Anton Ryberg was born on February 11, 1838 in Göteborgs Domkyrkoförsamling, Göteborg och Bohus län, Sweden to Lars Ryberg and Ingrid Lena Olsdotter. He was their first child. Anton was baptized two days later; Andreas Carlsson, Edward Olsson, Elin Westergren, and Anna Catharina Christiensson were made godparents.
During his short life, Anton lived with his parents in Göteborgs Domkyrkoförsamling.
Lars and Ingrid Lena were devastated when Anton passed away a little more than a month after his birth, on March 17, 1838. Cause of death was given as slag.
His grief-stricken parents tearfully buried him on March 25.
