Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1755, Sweden
Death: unknown, Sweden

Lars Öknaberg (1755-?) was a soldier in the Väster Rekarne Company of the Södermanlands Regiment in Sweden from 1778 to 1797. He served in the Russo-Swedish War (1788-1790). He was discharged for his lewd behavior in 1797. He appears to have taken his name from the Ökna soldattorp (Ökna soldiers croft) in Torshälla parish where he lived.

He was born in 1755. The Södermanlands Regiment database uses 1758.

He joined the military on December 8, 1778. He served in the Russo-Swedish War (1788-1790)

He married Brita Olsdotter (c1760-?) around 1790. It is possible they were not married and just had a child together.

He had one known child: Brita Christina Öknaberg (1793-?) who was born on September 28, 1793 at Torshälla parish, Södermanland, Sweden. Brita will later marry Lars Magnus Wingblad on October 10, 1824 at Katarina parish, Stockholm, Stockholm, Sweden.

He was discharged from the military as "lecherous" on June 8, 1797 and he moved to Dalby, Sweden in 1798.

His death date has not been found yet.

Lars Öknaberg (1755-?) was the fourth great-grandfather of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).

Researched and written by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) for Findagrave starting on November 23, 2005. Updated on January 5, 2011 with information from Lennart Haglund who found Lars Ökneberg in the Södermanlands Regiment database. It provided the more accurate birth year and that he was discharged in 1797 for lewdness. Updated on February 25, 2014 with information from Tommy Högberg who provided the images of the Ökna soldattorp and with information on the Russo-Swedish War (1788-1790).
