Thanks for the contribution to the Damman profile. Hopefully someone will add the rest of the children.

Selsing is probably Selsingen (no Selsing in the Kingdom of Hanover). Also, Christian Dammann would need some explanation: How come the family lived in the Kingdom of Hanover where all other children were born, and then there is one child born in the Prussian Province of Pomerania in between all the other Children (about 220 miles away). He was born in 1864 and the Kindom of Hanover did not become a province of Prussia until 1866. And Hanover and Prussia were not on friendly terms, in fact they were fighting on opposite sides in the Austro-Prussian War of 1866 that let to the annexation of Hanover to Prussia.
