    [This source was given with a birth date of Sept 1643, which I removed when I merged this page with an existing page. This source cited here says literally "Nov. 1643" (see S1), so it doesn't even justify the date of September 1643. One can only guess that some other source was seen specifying the 9th month and that is why the month was changed to September despite this very clear source. It thus appears Sept is a misinterpretation of "9th month", which, at the present time, is considered to be September, but which, prior to 1753, was considered to be November.
