When he registered his 1st child he's called Caesar Christoph. With the
2nd child, he is Cesar Christoffel. Caesar was born and baptized as a Leether,
he married as one, signed the militia papers as such, married with that name,
and then reported all his children as the children of C.C. Lether. Between
his marriage in 1818 and the registration of his first child in 1819 he
changed his name to Lether. Strangely enough we do have two death certificates
