Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Årsböcker i Svensk Undervisningshistoria - Volumes 51-53" (1937), p. 53: "Jag föddes i Skara den 8 november 1837. Mina föräldrar bodde då i ett hus midt emot den stora västra portalen till domkyrkan, och min mor har ofta berättat, att jag föddes, just då klockan i domkyrkotornet började ringa aftonringningen klockan nio."

Translation: I was born in Skara on 8 November 1837. My parents lived in a house opposite the great western portal of the cathedral, and my mother has often told me that I was born just as the clock with the Tower bells started ringing at nine o'clock in the evening.
