Sy Scholfield quotes "Moritz von Sachsen-Marschall von Frankreich" by Gerd Treffer (Pustet Friedrich KG, 2005), p. 30: "Am 28. Oktober 1696 kommt im Haus von Heinrich Christoph Winkel in Goslar ein Kind zur Welt. ... Der Knabe erhält den Namen Moritz. Im Taufregister steht: „Den achtundzwanzigsten October, im Jahr Sechzehnhundertsechs- undneunzig Abends zwischen sieben und acht Uhr ist von der vornehmen Frau in N. Heinrich Christoph Winkels Haus ein Söhnchen geboren worden."

Translation: On October 28, 1696 in the house of Heinrich Christoph Winkel in Goslar a child was born. ... The boy was named Moritz. The baptismal register reads: 'On the twenty-eighth of October, in the year sixteen hundred and ninety-six in the evening between seven and eight o'clock has been born of the noblewoman wife of Heinrich Christoph Winkel a son.'
