Per Persson Berglund was born on March 30th, 1812.
"Per Persson Berglund was probably not born in Pitholm, which is in Piteå landsförsamling (rural parish). I don't find him in the birth book at or near the given date. Possibly he was born in Piteå town, but there is a gap in the birth records there from 1806 to 1823 (looks like they lost a whole notebook).
When Per Persson Berglund married Christina Larsdotter, he was a worker from Pitholm, she was a farmer's daughter in Håkansön (where they settled). Piteå landsförsamling EI:4 (1831-1854) Bild 32 / sid 27 (AID: v138664.b32.s27, NAD: SE/HLA/1010154)
When they are first in the book for Håkansön, there is a scribble that makes it possible to figure out where to find him in Pitholm.

His first wife was Anna Fredrika Marklund, born in 1809 and dead 7 March 1840. They had two boys, both named Johan Peter, neither lived to be two months old. They were married in 1835 and came to Pitholm from Piteå town in December 1836.

"I think I found him. There was some misleading info along the way - his birth date had been mistranscribed when he moved. This is what I did:

Per Persson (no Berglund) moved out as #62 to Piteå stad. 2 Nov 1834 (2/11 1834) Born 30/3 1812 (so maybe born in March?) from p. 204 (hidden in the clutter at the bottom) Piteå landsförsamling B:1 utflyttningsbok (1833-1860) Bild 77 / sid 73 (AID: v138636.b77.s73, NAD: SE/HLA/1010154)
So maybe this is him: 30 Mar 1812 Pehr born to bonden (farmer) Pehr Jonsson in Håkansön and its wife Christina Eriksdotter Piteå landsförsamling CI:7 (1804-1815) Bild 130 / sid 250 (AID: v138647.b130.s250, NAD: SE/HLA/1010154)
Working forward from there:

So this connects with the moving-out book; I'm convinced it's him."
