Håkans Farm

Visited again the old settlements of some of my forefathers.

  • The house on the picture is standing on the place where Erik Ersson (b. ca. 1669) helped his brother Håkan (b. ca. 1670) to start a farm in Örträsk in 1706. It has not been properly dated but might be from around 1750. (Green dot on the map)
  • The memorial stone over Helena Larsdotter (b. 1635) and Mats Hindersson (b. 1617) in Armsjö (now Lill-Armsjö) reads: “1672 Armsjö was settled by Mats Hindersson and his wife Helena. Lill-Armsjö 300 years 1972”. The Daugthers Ella and Brita married Erik and Håkan. (Blue dot on the map)
  • The red dot on the map is Erik Erssons farm in Knaften where only the foundation is left. Now kalled “Gammelhemmet”.
  • The black dot is Mikael Mikaelssons (b. 1785) farm in Östervik where some buildings are left.
