Fred,
Thanks for confirming my interpretation of the occupation...it's always interesting to learn how an ancestor earned his living. This is a new one for me.

And thanks for the tip regarding Grythyttan. However, is that the Grythyttan in Örebro län? That's a long way from Gladhammar in Kalmar. I took a quick look at the household records, but did not see a son named Hindrick in Johan Larsson's family.

I realize I forgot to mention what I already knew of the bridegroom...He was Hindrick Johansson, and died in Gladhammar parish 19 June 1781 at the age of 70. So that puts his birth around 1711, and I could not find any likely birth record in Gladhammar. Interestingly, there was a Hindrick born in 1712 in Grythyttan parish to Johan Hindricksson! Probably a long shot.

Thanks again for taking the time to help me!
Helen
