The priest wrote the following entry about the maid Inger in the 1842 Glimåkra’s parish death book. Neither the priest or Inger knew who she was.

On September 12, 1842, the maid Inger Anonymidotter (daughter of an unknown person) in Glimåkra died after a very difficult birth of a child who was born out of wedlock and stillborn. Inger had wandered from her home as a child but she did not know where she came from. No one was sure or had any information about who she could be. She was thought to be around 26 years old. She prepared for her first communion and was confirmed in this parish. She was buried on the 17th of September.
