Monika Carlsson writes:
"Anders Örbom was born May 9, 1675 in Örebro. He took his name after the city of Örebro. His fathers name was Brask and was a District Court Judge in Örebro. Anders joined the military in 1691 and took part in 1700 when the young King Karl XII took his army in the field. On July 7, 1701 the Swedish army broke camp north of Riga, and on the night of July 9, they took a boat over the Duna, a broad river (600 meters wide). There they were conquered the Saxony troops and took about 700 prisoners. Anders Örbom participated in the battle in the Battle of Klisow in Poland on July 9, 1702 where the Swedish were victorious over the Saxon army, under the command of August II, together with 8,000 men of the Polish kings army. In 1706, Anders Örbom was named Lieutenant with Jämtland's rifle regiment and participated on July 4, 1708 in the battle of Holowzin, a town in White Russia, west of the river Dnjepe. While around 40,000 Russian men, endured heavy losses, 17,000 Swedes were forced to flee. Anders was wounded by a bullet in the face. He died with the bullet still lodged in his skull in 1740. The road over the Dnjepe had opened for the Swedish army. Karl XI's Russian campaign ended in 1709 with the battle in Poltava, a town in Ukraine. The King was badly injured and could not complete the guidance of the assault so he fled towards Turkey. The Swedish Army surrendered on July 1, 1709 in the village of Perevolotjna near the Dnjepe. 79 regiments and corps, totaling around 14,000 men were handed over for long term care and a very difficult Russian captivity. In 1722, after 13 years, the prisoners were transported home. Anders Örbom and his wife first settled in Brunflo outside Östersund, the on Rödögården, Rödön in Jämtland. [On his] homecoming, Anders was promoted to cavalry Captain with Jämtland's cavalry company, and in 1727 became squadron chief."

Sven Johan Kardell wrote in Swedish in Minnen från fjällbygden och Fyrisvall: "Jämtlandsslägten Örbom härstammar från Anders Örbom, hvilken var bördig från Nerike (Örebro?). Under Carl XII:s krig råkade han i rysk fångenskap. Återkommen hem bodde han först i Brunflo och sedan i Rödön, där han dog såsom ryttmästare år 1740, 65 år gammal, och begrofs i Rödö kyrka d. 5/e samma år. Med sin hustru Anna Elis. Bohr hade han många barn. Bland dem må här nämnas Sönerne Anders, Erik Johan, Carl Joachim och Christopher, hvilka alla blefvo militärer. Anders blef ryttmästare och bodde på Berge i Brunflo. Gift 1751 m. Kristina Runt (f 1781) hade han, jemte flera andra barn, sonen Carl Johan, Z:s i texten nämda informator, f. 1756 blef denne slutligen justitieråd. Erik Johan blef major och bodde på Rödögården i Rödön. Han gifte sig 1755 med Helena Ruuth. Carl Joachim blef kapten; han bodde på Lillviken i Brunflo. Hans första hustru Beata Dor. von Saltza dog i Lit d. 10/12 1764. 1771 gifte enklingen om sig med Anna Catherine Gestrich (jfr. texten). Christopher var 1775 löjtnant. De både nämda mansellerna Ruut voro döttrar till öfverstelöjtnant Gust. Ruut. Denne, f. 1681 i Upland och Rasbo Kil af kaptenen vid Uplands regemente Nils Ruut och Catherine Wattman, hade från 1696 varit anstäld vid Uplands regemente samt varit med på Själland, vid Clissow, Thorn, Holofzin och Pultava, där han blef fången. Under fångenskapen gifte han sig i Zaranski med Helena von der Hude från Dorpt, som förut varit gift 2 gånger (f 1754). Hemkommen placerades han 1723 på Jämtlands regemente och bodde sedan på Söre i Lit.
