I am trying to find the parents of Borta Torstendotter, probably in the area of Frändefors/Ör parishes. A household exam from Ör said she was born in 1738, with no parish mentioned. I did not find her birth there between 1737-1739. The first record I have is her marriage to Samuel (Mattsson) Dallof in Ör on 2 Mar 1771 at Orsberg Norra. (Ör (P) C:3 (1752-1814) Image 152 / Page 295.) Samuel lived at Orsberg Norra, and no location was given for Borta. She was listed as a widow. When she died in 1789, her estate inventory (attached here: Sundals häradsrätt (P) FIIa:25 (1789) Image 59 / Page 113) named a brother, Simon Torstensson at Göbyn in Erikstad parish. Since I can’t find anything else about Borta’s early life, I thought I would try to follow her brother Simon back in time to the birth family. There is a Simon O???  at Göbyn in the Erikstad tax records and household exams. Is it possible that Simon Torstensson changed his surname when he entered a trade, and this Simon O??? is Borta’s brother? Can someone please read this surname “O???” for me (I think it starts with an O)?

In the 1785 tax record for Erikstad (attached: Mantalslängder 1642-1820, Älvsborgs län, (1785), sida 418), there is a note opposite Simon O???’s name at Göbyn (first person on the left-hand page), which I think gives where he moved from. Could someone please confirm this and read the location?

Given how incomplete the records are in this area, trying to find Borta’s parents may be a long shot, but thought I would try this way. Thank you for your help.

Simon's surname is Orre and he comes from Stombe (Stommen), see previous page. Also here in the household exam:
Erikstad (P) AI:3 (1781-1786) Bild 46 / sid 83 (AID: v3915.b46.s83, NAD: SE/GLA/13104)


PS Orre is his name as a soldier. See the previous book
Erikstad (P) AI:2 (1775-1780) Bild 39 / sid 69 (AID: v3914.b39.s69, NAD: SE/GLA/13104)


You can also find him in the central soldier register where his family name Torstensson is mentioned.

In the inventory of Börta Torstensdotter he is called the mother's brother.

Thank you very much for your help!  I could trace him back to 1761, but the records in Erikstad, and some parishes near there don't go back any further.  The Muster Roll gives his birthplace as "Dal", which doesn't help me much!  Oh well, it was worth the try.

Dal means he is born in the province of Dalsland. Here is a map with all the parishes in Dalsland:
