1880 Swedish Census:

http://www.svar.ra.se (subscription)

I cannot distinguish your Anders from the others since none had a parent named Björk (a name he may have taken for himself when he became a tailor) and none lived in the same small place in Färila where he lived in 1890 and 1900. You will need to solve this using the Swedish parish records which are far more detailed than these censuses.

1880:

I think this is Margreta Månsdotter (daughter of Måns).

Homeparish: Färila
Residence: S. Weckebo
County: Gävleborg
Page: 39
Row: 16

Fam. nr 1

Måns Persson, b. 1813 in Färila Gävleborgs län, Torpare (tenant farmer)
wife Marget Persdotter, b. 1819 in Färila Gävleborgs län
Anders Weglin, b. 1854 in Färila Gävleborgs län
Marget, b. 1859 in Färila Gävleborgs län
Per, b. 1849 in Färila Gävleborgs län
Anna, b. 1857 in Färila Gävleborgs län

I have answered your questions about Sörell elsewhere.
