Source Notes

Church book birth and baptism entry in hand from Sy Scholfield, copy on file (May 2023), recording birth was at "Mittag 1¼ Uhr or Mittag 1½ Uhr" (Midday 1:15 PM or 1:30 PM), the numerals are tiny and blurred.

Previously, Scholfield quoted same time from Friedrich Wilhelm Jähns und Max Jähns: ein Familiengemälde für die Freunde by Max Jähns (W. Baensch, 1906), page 143: "Am Morgen des 18. April 1837, es war an einem Dienstage, wurde Wilhelm durch leises Stöhnen seiner Gattin gewecht, und 20 Minuten nach 1 Uhr mittags war ein kleiner junge da. Als Akkoucheur fungierte der Geheime Sanitätsrat Dr. Karl Mayer."

(On the morning of 18 April 1837, on a Tuesday, Wilhelm was weakened by the slight groan of his wife, and a little boy was there at twenty minutes after one o'clock midday).
