william's parents were johan wilhelm b aug 11,1745 m gertjen (gertrude) klum aug 8, 1773 d may 18, 1812 buried kinderhook cemetery ny. also note that he was previously married to christina klum on apr 29,1770 ( my guess is that she died in chilbirth) when i visited their graves i didn't know about chritina so i didn't look for her grave, but johan wilhem who used William is buried next to gertrude. it is interesting to me that gertude and william died one day apart may 17 Gr, may 18, wm 1812..war? buggy accident? would love to know.
