    Notes 
    • According to Cora, wealthy, may have owned and bred race horses. Killed by a horse.

      Other sources say murdered and the villain was never caught. Murdered according to Jan Webb posting. Died in Berghem Andersgard.

      According to the Kånna church book’s death record, as translated by Carl Johan: “Died very hurt. The skull cracked, probably during a fight (man to man). Beaten to death." Carl Johan’s additional comments: He died of a skull fracture. It seems that the authorities speculated that he was beaten to death. It also states that the main suspect has escaped.

      Cora would have gotten her claim of “killed by a horse” from Al or from Bess or Maurice who heard it from Al. Perhaps Al really didn’t know or else was citing an alternative theory that the family (and his mother) may have preferred. Perhaps “the authorities” reasoned that a Traveller was as likely to have been murdered as to have been killed by a horse.

      An alternative birth history for Salomon, according to Terry: 9-16-1839 in Hamneda, Kronoberg Iän, Smaland.

      His age at death was “36 years, 3 months, 17 days” according to the death record. (That would put his birth at 6 Sep 1840.) His death record also shows that he was married when he died and that he was a bonden or peasant farmer.

      In neither Annerstad nor Hamneda birth records for 1838, 1839, or 1840. There were only two Salomons born in that period in Annerstad. One was born on January 9, 1839, to Jonas Johansson and Brita Andersdotter. The other was born on June 17, 1840, to Pehr Bengstsson and Elin Andersdotter. No one was born in Annerstad on September 6, 1839. A Salomon Carlsson was born in 1839 in Södra Ljunga according to Patrick Johnson. That Salomon was born on March 5 (bapt. March 10) to Carl Andersson and Britta Maja Simonsdatter.

      The Household Examination for Annerstad 1844-1851, p. 282 (”135/147, vol. 2”) shows Anna Andersdotter, pige (so unmarried), b. 10 Mar 1814, living with her two illegitimate children: Martha, b. 1 April 1843, and Salomon, b. 16 Sept 1839. The surname for Martha is not legible but it could be Carlson but seems more likely to be something like Christsson. Magdalena (#7261) should also have been listed here but wasn’t. There is no surname for Salomon.

      He and his family are not in the Annerstad Household Examination for 1872-1876.

      Salomon and family moved to Berghem Andersgärd in Kånna on November 7, 1873.

      Probably at least a half-brother of Magdalena (#7261).
