Transcription of part of the estate inventory

I found the estate inventory for an ancestor today, and it is very difficult to read. I'm mostly interested in the living heirs. He got 15 children (as I have found so far). If I'm right it says in the inventory

"närvarande änkan dygdesamma hustru Karna Nilsdotter ? ? ? barn och arfvingarna.

Sonen Nils 22 år gammal ut från giftet gamla

dottern ? Hanna gift med Jeppa Larsson i Tullstorp.

af? ? giftet

sonen Lars 14 år gammal

dito Jöns 11 år

dito Nils 6 år

dito Per 2 år"

and then there are a couple of sentences I don't understand.

Could anyone verify if I understood the above somewhat correctly?

Thanks / Maria

Edit: here's the arkivdigital id for the estate inventory:
Vemmenhögs häradsrätt (M) FIIb:9 (1749-1760) Bild 77 / sid 11 (AID: v160168.b77.s11, NAD: SE/LLA/10068)

Edit again: is it normal for him to have two living sons called Nils? I've only noticed children getting names of dead siblings. But the two Nils' have different mothers.

About the two Nils-es: it isn't common, but it does happen. I know I have somewhere a family where the eldest and the youngest daughter are both named Anna. Different mothers there as well. It always makes you want to doublecheck an extra time.

I'll go look at the inventory.
Edit: whoo, that's some spidery writing!

"närvarande änkan dygdesamma hustru Karna Nilsdotter med BLOB öfver(?) afl. mannens barn och arfvingar.

Sonen Nils 22 år gammal af förra giftet
jämte
dottern hustru(?) Hanna gift med Jeppa Larsson i Tullstorp.

af sednare giftet
sonen Lars 14 år gammal

å hvilkas vägnar såsom fädernes-fränder, Anders Hanson(? or is it Larson? or??)  i Born (or Bara?) Frid(??)berga, samt Nils Mårtenss. och Hans Frantss. från S. Vedige(??) sig äfven infinna."

I'm really fudging it as concerns the names and homesteads of the trustees - you can probably figure them out properly by looking at what villages and farms there are in the vicinity.
So if there were fifteen children to begin with, these are the survivors.
Yes. I wanted to know what children to focus further research on :)

Thank you very much for taking your time to do this Eva!!!
Pity they didn't write their nicest script (as in the name of the deceased) all over :)
