Original record said Taeger quotes Thomas Ring for 9:26 AM with no source given; In March 2008, Sy Scholfield quotes Warren R. Maurer's book, "Understanding Gerhart Hauptmann" (Univ. of South Carolina Press, 1992), p. 5: "Gerhard Johann Robert Hauptmann (at birth his first name was spelled with a final d) was born around noon on Saturday, November 15, 1862, ... his birthplace [was] the spa hotel Zur Preupischen Krone (Prussian Crown) in Ober-Salzbrunn, Silesia." The same data and approximate time is given in Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Behl & Felix A. Voigt's earlier book, "Chronik von Gerhart Hauptmanns Leben und schaffen" (Bergstadtverlag, 1957), p. 7: "Um die Mittagsstunde ["around noon"], am 15. November 1862 wurde Gerhart Hauptmann zu Ober-Salzbrunn im Hotel „Zur Krone" (später „Preußische Krone") geboren."
