On December 27, 1840, one hundred and seventy-two years ago today, Nils Larsson Stålberg (1810-1889), the son of Lars Larsson (1767-1842) and Maria Olofsdotter (1774-1845), married Maria Lisa Andersdotter (1821-?), the daughter of Anders Mattson Trast (?-?) and Elisabet Hjerpe (1793-?), in Sunne, Värmland Co., Värmland Province, Sweden.
