Erland Svensson owned one of the farms under Bosagård when the Great Partition took place in 1830. When Erland died in 1847 he was living with his daughter Anna, who was a widow, at a cottage called Granelund, under Bosagård, which is believed to be the croft later known as Gransbo. The farm Erland had owned in 1830 was now owned by Mattis at Karsagård.[1]

The same year as Erland died his daughter Anna married Johan Peter Gustavsson from Bolmsö.[2] The couple had two sons:[3]

  • Sven Peter (1848-1901)
  • August (1850-1932) died unmarried at the home for the elderly in the village of Odensjö.

Sven stayed at Gransbo and married Sanna Matilda Johannesdotter from Pilsbo.[1] They had five children.

  • David (1884-1965) moved to Halmstad
  • Jenny Maria (1887-1889)
  • Johannes (1889-1965) bookkeeper in Norrköping.
  • Frans Albert (1892-1981) died in Norrköping
  • Ida Maria (1896-1935) married and died in Lidhult

Sven Peter died in 1901 but his widow Sanna Matilda lived until June 1930. In the estate inventory, the cottage was valued at 150 SEK.[4] On September 6, 1930, the croft was bought by Odensjö JUF (a youth organization) for 170 SEK. JUF had their meetings in the cottage but soon made new plans for it. The year after the croft was taken apart and moved to form the foundation of what today is the local rustic community center.[1]
