I only see the link to the profile and the baptism record there. Can you put the right link in?

Looking at the sites in the sources, I would say it is a death date. The records appear to indicate death dates and burial places, rather than interment dates.

Primary source is church burial register:

"Netherlands, Overijssel Province, Church Records, 1542-1893," images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-L99W-GXD3?cc=2037905&wc=SBF2-GPJ%3A381641201%2C381641801%2C381914601 : 30 January 2015), Nederlands Hervormd > Zwartsluis > Begraven 1741-1821 > image 101 of 119; Nederlands Rijksarchiefdienst, Den Haag (Netherlands National Archives, The Hague).

No mention of death date, so Jan 9, 1809 must be the date he was buried.

You might also have a look at Zwartsluis, klapper op achternaam geref. begraven,1741-1821 (index on surnames of Dutch reformed burials), where it says (page 32) that his first spouse, Geesjen Gerbrants passed away in 1772, and his second spouse,  Jantje Wildeboer, in 1795.

Hallo Jan, dank je! Ik heb nig veel te leren over archieven en mensen vinden, je hebt me een idee gegeven voor andere mensen die misschien nog niet zo geleerd zijn!
