In SAG 5, p. 671:
Adriaan MOORHEES van Groningen * 1781 + 7.3.1815 (34.1.25), kommisaris van die
desolate boedelkamer x huwewlikshof, Kaapstad 26.5.1805 Anna Barbara SMUTS
The (34.1.25) is age at death, 31 years, 1 month, 25 days.
He does not appear in "Personalia of the Germans ...", but maybe I am wrong in
thinking that Groningen is in Germany.
There is a biography in DSAB III, which I do not have.
