I am wondering if this spelling, Häsjebacka, is the same as Hästbacka in later records? Or is this entirely a separate name? (Found in Terjärv in the 1700's.)
Lisa Andersdotter, born to Anders Häsjebacka 13 Jul 1748, but listed as Gräsinbacka, why? All the other children are Häsjebacka. I could find no Gräsinbacka in Terjärv on Hiski.

Though my knowledge of Terjärv is somewhat limited, Häsjebacka (later listed in Kyrkby, "Church Village") is definitely different farm than Hästbacka in Hästbacka village.

Thanks, Jaska. I've been entering new info into my data and this was the first time I came across this name.

On Hiski for birth of Lisa Andersdotter, she is born on Häsjebacka farm. I even Googled the name Gräsinbacka and got no hits. Also no hits on Hiski under "all", but 2 Gedcoms on Talko have this as her name???

On the north side of the road that goes from Terjärv toward Kolam [Kolamvägen] or in Finnish [Kolamintie], there is a road that is called Krasslandintie or in Swedish, Krassländsvägen. This is the road that also goes to the Emet Folk Park.

Perhaps there is also a farm name with that name, but somehow changed from "G" to "K".

If you search for Terjärv in googlemaps you get a map where you can see Bredbackavägen southwest from to point. Hasjebacka fram is on a hill between Bredbackavägen and Hemsjön lake.
