Research[edit | edit source]
- Researched and written by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ). On May 2, 2014 his birth in Örebro, Sweden was searched for and not found because the baptism book for Örebro Nikolai for the years 1666 to 1692 is no longer extant. Updated on May 2, 2014 with his death in Rödön, Jämtland, Sweden.
- Yvonne Öhrbom writes on May 4, 2014: "Yes , in the Death-book for Rödön 1716-1751, C:2, page 224, I can read that he was buried 5 June 1740, in his 66 years age. I have copies from the Swedish war archive, there Anders Ö. by himself wrote; is born in Örebro, my age is 47 years, served for 31 year. Örebro 20 October 1722 and his name And. Örbom (it will be 1675) I have also his Track record. There is no churchbook for birth 1675 in Örebro St. Nicolai. In the book "Norrländska Slägter" - O.C. Ahlström; Anders Örbom born Maj 9, 1675 Örebro and died Maj 25 1740. Buried in Rödö Church 1740. I have been there, and a Verger tell me, the Church had burned, and all skeletals under the floor was moved out to the cemetery. I have also been at Fryele Church and cemetery. I had a meeting with two persons who know a lot from older times. They know where the area is, there Von Thor and Näsbyholm had places for their graves. But they had to take this area to other graves, because there was no other place for new ones! We know the area but not the exact place for Johan Christoffer v. Rohr`s grave. I also visited the Cemetery Management, and talk with a man, but he had not dates for graves from that time long ago. But he will Contact County Museum in Jönköping for their opinion, because they decide about this. So I wait just now for answer from him !! This will be a long letter ! But I want to tell you , I have do DNA-Test, FamillyTreeDNA, that you told me for two years ago. And I have got Test-results on my side. I Think it is a Little difficult to understand.! In June I shall take a trip to Russia and look at Viborg and Kexholm, and in July I shall take a trip to Austria, for look at the Place were Von Rohr was coming from. It is a Place near Linz."
