had his name changed to Jon Peter Jonsson Roos
(My GG Grandfather)
He was born in Lilla Gölen
Edsleskogon on March 24, 1810 He was one of 10 children
Jon-Peter Jonsson probably got his name Roos from the captain when he was recruited for the services. Jan-Peter served for rote (the military ward or station) no 65, Bergane, Tössbo Company no 7, Västgöta-Dals Regiment. That was an infantry regiment. When a man became a soldier, they could not keep their patronymic, because when the officer should command his company, too many had acted if he called Andersson or Petersson etc. Probably had the soldier in rote no 65 Bergane before Jan-Peter also the name Roos, but I am not sure about that. I guess that you already know that you can translate the name Roos with 'rose', a very beautiful name that he for sure was very proud of.
He married Katrina Jonsdotter in Edsleskog in 1834. in Edsleskog.

Gustav Jonsson Roos: Born 1834
Britta-Maja Jonsdotter Roos: Born 1836
Maria-Cajsa Jonsdotter Roos: Born 1837
Johannes Jonsson Roos: Born 1840
Jon-Peter Roos: Born 1844
Erik Jonsson Roos: Born 1851
Otto Jonsson Roos: Born 1854 (My G Grandfather)
Jon Roos died in 1881 in Bergane Edsleskog
