Footnotes (including sources)

‡ General
Ω Birth
  • Bernkastel-Wittlich is in the Rhein Pfalz area, well to the south of Krefeld where Catharina and Abraham married. (23 July 1679, Evangelische Church Krefeld per Ancestry Germany Marriage data base). At the time Krefeld was an exclave of County Moers, lying a few miles south of Moers, and wholly surrounded by other principalities (Julich, the Electorship of Cologne). There are several distinct "Gladbach's", in Germany. Moenschen Gladbach lies near Krefeld. Its more likely that Catharina was born there, rather than in the Rhein Pfalz. I've not found documentary evidence to support her being born in a Gladbach
