Today in Family History - 21 Jan

My 3rd great-grandfather William Vandermade, Sr. (Thompson line) was born on this day in 1834 in Goedereede, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands [1, 2]. Note that his death certificate gives the date as 22 Jan. Since math is required to get this date, I have assumed the grave marker and birth record are correct.

My 4th great-grandparents John Demostinie Anders and Nancy Gilleland (Anders line) were married on this day in 1845 in Montgomery County, Texas [3].
