Who ever heard of Jan / Johannes Erbe ?
I have found out that Landau is the place of origin of the progenitor of our family in The Netherlands. He was called Jan/Johannes Erbe and was 25 years of age when he married a Dutch woman in Amsterdam in 1783. They got one sun.
Jan or Johannes Erbe is the ancestor of all Erbé's in The Netherlands. How and why he moved to Amsterdam, is a big question to me. Later he disappeared in the same mysterious way.
I do not exactly know the place he came from (Germany counts four Landaus) and what happened after his disappearance. Who can help me to find an answer to these questions? Any indication will be appreciated.
