Olof and Agnes lived on Company Farm No. 21 in the Village of Huså. 

Olof’s father Erik was the first to clear the land on Company Farm No. 22 of branches and roots. 

Later Erik owned it together with Olof until 1792 and then Olof became the lone tenant.

On September 28, 1810, an assessment was conducted on Company Farm No. 21 in the Village of Husån, which was first built by deceased Miner Eric Grönlund. 

It was cultivated and was lived on (who built a fence in the old cow pasture}. 

In 1792, this farm was taken over by the son {Olof Grönlund} who was now working as a Miner.  There was no assessment or examination of the deceased Eric Grönlund’s buildings and croplands, which now belong to the farm tenant Olof Grönlund.  It is recorded as follows[1]:
