Source Notes

On 24/7/14 Sy Scholfield changed the time to 6AM, quoting "Novalis Schriften: Bd. Tagebücher" by Novalis (W. Kohlhammer Verlag, 1975), p. 566: "Aus dem Kirchenbuch Oberwiederstedt (Taufregister) 1772. 2ten May ist geboren Georg Philipp Friedrich, des Herr H. U. Erasmus von Hardenberg mit dessen Frau Gemahlin Auguste Bernhardine v. Hardenberg geb. v. Bölzig erzeugtes Söhnlein früh um 6 Uhr getauft den 3 Mai..."

Translation: From the church book Oberwiederstedt (baptismal records) 1772 2nd May was born Georg Philipp Friedrich, of Mr. HU Erasmus von Hardenberg and his wife Auguste Bernhardine v. Hardenberg born v. Bölzig born at 6 o'clock in the morning, baptized on May 3 ...

Previous data had 10AM rated C (Orig source not known) quoting Thomas Ring, vol.3.

Taeger (IHL update 3) considers the time of 10.00 am as LAT, but that is only a guess. It would correspond to 9:57 LMT.
