Does anyone has the exact date of birth of Catharina Meessen?
She's the last person born in Neutral-Moresnet in 1913 or 1914.

This small country was annexed by Germany in WW1, but given to Belgium in 1920.
I don't find her certificate of birth in the archives.

Adrienne Ledent (1899 - 2011) looked like a very old lady. She was like this for the last 10 years of her life.
