Background info on Gerhard: Date of birth not certain as records vary. born 05 Jan 1819 in Beek, Gelderland, Netherlands (Source: IGI record) Civil and church records don't always agree. This could easily occur in transcription of records or simple errors in recording. A census record of 1812 (Tien Jarige Tafel) gives his birthdate as 11 Jan 1821.
