I would like to exchange information with anyone about the family and descendants of S. [Soldier] Sven TRYGG, born 23 Dec 1779 at Krashult, Ostra, Jönköping, Halland, Sweden; he died 11 Jul 1852 at Kongslid, Trehörna, Sweden; he married Maja JOHANSSDOTTER (born about 1777), sometime before the birth of their first child on 23 Feb 1804, Säby, Jönköping Län, Sweden.
Their children were (all born Säby, Jönköping Län): Catharina Svensdotter, born 23 Feb 1804 Joahnnes Svensson, born 19 Sep 1808, died 19 Apr 1809 at Säby, Jönköping Län Stina Svensdotter, born 8 Oct 1810 Carl Peter Svensson, born 13 Nov 1812, died 10 Mar 1817 at Säby, Jönköping Län Johannes Svensson, born 12 Aug 1815 Sven Johan, born 9 Sep 1819
I was told, many years ago, that TRYGG is a Norwegian name, though I have no idea if that is true. My husband is descended from S. Sven TRYGG and his son, Johannes Svensson. Any information would be welcome and I will gladly share what I have with others.
