... He was for his audience a good teacher that understood and had the ability to put all to its best, and for his family he was a loving father. During his long term service in Hede his health, through repeated colds, became bad. His explanation, that he only held himself to the cross of Christ, shows what kind of temperament he had. He was married at Östbacken in Hede on March 23, 1821 to Johanna Gustafva Ruuth. She was born on January 11, 1800, the daughter of the reverend in Hede John Christopher Ruth and Catherine Maria Martinell. Johanna died in Ytterlännäs vicarage from a difficult sickness on February 15, 1860.
