Hi Martin --
Thank you again for broadening my understanding of Eva's life.
I took out a brief subscription to Archive Digital, but have had no luck with the court records they have; they all seem to be Estate Inventories, which, of course, was not the kind of thing these particular ancestors would have been worried about! I did look at the Stadarkiv, but it looks like court records are not digitized. I need to look into what I can do, how I can locate the specific records and access them, so I will send them a query.
I know Eva Ekbom died on December 28, 1836 in Jakob och Joannes parish. (She died of "vark," which I am interpreting as some kind of a painful swelling or rhematic disease/complication). It's sad to know how troubled her life was up to that point, but it does seem she was not in prison at the time, at least.
As ever, very grateful for your help...
