Dirk Albertus Johannes LOUBSER (1882-1971):

His gravestone gives his birthday as 19 July 1882, while the baptism record shows 27 July 1882. Since the baptism record seems to be all in the same handwriting, as if it was prepared for sending back or was a copy, I am keeping the date on the gravestone.
