I am trying to find out the name of the family before it was Djerf. On the family web site, http://www.jurvansuu.net/, there is a page with Djerf and soldier names. I do not understand what the chart means. Maybe this is more a question for translation.

Kiitos, Mary

It looks that the origin of soldier Lars Ericsson Djerf is not known :(
That is often the case for soldiers, unfortunately.
The name is a typical soldier name that doesn't give any clue - djerf, in modern Swedish spelling djärv = bold.
