Closeup of sign post. "Sjösten" can be made out at the bottom. (The other sign post is illegible). The translation is ""Fritz Enander and His Dear wife Mrs Jacobina born [unmarried] Sjösten". Jacobina Sjösteen (1751-1847) was a sister of Berzelius mother Elisabeth Dorothea Sjösteen (1747-1787), and was married to Isak Fredrik Enander (1739-1800) a cavalery captain. Spelling was not as strict in these former times, and an "e" is missing from "Sjösteen," probably to save space on the stone.
