Birth: Jul. 11, 1814
Death: Feb. 13, 1892

Erland was a land owner and farmer in a village then called Dahln (the Dale) near Arvika, Sweden. He and his wife Lena Nilsdotter had ten children, five of each sex, of which only their daughters survived to adulthood. One of the little boys, standing on the front porch of the house in a big nightshirt, was swept away by a funnel cloud, according to family history, and was never seen again. The eldest daughter emigrated to America with her husband and son and had a baby girl in Kansas, but all but the son died there in the 1870's. Another of Erland's daughters moved away to Dalecarlia, and one to Nericia, but two stayed in the Arvika area in Vermillandia. There are descendants of Erland and Lena all over Sweden today and in several of the United States. Three of their great-grandsons, through three of the daughters, are well known artists-illustrators. Another story has it that Erland lost his farm playing cards, but he was registered as still living there at death. He was buried in Arvika Churchyard, but the exact location of his grave is no longer known.
