SOURCES:

Tobias's parents' names were on his marriage record. His approximate year of birth was known from his age on censuses. His brother Herman, with whom Tobias was living in 1880, was known to have come from Laehden, so Holte parish records were checked and a corresponding birth/bapt entry was found there also for Tobias.
