Notes for Johann George Berlin:
George was both a farmer and oilmaker. He grew flax for oil and owned a mill for crushing flax seed for oil which was used for lamps. The crushed seeds could be used as a feed for the farm animals and the flax stock was probably sold to the local weavers. He owned one of the two mills in town. It probably was the one known as the upper town mill.

  Notes for Johann Adam Berlin:
Johann was baptized and amputated on the same day. His mother remained in the pain of labor for three days and suffered greatly, to such an extent that she was so exhausted and unnerved that they began to lose hope that the child birth would take place. That is why they sent to consult Mr. Siebermann, the surgeon at Oberbronn, in order to find out what had to be done in this case; he gave comforting advice, and moreover came in person to try and assist with his own hands.
After some more time had gone by and without any effect having been obtained, the surgeon began to think that the child must have already died and that there may have been a transformation in miscarriage. Only the little arm could be seen and nothing other than a round cupola (dome) could be felt. In this situation, the midwife thought to pull on the little arm that was hanging outside, but she neither succeeded and nor wanted to do it alone. Finally Siebermann used his lancet (surgical instrument) to detach it entirely. Where upon, the little innocent creature, after having this operation, came into the world that very same evening. He was living with one arm amputated and continued to live almost for one whole day.
He was baptized by his grandfather, the former leader of the bar, without any delay because of the danger of death, and received the name Johann Adam.
