The following post continues the month long Fearless Females Challenge by Lisa Alzo, author of The Accidental Genealogist blog, which is focused on “celebrating and honoring ‘fearless females’ in our family trees” to mark National Women’s History Month, which is the month of March, with a post responding to unique prompts for each day of the month.

Prompt for March 9 — Take a family document (baptismal certificate, passenger list, naturalization petition, etc.) and write a brief narrative using the information.

Kerstin Nilsdotter (1841-1870) was born on September 26, 1841 in Svineberg Otternäset, Sunne Parish, Värmland Co., Värmland Province, Sweden the daugher of Nils Nilsson (1815-?) and Ingeborg Persdotter (1814-?). On April 24, 1863 Kerstin married Lars Magnus Nilsson Stålberg (1842-?) on Sunne Parish, with whom she had five children, twins Inga and Kristina, Emma, Hilma, and Anna Elizabeth Stålberg (1869-1918), my 3rd great grandmother. At some point between the birth of her fourth and fifth child, the family moved to Söderhamn Parish, Gävleborg Co., Hälsingland Province, Sweden. On November 29, 1870, nearly one year and ten months after the birth of her fifth child, Kerstin died in Söderhamn Parish from peritonitis puerperalis (or inflamation of the peritoneum).
