Disappear to anywhere

Lars Larsson and Kerstin Persdotter got two sons, another Lars and Sven. Kerstin´s son Lars from her first marriage died, when he was 13. Mentioned i the death book as a stepson of Lars Larsson in Amundeby. The farm where this family lived was a maintaining farm, which meant that the owner was obliged to hold a horse and a soldier for the swedish army. At this time Sweden has a military system based on professional soldiers, which the farmers were provided for.
Lars Larsson had a younger brother namned Anders Larsson. In the year of 1718 he married Kerstin´s daughter Karin. This couple left Amundeby, but where did they go?
The Swedish Church Records are in a good condition, but now and then a person or two will be missing without any explanation.
