers in the local genealogical society and they are only human, mistakes happen. But, it does give you a very good reference point from which to verify the dates and names from if you choose to look at the microfilms of the original records.

Good luck to you.
