Sy Scholfield quotes "Briefwechsel und Dokumente zu Leben und Werk" by Hans-Gert Roloff and ‎Marian Szyrocki (Walter de Gruyter, 1995), p. 203: "Er wurde geboren am 23. September 1605 im Herzogtum Liegnitz und im Dorf Koischwitz, als die Sonne um 8 Uhr abends genauso stand, daß sie noch mit keinem Grad in der Waage war - also gerade bei ihrem Eintritt." [Translation: He was born on 23 September 1605, in the Duchy of Legnica in the village of Koischwitz at 8 o'clock in the evening, with the Sun entering the sign of the Scales.]
