Comment Joop: Somewhere in the OGS-GS files 16 April was suggested, but that can not be true, it was not a Sunday, I have no clue to the right date, but am sure somebody has; (041015) the answer was provided by Harriet Imrey: date 29 March 1741 (the Rev used Julian-English days-and-dates, but Gregorian years, as in starting with 1 Jan); John Frittstein must be Johannes Wetzstein, Buester is Buser; mail to: Joop any comment; BACK TO INDEX PAGE
