*) Nassau-Weilburg, Hessen, Germany 7 January 1749; baptized at 8 January 1749 in the Lutheran Church of Nassau Weilburg by ref. Johann Casimir Weinrich. Baptizing witnesses are: Heinrich Daniel Dentzer, master dough maker and Maria Elisabeth, wife of master George Christian Billinger, backer. † Spankeren, NL Saturday 11 April 1807; buried 16 April (at the age of 58. If he was born in 1749. The death certificate however stated that he's 62, in that case he was born in 1745) Engaged Brummen, NL 3 October 1789; x) Brummen 25 October 1789 to Aelberdina Reijs, bapt. Brummen 7 November 1756 in the Dutch-German Reformed Church). † Leuvenheim 26 December 1825 at the age 62 years, widow of Hendrik Redeken. Profession: day laborer.

Out of Aelberdina:

  1. Anna Marie
    *) Brummen, 3 February 1789; (bapt.) 8 February 1789 as Anna Marie Reis. x) Spankeren December 31, 1809 (as Maria Lether -living in Soeren- to Teunis Hendriks from Dieren.

    Baptizing witness: Heinrich Daniel Löther. In the foot of the baptizing register of Brummen the note "N.B. Onecht" (illigitimate). This Anna Maria is *) after the death of Hendrik Redeker the 1st husband of Aelberdina. Was he the natural father or was Anna Maria a pre-marriage child of Heinrich and Aelberdina?
    A recognizing by Heinrich as she was his child wasn't possible in that time, because 'erkenning' (recognizing) became actual with the institution of the 'Burgelijk Wetboek' (civil law) on January 1st, 1811.
    Because we don't know the date of death of Hendrik Redeken we are not sure if Anna Maria was his child and Aelberdina's. After the institution of the city administration system a child should be born in 306 days after a divorce or death of the father if they want to carry the name of the father.

    Out of the marriage to Heinrich Daniel:

    *) Spankeren, NL Tuesday 29 September 1801; bapt. 4 October 1801. † Saturday 27 March 1802; buried Spankeren 31 March 1802.

We wouldn't find HD in a Dutch family (re-)naming registers because those registers where dated 1812 and 1826, while HD † in 1807.

The Neder-Duits Gereformeerde Church later became the Nederlands Hervormde Gemeente or Church.

Aelberdina (later also written as Alberdina) was the daughter of Andries Reijs, born Allendorp, Oberhausen, Hessen, Germany abt. 1729; x) Brummen 1 August 1754. and Geertrui Borgers, born Brummen 1733; † 21 July 1792. Aelberdina had two brothers: Johan (born 20 October 1754) and Jacobus (born 5 November 1760). Before she married Heinrich Daniel she already had a daughter Anna Maria Reis, *) Brummen 3 February 1789 and baptized on 8 February 1789. Heinrich Daniel was present as a witness. In a footnote in the Baptizing Register of Brummen it is noted that she was an illegitimate child. That means that she could be a child of Aelberdina and Hendrik Redeken, born within 300 days after his death. It also could be Heinrich's before they where married.

After the death of Heinrich Daniel she re-married for the 3rd time on 24 June 1810 now to Willem Rensink, born Warnsveld around 1772. She lives in Laag Soeren, province of Gelderland, NL then, saying she is only 40 years old, which is not true. Willem Rensink was the widower of Johanna Hagman, age 38 years. He died in 1812.

When her son, Caesar Christoph was born in 1818, she stated to the mayor that she could not read nor write. She was living in Leuvenheim, Gelderland, The Netherlands then and gave her profession as laborer. She died at the age of 62.
