SOURCES:

Johan Gerhard's date of birth was on his tombstone. His parents were not named on his marriage record at Sts Peter and Paul parish but one of the witnesses was H H Rawe who was married to Anna Maria Pranger. Anna Maria had a half-brother with the same name who would have been the same age as this Johan Gerhard, whose year of emigration on the 1900 census was the same year as Anna Maria's. Because Anna Maria's family was known to have lived in Gross Stavern (1852 census), Soegel parish records were checked and a corresponding birth/baptism record was found there for Johan Gerhard 4 days later than the birthdate on his tombstone.
