Good evening, Judy;
> John was actually Johannus Franciscus Schmitt on his church papers.
He had these names on his catholic church papers ONLY, but not in re-
ality. Catholic baptismal documents latinized the given names of in-
fants. And the priest were not even good at this in most instances. The
proper Latin form for John would not have been Johannus, but Ioannes.
