||DaniŽl LANGENBERG  |
||20 Nov 1776
||Zwolle, Overijssel, Netherlands
- Unlike his other siblings DaniŽl was born in Zwolle in 1776 as a result of his parents fleeing the 1776 floods in Koekoek which eventually saw much of the city of Zwolle, the Overijssel capital, and vicinity inundated. The flood of 1825 was to far surpass the 1776 flood in magnitude. (see notes below)

- DaniŽl Langenberg proclaimed in the Lutheran Church of Kampen on the 8th, 15th and 22nd of November 1807 his intententions of marriage.
It was recorded that; 'D. Langenberg from Zwolle, living in Koekoek, and Hermina Harms Jong 'Daughter' (this indicates Hermina had not been previously married) from Zalk, will marry on the 29 November 1807.'
A confirmation letter from W.H. Schlosser, Mayor (or equivalent) of Zalk states that on the 6 November 1807 DaniŽl and Hermina were in 'ondertrouw' (dutch) which means they have had the banns published.
The Church wedding of DaniŽl and Hermina took place on the 29 November 1807 at the Lutheran Church in Kampen. [1, 4]
Banns of Marriage
(Latin bannum, pl. bann-a,-i from an Old English verb, bannan, to summon).
In general the ecclesiastical announcement of the names of persons contemplating marriage. Its object is to discover any impediments to a proposed marriage; incidentally, it makes known to all duly interested in the latter the fact of its near celebration.
- In February 1825 DaniŽl and his family perished as a result of a great flood which extended over large tracts of Overijssel. Their bodies were found days later in the vicinity of Zwolle.
The flooding was catastrophic, river dikes broke in numerous locations and in many places the water crested the dikes, flowing over with high speed while the water mass and debris destroyed everything in its path. In some low-lying areas such as IJsselmuidenís Koekoekspolder, where DaniŽl's family lived, the inundation reached well over 9 feet.
The flood inundated about a third of Overijssel and also large parts of neighbouring Drenthe and particularly Friesland. Two thirds of Friesland was flooded as a result of as many as thirty breaches in the Frisian main sea dike. In Friesland 17 people drowned and the land was untenable for farming for more then ten years. A year after the flood the large expanses of stagnant water brought malaria and the subsequent loss of more than 4,000 individuals in Friesland alone.The plight of Overijssel shortly after was exhaustively detailed by author J. ter Pelkwijk, a graduate of the University of Harderwijk. Commissioned by the Overijsselís governor, Ter Pelkwijk in his book 'Overijssels Watersnood' covered the entire flooded region in a step-by-step account, identifying the dike breaches, sometimes even the extent of the breach, naming nearly all those who perished including DaniŽl Langenberg and his family, itemizing the damage done to farms and homes, and detailing stories of heroic rescues as well as tales of great personal tragedies.
In the book it is written that DaniŽl Langenberg and his family lived near the 'high plank bridge' at the western end of Koekoek [on a farm called 'Goede Hoop' (Good Hope)]. DaniŽl and his heavily pregnant wife and four children took refuge in a 'bok' (a type of boat) that was fastened to the plank bridge. The severe flooding resulted in the plank bridge and supporting piles giving way forcing DaniŽl to unfasten the 'bok'. The family drifted in the 'bok' for one to one and a half hours towards a house in Wekeren where the 'bok' sank in a strong eddy, six bodies were found here.
Daniel and Hermina's 16 year old daughter Harmpjen (Hermpjen) was the sole survivor. The bodies of the family were found over subsequent days and weeks. The body of nine year old daughter Annigje was found on the 18 February 1825 at 5.00 pm at Wekeren, Mastenbroek. The bodies of DaniŽl and his twelve year old son, Jan, were found on the 23 February 1825 at 4.00 pm near the house standing in Wekeren. The body of six year old Aaltje was found on the 21 April 1825 at 3.00 pm at Mastenbroek/Zwollerkerspel. The body of 3 year old Grietje was found at Westenholte. [1, 6]
