SOURCES: Bernard Heinrich's parents' names were not on his marriage record at St Francis Xavier parish. His date of birth was on his tombstone and that corresponded with an entry for someone with his name listed on the 1839 Dalum, Hesepe census. The records for Gross Hesepe parish were checked and a baptismal entry was found there for Bernard Heinrich born 2 days before the tombstone date. His parents' names, as given above, were taken from that record. This ID is supported by the fact that Bernard Heinrich was godfather for other children born to the same couple and he also appears to have raised a child of a daughter of that couple.

SOURCES: This ID is not 100% certain because Johan Bernard's parents names were not on his marriage record at St Francis Xavier parish and an exact date of birth is not known for him from any US document. His age on the 1860 Cole County census corresponded to that of Johan Herman, son of Johan Bernard Brand and Maria Poetker, on the 1839 Dalum census and this couple was known to have settled in Cole County. Johan Heinrich Brand, thought to be a son of this couple, was witness at Johan Bernard's marriage and Bernard Heinrich, another son of this couple, and his wife Elisabeth were godparents for Johan Bernard's two children. Gross Hesepe parish records were checked and a corresponding birth/baptism entry was found there for Johan Bernard. The children were baptized at St Francis Xavier parish.
