Sy Scholfield quotes "Leben Valerius Herberger‛s, Predigers am Kripplein Christi zu Fraustadt in Polen" by Carl Friedrich Ledderhose (Velhagen & Klasing, 1851), p. 4: "So viel man weiß , hatte sie fünf Kinder. Keins dieser Kinder ist aber für das Reich Gottes so wichtig geworden, als der Knabe, welcher am 21. April 1562 alten Styls, ungefähr um 10 Uhr Morgens am Tage Fortuna», Dienstags nach Jubilate, geboren worden ist, Unserm Valerius Herberger, der alles sinnig und erbaulich zu deuten wußte, war sein Geburtstag von hoher Bedeutung."

Translation: So far as is known, they had five children. But none of these children has become so important for the kingdom of God, as the boy, who on April 21, 1562 Old Style, about 10 o'clock in the morning on this fortunate Tuesday was born, Our Valerius Herberger, who knew how to interpret everything thoughtfully and edifying, so his birthday is of great importance.
