Swan Persson, Per. Born 1765 in Skurum, Bodsjö Jämtland. Death 1836-08-24 In Skurum, Bodsjö Jämtland. The birth record of Per is not found, but his parents live in Skurum in Bodsjö during the time Per is born. Per is a Cavalryman in 1786 in Ammer. Per was in the War against Russia 1788-90. Jämtlands regiment marched for five weeks in June 1788 in burning heat to Stockholm. The regiment got patrol-duty in Stockholm, and information says that the unfamiliarity with a big city made the soldiers from Jämtland confused on the streets of Stockholm, but they were not as foolish as it seemed. The regiment’s clothing was furthermore the worst in all the army. In October 1788 half the regiment is ordered to march to Bohuslän, (I’m not sure if Per is among them who marched to Bohuslän) they stayed in Marstrand and Varberg, where many became sick. They returned in the summer of 1789 to Stockholm. In July 1789 one battalion of 400 men were shipped to Finland where part of them were involved in the combat. At Christmas 1790 the Regiment consisted of half as many that it original had. The regiment was then sent homeward to Jämtland and in 1799 Per marries Ingial and in 1804 he departs as Cavalryman and becomes a farmer. He moves there to Matviksnäset, after five years he moves to Skurum. In Per’s old age he went around the region for food, on one such a journey Per drowned in Revsund between Rind and Backen in August 1836. On Pers Death Certificate, it is stated that he has 2 authentic children and least two by false bed. He have lived evenhandedly and vigorous with diligence to work.
