Sy Scholfield quotes from Gespräche In Dem Reiche derer Todten ..., Volume 8 by David Fassmann (1732), p. 181: "Das Licht der Welt erblickete ich Anno Christi 1583. des Nachts zwischen 9. und 10. Uhren vor dem ersten Winter-Monats-Tag, genannt Allerheiligen, auf dem Hause Oldenburg und empfieng bey der heiligen Tauffe die beiden Namen Anton Günther"

(He saw the light of the world in the year 1583 between 9 and 10 o'clock at night, on the eve of the first day of the winter-month [November], All Saints Day, at the house of Oldenburg, and at the holy baptism, received the two names Anton Günther).

Wikipedia gives 10 November which is the same date coverted to the Gregorian calendar.
